    Question about 2011 Ultimate Collection Legends autos

    This set is obviously inspired by the 1997 UD Legends football auto set, which I've been working on for about a year. I still have a long way to go on the football (it's 160+ cards), but I'm thinking about starting on the hockey one as a side project.

    What I'm wondering is how much I should expect to pay for the real SP superstars like Gretzky, Beliveau or Roy. I've had to shell out in the $200 range for guys like Tony Dorsett and Larry Csonka, and almost $1K for Joe Montana while Payton is eventually going to cost me at least $2,500. I'm just wondering how hard the hit is going to be when it comes to chasing the hockey set.

    Okay, I'll keep an eye on Ebay to see what comes up and how much they end up going for. I'll probably start picking off some of the cheaper ones, but I won't chase Gretzky or the other high-enders until I've got this football set finished. Will probably be 2016 by the time I'm done...lol.

    Yeah, I wonder if anyone cam chime in on that or if anyone has completed the set. I know the football set had the same thing, with at least a few not produced. The most interesting one there was Mike Webster, who apparently never sent them back to Upper Deck but instead just gave some out to friends and family...some have trickled back out, but they're tough to find.

    Another question on this one - I see a Brett Hull on Ebay at $399 OBO.

    Any idea if this is super-SPed? Seems high to me.

    Craig thats the SP level list. I was contemplating doing this set when it came out but other things came up. The group C's can be had for 25$ and under some times very cheap like under 10$ .Some of the group B's can go for cheap as well the most expensive being Clark, Clarke and Robinson but still only 30-40$ sometimes for less. With group A you are looking at 50$ and up for each, with Lindros, Brett Hull, Roy and Gretzky being the most expensive. The Gretzky is going to be a 275-400$ card not the 500-1000 as compared to the brushstrokes which is a more sought after and coveted set. As for the Hull thats up for 399 BIN/BO I'd say he is fishing given the fact the set has been out for a while and isn't busted much now.

    Mike - thanks for the help, and for posting the breakdown. I think I'll see what I can find from the B/C groups for now, and I'll probably wait on most of those Group A ones unless a great deal comes along.

    I just thought it would make a cool accompaniment along with the football one, and there's also a basketball one that I might worry about down the road...it took me 15 years to even start the football set, so it's not like I'm in a rush!
