Certified. Strata is just too risky. You either HIT it big, or you miss completely with Strata. I speak from experience. Bought 2 boxes. One was a complete waste of money, the second was HUGE

Strata for sure. Even if you pull a base of Luck or RG3 you can sell those for $5. I've had more luck with Strata then I have Certified.

Fantasy football winnings, it's going towards a box, hahaha

Was leaning certified just because of how hit or miss strata is with the clear cuts

Certified is just as hit or miss as Strata. I'd probably go with Strata, not a big fan of Panini products.

Well that was the plan but neither dealer at the show got theirs in time to bring with them today

So I'm stopping at a LCS on my way home to snag one if them too to try, even though I don't like the look as much as last years, I figure me of all people needs to try one of them

Certified was a more fun break, at least to me...unless you're in love with the Clear Cuts, that'd be my choice.

I'd go with Certified, you have a shot at some big name vets and HOFers. Strata hits are rookies only and most are scrubs.

Ended up going with Certified, I was 50/50 so I went with the product that has Stewart hits in it, odds aren't in my favor, but I just want to pull a Stewart myself someday

I'm the same. I like the look of Certified.

After a few packs, I thought the base were hideous...but I bought a few Mirror parallels and they grew on me and ended up getting a box. Really like the Mirrors this year.

Me too. I'm sure if I searched for it, I could find the thread where I based this season's Certified when it first came out. Now, I'm a fan after having purchased a few for my PC.
