As much as I didn't want to spend 300 plus I went with the RR simply because I'm guarenteed 20 rookie auto's and possibly a Bradford or Tebow auto that would cover 1/2 the purchase. I know it's wishfull thinking but they have to be in there somewhere so why not my case lol. Couldn't justify 200 for the UD series 1 with almost 0% chance of pulling a card over $5.00 but I see the logic in having more chances at that $5000 gift card.

A Posey RC out of that product is more than a $5 card .

A 1/100 shot at $5K should be a $50 buy-in value...figure the other prizes and it's more like $75 in lotto tickets...hardly enough justification to go in on a product you will almost certainly be behind on by more than that.

If you want a "cheaper" buy-in, I guess RR is the way to go, but I still feel the best bang-for-buck product on the list is Sports Legends, albeit at a higher price point. Just my $0.02.

I think Rated Rookie is the way to go. Check ebay. Even some lesser known players are getting $10-$20. With the SP list coming out the other day, it just makes it that much more appealing. 20 guaranteed autos? I did something similar at the beginning of the football season to get into the survivor league. Bought Press Pass. I got 2 Arian Fosters, 1 Michael Crabtree and a bunch of other mid to mid high rookies (mostly defensive). I'm fine with $350 for 20 Autos out of RR. Even if they end up as bums.

Picking up steam now...might have to pick up a few more slots

I just purchased 5 cases of Donruss Rated Rookies - so 5 slots for me - might still pickup a few more before end of day! Not 100% sure yet but might break all 5 cases for the 100 autos and break up the 100 rookies into lots of 100 RC's - so let me know if looking for any certain players or team lots from the Donruss Rated Rookies product

So 65 slots are sold and I would assume another 10-15 sold today and not updated yet.

That should be 80 or so/

In on UD MVP basketball what a tough trigger to pull - I've never spent that much on cards b4 but I can think of plenty of ways to spend 5K!

If you cant afford a whole slot (like me lol) and are interested in splitting a Donruss RR promo 4 ways please post. We will each get 5 boxes and 25% of promo slot. Price will be $90, (330/4= 82.50 + 7.50 to ship 5 boxes). Shipping will probably cost me more but thats ok, I want a slot and a chance at the 5K. Great shot at some rookie autos to. Immediate payment required to get it ordered and on the grid.

1)nick9819 (paid)
2)mikeman7322 (paid)
3)The700Level (paid)

Thanks everyone including the reserve list. We are full and paid and case is ordered. Let the Grid God smile upon us!!!!!

Mods, was not sure if I should post here or break thread. Not really a break so I thought this was ok. Please move if not and thanks.

i agree we were close before promo 4 closed with 20/32 i think

or sportslegnds and sell them unopened

You might get back more but I bet it works out about the same per slot....you get back more but you also spent more for that slot. Also with only spending $200 per I was able to get 3 slots. (Unfortunately its still a long shot to win the $5000 especially if you don't get decent numbers). Crossing my fingers...........good luck to everyone!
