2 box leaf limited break. Finally arrived.
 
I think its safe to say it was bad. A few low numbered cards I guess.
Mike thomas phenoms redemp? Never heard of him. Redeemed to see who he is.
Jim otto auto /50. Never heard of him $17 dlvd
Cornelius Ingram auto /something. Never heard of him $3 dlvd
Arron curry slideshow. Heard of him I guess. $40 obo Haven't seen any on the bay.
Gates 3 clr patch. Barely 3 clr /50 $10 obo
Eli/peyton dual probowl jerseys /100 $20 dlvd
Jamal lewis spotlight 3/5. $5 dlvd
Rest of the cards that are numbered I can do $5 dlvd, just shoot me a pm and I will list them. Pics to come in about 2 hours as I gotta go somewhere quickly.

Safe to say OUCH. Glad that was it.

well, his threads auto jersey /50 books 40. so I am thinking around 40-50 for it. LMK what you think

Sorry to read about this. Honestly, this is probably the worst limited break I have seen so far... Once again, sorry for the bad luck, and better luck on your next!

I'm in the minority I guess.

I think it was a decent break. 90% of the time you won't get your money back, but you got a 3 clr patch of one of the best TEs in the league, a slideshow of a rookie who has a decent following, and a HOF auto in Otto.

I'd take those 2 boxes over a couple of my boxes out of my case. I'd say middle of the road. Not awful, not great. Just mediocre.

Thanks for sharing your break!

It isn't the fact about making money back, it is the fact that you spend x amount of dollars to pull people you have never heard of? That is what makes it bad, yeah, he got a HOF auto, but it still wasn't as good as most other breaks.

brett06 11-03-2009 06:37 PM

I didn't need to get a sanchez. Woulda been nice. Just a better mix of players that I know.

brett06 11-03-2009 06:39 PM

Pics added. Except for the redeemed redemption. Hopefully it looks REALLY sweet.

I'm an optimist. I would never post in someone's box break "OMG that's the most horrendous break I've ever seen"

Instead, I try to find the positives, and boost people's spirits about their not-so-good breaks.

Its fine. It was not a good break IMO. I was looking for something colorful and nice. Hopefully the redemp. is both of them even though its a not so good player.

Well, the Jags have a ton of colors on their uniform, so stay positive :)!

Thats what Im doing. I'm hoping for something nasty. I know they are quick with their turnarounds so I will keep thinking positive and hope for the best.

Depends on the situation and how hungry you are lol. J/K Like I said, he was being nice, no need to get on him. I myself know it was bad. Im actually looking forward to the thomas redemp as it could look very plain, or VERY sweet. Im hoping for sweet.

While I would admit that getting Jim Otto might not be a case hit but just seeing his name brings back great memories. The great center of the Raiders- number 00.

If you don't know anything about Jim Otto, here is his bio:
James Edwin Otto. . .Anchored Raiders' offensive line for 15 years. . . Noted for pride, dedication, leadership, intelligence . . .Sure-handed ball-snapper, superior blocker with wide range. . .Overcame numerous injuries to play 308 games, including six AFL/AFC title games, Super Bowl II, 12-all-star contests. . .Named all-league 12 straight years, 1960-1971, second-team All-NFL, 1972. . .AFL's only all-league center. . . Named to all-time AFL team, 1969. . .Also All-AFC in 1970, 1971, 1972. . .Born January 5, 1938, in Wausau, Wisconsin.

He was a bad-as* player, just like all of the old Raiders. At least they didn't beat my Packers in the Super Bowl.
