what boxes are you guys gettin these nice hits on?

So I've absolutely killed it on 2011 Crown Royale, the problem is that the majority of boxes aren't all that great in the value you get from them, still a fun break because the product was awesome last year. But in the majority of cases there's generally like only 2 decent to good boxes and 1 good to great box, which is what makes my ridiculous run with the product in buying 1 or 2 at a time over a few months all that more ridiculous.

You can see the recap for the most part and pictures of the best hits here: http://www.blowoutca...oose-boxes.html

But here is the basic breakdown of the boxes

In my 11 boxes of 2011 Crown Royale that I've opened in the last few months, I've pulled............

4 /10's (3 auto'd (two of those also with a patch)), /15 auto/jersey, /20 auto/jersey, /25 auto and my first and only 1/1 auto that I've puled.

That's 7 autos and 8 total cards /25 or less

Then on top of all that, I have pulled Cam, Von, and AJ Silhouettes, a /50 Todman Silhouette, two more autos /50, another 3 multi-color patches /50, as well as a Net Fusion case hit

Then I've done my first and so far only two boxes of 2011 Plates & Patches in the last 2 weeks and I've done amazing again, pulled a cut auto /5 in my first box (only good card from the box though), but the second was amazing, the plate in the post above, an almost perfect Patrick Peterson auto (like 95% of his autos run off the sticker a few times), Castanzo auto /25 and a base /10 of someone.

But again, this is another product that really for the most part doesn't provide much value, the majority of boxes are complete duds, I've just beaten the odds big time.

Besides that, haven't really had much luck in anything as of late. Like I said, I only tell you guys about my big hits, but I bust a lot of boxes (way more than my budget should allow) and normally lose about 80% or more of what I spent on them.

When I texted my buddy about the Limited and P&P box, his response was actually, "awesome, you were due some good boxes" because I just have so many duds.

So unless you have a crazy itch to bust something, just stick to buying singles, or pick up like one and only one blaster from Target/Walmart. It's a slippery slope, the excitement of opening boxes waiting to see what you'll hit is strangely addictive, I totally understand how people have gambling addictions now.

But if you really want to bust something, let me know what your budget is, and what you'd like to pull as in if you just want a fun break, hunting for a monster, rookie autos, vet autos, etc. and I can give you a few good options

But stay far away from 2012 Limited, even after I bought it I was walking away saying how much of a mistake it was to get one of those, not sure why I did as I swore I wouldn't do any of them this year as the product has been HORRIBLE for those breaking it. You're more likely to get a crap rookie auto and two boring jersey cards than getting a good hit, let alone two autos and all 3 hits were great like in my box

Thank you sir. You have some mighty fine ones yourself.

Thanks, and while I do love my collection, I have one MAJOR regret.

I should have been buying up every Kuechly auto that I could find until about week 10ish, which is one of the reasons I'm so jealous of that set you've got here

I was very confident that he would become what he's already becoming, even made a bet for ROY at my fantasy draft and gave my buddy the field with no odds. He was selling REALLY cheap up until it looked like he was going to have a real shot at the tackles title and his cards really went up in price.

I only have 3 autos of his as it is, and one of them a guy gave to me for free with a Stewart auto I bought from him (which I still don't get as I paid him $20 for it and the Kuechly was a Bowman Auto 3-Color Patch /99 that sold for $25 at the time, hahaha)

Just picked up a cheap but pretty nice Stewart card through the forums, had never thought about it as I'd never seen one on ebay before but it makes perfect sense to own considering I have it's brother, and I have only seen one of those on ebay too, so I bought it, hahaha

Some random fairly new member messaged me about it tonight, pretty nice surprise

You guys will like this pairing for sure

I am so happy!!! Happy happy joy joy! We drafted A Star! I am already scouting for Star autos! Couldn't have worked out better. He was the one I wanted before we went on our winning streak. Now our luck has also saved me money. So glad we didn't draft a wr, cause we all know offensive player autos are more expensive. Here's to a future STAR!

I had to copy someone on this post. The card is not as good as far as the Stewart auto.

I'm going to not be an idiot like I as with Kuechly and I'm going to pick up as many of his autos early as I can, he's going to be a STAR (of course pun totally intended) in this league for a long long time.

Well this showed up today, and while it's not the card I was referring to the other day, it does go along nicely with the second card that I already owned.

EDIT: Also just noticed that they're both 2/XX, kinda cool, hahaha

2/10

This one showed up today, paid $23 dlvd for it, no idea if I overpaid or got a deal on it (hit the BIN on it) but it's the lowest numbered Stewart RC that I have now, which is why I was willing to pay that much for it.

2/5
