i guess a better question should be, can we still buy the other available promo items (SPX, Limited and so on) and be entered into this one since the first two are full

Just as a side note though guys, keep in mind this one has such a big first prize that the prizes are really "the basis of the bargain" for any purchase. Obviously, nobody would be buying up the retail stuff without the prizes being listed. It's just the sacrifice which must be made. Trust me, I'd much rather have bought some hobby hockey for my lot entry.

Also, since this one is retail, it practically precludes you from the Best Pull contest. If stuff is added on at the end, they should take that into consideration for anyone who purchased the retail end upfront for this grid.

Now we're talking Chris

I have a feeling BO is going to be shipping out a lot of 2008 Americana Sports Legends in the next week

Lets get this BIG one filled!

What happens if this one doesn't fill? doesn't look too promising right now. I'd consider buying some of this junk just for the prizes but would hate to open the stuff, get nothing and then the boxes don't fill and I get burned twice.

also wanted to know what the "blister" packs or boxes consist of. I'd consider the 08 Sp Authentic even though I already got burned on my redemption Flacco auto Jersey just for the prizes. Could probably buy a few promos and sell on ebay for 1/2 to 3/4 so it would be like paying cash for the boxes just like normal super bowl boxes. Would any of this sell if you dropped the price to 3/4?

We have yet to have a promotion that has not sold out by the deadline. We'll cross that bridge if if get to it but I'm sure we will be able to get enough interest as the date comes near.

Are the items available all for one slot?

Other items are more expensive than the others and I think its for multiple slots right?

each item purchased = 1 slot. Some are more expensive than others because the product being offered is more expensive, simple as that.

I think someone posted their break of 08 Authentic blisters and it wasn't pretty. I'm having the same dillema, I want in on the promo but I have a hard time spending 2-3 hundred dollars on something I won't be happy with and not have a chance of pulling any nice auto's. At least the other promo's got me some real nice cards. 5,000 is very tempting though and eventually I'll probably break down and get one of the cheaper promo's. Gotta be in it to win it.

IMO, if you're not happy w/the product, don't buy it. I personally love busting 08 Donruss Sports Legends, so buying a case of that for a nice price and getting entered in the sweepstakes is just a bonus.

Anyone want to go dutch on the winnings?..$50 gift card for everyone and group break the other winnings FTW! J/K

Thanks, this seems like the way to go as far as getting your money's worth. I just started collecting again so I had no idea of what this product had. Looks like at least 1 auto per box which is much better than the other promo's. I think I'll grab one of these promo's next week.

I bought a case of this product before...pulled Autos of Kevin McHale, Buster Posey, Kaline, Jennie Finch, and Dan Fouts. Jersey cards of Bo Jackson, Joe Montana, Willie Mays, and Pete Rose. Mix that in with some really oddball stuff (Jockeys, Fisherman, Bowlers, etc.) and it makes for a fun and interesting break!

100% agree with Chaddie on this. I bought in one year with retail and regretted it. I was lucky this year that BO had products available for the SB Promos that I collect (2008 football, and 2008 EEE baseball)

Purchasing a slot in promo #3 is like buying an expensive lottery ticket or a regular super bowl square. Your taking a gamble at the prize. One slot equals a 1 in 100 chance of winning 5000 dollars. Better odds than any lottery I know of. Had you won one of the prizes I'm sure you wouldn't have regretted your retail purchase. I'm sure there will be 96 people that regret their purchase in promo #3 and 4 people that are thankfull they did make a purchase. I purchased quite a few slots in promo 2 and 1 slot in promo 4. I'd like to see some numbers soon to see if I have a decent shot or not and this will determine how many slot I buy in this promo. I'm curious how long is the 5000 gift card good for? Is it a use it once thing or can you spend it over a year or two as products come out that you want. Like I said before I just started collecting again and the last few weeks I've done really well with my hobby boxes and I'm getting addicted to buying them. Luckily I only collect Football and Baseball cause I'd be broke if I was buying Hockey and Basketball as well. It's cool that Blowout cards does these promotions, definately an incentive to buy from them. After the super bowl I will probably take a small break from buying cards to replenish my funds and to concentrate on my other expensive hobby, my 98 Mustang Cobra.

I bought a 20 blaster case of the 2010 UD baseball for $120 with their Christmas special...even for $6 a blaster, it was brutal. I had multiples (as many as 4) of most of the hits and there were 0 hits which I would consider "listed stars". I was left with 20 scrub 1-color jersey cards...a handful of golds /99, a few Posey RCs and a 1600 ct. box full of base cards and low-end inserts. Maybe there's a better product in the list?

I was the one who posted the break of the 2008 SP Football. First off, it is NOT SP Authentic, something I didnt realize, since it is advertised as such. It is just SP - there are no GU jersey cards in it. The autographs were terrible - doubles of a couple of no names. The only thing that might be worth anything is a Greg Jennings autograph card that lists him as a RB on the front and a WR on the back.
