Another great episode from the mojobreak tangent! I mean podcast. Topics covered are: Limited Baseball, 2012 Bowan, Ebay, Seau, Hard Hits, NFL Draft, Beef Sticks and so much more! Click link below
One of the most anticipated football releases has arrived! Its here and all your popular forums are lit up with talk of this quintessential auto release of the year. The big topic on everyone's mind is which ones are SP's? Could it be clever marketing that Panini has not yet released the checklist of SP's ? Ebay sellers are seizing the oppurtunity by putting SP in there listings and getting a premium price for it. Who knows when the actual list will get released.
Base set/Inserts/ and design
The overall design is very solid. Last year was a little to busy in my opinion. Like the 2012 camry ... 2011 contenders football design got a complete overhaul. Modern with sharp looking insignia's and markings really show off the rookies debut game. I dislike how they still have some guys in rookie premiere jerseys. Jerel Jerrigan is wearing number 3, Ryan Williams is wearing 00, and so on and so forth. I do realize that on card autos are hard to come by. Maybe im a big Jerel Jerrigan collector and want a card with him wearing his real jersey. I'd like to know how many autos these premiere guys signed between Topps and Panini. Talk about carpel tunnel. I just want to know when they are going to realize that Jordan Todman is on the practice squad and we could all do without another one of his autos. Homeboy has signed alot. The Superbowl ticket inserts are pretty pimping and a great set to collect. Love how they have each superbowls logo.
Our case had 64 autos! They promise only 4 autos per box but our case averaged 5.3 per box. We got at least one on card auto in every box sometimes two. It didn't take long to realize that all the on card autos are guys from the premiere. The great thing about this product is the guys that havent been in alot or any products. Guys like Patrick Peterson, Aldon Smith, DJ Williams, Dan Bailey, Alex Henery, Doug Baldwin, Jackie Battle and more make this exciting and great for team collectors.
You can pick up a box for 140-150 and even at that its a great value. Especially compared to some of the crap thats been put out this year. This years rookie class is amazing. Contenders over the years has had some extremely valuable rookie autos. Peyton Manning and Tom Brady's rookie auto will pay for Two cases of the new stuff. The best penny stock in the football hobby market!
One way to be different amongst all the football products you put out is to release a baseball product. Wha? Panini makes a baseball product? Believe it or not they do. No its not football rookie premier guys in baseball uniforms. Donruss Elite Extra Edition is always a fun product. For 70-100 bucks you get at least 6 autographs per box break. They also have hot boxes that fall every 5th box that have 10 autos! If your like me and love prospects elite 2011 is your new addiction! I still buy the random 2010 box of elite when I'm at the distributor. The checklist for 2011 Elite Extra Edition is pretty stacked. I think this years rookie class is great: Starling, Bradley, Bauer, Jungman ...just to name a few. They are all in this product! What i like about elite is you can here about a hot prospect 2 years from now and look for their auto on ebay and its only in elite products so far. Panini gets a ton of prospects to sign. Like stocks some of them rise in value! We are doing a 10 box break on friday and we have some good teams left! Check the buy spots area to get some mojo! 70 autos!

Very similar to the Rob Dyrdek show was our 9 box case of triple threads football! It started off very slow with way too many niners. I loved it but for a group break you want to see some variety. Boxes one through four was very vanilla. The Ridiculousness started in box 5 with a triple auto
Yep that is first rounders triple mojo! Its spot 1-2-3 to be exact. Cam newton is obviously the big draw here but Miller is no schlub. I think hes locked up Defensive rookie of the year. So came box 6 as Dan took over. Dan has been killing on football lately. His hot streak continued as he started off with an Urlacher numbered to 3, then came a Tony Dorsett relic auto numbered to 50, and followed by a Earl Campbell relic auto numbered to 10. Just when we thought Dan had peaked (not litterally) he gets the most epic threads box we've seen this year. It had two BOOKS! We knew it once we took the packs out of the mini boxes. Super fatty packs! So book one was a Dan marino! Book two was one of the best non cut autos you can pull in the product! Picture Speaks for it self. Oklahoma fans rejoice!
Frickin sweet! We did the random live and the vikings won! Congrats Chuck!
