I picked up a retail box of 2008 SAGE Hit High Series while I was out and about and have to say I am very pleased with the product.

The box guarenteed two autographs and 10 six card packs which each inlcuded one glossy parallel.

The High Series is also loaded with the big names from the draft. It seemed pack after pack I was pulling Darren McFadden, Matt Ryan and other top names.

Overall, this was a good break as I completed most of the set. The box gives the chance to complete the set, but you have to hope for no duplicates.

The High Series also has dual player cards which pair two stars on one card, and some even bring back players from the 2007 draft class.

For just $20, a near complete base set, two autos, and 10 parallels is well worth the buy.
