    07/08 the cup is my fav.

  4. Habsrule7433 May 7, 2009 at 2:20 pm #

    That’s a tough one. I’d have to go with 08/09 Artifacts as there’s really nice pulls in every box, and even though it’s a bit more expensive you usually get your money’s worth with the memorabilia.

  5. mikkokoivunut May 7, 2009 at 2:24 pm #

    my favorite hockey box is 05-06 upper deck series 1 hockey. i like that product b/c of the great young guns that it had like Crosby and Ovechkin. Almost every pack had an insert, and you got 3 jerseys per box!
    so ya….thats why i like it

  6. Johnny8242 May 7, 2009 at 2:42 pm #

    My favorite product is 2007-2008 UD Series 1 had so many good young guns.

  7. William Noetling May 7, 2009 at 2:58 pm #

    My favorite is Luc Robitaille’s Topps RC – I have one in a nice display with a photo-puck and it looks freaking awesome. In fact it’s one of the few Hockey Cards that I have on display, since my beloved Kings stink on ice lately.

  8. Steve Centurioni May 7, 2009 at 4:04 pm #

    Favorite Box was 2005-06 The Cup Hockey. It had Sidney Crosby and Ovechkin RCs along with all the GOATs…

  9. Pyromaniac42 May 7, 2009 at 4:25 pm #

    My favourite hockey card box would have to be 08-09 ITG Between the Pipes. The hits in this product are absolutely fantastic. I seen many boxes opened and the hits are always sick.

  10. Ryan Gerhard May 7, 2009 at 4:50 pm #

    My favorite box of all time is 01-02 Topps Heritage. I loved the look of the cards and it’s actually a set that I ended up getting completely signed in person based on the look. With Datsyuk and Kovalchuk rookies it just was great. Thats along with the Stadium Club set from the same year just based on the photography are amazing.

  11. Devon Neudorf May 7, 2009 at 7:32 pm #

    My favourite box of cards is 07-08 Hot Prospects!! I love this product because you get a nice RC AU Patch /399 or /199 in every box andthe Rookie Class was very good last year!

    Thanks and I hope I win!


  12. Devon Neudorf May 7, 2009 at 7:35 pm #

    My favourite box of all time was 07-08 Hot Prospects because you get a nice RC AU Patch /399 or /199 and a hit in almost every pack! Last year’s Rookie class was very good too!

    Thanks and I hope I win!!


  13. C. Tempey May 7, 2009 at 9:01 pm #

Overall, thx for givin these away and i hope i win!

  14. Sarah Oberg May 7, 2009 at 9:12 pm #

    My favorite product is ITG Between The Pipes. Absolutely love the past three years of the stuff. Great chances to get nice autos and GU of great goalies and a chance to see the up and coming crop of goalies, love it.

    Thanks, Sarah

  15. Joe Holman May 7, 2009 at 9:49 pm #

    My favorite Hockey product has to be Trilogy, especially 07-08 — I love the look of the cards!

    My favorite hockey card box is definitely 97/98 Zenith Hockey. Pinnacle’s “Dare to Tear” concept was way ahead of its time. Collectors of A&G and Topps Treasury know the feeling of tearing a card to find an even cooler card inside (it’s a gamble, sometimes it’s a common). I remember busting boxes of this stuff to make both sets (the 5×7 & the regular set). Eleven years later, it has lost a little bit of its luster… but it still contains both Lecavalier and Luongo’s key rookie cards.

  19. Brandon C May 8, 2009 at 3:21 am #

    favorite product is the up has the best patches and awsome looking cards

  20. Lewis Fussell May 8, 2009 at 3:29 am #

    *******My favorite box is the 2005-06 The Cup because it has Alexander Ovechkins best rookie card and I love the way he plays the game.*******

  21. Curtis Arney May 8, 2009 at 1:18 pm #

    My favorite Box is 2005-06 The Cup Hockey. It has Sidney Crosby and Alexander Ovechkin RCs! That product is just sick with great hits!

  22. Chad King May 8, 2009 at 3:07 pm #

    My favorite box is probobaly 08-09 artifacts. They have alot of greats hits 3 per box and 1 auto. You get an insert/jersey in every pack cant go wrong wiht that


  23. Luke Eichas May 8, 2009 at 3:42 pm #

    My favorite box would Be ITG Between The Pipes 06-07, I am a HUGE Goalie collector and this product goes over and beyond my expectations, every box ive opened has been outstanding, It has a reasonable price per box which is also a great aspect!

  24. Mike May 8, 2009 at 3:42 pm #

    I would have to say my favorite box is 05/06 The Cup. The cards are fabulous in that set. Real quality memorabilia stuff!!

    I must say though my favorite brand is still Pacfic. The made so many awesome set throughout the years. Luxury Suite, Adrenaline, Calder, Heads Up etc..

