    Sp Authentic 137.95 = Not worth it in my opinion
    SPx 109.95 = It has been hit or miss

    What about these ones; Press Pass or Press Pass Legends? I didn't mention Sage because I don't like it as much and PP is on the card autos.

    Of course all these are my personal opinions and no way are the opinions of SCF as a whole. Good luck and I call dibbs on Matt Schaub and the Steelers. :)

    Can you pm me with the site you are talking about?

    what are you going for hits or sets that makes the diff. if sets topps and bowman chrome as long as you got the frist 50 cards from bowman.

    hits hes #2 and contenders the odds of hitting a bigger name or short is like 1 out of 12 i think i dont mean a bush young or leinart but think of this draft class there are so many quilty autos. so it just depends me i dont like any upper deck. topps chrome is the best to me when it first came out now it way over priced but. good luck but its a hobby just open for fun we all want that monster hit. if you read in last month beckett a man in jacksonville nc got the 1/1 reggie bush auto at a store called grand slam sports. well to make a long store short lets say i had them boxes in my hand went to the counter and then turned around ad bought somthing else. yes thats the die i dyed alittle inside. i say it over and over just have fun it it looks good to you buy it.

    I am not a big set collector, but who knows lol.

    I have had some great luck with Topps Turkey Red this year, half tempted to buy a box instead of busting just single packs lol. I've pulled a 1/1 press plate of DeAngelo Williams and a Jay Cutler Topps signature Edition auto from maybe my luck could keep going lol.

    So far it looks like i might get 2 boxes of Topps Turkey Red and 1 Gridiron gear, but still unsure. I'll wait for some more opinions. But I know for sure what ever I do end up buying I will at least get one Topps Turkey Red lol.

    You will of course hear how people have been burned with Gridiron but as tint says it is a gamble and breaks should be for fun and not the monetary value per box. What you have pulled in the past from Red makes it sound like a sweet idea, good luck.

    thanks man. I will definetly being doing some live breaks once I do recieve the boxes, after i decide what to get lol. I love breaking packs, its gambling, its addicting and exciting lol. Been doing it sense I was little. Maybe just maybe I'll break the habbit, but seriously doubt it lol. Oh well I guess a couple hundred dollars each month aint so bad..or maybe its a horrible habbit haha. But most of the time I make more than what I spend on the boxes..just hope my luck keeps up.
