  1. Can we assume that there will be variations in this as well? Can’t wait to get my hands on this stuff!

  2. Did the universities sign the contracts with stickers too?

    Very underwhelming. How come these couldn’t be on card since they are in college uniforms?

  3. How close are we to getting a checklist? Would like to know before some breaks begin tomorrow. Thanks!!

  4. wow nice pulls love the Printing plate. Exited to buy a few packs this Friday. Congrats on another amazing product.

  5. Hmm, so both boxes went over the 5 auto guarantee…
    When will you give us more info about the retail version of the product?

  6. This is a product that will have collegiate Football fans applying the face-paint, donning old Jerseys and cracking out top-loaders and hard-cases!
    Whether you like him or not, the Manziel P/P is a sweet pull, as is the Gronkowski auto. And, if the 2 boxes/12 autos is a reliable indicator of what collectors can expect on average? This years’ “Contenders” product will provide collectors with a very impressive ROI.

    Looking forward to securing my own box(es)!
    Great gallery, THack!

  7. Whats the differance between buying a retail box vs a Hobby box. Are there cards exclusive to a hobby box? I heard a retail box has 2 auto’s vs a Hobby bx having 5-6 auto . if you look att the price point per box and the autos you recieve wouldn’t it be better to buy the retail bx’s or is there a differance in whats loaded in a hobby box?
