A pretty solid case I think. I'm very impressed with the buyback and auto card quality. Also the card presentation is impressive too. Looking forward to your comments...
Thanks for the look

I definitely think you did better on your case than I did. Congrats!

There are some amazing art/memorabilia cards out of those breaks. Every one of them is a masterpiece. Stamkos auto and the dual GU are also pretty sweet buyback hits.

Nice break How much are cases going for ?

Currently they are about $1000. I'd wait a bit as I'm pretty sure they'll be coming down in price. I'd open another case myself but not at that price...

You killed it compared to me..pretty sure i'd done cracking for a while after this one. Did 8 packs, lucky to get back the cost of 3. It happens

You have one per box that is quite nice. The Tambellini, Bengt Gustafsson, Don Murdoch Rookies and players like that are all 30 cent fillers.
The Georges Vezina Final Game, The Stevie and Mats duo, and the Stamkos - fantastic -and fallen star is very unique.
