Black Friday Buying Spree - Football breaks
I got the first 5 shipments of my massive orders from my Black Friday shopping spree (see my original post in the Baseball Box Break forum). I am going to post the box breaks for each sport under the proper forum. Here is the one for football.

1st box opened so far: 2011 Panini Gold Standard
Base (#'d/499):Jahvid Best, Sam Bradford, Joe Montana
Rookies (#'d/499): Nate Solder, DJ Williams
Golden Anniversary (#'d/299): Bruce Smith
Gold Leaf Rookies (#'d/299): Christian Ponder
Gold Leaf Rookies Materials (#'d/299): Leonard Hankerson, Torrey Smith
Rookie Autographs (#'d/499): Anthony Allen, Denarius Moore
Rookie Autograph Jersey (#'d/325): Christian Ponder
Here is a picture of the top 5 hits (value-wise) from the box.

2nd Box: 2010 Plates & Patches
Base (#'d/499): Matt Stafford, Marques Colston
Rookie (Autographed): James Starks (006/449), Devin McCourty (361/549)
Platinum Parallel (#'d/10): Chris Cooley (10/10)
Rookie Blitz (#'d/299): Gerald McCoy
Rookie Blitz Materials: Dez Bryant (128/290), Damian Williams (225/299)
Rookie Prime Signatures: Ryan Mathews (330/699)
Here is a picture of the top 6 hits (value-wise) from the box.

3rd box: 2012 Press Pass Blaster
Base highlights: RG3, Justin Blackmon, Brock Osweiler, Isaiah Pead, Alshon Jeffery
Blue Parallel: Dwayne Allen, Courtney Upshaw, Luke Kuechly
Autographs Silver: Audie Cole
I'm not posting a picture of this box as there isn't anything really worth showing.
Next break was 5 blaster boxes of 2010 Playoff Contenders.
Base Rookies: Danny Woodhead x2, Anthony Armstrong x2
Autograph Rookies: Donald Jones, Ed Wang, Nate Allen, David Reed, #129 Exchange Card
Playoff Ticket: Michael Vick (62/99), Brandon Marshal (01/99)
Draft Class: Bradford/Gilyard, Clausen/Tate, McCluster/Moeaki, Suh/McCoy
Legendary Contenders: Rick Casares, Fred Biletnikoff
Rookie Roll Call: Jermaine Gresham, Mike Williams
ROY Contenders: Sam Bradford, TJ Ward, Rolando McClain
Super Bowl Tickets: Namath, Lilly, Greenwood, Perry, McCaffrey, Eli Manning, Brees

After opening a few packs, I really like the base set and will go ahead and will be finishing it off. I am going to take a break from busting boxes to put the base set in order and figure out what cards I still need.
So out of the 5 blasters of Contenders I got 63 out of the 100 base cards along with 37 doubles (including doubles of Woodhead and Armstrong). So I still have a ways to go to finish off the set. Maybe I will just buy some more blasters when they go on sale again.

Decent names and hits from Gold Standard and Plates n Patches which are two very big hit or miss products. Nice!

RE: Black Friday Buying Spree - Football breaks
I was really hoping to get a Tebow or Aaron Hernandez out of one of the Contenders boxes or the Plates & Patches box. However I am pretty happy with what I got out of the Plates & Patches and Gold Standard boxes those boxes considering how right you are about them being hit or miss.

Considering I only paid $40 a box I am thrilled, especially since I paid $100 a box last year and didn't do nearly as well.

RE: Black Friday Buying Spree - Football breaks
I opened the five 2008 Score Super Bowl XLIII sets tonight. I got 3 of the basic (red) sets. However I got 1 Gold parallel set, and 1 Green parallel set. I am definitely happy about getting 2 of the different parallels. I will break-up one of the red sets and keep the others intact. Send me a PM or an open trade offer if you are interested in any of the cards from the set.

Some of the cards I will be marking later. I am trying to finish opening the boxes and organizing the cards before marking them for trade.
