Default Opinions on 2008 Leaf Limited?

Hey guys, what are your opinions on that product? I am looking to buy an 8 or 4 box case.

It does seem to be 'watered down' as mentioned above. Listen, I've broken boxes of this stuff every year since 2005. Every year EXCEPT 2008, I have hit a 1/1 from this product in less than 4 to 6 boxes. I'm up to about 8 boxes of '08 and the lowest serial numbered auto/jsy I have hit is a 1/5 Laurence Maroney. Ugh. It's killin' my streak...

I'll keep trying though, picking up one or two every once in a while. For the price, though, I think it's a pretty good deal with the rookie class and the chance at HOFer autos.

I've seen a lot of rough breaks with the stuff....which you can say with a lot of products. Lots of single-colored jerseys...yes, you can hit a cut or one of the better rookies, but the product's "hits" overall seem to be of lesser quality than the ones in the "one-pack" format. Who needs all that base? It's like certified, but with even more packs and less nice stuff .

fun product. the problem i had with limited was that the patch window being so small for the RCs, and the sticker autos were always like over the players picture haha awkward. but other than that, 2008 def better than 2010 and IMO 2009

What were some of your guy's hits? I am thinking of buying a 4 box half case, but I am just kinda worried.

Never busted any of it but from what I've seen, I'd take a shot at it seeing how good that rookie class has done!

Just saw..and one word: WOW!...The thing is you have much more luck then me. I'll bust even 4 boxes, and either get tons of expired redemp. or I will get the worst rookie autos possible
