2010 Absolute Memorabilia Box Break & Review

Design:Photobucket

Absolute’s design barely changes from year to year.  They make good use of the rainbow foil technology which I think looks best in this product.  The one thing I notice with foil being used on thicker cards such as relics, is the fact that sometimes it can peel around the edges.  As for the box design itself, I think they should go back to a simple cube shape.  This new design makes it harder for dealers to stack them.

Price: Photobucket

Hobby boxes are currently selling for around $130.00.  Considering you get a hit in each of the four packs and Absolute has some of the nicest looking patches, its not totally insane.

Hit Quality: Photobucket

As I mentioned before, Absolute has some of the coolest looking hits, especially when it comes to patches.  I pulled the following:

  • Joe Haden Spectrum Auto #’ed/25
  • Dexter McCluster Jersey/Ball/Jersey Auto #’ed/299
  • Gates / Sproles / Rivers Triple Jersey #’ed/75
  • Vince Young Dual Patch #’ed/50

Overall: Photobucket

Overall, I’ll give 2010 Absolute Memorabilia 3.5 footballs out of 5 (1=poor & 5=perfect).  Collectors are almost guaranteed to pull some nice cards for their collection.  Granted, when you have a bunch of nice looking patches which are easier to pull, the resell value might not always be as high, but thats not what everyone is looking for.  Absolute will continue to be one of my personal favorite football products to bust.
