Default Most amazing day at the national please read

Today, my wife and her sister went to the national in Chicago what a blast!. We peddled around and bought a few things from blowout, a box of classics to be specific. We wander over to the donruss booth to open the box and trade our pack wrappers in for there free pack exchange with the chance of an auto 1:50 packs. WE opened the box and hit a Felix jones auto rc #ed 125! sweet paid for the box. We started to open the free pack and low and behold a brian brohm elite auto #ed 10! I got to thinking these demo packs are great, they sell really well on ebay and there loaded. So against what my stomach was telling me I wandered over and bought a case of classics. For every 4 packs you get one free pack from donruss. Needless to say 64 free packs later from donruss heres what I ended up with from them out of those packs.
Darren mcfadden #ed 10 elite auto!!!!!
brian brohm #ed 10 elite auto
randy the natural couture auto #ed 2/5!!
randy the natural couture auto #ed 5/5!
donnie avery elite auto #ed 10
malcom kelly elite auto #ed 10

And I still have half a case to open, the first box we opened in front of everyone had two cut autos one of weeb ewbank #ed 50, and tom fears #ed 15!!!! Will post scans as soon as I get back to cleveland! Just wanted to let out a little excitment! Im to excited to type correctly and this probably made no sense but donruss just earned a customer for life!

Good for you Matt.

However, is it just me or does anyone else feel like a total chump when you open a box/case because:

1. The best of hits are in "special" boxes given to Beckett to open.

2. Through promotional giveaways that only a small fraction of the hobby public have access to.

If a card isn't available at the time of packaging, used the "R" word....redemption card, and allow my $ an equal shot at a card of a lifetime.

Not to rain on your parade, it is good business sense to take advantage of their ofers, but it is times like these that I ask myself, why bust another pack?
