A HOT BOX......! In retail?
Short story first
Stopped at Target before meeting up with family visiting and figured id kill some time.
Upon entering the card aisle I said whats normally said and thats " gosh darnit no hockey again!" But i examimed more and loe and behold a UD series one tin tucked behind the usual baseball and basketball boxes. I needed a tin to store cards in and figured why not break some packs while at it so I bit the bait.
$30 plus tax should have read the price scanner thought it would have been $20
Anyway I just got home and busted it open.
First pack had a jersey so i saved it
Lucic and Eberle Silver Skates
Heatly and Couture MVP
Horton and Kippersof Canvas
Kreider YG, Sven Baertschi YG, Silfverberg YG canvas
And the jersey was of Trevor Daley
Not the best GU but still beat the odds and thats actually my first Dallas GU card. Got an extra MVP as well as YG. Great YGs hit as well. Nothing is for trade or sale at the moment thanks for reading if you did ;)MAIN PC: Torey Krug, Ryan Spooner, David Krejci MINOR PC: Other Currrent Bruins

Definitely not a "hot Box" as I've pulled multiple colored refractor autos out of baseball blasters.
But 100% an awesome hit in a box youre not expecting a hit from!

^^ Upper Deck Series 1 doesn't have "multiple coloured refractor autos" in the product. The reference to other sports lines doesn't really hold a lot of validity to it.
Definitely a strong tin - you got some nice boosts with the GU and the Canvas YG (GU are 1:48 and so are the Canvas YG's right?) and it's pretty rare that you see three of the top RC's bunched together like that. I was pleasantly surprised to see how solid Silfverberg sells, so good on you for nailing that nice parallel.

;) ;) ;) But Seriously
I was simply giving an example of a "hot box"
So the GU is about 1:4 tins right? I'd definitely say that you killed the odds, but wouldn't call it a hot box. To me. A Hot box is a box that contains 2-4 autos but comes with 6-8 autos
