Best Product Of 2012?
Hey guys, I really felt like talking hockey so I thought I would make this thread. If you like you can post you opinion on your fav product of the year! Mine would have to be titanium. I know it is not the best product but I love the variation of cards you can get! If anyone wants to trade just lmk!

All depends on who you are and what you collect? For me so far it was Forever Rivals, except for half of it :D
Affordable stuff.......... O-Pee-Chee, every pack was an adventure
Panini Elite was very nice looking
Ummmmmmm yah that's all I got

I'm going to say Score. Every box I had I got value and fun out of. There are some extremely nice hits, I managed to pull a Brodeur auto and an auto of Gaunce, and the short print rookies 1 per box sell well. Generally speaking, it's a very fun to bust product with some insanely rare hits (Score Blacks, photo variation base, etc.) and for a low end product was very, very solid. $30 a box = worth every second.
I also liked Contenders, especially at the price now, with the booklets and dual autos!
As far as a product that was consistent, Titanium is up there, and UD did a really good job with Artifacts.
The most underrated product has to be Certified and Rookie Anthology. The boxes were good, and had some nasty hits.

I agree with flopfish about the 11-12 Score boxes. I only bought two boxes but in my first box I pulled a Landeskog Hot Rookie Auto! This was before I was on this site, so I put it on ebay and I think I remember it selling for $50? Almost double the price of the box! Second box I pulled a Paajarvi base auto and got $10 for it. Very fun break and very good value.Major PC - James Sheppard, Jonathan Huberdeau
Minor PC - Nathan Beaulieu, Nathan MacKinnon

I just got back into the hobby in the past three months and have broken about a half a dozen boxes of various product in that time. I'd have to say my favorite break was a close tie between Titanium because you know your getting something in every pack so I was excited for every pack and SPx. SPx for me was a super fun break because you know your getting at least two rookie cards and at least one is going to be an auto. I also broke a box of Rookie Anthology, Upper Deck Series 1 and Score.Tradelist: Hidden Content

I have to agree with Prime. I think the prime colors cards (for a memorabilia card) are as nice as they come.Sam
