10 box break 2008 UD Icons (Clearance Special $69.95)
Wondered what was lurking in these boxes so ordered the 10 boxes for $69.95 from Dave & Adams. Figured may get an auto or two....or not. Didn't find any Auto's in 240 packs WOW! Overall not to bad of a value for the cost though. If you like parallels and inserts its ok. Nothing Hi-end here. Here are the images for what I did get box by box.

Box 1 - Die-Cut Lynn Swan #/88 not terrible couple of SN# RC's and rest are rainbow foils (which didn't scan that well).

Box 2 - Chris Johnson Jersey Card. I consider that a big hit for a $6.95 box. Along with a Desean Jackson RC #/799

Box 3 - Not so good. Adrian Peterson Rainbow foil

Box 4 - Not so good. Aaron Rodgers Rainbow foil [Image: 400402436.jpg]

Box 5 - Not terrible Brady Quinn Jersey, and Y.A. Tittle insert #/999

Box 6 - Early Doucet Jersey with a Favre Rainbow foil

Box 7 - Pretty Bad, Frank Gore Rainbow foil was the best card.

Did you buy retail or hobby?? Hobby says right on the box 2 jerseys and 1 auto per box (on average)...

I could use one of the Aaron Rodgers. Recently completed the set but Rodgers has a crease in it.

Nope its retail 24 packs 5 packs per box for poor folks I guess. I like the look of the base and inserts so shiny.

I think I am done lol. The rookie crop is huge and you only get 1 rookie and 1 die-cut which might not be a rookie in every box. If you hit some decent rookies it's well worth it. I would have needed to see an auto to keep buying more. But I still think it was a good value for the price.

It's amazing how stingy Upper Deck is with autographs. I opened 3 1/2 retail boxes of '08 Icons that was free with some hobby boxes I bought a while back and didn't pull one. I did get a few of those die-cuts and a decent Matt Ryan rookie jersey. But there's a TON of base to deal with. I remember I took a pic of how high the stack of base was.
