i opened both products & 3 of my 4 hits out of Aboslute Were #ed to 25(Terry Glenn Jersey & Glove,AP Patch,Paul Williams AFC RPM Auto) Very Happy WIth That Box

SPA Got Lawerence Timmons Auto,Dallas Baker Auto,Patrick Crayton Letterman Auto


So i was happy with both i would go with SPA Cause i love the look of the Rookie Patch Autos.

absolute actually has 4 hits

but i would go with SPA becasue those rookie patches hold value over time

I usually do not buy Absolute as it is too pricey for 4 packs (hate the $30-40 a pack stuff due to the risk). I did buy SPA and was equally disappointed (two scrub base auto rookies, two scrub rookies, and a Roger Craig Letterman). If you do not get a great Letterman (auto on fake letter) or great rookie patch auto in the SPA then it is not worth buying in my opinion. Absolute usually yeilds some nice low number peices and I think they are at least event used if not game used. Both are hit or miss but I am not going to buy another box of SPA after that first one so I would say Absolute.

SPA is nice but only if you can get a nice patch auto. As for Absolute....anything Donruss is hot its a well rounded company
chopinalex

Go with the one that DOES NOT have sticker autographs.

i myself am a SPA guy until i got dogged one of my lettermans or patch auto so i really cant stand them anymore.

I have never opened Absolute as I am a newbie, but I did open a box of SP Authentic. I got a Garrett WOlfe auto patch and two no name auto's. I really wasnt impressed with the cards look, but I was able to make a complete base set from one box. I think Absolute will be my next buy... that or Artifacts.

def Absolute i got a patrick willis jumbo patch /10 and a ted ginn dual patch auto /50 in one box. spa has too many filler packs.
drocksthaparty
def, spa it is a better box break, more things, The only bad thing is they put cornball rookies in the box. So you usually get 2 cornball rookies and an average rookie. i would rather spend more money on the box and be guarenteed at least a first rounder

SPA, definitely. The product is a hit or miss, but the rookie cards in it are some of the most sought after year in year out. Absolute might be better, but the card appeal in general is just lower to many collectors. Stick to the brand which has almost been out for ten years.

Absolute people have pulled alot of nice stuff out of it.
