Default 15-16 Upper Deck Full Force 16 box Master Case- Hunting for McDavid

I actually grabbed this case from a BO competitor last week. The case was $395. Yes, approximately $25 per box.

It came with "double free gifts" which are usually trash but I figured I would try my hand at the Fat Packs of 13-14 UD Series 2 to see if I could hit a YG.

The first pack I actually hit a very clean Pastrnak YG. More than likely heading to BGS.

Mostly junk aside from this bus I also hit a YG of Adam Clendening and two OPC Marquee Rookies of Curtis McKenzie. Yes, two of the same guy.

In any event, I will be breaking the Full Force as time allows over the next few nights.

Box 4:

Blueprint: Eichel, Huberdeau. Johansen, Tarasenko, Gaudreau, Malkin

Immediate Impact- Ryan Hartman

Thermal Threats- James Van Riemsdyk

I got a lot of nice stuff from different sets here but, damn, all the wrong people. Terevainen, Subban, Cousins, Barrie....all guys that just are not collected at all.

I am into this break at a little less than $25 per box so I really can't complain too much. Add to that the "gift" I received (the fat packs) and consider that I landed a Pastrnak and there is a decent amount of value.

I completed the Blueprint set in the first mini case. The value is decent for this product IF you are going to sell everything. I won't be...and so far I have nothing truly decent to show for my $400 bucks.

I have another half case to open tomorrow and Saturday. Hopefully, McDavid makes a few more appearance.

I have three so far.

Thermal Threats, Draft Board and Valuable assets. None are the nicer ones to hit though. I am hoping to hit the Full Force Freshman (card 101) or the Rising Force. Those are the nicer looking ones and are somewhat within reach if doing an entire case.

Longer odds are the McDavid autos. Any of them would be nice but I am not holding my breath.

In any event, I do agree. This hasn't been a great case. Nice cards, wrong guys on them.

Just curious you seem to like to buy the 'close out' cases that are on the low end, why not roll the dice and invest your $300-$400 in perhaps 2-3 boxes of a higher end product where the return both for the PC as well as potential ROI are much higher?

Best ROI are on these closeouts. I do the same thing.

Yes the highend can see massive hits but more than likely the loss is much greater.

I just saw that it has Auto's what are the odds etc, and I do understand that their are a few McDavid's in the product just not sure how many collectors are actually buying Full Force for their PC.

I don't agree with the ROI, even at $25.00 a box I see perhaps ($10-$12 at best per box) for what was posted, again let's face it, it's cheap for a reason.

Still if you enjoy it that's really all that matters, just curious outside of the price if folks are actually collecting it.

Well I can't judge for this product itself, I am just subscribed because I love it and it is a fun break. But for $25, I feel like you can't go wrong.

But I personally have done much better with close out cases compared to some higher-end boxes. Heck, I haven't got half my money back on a box worth more than $100 in about 12 boxes.

I can answer this as succinctly and honesty as possible.

I like the actual opening of packs. Higher end products are typically one pack and it's over. Cards are a stress reliever for me. While I would like to hit something of value, my fun is physically opening packs.

If I just wanted value or PC, I would just buy singles. Also, my wife enjoys ripping packs like I do.

That's cool I must clarify my high end comment, I'm referring to Artifacts, Platinum, SP Authentic where you have 12 - 16 packs and as a set builder I like there look etc,. and you have some decent auto's and relics.

I too stay away from the 1 pack products, not in the budget nor am I that kind of gambler, LOL

Ah! I broke one box of artifacts that I got at the Shriners show in Wilmington mass last year. I hit a fight strap card with six Avs on it. It was /3.

I have not opened any more artifacts since then. No good reason why I haven't. I love the ten pack format. I like the idea.

SPA kills me whenever I break it. It just kills me.

I'll second that!

SPA has been very rough for me since 05-06 when I pulled an Ovie rookie.

Done very well with Artifacts and you can pick up 14-15 or 15-16 for a decent price now that this years product is out. and you have enough packs to break with the wife!!

Well it's Bruins and Celtics time, enjoy!

I have six boxes left. I really kind of hate to think that I already have the best card from this case. I wouldn't even be certain what that "best" card would be. The Larkin die cut? If so, this is a terrible case.