    1995-96 Upper Deck Ice box

  26. Francois Carignan May 8, 2009 at 8:18 pm #

    my favorite box I ever got was my first box ever: Upper Deck 05-06 series 2. I was 16 years old. I absolutely loved Alex Ovechkin even if I was (and still am) a big habs fan: the first box I ever bought with my own money was AWESOME : Alex Ovechkin 088/ 100 parallel. The man of the shop took an hour to convince me to sell it to him and he bought me it for 375$. And even more special, in the same box, a Ryan Getzlaf Rookie Ink that I still have in my possession. These two players are now my favorites and I collect them, even if Alexander The Great’s cards are very expensive. So Upper Deck series 2005-2006 are my favorite boxes because I never, in 5 boxes, got a card that was not worth below 40$, and got two cards in the first one that I will never forget. And by the way, what is ironic is that I saw MY Ovechkin card (the 088/ 100 parallel) again in one of my best friend’s collection! I was amazed by the coincidence!

    Francois, Sherbrooke, Qc, Can
    *two little errors: it was 375$ and the code was 088/100…

  27. Jimmy Kokos May 8, 2009 at 11:18 pm #

    My opinion for the best box of all time would be………….. most definitley 05/06 UD series 2 retail. You would get 30 packs for a very decent price. And the best part was in every single box you hit a rookie (subset) of Crosby or Ovechkin. Never Disapointed! Always Happy! Wallet Happy!

  28. Mike May 8, 2009 at 11:19 pm #

    Great break! My favorite was an early 2000’s Upper Deck (I forget exact year) where I pulled a Mike Bossy jersey card. He is one of my favorite Islanders.

  29. K. Miller May 9, 2009 at 1:52 pm #

    My favourite box of hockey cards would have to be 2005/06 Upper Deck ICE. I always pull quality stuff out of those boxes. UD ICE is my favourite brand every year. I just love the plexi rookies and autos. Not to mention the level 1 rookies being some of the most sought after rookie cards of the year.

  30. Joshua Keasler May 10, 2009 at 9:56 am #

    At the risk of really making myself feel old, I have great memories of busting the 90-91 upper deck. For me this was the good ole days. Looking forward to the weekend, my dad picking me up and taking me to the local hobby shop and leaving with a box of the UD to split with my little bro. We were always chasing the ever elusive rookie cards of Federov, Lindros or a card of the Great One. Who knew the 1st two would be such a bust? I know the cards of todays era have much more to offer as far a g/u and auto but the memories of a time when we were all trading at lunch time and it was a passion not a business is really what draws me to this product.

  31. marco May 10, 2009 at 3:53 pm #

    my faveorite box would have to be 05/06 upper deck series 2

    ovechkin got me interested in hockey again and getting the young gun in my first box was a big thrill

  32. J. Sellers May 10, 2009 at 6:44 pm #

    I’ve always loved Be-A-Player. I got into hockey cards in the late 90s and I became a huge Avalanche fan. Although I never pulled a Roy, Sakic, or Forsberg auto, I’ve never given up on Be-A-Player and their numerous autos per box.

  33. Ondra May 11, 2009 at 3:55 pm #

    Score 95/96 because it was my first

  34. Andrew Lee May 11, 2009 at 7:14 pm #

    my favorite hockey set is 06/07 spx. it had some good rookies and a nice design to the cards

  35. david r May 11, 2009 at 11:35 pm #

    90/91 upper deck was my fav…

  36. Jonathan Cournoyer May 12, 2009 at 9:03 am #

    My favorite box of all time is 07-08 Upper Deck Ice. Bough several box and always got amazig cards. Also the design is just incredible.

    Love ICE product.

  37. Hassan Shah May 13, 2009 at 9:05 am #

    Hi DacardWorld,
    My favorite box is 2007/08 Upper Deck NHL Rookie Class Hockey Hobby Set because it amazing rookie cards of current NHL’s like Pat Kane(Blackhawks), Tyler Kennedy(penguins), Niklas Backstrom (capitals),Jonathan Bernier(Kings),and Bryan Little (Thrashers).

  38. Terry Erskine May 13, 2009 at 12:41 pm #


    My favorite box was the 1990/91 Upper Deck Hockey. It was the first set that I started collecting since I was a kid. Way overproduced but got me excited about the hobby again.

  39. Matt Mesgleski May 13, 2009 at 4:50 pm #

    Any box from Pacific. They made some really nice looking Hockey cards. Hockey cards….baseball cards well, dont get me started

  40. Scott Hicks May 14, 2009 at 12:13 pm #

    I would have to go with 08-09 Sp Game Used. The pulls are incredible. A little on the pricey side but totally worth the investment.

