Default Tristar Hidden Treasures??

They have them down at my LCS for $95. It's a random signed mini helmet in a sealed box.Some big names like Luck and Griffen as well as HOF's but I'm sure they included a few scrubs... Have any of you ever bought one??

Yes, fun to open. Very hit or miss.

I like the product as well. However, I might spring the extra $20 and go for the Leaf helmets. Those seem to consistantly have better autos than tristar does. I also like that Leaf's COA is produced well. Usually it is about the size of a credit card and is glossy coated. Makes things look professional. Tristar usually just has plain paper inserts and includes 2 of them, one stating the name and the stats and the other saying its authentic. But again, both products are nice

Don't buy these - just buy the signed helmet you want off line from somebody with a JSA/PSA cert...

I bought a couple of tri star helmets a few years ago and got 2 sigs. from players that were not on the checklist. Just a heads up.
