Dollar Tree break - all Panini products
Well, I had to run by the local Dollar Tree yesterday for some stuff, and I saw they had some packs of Panini products for....you guessed it, a buck. After seeing some people pull auto/patches from 0708 Hot Prospects at a Dollar Tree, I decided to try some of each basketball product - Prestige, Elite and Rookies and Stars. Bad idea. Should've realized, based on the print on the back, that there are no inserts in any of these packs, and the Elite is base only - no rookies. So, after blowing $30 on 30 packs, I came out with 12 rookies:
Rookies & Stars - Jon Brockman; Derrick Brown
Prestige - Tyler Hansbrough; DeMarre Carroll; Jordan Hill; Eric Maynor; James Johnson (needed all)
Rodrigue Beaubois; Wayne Ellington; Jodie Meeks; Darren Collison; Jermaine Taylor (all duplicates of what I already own)
So, yeah, unless you are going for the base set, I would advise against purchasing the Panini packs at Dollar Tree, as there are NOT any inserts/autos/GU in these packs. BUT...the 5 rookies that I pulled that I did not already have were all short prints...check out the link.
So, while I was pretty disappointed at first, I'm not so much anymore...I may go back and grab more of those Prestige packs in hopes of getting more short prints.
Thanks for looking!

Nice pulls for a great price! I gotta ask though, since I've been on this board you've only really bought blasters and what not. Why not save your money for some Hobby boxes of some cheap products? For instance 07-08 Ultra in $40 or a so a box and you get 5 hits including 1 auto. Just curious though.