  41. Travis Heath May 14, 2009 at 5:25 pm #

    08-09 SP Game Used, there were some great pulls

  42. wilfredo May 14, 2009 at 9:27 pm #

    08-09 upper deck champ and ice. it has some nice pulls and graphics

  43. Christian De Jager May 15, 2009 at 4:58 pm #

    I am usually a guy who loves memrobillia cards but that was until I opened a box of 08/09 O-Pee-Chee hockey. This is by far my favourite set because of its fun. Theres an insert in every pack!. The design of the cards is also sweet especially the retro cards! That is why 08/09 O-Pee-Chee is my favorite box!

  44. jthockey man May 15, 2009 at 7:07 pm #

    my favourite box is 08-09 black diamond hobby box because of all the hits you recive

  45. Kevin B May 17, 2009 at 2:19 am #

    I’m picking the 2002-2003 Upper Deck Set. We have a ‘shirt-tail’ cousin- Francois Beauchemin who plays for the Ducks and that’s his rookie card. He comes from Sorel and our family came from there and although my grandfather changed the spelling of our name, my boys, who play hockey still think it’s cool that they’ve got somebody in the NHL who they can consider being a relative (I think it’s pretty cool too).

  46. vince gosse May 17, 2009 at 2:31 am #

    06/07 SP Authentic Hockey, SP is always great, but this year had added value because of the insertion of the 05/06 stuff, like buying 2 boxes for the price of one.

  47. zachary Mondschein May 17, 2009 at 11:59 am #

    07-08 upper deck series one- soooooo many good players

  48. C. Wells May 17, 2009 at 2:06 pm #

    My favorite is 06/07 Flair showcase because it’s cheap and you get at least three hits one auto two jerseys

  49. Tylor May 17, 2009 at 11:34 pm #

    My favorite box was 07/08 upper Deck Series 2 only because i got a Mat Sundin printing plate

  50. BNLFans May 18, 2009 at 1:12 am #

    Heya Guys!

    My fav hockey box of all time is an oldie but a goodie, 79-80 OPC. This is for two reasons- first, obviously, because it’s Gretzky’s RC year, but secondly, because it was the first year I really began collecting hockey cards.

    I had grabbed a couple of packs of previous years, but 79-80 was the year I really dove in and tried for the set (I was a few cards short). So it remains my fav.

  51. Ian Marderness May 18, 2009 at 9:09 am #

    My favorite box would have to be 05/06 Upper Deck Ice because that year I had bought a box and so did a friend of mine. I pulled some nice stuff but my friend pulled the ovechkin rc /99! I was shocked and I’d never seen such a rare pull before. felt that the product definitely provided a lot of value in each box and each year i continue to buy a box or two of Upper Deck Ice.

  52. Sanford Ng May 19, 2009 at 1:44 am #

    My favourite box is UD ICE. I’ve had some really nice pulls out of that brand.

  53. Jesse Reyes May 19, 2009 at 10:28 am #

    Any box of Upper Deck Sweet Shot the tins are great and they usually feature hits that stand out from the crowd. Thanks!

    Last Year’s Legends Masterpieces

  55. Cory Johnson May 20, 2009 at 10:37 am #

    My new favorite box is 2008-2009 OPC lots of different
    inserts, I am trying to collect the set with my son and he just loves the retro cards and rainbow cards. Almost finished with the set.

  56. Anthony Garrett May 22, 2009 at 10:30 am #

  57. Alex V. May 22, 2009 at 4:25 pm #

    1990-91 Score

  59. Richard Kong May 24, 2009 at 11:50 am #

    My favorite box is the UD 07/08 Series one which got me back into collecting after I quit in 92-93.

  60. A Chisholm May 24, 2009 at 10:59 pm #

    Not sure of the year, but it was a box of Pinnacle “Dare to Tear”. I still havn’t torn them.

  61. DamonX May 25, 2009 at 1:22 pm #

    I did like 2007-08 UD Ice as I was trying to chase all of the rookie premieres…after a dissapointing break to 2008-09 Ice, I changed to 2008-09 Black Diamond. Had never busted BD before and I absolutely love it. The price point is great for the product and I love collecting all the different levels of diamonds.

  62. Jake Lester May 25, 2009 at 9:51 pm #

    My favorite box is 08/09 Black Diamond. It’s got a great base design and u get several hits with the quad JSY’s, the Gemography’s, the Premier Cuts and the different levels of diamonds. perfect box break

  63. tim yount May 26, 2009 at 6:46 pm #

    07/08 the cup is my favorite

  64. Dan Clark May 28, 2009 at 8:41 pm #

    2000-01 upper deck. Gaborik, Heatley, Havlat and others. Just got me back into collecting after years of being out

  65. John Hartman May 28, 2009 at 10:21 pm #

    85-86 Topps. There was nothing like pulling a Lemieux rookie card. There are sets from era with better overall rookie selection but that Lemieux rookie is a special card.

