with the NHL lockout i'm curious as to opening a box of European Elite league cards. My 3 options are

KHL - numerous NHL players are in the set
DEL - Matt Dzieduszycki (PC player) is in this product but only 1 card
Swiss National League - numerous NHL players are in this set and John Tavares (PC player) has multipe cards in it.


Out of these 3, which do you think will be the most fun and have the best return in terms of trade for me?
 
Hello there,

I think you'll find that, looking at how much fun each of those boxes are, the KHL one is your safest bet for a break that will be both entertaining and unique. The DEL and Swiss cards are pretty much alike; the base cards are similar and the inserts look a lot like each other. I'd go for the Swiss cards before the German ones because of the fact that there's a lot of NHL'ers playing there now, but especially because you might pull your PC guy, Tavares.

All in all, try KHL first and see what happens. In my opinion that's the box you'll enjoy the most out of the three, especially because you're mainly an NHL collector and would be able to recognize most of the names in there.

Have fun! :winke:

Also, after you've tried a few boxes (and enjoyed them) I'd say that you should also take a look at some SM-liiga (Cardset) cards and Elitserien ones.
You can hit some nice cards in each of those sets, and they'll most likely make for a very fun break if you haven't tried them before.

Here's some info on them:

Swedish Elitserien: http://www.thecardcabinet.com/

Sincerely,

Thanks for the help. I have a pc player in the DEL cards as well which is why I wanted to break them. My main project with his cards is the pressplates though. I have 20 of them and located 2 more plus 2 copies of his one card in the 12-13 product. I wound up deciding on a box of KHL, box of Swiss League A and some packs of DEL.

You're welcome. Feel free to post your breaks here on Das Cardboard or on SCF. :winke:

Happy Holidays.

I wound up going with:
1 Box of KHL
5 packs of DEL (just buying the plates/cards I need on ebay)
10 packs of SHL


don't worry, i'll post the breaks on both sites but i'm most likely going to PC everything and possibly do the KHL set.

Hej Scott,

I´m pleased to see you here :clap:
We did a trade for Dzieduszycki (+DerekKing) in August at SCF; remember?

Have fun :winke:
