At eight packs per box and boxes in the $90-100 price point range, you're looking at more than $10 a pack. Each box delivers three autographed, memorabilia or Aurum cards and also four serial numbered cards.
On my personal blog in December, I posted that I was over the "card lottery." Artifacts was the product that finally pushed me to the brink. You can take a look at what came in my pack by clicking the link. How would this 2017-18 pack compare? You decide.

The 2017-18 release features a design that I consider very Artifacts. It's a similar design season to season. Many collectors like the product, so why drastically change what works?
One of the early season releases, some players will be pictured and listed with teams they no longer play for. Such is the case with this Brandon Saad. He was traded back to the Blackhawks in one of the biggest offseason trades.
