Default Did everyone bypass Elite this year?

Did the case busters not break much Elite this year or what's the deal?

I'm still looking for one of these:

2013 Elite Playmakers #68 Ahmad Bradshaw/49 SER 49

looks like this:

I was thinking the same thing, I haven't even seen some cards for Barkley who is all over this product.

There are so few Murray diecuts that have hit it is ridiculous.

either they rolled the presses heavy or no one opened it.

The AB is a /49 and i've only seen the one in the pic? Should have been a few of them out at this point?

The only other thing I've seen like this is that stupid 2011 Topps Mini Bowman /50...I've never even seen one of those, but you know base Topps they printed a TON of so...somewhat understand that one....Elite though???

I really believe that Elite took a massive hit when it was no longer able to produce college cards. The workout pictures just aren't as nice IMO.

The price is crazyness. Didn't Panini get rid of MAPP pricing? If they didn't I can understand why it is still at 100. If they did do away with it, a box should be in the 75 dollar range.

i think it's a sign of the draft class tbh.

This and prices are just to high honestly. They need to rethink their pricing. Draft class sucks and product is the same every year pretty much. I honestly think this year maybe a game changer.

+1. I feel the exact same way. I refuse to pay 100 bucks for a box of this. 70-75 I would buy a couple.

I have yet to see any DJ Hayden auto pulled from this product. According to the checklist he is suppose to have five autos in the set: Hard Hats /49, Turn of the Century /49, Status Gold /25, Red /5 and Black /1.

I skipped it because the price is too high this year.

Bought a few packs to check them out. Very nice design but subject to chipping quite easily. Rookie class definitely hurts an otherwise nice product which at a lower price point would be a good value. Only hit I got was a Lattimore jersey so can't help here

Just wait two weeks. Elite is going to be busted with a vengeance at the National this year. People who want to open football - this is their only decent choice. This is keeping the box price from dropping below cost as well.

In two weeks, once we all get back and start listing, you should be able to find anything you are looking for.

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.

good point...Panini always has something as a promo to make people buy stuff they otherwise wouldn't buy lol.

yeah it just popped up. I put a bid on it. I'm sure there are 47 more out there and they will show up, just saying it seems like more would have shown up by now if people were busting this stuff...and I think I found the answer based on what people said in this thread.

I'm sure Panini will move this junk at the National and they will flow out within a week or two like the other guy said...makes sense.
