Default 09 Donruss Limited!!!

I looked through quite a few pages in this forum and didn't see it.

So I have to ask.

Anyone else happy they went back to 1 pack per box rather than have massive amounts of base per box?


My only gripe is that it's only 2 hits per pack rather than it was in 07 with 3 but that's pretty minor!

Yes. I think they got a ton of flack for it last year. Looking at Absolute makes me think Limited could be really nice as well!

Hush the talk on Limited for now. Let me get through this Absolute break tonight and then we can all start talking about it

Seriously though, I'm thrilled they went back to the 1 pack version. I don't understand what people liked about last years design and setup. What is limited about a 16 pack box, with more hits than the previous year, and more boxes/cases produced?

Yeah I think that was the whole problem with last year is while there were some pretty nice hits in the product there was way too much produced!

Leaf Limited 07 was the best bang for your buck and was the first box I bought when i got back into the hobby back in 08. When i opened it I flipped out as I had pulled my very first 1/1 which was a Tony Romo Logo shield patch. That was a great way to get me hooked again!

The fact that they are going back to that style has me thrilled and I cannot wait to see how it turns out.

But now I need to go check out Absolute as I have heard good things lately.

I already pre-ordered this a few weeks ago. I have never had any luck with leaf limited. Never even pulled a $10 card. Hopefully this year is different.

I always had good luck with the one pack thing. last year i opened a box of it and it was like opening a bad box of leaf certified. 2-3 1 color jerseys #50.

So glad they are going back.

And yes if it is a step higher than absolute it will be great.

I just saw 4-5 boxes opened at lcs store and the stuff is multi color patch crazy

A couple people asked me about the break I'm planning. Expect to see it posted on Monday. 32 slots (30 hits, 1 base, 1 parallel/legend/insert) at apx. $35.

I thought Absolute was really nice and Certified seems decent. Is Limited looking like a "safe" buy? Case wise that is...obviously one box/pack is risky.

Yeah...I have the case coming next week for the group break here on Blowout once I get all the payments in. Looks like it should be good stuff though.

Ok, after seeing the two boxes Beckett got...not so good...hopefully they're holding back until they post a video. Although, I guess this means it isn't delayed.

That doesn't sound good. I don't like your tone

Limited looks straight out of the Empire Strikes Back this year. Just awful looking.

I hope that the boxes on the beckett site were just bla and go an extra hit by accident. That way I will get less $1 jersey cards in my 2 boxes. It'd be really nice to get something that is awesome looking. Just some wishful thinking.

i'm stoked that they're going back to the one pack per box deal. 07 limited is my alltime favorite product!!

I thought those breaks on beckett were okay. The Matt Ryan auto jersey was a nice hit and since we have all been expecting 2 hits and 5 cards / box, to see that it is really 3 / 7 is a nice surprise. If your looking to guarantee your money back, go buy a cd at your bank.

Looking for Andre Dawson Serial numbered cards that are his jersey number - either #8 or #10. So looking for cards like 8/8 or 08/99 or 10/250.

Lol, actually that's two AP logo 1/1 RCs from this set! The best cards in that set and yes, I'm biased! Love it!
