Stopped by Sports Cards Plus here in San Antonio to pick up my pre-ordered box, and I must say that I got pretty lucky with the results of my break. Not the GREATEST players, but still pretty nice to pull a 1/1 or 1/4 depending on how you look at it.
I wanted to try out a few boxes of Elite because it is the first pro uniform product of the year for the rookies, and I am very glad that I did. I am always a sucker for the first product like this, but usually end up always regret it, not this time! I pulled two autos of GREAT players, and one low numbered auto of an okay player. I also pulled some good rookies and a Patch. Its not like I pulled a passing the torch dual auto or anything, but it could have been A LOT worse. Thanks to Chris and Pat at BlowoutCards.com for the great prices on these boxes. If you havent started buying all your boxes from them, you need to start now.
As you can see, if I were a Patriots fan, this would have been the best break I could have had.

Here is a pic because my scanner isnt working.
Well, we may have started off VERY slow with a bunch of junk, but we sure ended with a bang. Gotta love it. I will apologize ahead of time for the lack of quality for the video, hopefully I can get a new camera soon.
Its very rare that I pull anything when buying loose packs. Its rarer that I pull anything to even recoup half the value of what I buy. Today was not one of those days.
Sorry for the extreme delay, my wife had some baby stuff we needed to take care of. Either way, everything is fine now, and the Video should be up now. Congrats to our big winners Frank and Voluntarheel.
Here are some scans of the better pulls:
Andre Brown – Patch Auto (FRANK)
Matt Ryan Auto /25 (VOLUNTARHEEL)
Quad Pro Bowl Jersey – /100
(WILL BE RANDOMED BETWEEN THE THREE NON-VIKINGS TEAMS – ARFMAX IS THE WINNER)
Darrius Heyward-Bey Letterman 6/10 (VOLUNTARHEEL)
Other pulls were:
Austin Collie RC Auto /399 (CHAD)
Brandon Pettigrew Jumbo Swatch (ERIK)
Jason Campbell Team Trademarks 1 clr Patch (BOBBY)
IF YOU WANT ME TO SEND THE BASE FROM THE VIDEO, I WILL BE HAPPY TO SEND IT. IF YOU DO NOT WANT IT, LET ME KNOW AND I WILL GIVE IT TO THE LOCAL SHOP FOR AREA KIDS TO HAVE.
Random for the quad probowl goes to Arfmax. Congrats to him.
