haven't seen a sell sheet on this yet but if it is like last years i would stay away. more than likely 2 GU(based on last years) i believe there was only 1 auto per case

Read a review in the guide and it sounds pretty interesting. It did not give odds on the autos but some of this years will be on embroidered patches with Draft logos, College or NFL Equipment logos. They look pretty cool similar to Leaf R&S patch autos from last year. Does not look like a bad product. No worse than any other 2008 product out there right now. The only other choices right now are Sage Hit, UD Draft and Press Pass. Your only other option is to wait for some other stuff to come out or buy 2007 products.

I preordered a box myself (usually get one every year). Saw the early break they had on Beckett, and the stuff looks really, really good this year. I'm guessing the hits will probably fall 3 GU, 1 Auto per box on average, but 4 hits and a ton of RCs (with the SP chance as well), parallels and inserts, it should be a fun break at least.

I like that they are including rookie reprints of '06 and '07, with patches and auto parallels.
Joshhoward05
yeah i like the look Also.I like that Donruss Lower Priced products still look good unlike topps & UD.
drocksthaparty
them cards are sweet, I would definitely look into a box of them.

yea becketts early box break of it looked pretty good and the fact that u get 4 hits this year is great. the rookie xtra points set is lookin awesome too thanks for the feedback
degibson84
i may buy a box again this year. last years wasn't bad to me i just didn't like the 2 GU and one auto per case. although i did pull an auto. i traded the shop owner all my steelers junk for a few packs and i pulled a Lamarr Woodley auto. go figure i trade steelers to pull another steeler.

I don't know, but I ordered a box from Chris at The Hobby Box, so we'll see!

Just looked over a few box/case breaks of 08 Prestige over at the "other" message boards....looks to me like DLP is really throwing down the gauntlet. Some boxes have 5 hits...some have 2 patches....lots of nice low #d parallels. The flashback rookies are cool with updated photos. I ordered a few boxes, and I usually avoid Prestige to wait for Elite and Classics. Watch for prices to go up fast (and UD Draft to drop too).

I really like the look of 2008 Playoff Prestige. I think the Connections, TD Sensations and Stars of the NFL insert sets look like greats sets to try and put together!! + the fact that you get 4 hits per box is great!

I'm not sure if I like the reprint concept, bought a couple packs today (and a box that I will do later on today). Got a nice looking JSY card, but the front says Prestige 2007, yet only thing different is the copyright on the back says 2008 in the usual small print.
What is everyone else's take on that? I think it will lead to folks misrepresenting cards on Ebay and what not, as I imagine these will obviously be worth less than the original. So I for one don't think it's good for the hobby.
sasports
anyone know when they are realeasing the SP list?

Maybe I should have you buy my boxes??? That box would have made me biggrin.gif

I only got 3 hits in my box today. I'm gonna talk to Donruss really soon.
EaglesFan36
i like the rookie reprints because an easy way for somebody to get a jsy or patch of a rookie from last year on last years design especially becasue i liked the design and i dont think they have released the rookie SP list yet

I don't like it at all. It's a good concept if you reprint 08 on the card in obvious print, but if they printed the SP's from 07 and put them in packs, sellers will be really deceptive and try to make more $.

I don't like the up to four hits a box either, prestige is more for the set builder and now these guys will just sign more and more stickers to the point where it's not helping their value

i didnt like last years prestige but i think this years is way better. bought a box and pulled a darren mcfadden draft picks auto,darren mcfaddenprestigious picks jersey,dual patch of cutler and marshall numbered to 25,and a joseph addai jersey. i plan on buying lots more of the prestige.

that is true. I thought something looked different in the design. That does make sense (I hadn't seen any before I made the previous post, just had read about them).

Let us know what DLP says about your three hit box
BagwellFan25
I've always been a critic of Playoff Prestige but I actually like the base card design of this year's product. The RC's and the RC parallels are pretty sweet. The inserts are questionable but overall, it's not too horrible.

It is definately!! I watched a few Box Breaks on YouTube of Topps Rookie Progression. What a horrible looking set that is!! Prestige tops Progression and other 08 football releases by far!
