My problem was that they sent out a mass email that promoted this as being an epic promo. Does a case of 2012 Score Football blasters sound epic to you? It doesn't to me AND I'M ONE OF THE BIGGEST SUPPORTERS OF SCORE AROUND HERE! I'm not exactly a highly paid person, so I stick to the lower/middle end of things. For me, buying Crown Royale is the highest end I can go on cards so Score is right in my budget. I buy 2 or 3 hobby boxes and about 5-10 blasters of Score each year. Now that they don't number the insert cards, I'm stuck with so many Scorecard, Gold Zone, and Red Zone insert cards that I can't even move at $1 per card. The resell value of Score is gone now.
You're buying them at 10 bucks each for the chance to win up to 9000 bucks.

Kudos to blowout for continually running these pools and promos.
Yeah, but I bought a box of score from 2011 and I didn't get anything except regular base cards and a few rookies. I think if they did like topps blasters or something else, people would enjoy it and maybe get a decent hit.

So vinbots and wcbraun. If it's such a wonderful value, how come you two have defended it but still not bought into it? Don't see your names on the list of buyers.

Don't understand how people can defend the item your buying (which is RETAIL blasters) but then won't back it up themselves by buying into the promo. If it was $200 but something decent or at the very least HOBBY product, I'd at least have considered it, but to call a case of RETAIL Blasters EPIC, sorry, it's not. As I've said before, I'm a HUGE supporter of Score. I bought a Retail Gravity Feed box of 2011 Score during the Cyber Tuesday event to try to fill my set out. I received: 1 SP Rookie(Ponder), 8 unnumbered Scorecards, 8 unnumbered Gold Zones, 4 unnumbered Red Zones, 2 unnumbered End Zones, and 1 unnumbered Artist Proof. Due to them being unnumbered from 2011 and on, the inserts just don't sell. This is what a full Gravity Feed box of 72 packs gives on average. No autos and no relics. Blasters average 1 or 2 inserts per blaster, so you'll end up with MAYBE double the inserts I pulled and I think they only numbered the End Zone and Artist Proof in 2012. You also have a chance at a printing plate, but I've never heard of one being pulled in a Blaster.

As stated above, even if it was Topps or Topps Chrome blasters from a few years ago, I'd most likely have bought into the promo. Score has no resell value except in team sets, and even that's hard to do.

I'm sure like last year, Blowout will add more promos or change what is listed in this promo. That still won't change what this is, you're buying into a SuperBowl pool for 200 bucks for the four prizes and being given a case of score for participating. Except its sold to us the other way, buy a case of score and get a SuperBowl box. And to answer the question The only reason I haven't bought in yet is because I have almost a month before the SuperBowl and I'll wait for other possible boxes/cases to purchase, as should everyone else who doesn't prefer Score Football blasters.

I don't believe either vinbots or myself said it was a wonderful value. We were both just pointing out the contest for what it was.

As for myself, I don't collect low-end stuff and rarely sell anymore so I don't need 20 boxes of score retail sitting around the house, just like I don't need 20 boxes of Topps blasters sitting around the house.

I ripped 2 of these blasters. Might have been the worst 10 minutes of my life. No RG3, No Luck, No Foles, No Wilson to speak of in 22 packs. Definitely no hits. Did get a Pierre Thomas Gold Zone and a Brees insert so the Saints collection did gain some, not a total fail. Guess it makes the odds better for the rest of you?

I'll pass. Disappointed the Super Bowl team pool like last year isn't back. Last year, I got the Ravens and won 12 different boxes for the buy-in of a case of rated rookies that I have lying in a corner somewhere sans the autos. I just don't see the allure in squares. I'd rather root for a team or player than a random number..good luck to those who want in

Definitely Disappointing, but hopefully they can adjust it a little because I would love to get in on the Super Bowl boxes! It will be a good value for a few people at least ($9000)!!!

With only 4%, at most, of all entries getting a prize I can't justify buying a product I have zero interest in for $200... If they opened it up to more options like in previous years, then I might jump onboard.

It seems like some are better deals than others, especially all the products from 2007. You're paying more per box for everything else that's not 2007. Shouldn't they all be lower than current box prices, or at least the same?

2014 Super Bowl Promo - 2012 Panini Momentum Football Hobby 3 Box Lot - $494.48 (paying $46.04 more - $149.48 x 3 = $448.44)

2014 Super Bowl Promo - 2010 Topps Triple Threads Football Hobby 5 Box Lot - $499.48 (paying $2.08 more - $99.48 x 5 = $497.40)

2014 Super Bowl Promo - 2007 Donruss Elite Football Hobby 8 Box Lot - $494.48 (saving $21.36 - $64.48 x 8 = $515.84)

2014 Super Bowl Promo - 2008 Topps Chrome Football Hobby 6 Box Lot - $359.48 (paying $32.60 more - $54.48 x 6 = $326.88)

2014 Super Bowl Promo - 2007 Playoff Contenders Football Hobby 8 Box Lot - $594.48 (saving $41.36 - $79.48 x 8 = $635.84)

2014 Super Bowl Promo - 2007 Topps Triple Threads Football Hobby 5 Box Lot - $614.48 (saving $7.92 - $124.48 x 5 = $622.40)

2014 Super Bowl Promo - 2012 Score Football Blaster 20 Box Case - $199.48 (paying current price)

Interesting... thanks for doing this. Looks like 07 Contenders would be the way to go if I want in on this promo.

How could Blowout possibly give away $9000 if they sold the boxes for the same or lower? Do you expect them to lose money on promo's? They are a business, not a charity. So besides making the normal money they would make, they have to raise prices a little in order to give away $9000 in gift certificates.

I don't understand how people don't get this.

It looks like they are trying to dump a bunch of over stock Panini dumped real cheap. I know they were dumping off a lot of 2011 product to wholesalers, but you had to take all of the product. It's a good way to get rid of it quick. Looks like it back fired. So guess what everyone gets in the Birthday contest for the next few years?

which of these has the least amount of redemtions?
07 contenders
08 topps chrome

I am assuming that these would have expired as well? been out of cards for 3 plus years.
thanks,
larry

Personally I'd do the 07 Contenders. Panini will honor all the redemptions in these products... I'm not sure if Topps will, but I doubt it. Lots of people bag on Panini, but they rock for opening older product with redemptions.
