Hey,
I just need a little help.

I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on which set to make this year. (I know it's a little late but I have all summer to make the set before the 09 season comes along)

Looking for something that isn't TOO expensive to complete but something that is a little challenging to make.

Thanks,

Michael

Masterpieces are inexpensive and a little tough to get the SP's.

Mike, it depends on what you like.

Many collectors favorite set this year was the Masterpeices football. It has great player pictures and a nice mixture past and present players along with rookies. There are 10 Time warp short prints, and 10 shortprint rookies in the 110 card set (actually a few less than 110 as a few cards were not produced, see checklist on UDs site). I would highly recommend this one if you like old and new football players.

My second favorite sets this year were Topps Chrome and Bowman Chrome. I preferred Topps Chrome since they were all in one box, whereas the Bowman Chrome were in the base Bowman product (first 55 chrome rcs) and Bowman Chrome (final cards 56-220). Both of these sets will present a challenge to build but if you like Chrome cards then these are probably the better two sets to chase.

If you are into a mix of college players and pros, then you might also like UD Draft football. It has shortprints (NFL vets are 2 per pack), numbered parallels, and shortprinted rookie pairing cards (1 per 2-3) packs in the 250 card set. It is a challenging set, but nice looking and fun.

Most everything else would either have way too many shortprint rookies like LCM, Leaf R&S, Gridiron Gear, Prestige, Elite. Or the set is pretty easy to complete like Topps base set or Bowman.

Just my thoughts on what I liked this year.

I agree with the masterpieces, topps chrome, and bowman chrome. Are you trying for a master set or just base and rookies? I am trying to put together the 2008 Leaf R&S set. It is relativly inexpensive but extremely large set to build. The matt ryan auto is only$150.00 to give you an idea of pricing on it.


Whatever you decide to try for let me know as i have tons of most products from 2008! wink.gif

Thanks for the help guys,

I think I'm going to go with the Masterpiece set.
And to answer your question Sasports I will most likely be trying to put together a base/rookie set for now... seeing as it will be my first football set.
