Hey guys, Drew back here, completely forgot about the second part of this review. Here is the grading of Mike and I's box of 2009 Donruss Threads Football:
Design: The base have a very plain look. Under the name, from that part on is pretty ugly. Not too great Panini, but some good inserts were included. Not a big fan of the Triple Threat inserts, but many parallels look good. The rookie selection has its ups and downs but by far the nicest design of a card in this set are the Gridiron Kings. These cards look phenomenal! I pulled a Knowshon Moreno out of 25 Gridiron King, and it's really nice (picture below) Design Grade: C+
Price: Many cards, should gt you close or the entire base set, for about $75 a pop. The prices have dropped like 5 bucks since we bought our box. A chance at 4 hits is pretty good. The hits are decent but that's for the next section. Not a great chance of getting your money back, unless you pull a Stafford or Sanchez auto. Price Grade: B
Hits: Well, I want to say they are awesome, but there is the one horrible part. I'll get to that. In our box, we pulled a Donald Brown RC Letterman autograph, an Archie Manning jersey card, a stinky autograph, and a Mark Sanchez/Matthew Stafford Dual RC Jersey /500. I'd hate to say it but the Manning is the best hit! If there was an autograph on the Sanchez/Stafford it would be nice. But, from the stupid NFL Premiere makes it kinda stinky! It sells well, but does it matter? Would these football companies quit doing this? It seriously ruins products! Hits Grade: B-
Overall: Well, not too bad. I'm happy, he's happy, we had fun opening the box, what more could you ask? Overall we got some nice hits, and it's a nice product, I'm being pretty tough but the base are cheap looking and I'm not too happy about owning those. Anyway, not too bad, not the best box I've opened, but not the worst either! Overall Grade: B+
There you have it!
