I may try a box out, but it seems like DLP is relying on a ton on the RPM this year, or is just me?

It's not just you. They look nice, but there are boxes that have only RPMs as the hits. Not to mention a number of other rookie insert sets. They're nice, especially the jumbos, but I'm looking for veteran hits too. I wish they would guarantee a Tools of the Trade hit in every box.

Love this set, but with the base RPM's and the nobody RC auto's it usually only leaves you one or two chances at a big hit. So i just pick up the singles. First pickup for 08': Greg Jennings Tools of the trade dual patch/auto /25. $35 dlvd. Pricey but if I'd have pulled it in a box for $120 I'd have felt like I got my $'s worth. Try and explain that one blink.gif

Thats what makes box breaks so much fun. I only paid $25 for the one above. But, I agree, anymore pick up the singles you want, you will be further ahead.

it is very nice looking stuff but way too expensive for my liking.

i dont see paying that much for 4 packs and rarely can you make your $$ back on it
xxxoooxxxNick
u hav a possibility of gettin 3 rpms a box, ive seen on some breaks, but they do # them lower than last year and more of them are autod
degibson84
ya i noticed that the autoed versions are #ed higher this year

i'm assuming that's because they are base this year?

not sure, the parallels give me a headache
degibson84
my wife and mother got me a bunch of packs today and they got 2 absolute

one had a Brian Brohm RPM with a little ball peice with writing and jumbo jersey peice die cut "11" #/100

then the second pack had a Donnie Avery RPM spectrum AU N(gold/white) F(ball) L(gold/blue) #/10

RPM's fell 2 ber box on average in 2006 and 2007 also!
They are considered one of the highlights since they are numbered as part of the set and classed as true RC!

Absolute is easily the most addicting product of the season!

at $140 a box.. limited autos great patches, true RC that can be autod or GU or both..

Sick!

I bought two packs yesterday and now have to temper my enthusiasm!
aceecards
although I must say the base cards are pretty bland this year! remind me of a pacific product a few years back
aceecards
Sorry one more comment!

The question you really have to ask yourself regarding Absolute is How good is this rookie class and is your collectible rookie part of the RPM or just part of the rookie checklist!

Thats very important information!

Anything that cost that much for only 4 packs of cards better have a guaranteed low numbered auto in every pack and be a rookie player that's still on a team, not undrafted, and be drafted no later than the 3rd round. Sterlings are pricey too, definitely not the worth the money spent. I bought a pack the other day and got a jersey card of a kicker! A KICKER! 45 bucks shot just like that! Well, that's my opinion on it.

For the value, I don't like it at all this year. Too many rookies and not enough superstars/HOFERS. Seems like that's what's Absolute is catering to since the 2004 products. People who like rookies.

But at least there are no guitar players or manufactured letter redemptions.

seems like lately there's no legends in absolute...it is a rookie heavy product...which is ok, but I definitely like variety

Great timing considering McFadden's breakout game last night. You must've been extremely happy to pull it either before or after seeing him break out and show why he could easily be this year's Purple Jesus and even better, lose his handcuff Justin Fargas to an injury. Last night's game paved the way for McFadden to have a HUGE rookie year.

Love the product. Only bought one box but got a Jake Long RPM Auto(PC MOJO) and Steve Slaton Star Gazin Material Auto /25...Both were redemptions though so that sucks. But I love these products where theres only 1-4 packs and a hit and some rcs...Ala 07 Leaf Limited
mvpujols#5
I havent busted any but i love the design AND the RPM's AND the Patches,hopefully i can get a box soon!
brandonfranklin42
i did pretty well with this product i bought a box and got a fote rpm an elway jumbo#50, i also got a triple patch of tomlinson/rivers/gates #25, and the best was a larry johnson patch auto #8/10 i also bought a pack of this and got a matt ryan triple patch card #1/100 this is a good product i mean if your in to unique items
miguelcabrera
i needa buy some boxes but i prefer singles cuz u always get wat u want so idk, is this product as good as they say, the box breaks on utube dont dazzle me much
metsfan2427
from the breaks i have seen they have been prettier weak and lcm doesn't look much better,
fsabala
i personally don't like absolute but thats because i got shafted pretty bad last year and i'm not a fan of the designs
barberromo2008
Loved this product busted about 12 loose boxes. No Matt Ryan or Flacco,but nice Chris Johnson, Glenn Dorsey, and Felix Jones. A few Tools of the Trade, a nice Emmitt Smith /50 and dual patch
