Default Real newbie from Ottawa Canada Football Cards

Hi guys,
I used to get hockey cards when I was a kid (Canada not much football). Anyways I am looking at getting into Football cards. I need a lot of help here. I used to collect the old ways where you go for a complete set WOW have things changed. I want to get a set from 2012 for RG3, I am a Redskins fan London Fletcher Alfred Morris RG3. Where should I start? I want to buy a 2012 complete set hopefully getting an RG3 Rookie card What sets should I look at getting? I dont mind spending some money and going for a risk either.
What company should I look at getting would love autographs (real) with the risk of getting something that wows! I wouldnt be able to buy locally as there isnt much up here.

Hopefully this is the right forum to ask this.

PS Should I still buy 2012 Boxes or wait until 2013?

Welcome to blowout. I think Topps are always nice sets and they hold value.

First off, welcome to Blowout! There is lots to see and learn here, tons of great pack/box/case breaks pretty much all the time. Have fun.

Regarding your question, sure, you can buy complete sets, but those are usually just base cards - no autos. If you want autos and other "good stuff" you need to either buy singles (here, on COMC, eBay, etc) or go out and buy packs/boxes/etc. If you buy boxes, you will get "hits" (autos, jersey, etc) based on the stated odds listed on the product. You can find all product-related info on the site.

If you want RG3, it depends on whether you want a rookie auto/jersey/etc or whether you can go for an upcoming product where he is included but no longer a rookie. Most players' rookie autos tend to be the most sought after. Hope that helps.

When you can, stop by my thread and let us know where you're from
