Okay over time whenever I saw one of these at 11.98 I picked it up, 23 is way too much of this type of product in one shot but over time not a waste of money. I probably have at least 6 complete sets with lots of gold, silver and bronze parallel's plus a few gold rainbow parallel's. I will just list the 23 hits, relic's and autograph's I want you guys and gals to tell me whether I would make a profit, lose money or break even if I were to just sell the hits here goes.

it doesnt look like you hit any of the big autos steve- and unfortunately, lots of these autos and jersies are finding their way into dollar bins at card shows...i grabbed several at the national for under a buck per... its a niche product and with there being 3 years until the next winter games...

profit- doubtful

breaking even- doubtful

fun pulling stuff from retail- definite

Thanks for the reply Ed, I figured with the 11.98 price tag I wasn't taking too much of a risk, like you said unfortunately I couldn't hit any of the really big name auto's the Miller, Gold and Hamlin aren't bad though.

not at all- hamlin is your best one. bode has been in other sets, and he laid quite the egg back in feb.

Yeah I don't think you'll break even, but if you hang on to them until the next Winter Olympics they may pick up a bit. I'm interested in a few if you are interested in trading at all, or possibly I'd buy.
