Here's my 2 cents...

10 packs, 5 cards a pack, 5 hits per box, no redemptions guaranteed & all autos are on card. Case hit will be a cut auto of a deceased player or a 1/1 patch auto of a HOFer.

Perhaps there could also be something focusing on some of the game's greatest plays and failures.

I like these ideas. I don't think we should go crazy and include kickers but some players that were amazing in their era like ilovethelakings mentioned. Guys like Ronnie Lott. Maybe do something like Quad Relic Autos of his with the 49ers/Raiders/Jets/Chiefs called "Career Path" or a college ties type deal with USC and Raiders relics. Same thing could be done with Junior Seau. Also include auto sets that feature great groups of teammates like the "Big Blue Wrecking Crew" of the Giants that featured Lawrence Taylor. The autos wouldn't cost too much, especially of the lesser stars but real fans of those respective teams would want them.

I am digging the Career Path and groups of teammates ideas. Lots of potential with each idea. Who would like a Purple People Eaters relic/quad auto card?

Yea that's the plan. The only thing is a lot of the players were 2 way and there were a few coaches/contributers as well. When I'm home from work I can look up who played d and get a definitive list to add to my post. That or you could just throw in everybody and have a nice full class contributers and all

Also had an idea to add to your greatest plays list. Not a big name but maybe throw Mike Jones tackling Kevin Dyson? Pretty much the most clutch tackle in superbowl history
