2013 Futera Unique Break
I haven't bought a soccer product since Man U SPA, which was probably one of my favorite products to open at the time: 1-3 autos (with a good shot at a big name), one jersey, 8 parallels, numbered insert sets, all at a little under $100/box.
So I saw this from BO (auto a pack? Sign me up!) and thought I would take a flyer, buying two boxes. It was only after the product shipped that I read up a bit on the company and the legitimacy, or potential lack thereof, of the autos. Um...oops.
Nevertheless, I've opened one box and it's been fun so far. Design is pretty nice across the board, good card stock, solid checklist. The on-card autographs are really sharp looking. The pricing is a bit steep though, in the neighborhood of Cup/Exquisite/NT, so you better hit something to get it back. Without further ado:
Parallel (of 240) - Gareth Bale, Toni Kroos
The Heroes (of 240) - Thomas Muller
24KT Gold Auto (of 1) - Karim Benzema
Not much needs to be said here.
Parallel (of 240) - Dani Alves, Johan Elmander
Archive Jersey (of 195) - Lee Chung Yong
Auto (of 55) - Gary Cahill
Guess you have to appeal to the market buying this product. And that market is...East Asia.
Parallel (of 240) - Joel Obi, Xherdan Shaqiri
Archive Jersey (of 195) - Thiago Silva (2C)
Auto (of 55) - Javier Hernandez
Parallel (of 240) - Michael Kadlec, Antonio Valencia
The Heroes (of 240) - Gareth Bale
Auto (of 55) - Per Mertesacker
Parallel (of 240) - Mesut Ozil, Bastian Schweinsteiger
Archive Jersey (of 195) - Iker Casillas
Auto (of 55) - Bacary Sagna
This auto had a weird foil thing going on compared to the other ones.
Parallel (of 240) - Marat Izmailov, Anatoliy Tymoshchuk
The Heroes (of 240) - Samir Nasri
Auto (of 55) - Anderson
There you have it. Putting almost everything up and thinking about holding/selling the other box. Best of luck on your own breaks.
