When does it come out? I would like to pick one or two up.
EDIT: I see it is on Blowoutcards for pre-sell October 28.

I absolutely hate one pack products that yield 1 or 2 hits. Yes, there will be plenty of boxes where you get a hit that more than pays for your box, but there will be twice as many where you won't get close. I suppose with a few more specifics I might change my mind though...

Nice! Initially Panini had said that they were doing away with Leaf Limited. It's great to hear this as I am a fan and my collection consists mostly of this stuff. I love the look and the fact that the cards are low numbered. I hate the stickers though, but I'll remain loyal. Anyone have a sneak peak at how it'll look?

man you can't understand how happy this makes me i loved the 07 product and when they went to the different format in 08 i think the whole product just changed. I will be picking up some of it for sure.

I have to admit that looks cool. Wonder how that works with teams with longer nicknames though...

I think I like the 08 version than 07 or 09. I just like a lot of packs cause then u dont just open the one pack and be done in 1 minute. Makes it more enjoyable.

Plus you feel much worse when you open a $100 pack to find a dud hit...at least with a box you have 18-24 packs to go through...

A while back when Panini had first taken over, someone in Texas (I think) had a meet and greet at a shop with some of the new higher ups with the company. A few of us asked whoever it was to ask questions to the reps on our behalf. One of them was if Limited was going back to the 1 pack format and they said yes. That just about made my year. 08 was a far cry from what they product was intended to be...and that is "limited". What they did last year was replicate Leaf Certified, but with more packs and tons of filler, which sucked IMO. This is one of the products that I have been anticipating for a while now and it looks as good as I had hoped. Glad they came to their senses and reverted to what the product should be like.

If thats the case...don't buy mid-high to high end products. Thats why they make base Topps and UD products

So, product wise, which would be the best bet. 09 LL, 09 ud black, or maybe ud corrects last years problemls and wait and pre order 09 sp authentic? I could have around 400-450 paypal by then. Possibly to rip and flip and a few pc cards

I like the look of LL and ud rookie threads is cheaper as well. If I sold my slaton exquisite lol I could get one moee box of each. That could be a dumb idea though lol. If i did that I could get 09 TC and another box of something? Would any of you do something like that. Sell a nice high end of a good Rb in order to buy 2-3 boxes?

Its a mid end product. Higher end of the mid range products, but still mid level. 07 LL may have been my favorite product of any to bust, especially when it dipped to the $75 range. I made quite a bit of money on it after 08 came out.

I'm not thrilled with SP RC Threads being changed either. It wasn't one of the better mid to high end products IMO. I don't see how it will be successful being bumped to a 16 pack product. From the looks of the box breakdown, it appears to be the same thing as Donruss Threads

Totally agree with this! Plus, I thought 07 was better looking.
