    I've got to say..... the Prioirity Signings, no interest anymore. Long lines, and just not worth waiting around for them.

    That last one, the Edmonton Oilers collection, it's got me interested. Oilers Jersey?? Yeah, I've got a few. I wasn't going to bust another box of Oilers Collection (I've done about 15, so far) now I'm kinda tempted. Probably means being there first thing on the Friday though - which I typically don't do. Have a week to decide :)

    That's why they make you line up and kill one to two hours of your valuable show time to get one. They really care.

    The want list at this link features what I need of Giroux, Couturier, Ottawa Senators, and Miscellaneous set. If you have nothing from it I will consider CFL cards, current Senators, Carey Price, Guy Lafleur, Patrick Roy (Habs), vintage hockey (pre 1970) and trade bait.

    Thanks and Happy Trading.

    A very weak Priority Signings list compared to recent years.
    It seems to be more focused on case breakers than the regular collector.

    The UD redemption is by far the worst redemption program at the expo:

    1) You must buy superoverpriced products at the expo
    2) You can only redeem during specific times => queues are light years long
    3) Value of redemptions is low compared to box prices

    I think Panini had the best program: a lot of diverse redemptions with great value, no queues, can come any time, can bring your own boxes. Too bad they are apparently not coming anymore due to losing the license. ITG redemption program is also good, but the design of their cards has not changed in decades, so it is a bit boring.

    Your posts always entertain me. Serious question, do you work for UD?

    I agree with what others have said, very weak checklist. I'm heading to the expo for the first time and I've seen a handful of collectors pull Orrs, gretzkys and what not but this coming expo there isn't even a slight chance unless you shell out 1,000$+ for a case. I guess I do a redemption when the lines die down (gotta make my 5 hour flight worth it!) but it looks like I'll have more $$ for singles
