Personally, I'm now broke haha. In 2010 we had a house fire and I ended up throwing out most of my cards except for my Flyers and inserts, etc. So this set actually fits in quite well with the stuff I kept. I had saved up money and after some expenses (getting engaged, paying back a tiny piece of my student loans, gifts for other people, and of course paying my bar renewal fee) I thought to myself "I haven't bought myself a single thing with the money I made (besides one new blank jersey)" so I decided to buy what I could. I can always make more money (hopefully), but I can't make them produce more of this set.

Now if you were not so much a collector as you were someone who looks to flip the product, the box prices are going up and the cards themselves are worth something since (a) you cannot get a full set with a case and (b) limited production run and variants make collectors wanting more. So it would be an investment you could probably make money on.

Even if you don't want to sell them, you have to figure at least each autograph or memorabilia card is $10 or so (not including variants or big players) and you get 6 per box ($60), plus 8 base cards (even without gold versions) maybe $3 each (more for bigger players) so average $24 (total $84 which is what you would get them for pre-order).

You can rationalize anything, just depends on if you want to pay the money for cards or something else.

You are really undervaluing a kidney.

Though your answer is that the board is a diverse group of individuals of varying ages and salaries. Old people with jobs are on here too.

What is like the best possible card you could get in this set? I guess rarest or just an obivous OMG card (like a Clarke/Parent/Howe/Barber jersey or something).

My 'best' card that I pulled was a black game-used emblem from Tony Amonte.

Got notable autos from Brad Marsh and Scott Mellanby.

I have a Zezel autograph from another ITG product years ago when he was still playing. What I want are Shero, Smith, Pelle, Ashbee ...

But still older cup winning players autographs and/or jersey stuff is quite good especially when you consider you have a better chance at getting every piece of Stock's jersey and every Goodenough autograph.

I'm sure this has been asked/posted before, but where can you get a hold of one of these boxes? I think I am going to break down and get one...
