2005-06 Fleer Hot Prospects Hobby Box - 87 and 8 Hunt

Post by Fultoncards » Wed May 15, 2019 8:30 am

Not often I break a box from 2005-06. It’s really one of the greatest treats in the hobby. It’s not just because we can hunt for Crosby and OV. The draft class is just caked, akin to the 1979-80 OPC Gretzky class, or the 1951-52 Parkhurst Howe/Richard class.

This product is a bit dangerous, in the sense that there are some 176 rookies. And the Crosby is a short print #/199. So it is a fraction of a percent to hit him, or Lundqvist for that matter. I watched some box breaks on YouTube, and there aren’t many. It’s very easy to come up with air, or a no-name auto, given the paltry auto RC checklist.

Still, for under $100, go for it.

Look for:
-1 Rookie Auto (many unknowns) or Rookie Patch Auto (great names, but the SPs are tough hits)
-2 Game-Used Memorabilia Cards
-4 Base Rookie Cards per box on average (many unknowns)
-176 RCs in tiered checklist

-Base Set: 1-100
-Hot Prospects RCs: 101-186 - #/1999
//s: Red Hot #/100; White Hot #/10; En Fuego 1/1
-Prized Prospects Autos: 187-216 - #/999
//s:: Patch #/5; Gold Patch 1/1
-Auto-Patch: 217-276 - #/349 or #/199 (SP)
//s: Red Hot #/50; White Hot #/5; En Fuego 1/1
