Well Cam newton made and appearance on sunday twice! Its crazy that two pieces of cardboard are worth more than 1000$. I had cars that were'nt worth that much. We did 6 more boxes of Contenders 2011 football and this stuff continues to deliver. Prices are going up at LCS and ebay for a good reason. Best bang for your buck in 2011. Still no word on short prints.
Cam #2 of the day came in a 5 star 4 box break we did. Im not tottally on the Five Star bandwagon. Last year i loved it. Seemed like there were alot more multi colored jerseys. This year the focus was on dual autos and single colored booklet autos. For a 500$ product i had hoped for some more glitz. People are losing their ass on this stuff. I know we shouldnt be in the hobby for the profit but cmon most boxes/cases are get 20% return on average for there investment. We shouldnt see Todman, Powell, Ridley, and other non impact rookie premeire guys on a top shelf product like this. I know they probably had them sign before the season but maybe we can invent a grab bag product for topps/panini that come end of the season when we determine which guys suck and or are on the practice squad we can make a product that has the reject autos (so they can recop some money) and chase cards. So i guess what im saying is pull these guys out of this product! Leave some room in the autograph budget for players who dont perform or make the team. Just a thought. They did take a step in the right direction by adding autographed jerseys, balls, helmets. The product was too predictable with the layout. National treasures has different designs of there cards so you dont know what to expect. Look for our National treasures 2011 breaks being put up in the next few days.
