For a couple of packs, that wasn't bad. You hit 2/3 of the autographs out of the box.
I personally plan to get the 6 Irbe cards released in the product and forget that it ever existed. Timed so close to BTP, I prefer not to divide my funds on this but have to. My Irbe collection is like blood and oxygen to me.

I think, much like Irbefan, I'm just going to pick up singles on here or eBay and not worry about busting any of this, unless price drops significantly. I find the myriad selection of inserts to be pretty confusing (remember trying to figure out what a Row 1 looked like vs Row 2 and if a Row 0 that wasn't numbered was rarer than a Legacy numbered out of 199 or whatever?) - there's a reason why they didn't repeat these designs! The auto checklist is just horrible, plus they are all stickers from what I've seen so far - I can and will get that from Score for half the price. Unless you hit a Jambalaya or PMG or one of the few star autos from this, I suspect it will be very difficult to even get half your money back on this. The base design is uninspiring and Ultra in general is only a tiny bit more exciting than Collector's Choice as a brand.
I'll just keep looking for deals on 11/12 wax and wait for Decades 90s and maybe a couple boxes of SPA and Score.LF this ITG Decades 1980's Autograph: AMM2 - Mark Messier CAN SP. Also need many Emblems and Numbers from ITG Decades 1980's and may need Quads, Golds or other low print runs from that set.
PC includes Sakic, Vaive, Salming, Lafleur, Shutt and anyone named Stastny except Yan. Also buying Tokarski rookie year cards if priced right.

thanks a lot for your comments. don't really know what to do with this set yet.... I found the cards really cool but so many inserts... it's ridiculous to do so many differents inserts. I've buy more packs today, and was lucky this time with an hardware of nuge + auto rookies of rynnas. everything is in the bucket. The autos can be traded easyli
