    SCANS O MY 1ST FB BREAKS OF 08-ICONS, SPX & BOWMAN STERLING

    Folks,

    Today was the day I bought some 2008 football. Did 2 packs of SPX, a box of Icons and 3 packs of Bowman Sterling. I went to the "expensive" store today because it was close and I didn't want to drive around. The owner thinks "discount" is an 80's rap band and his **** is at least straight SRP......Hope you enjoy the scans!!!

    SPX....$19 a pack....Flacco better get real hot so I can get rid of this **** and recoup a few pennies.....My opinion, poop for the price point.



    Icons....$89 a box....Previous breaks I saw in other places made me interested...Seeing Pinbreakers thread on his Icons break and the following talk between him and I was just adding fuel to the fire so I tried a box....all numbered cards scanned. Got to admit it was kinda a fun rip. Each pack had a numbered card which is of course a gimmick the card companies use. The plain jersey pieces-blah, but its BO JACKSON!!! Early Doucet better show up come regular season so I can get $3 back. Sid Luckman Letterman is cool for a legend of the game. The thing that "saved" this box for me was the redemption for a letterman of the AFC offensive ROY. Should be interesting to see how the redemption fluctuates in value over the course of the season with McFadden, etc.





    Bowman Sterling....Just hit the stores.....$50 a mini so I did 3.....Product makes you think you are ripping high end, which you are....nice looking cards, only 1 damaged out of the pack and I better sell now to get any value before the market is saturated with this stuff. The big thing is the McFadden jersey, OK break I guess depending on what these rookies do. Question: Out of the 6 pack box that dealer has open, he sold 1 pack to someone else who pulled nothing. There are 2 packs left in the box, do you think I am going up there tomorrow and buying them?




    Thoughts and opinions are always welcome.


    Collecting Interests: Ripken, Brooks and Frank Robinson, Old Orioles, Sweet Spot Autos, older Redskins - Riggins, Sonny, Baugh etc, Johnny Unitas and anything that catches my eye.

    Nice break.. the SPx was like my first box.. no autos.. the Icons is a fun rip as you get a numbered or auto or gu in each pack.. The redemption should be interesting to watch. I have pulled an AFC and an NFC .. ROY should be a good player.. I'm thinking about picking up a couple of each if they are cheap enough..

    I haven't seen the Sterling yet, but it looks like a decent rip.. (I would be getting the two boxes that are left)..

    Good luck,
