Default 2017 Score football next week

This crept up pretty quick. Anyone opening?

I just took a look at the box break, and wow, what a disappointment. last year there was about 2 numbered parallels per box, and this year there is only 4.

If you took the time to list these cards last year, it was pretty easy to turn a profit, but once again they messed with a working formula. Last year I feel like they really screwed up Prestige, looks like this year its Score.

I'll probably pick up whatever Pro Jets Uni autos or memorabilia there is, but looks like I'll still be sticking to Hockey for a little while.

I'll pick up a couple of blasters of this. My question is how come they are able to get all the football out before or at the time of the draft but they cannot do the same thing for basketball?

They are all going to be in their college unis. I don't think even Free Agents who changed team(like Alshon Jeffrey) will be photoshopped into their new unis. It might have the new team logo on the card, but not a change of jersey.

Pretty sure that's how ti was last year if I remember correctly.

I really liked Score last year. Bought into a bunch of low-fi case breaks for fun and did ok.

Worried about this year. With so much 49er roster turnover I fear that I will only get players in their former team's uniforms. Hopefully some of the deep cuts will get their first pro cards. I'd much prefer that.

My worry is the lack of numbered cards. i can see cutting a few to expand the productions line, but cutting 16 numbered cards out is insane. even if they sold for $2 a piece, that was getting close to half a box price, even before factoring in rookies sales etc.

I loved it last year too, but I think I'll be staying away now.

I'll probably still grab some. I don't do much football but I started with 2016 Score and this new release will bring back some good memories. It helps that its pretty cheap too.

Sorry for the confusion, by box break I meant the breakdown on the product page here on BO or anywhere else, not an actual box break showing the cards.

Haha, but now that you mention it, they probably should have done a gallery today. Maybe it'll come on Monday then.

I figured last year would be the last of the Eddie Royal cards. That has been my main focus, and I was happy to see him included in at least Score this year. There is talk that Chicago will likely part ways with him, so I was sure that Panini wouldn't include him.

I also had to check out the Broncos cards. Not a single card in Score for Paxton Lynch, which I found interesting. I guess he has not played much and Siemien seems to be the safe bet as to who will start this year.

Good: Jacquizz Rodgers base card in a Bucs uniform. About damn time.
Bad: Desean Jackson cards.... in Redskins Uni. What the heck.

Decent design, but hideously overpriced at $90+ per box.

This is a low-end product and should be priced as such (i.e. $30-40 per box).

They still have the retail boxes at this price point but the jumbos are more suited to breakers.

What do you expect? It's not like he's had any photo opportunities with the Bucs. Would you rather have that Photoshop mess they do?

Does the price usually come down on Score like it does for other boxes? I might get a few jumbo packs from the LCS and just do retail until the hobby price drops.