  66. Michel Rivolta May 29, 2009 at 12:01 am #

    Legends Masterpieces 2008, I love the canvas style and has a great auto selection.

  67. Tom Bilkie May 29, 2009 at 12:53 am #

    My favorite hockey box of al time is 97/98 Donruss Studio. First hockey product I ever broke, so I have a soft spot for it.

  68. Jay Ghazaleh May 29, 2009 at 11:24 am #

    My favorite Hockey set was 85-86 Topps. The Lemieux rookie brings back some great memories.

  69. Andrew Chrisman May 29, 2009 at 12:44 pm #

    79/80 O-Pee-Chee. Wayne Gretzky is my favorite hockey

  70. Jay Engels May 29, 2009 at 1:32 pm #

    07-08 ICE. Nice cards abd great inserts

  71. Garry Golden May 29, 2009 at 4:53 pm #

    Favorite box 05-06 Ultimate Hockey, Lucky enough to pull Two Crosby Rookies

  72. Max2002 May 29, 2009 at 9:49 pm #

    07-08 Upper Deck

  73. Matthew Shelest May 29, 2009 at 10:15 pm #

    My favourite Hockey Card box of all time has to be 08-09 Artifacts just cause it’s not too pricey but it’s still a very nice product!!


  74. Jed Bacay May 30, 2009 at 12:52 am #

    i will go for 08-09 UD Ice , this product have contonued its tradition with having the toughest rc /99 to pull out of each year. And with each year the product is released the product design continues to evolve and becoming a class act. for its price tag , its a product for the masses with a classy appeal of high end touch for the big hits.

  75. Kevin O May 30, 2009 at 11:28 pm #

    Unusual, but my favorite product is the 2001-2002 topps heritage hockey. Not a really high end product, but it was the first pack of hockey cards i ever remember getting. This card set introduced me to the sport of hockey, and without them i don’t think i would have ever been as big of a hockey fan as i am. Go Bruins!

  76. Gene C May 31, 2009 at 7:58 am #

    Topps 1979. Loved getting the Gretzky RC!

  77. Frank McDonald May 31, 2009 at 10:31 am #

    my favorite is the 84-85 OPC when rookie cards were important

  78. rob May 31, 2009 at 3:22 pm #

    I would say upperdeck 1990 91 hockey cards lots of rookie cards, good chance of completing a set.

  79. JS May 31, 2009 at 5:00 pm #

    96-97 SPX. The holograms were sort of a new take.

  80. David Greenstein May 31, 2009 at 11:13 pm #

    08-09 SP Authentic, I love the Auto Future Watch inserts.

  81. Mark Bona June 1, 2009 at 12:50 am #

    I have always liked the UD ice or UD SP

  82. Rich S. June 1, 2009 at 2:21 am #

    my favorite box of hockey cards is 2005-2006 spx. the rookies in it are great and the cards have alot of value.

  83. mike nowak June 1, 2009 at 2:07 pm #

    my favorite hockey card box would have to be 1971-1972 o-pee-chee reason y is thats when i first got into collecting with my grand dad and he told me the ins and outs of collecting and the fundenmentals of hockey and ever since then i became a player a collector and a teacher to my youngest son..who he and i never miss a game either on tv or in the streets in a street game thats the greatest sport of all canadian tim thanx

  84. Tatu Virtanen June 6, 2009 at 10:22 am #

    My favourite hockeycard box is 08/09 Black Diamond ! I like cards what I get from that box, Crosby’s patch 03/10 and others. 🙂 Cards are very nicely BUT I get Valtteri Filppula’s card and there were goalie stats ? :O

    That video what I saw was very nice and there were nice cards and I just love them, but have a nice summer and find new cards !

    P.S I watch this video from youtube earlier today. 🙂

  85. Austin Guise June 24, 2009 at 2:18 pm #

    My favorite Box of all time would have to most definately Black Diamond. I love the base cards looks! I try to buy atleast 1 box every year!!


  86. Chris L July 15, 2009 at 1:06 pm #

    Any Black Diamond is good with me…we’ll say 08-09 since I pulled a Mason and a Ruby Mason in the same box!

  87. TMax Testa August 15, 2009 at 10:10 am #

    I like the cup a lot because it mixes new a old and some sick patches and autos

  88. Max Testa August 15, 2009 at 10:23 am #

  90. josh January 20, 2010 at 3:03 am #

    My favorite product is 1999/2000 Upper Deck Powerdeck. I’ve never opened a whole box of it, but I went to a card shop in a city I was visiting on vacation and pulled a 500 Goal Club Dino Ciccarelli insert signed and numbered out of 25 out of the only pack I bought. It was one of my most prized possessions when I was younger and I recently just sold it to fund my collecting hockey cards again.

  91. brad January 20, 2010 at 6:11 pm #
