Default Box of 09/10 The Cup: Speechless

I finally finished opening my one tin of 2009-2010 UD the Cup (I look at 1 card or hit per day).

I know it was a gamble, but I am really disapointed in UD. I know they hand back every box, so they must have seen what they were putting in there. Now, I can't complain about low value of a box, that happens. That is the risk you undertake when you purchase wax. I was speechless and upset at the patches I got, and you will see why:
My absolute fave. part of The Cup is the nasty patches that you can pull, so take a look at this stinker:

Jari Kuri /249 8 dlvd

Auto rc patch /249:
Matt Pelech 1 Color patch auto, oooh, a minor league rookie defenseman, fun! 14 dlvd

Auto rc:

Taylor Chorney auto rookie /199 yay, another minor league rookie defensemen 10 dlvd

jersey gold /25

Rick Nash black 20 dlvd

2 "bigger" hits:

Enshrinements auto /50
Henrik Lundqvist auto /50(one of my favorite players, prolly holding onto this one).

Limited Logo patch auto
Martin Brodeur limited logo patch auto /50 ONE COLOR
If this was a nasty logo patch like it was supposed to be, I would be satisfied with this box, but YUCKKK! 70$ dlvd

Anyways, I still love the design and cards from UD, but just for future customer satisfaction, try to put at least one multicolor per tin in the cup. This was just very frustrating.

The one color patch is a bit of a let down, but that Brodeur is niiiice! I'd be content with that box.

Sucks that you got a bunch of single color patches, but look at the bright side - nobody will accuse you of patch faking!

With the Lundqvist Auto (low #50) and the Brodeur Patch Auto (also low #50), I think you can be happy with that break considering some of the other breaks I have seen. It sucks getting a 1 Color patch Auto but let's face it, it could have been a journey man Auto, you got Brodeur!
