2 Blasters of 2012 Contenders Football- Think I hit a SSP!!
So for the last couple days I have been searching around my area for these blasters. Luckily I have a Walmart, Target and Meijer all within 5 miles of where I live lol.
So I checked Walmart and Meijer today and nothing, but as I go down the card aisle at Target there was a guy restocking the shelves :) I didnt see any Contenders out so I asked him if he knew if he had any in the boxes that were unopened yet and he checked for me and there were 3 blaster boxes.
I bought two of them and the results were:
First blaster box:
Chris Rainey Rookie Ticket Auto Redemp: One sold for $100 and others are listed at $160 and $45 so I listed mine at $75.
Alfred Morris Rookie of the Week Insert Week 12 Winner
Russell Wilson Rookie Stallions Insert
So not too bad for the first blaster. I was really hoping to hit a Blair Walsh but did not unfortunately. Hes probably in the blaster I left on the shelf lol.
RG3 Rookie of the Week Insert Week 4 Winner
Trent Richardson Rookie Stallions Insert
Then the big hit (or at least I think so??): Janoris Jenkins Rookie Ticket Auto VARIATION!
None have been listed on eBay so far, besides mine which I just listed with a high BIN/BO option.
So does anyone think this Jenkins will be really short-printed? It wasnt on the original SP list of Contenders released by Panini last week, but I have a feeling that the Variation will be tough to find.
Does anyone have an idea of a fair value on it? If someone sends me a nice offer I'm not going to get greedy and turn down a big number, but I was hoping some more experienced Contenders collectors on here could tell me what kind of value would be appropriate for it.
Also is the price on the Chris Rainey fair? I don't want to undersell myself. Someone does have one listed for $45 but that could just be some idiot who knows lol.
Thanks for any info and help guys!

Nice blasters. Is 1 auto gauranteed in every blaster? Or did you just hit it good in retail today?

Janoris Jenkins Variations are limited to 50. The regular version is to 292. Great Pull Congrats
Correction: reg version is 292

Why does the Rainey sell so well when you get 1 auto per blaster? I would think it would go for less then $10. Please give insight, thank you.

I pulled the Dont'a Hightower Variation SP /10 and sold it for 700. And Kellen Moore variation is SP/50 and his regular is /198. Thats just a killer pull from retail though. I had to bust a case to pull the Hightower lol.

This is definitely a better retail pull than I thought.
