Default Leaf Limited

I was thinking about a box. Leaf limited is at a good price with the specials. Is limited a good buy? Ive seen some good boxes and some really bad. I'm not sure if I should go ahead and get this or look at another product near the $80 price range? What do you guys think?

2 boxes of 08 Topps Chrome or 07 Bowman Chrome is solid breaks. I'm staying away from LL this year myself. Are you looking to rip and flip or keep?

If you want this years rookies you can get several boxes around the $80 mark. I haven't opened much of this years football but have managed some Topps Chrome which is good but you just get the one auto. I loved Playoff Prestige but the price is high now. I really liked Topps Finest personally I thought it was a good break and in the group break on here I pulled a 1/1 auto! The only real downer is on some of the autos they didn't serial # them but you can look up print runs on them or send them in to get stamped I believe. I just kept mine. Otherwise you can go back to last year and get Absolute Memorabilia which has a good sale price this weekend. I like all years of Leaf Certified materials too! Since your keeping it sounds like you should just go through and look at what contents each box has and get what you think looks fun. I like getting boxes with more than one auto and some game-used along with refractors and numbered inserts. Let us know what you decide!

I don't think they even stamp them, they're hand written onto the card.

Finest is hand numbered....and to be honest the print run on most is pretty high..but not sure if the free pack offer is still available

LL is a pretty decent PC product, 07 and 06 were better for that IMHO as you eliminated about 99% of the base cards. But its got a solid checklist (relics) and some really nice auto's. Debating about picking some up (with the hopes of also hitting the SB Promo)..but conflicted between that and Masterpieces.

Leaf Limited treated me alright this year, I was on the site and was thinking about getting a couple boxes of 2007 Topps Performance Football $49.00 box. 1 auto relic and 2 additional autos per 1 pack box. Pulled a Peterson Auto RC about 2 months ago. There is a ton of product you can choose from though. Good luck.

I thought about picking up a box as well, but I just went ahead and picked this up for basically a price of a box tonight!

sweet card and wise move my friend. For cards I want for my PC, sometimes I'll just outright buy them instead, but I still like busting boxes for the fun of it too.
