2010-11 Score Hockey

I'm not sure if there are other reviews out there or not.

SRP: $0.99
550 Total Cards (500 Base and 50 Rookies)

Plus, look for on-card Buyback Autographs from the groundbreaking 1990-91 Score set, including signature-enhanced Rookie Cards of  Eric Lindros, Martin Brodeur and many, many more surprises!

Box Break
36 Glossy parallels
12 Superstar inserts, including The Franchise, Net Cam, Snow Globe Die-Cuts, Sudden Death and many more!
1 Rookie Redemption (10 total Players)
18 Rookie Cards per box, featuring holdover freshmen from 2009-10 such as Nazem Kadri, P.K. Subban, Brandon Yip and Zach Hamill

Here's the thing.  I think this is the only hockey set that needs to be produced this year.  It feature autos, albeit 1 per case hopefully on card but this set comes with a strong auto checklist.  No they aren't one per box, but they are hard enough to pull that they should hold value and the product is cheap enough to actually bust multiple cases. No need for worthless single color jerseys that add much more cost to the set than value to the buyer. One suggestion would be a patch/auto set, 10 cards, 1 in 5 cases.  Might add too much cost to keep the .99 price point. Also there is a redemption program which is nice because that guarantees hot rookies.   Maybe 1 in 100 redemptions could be auto or patch/auto.  What more do you need in a set?

Exactly this should be the only set produced. It is nicely designed, affordable, throwback unique and collectable -

For the last 10-15 years I can not tell you what one hockey set looks like but I will remember this one.

Yeah - but here's the issue - normally these sets from early in the year have last year's rookies in them... 10 redemptions are nice, but the other 50 will be less than worthless.

Hopefully they'll make up for it with deeper team checklists...
