Mine assortment was similar to the lot already mentioned...didn't hit anything huge but did pull 2 jerseys and a piece of football so not bad for retail. Definitely will get my money back and had a fun time breaking so that is all that matters. Good luck to everyone involved.

Default Report Card - 200 Football Packs

200 packs for $200 is a good deal no matter how you look at it, however, if you're like most collectors you want autographs, low-numbered rookies and low-numbered memorabia cards. This package was somewhat skimpy in that regard. There were no autographs in the 200 packs...amazing! There were no low-numbered rookies. Okay, a couple numbered to 250 but they were no-name players. Just bad luck I suppose. In the 200 packs there were only 5 memorabilia cards (one in 40 packs); a poor ratio. 3 of them were rookie inserts however, which was pretty okay. The best one was a Trent Edwards rookie jersey insert numbered to 100 (Playoff Absolute). Also, a Vince Young rookie game used football insert numbered to 175 (Rookies & Stars). And, a Brandon Marshall rookie jersey insert but not numbered (Playoff Absolute).

It was a fun rip but I'd have to say overall fairly disappointing. Maybe my expectations were too high, but - no autographs? Yes, there were tons of Score rookies and other rookies, but not one really good hit. That's what we all want, right - that big hit?

Yeah I believe that this is a fantastic deal. As a collector it is not always about AUTO's and Jerseys. It is about the RC's and the AUTO in like every 10 boxes. I will say this. With all these retail boxes I bet that at least one person will have an AUTO!

Good luck to everyone with their packs. I am hoping for no autographs no redemptions and then hit the Final score in the pool

Poonchka...I purchased last Thurs and it didnt even ship till Tues so I dont think it would of helped. I've got one coming today so it will be interesting to see. I know the one that shipped yesterday (i gambled and took a 2nd slot in the first promo as I didnt think they'd do a 2nd one), will be here tomorrow. Should be a fun weekend!

Alright...so out of my 200 packs, I ended up with roughly the following

a crapload of no name rookies
2 AP RCs (both Score)
a ton of crappy inserts
a ton of good inserts
4 sweet Game Used - including one dual GU, one Santana Moss Used Football card (07 threads), and two RC GUs
1 RC AUTO (Fairooz - from 07 classics)
a ton of 07 classics error cards
a nice Reggie Bush College Gridiron king RC

overall...not too bad...but no way am I going to be able to sell any of this and come close to what I spent....

a lot of the packs/cards were damaged, but at least I didn't have any that appeared to have been opened previously

overall - I would say that I easily got about $300-400 BV out of the break, but I wouldn't be able to GIVE most of it away

would I do it again? hell yeah - busting anything at a buck-a-pack is fun!

I can't believe all the stuff that people are pulling. I didn't get any jerseys or autos. My best pull was an Adrian Peterson prestige RC. Overall it was fun to break all the packs. If someone had offered me a spot in this pool for $50, I would have paid it. Good luck to all.
