2009 Donruss Elite – Opened 7/9/2016

I picked up this box at a card show about 3 months ago for 4 bucks.  It’s been sitting on my desk and I finally got around to opening it.  The box contains 40 cards and promises at least one rookie and two inserts numbered to at least 899.  Take a look at some of the base cards.

And here is my loan Buffalo Bills card…

#10 Trent Edwards

I have to admit that I have a Trent Edwards Buffalo Jersey.  It picked it up for 15 dollars after he was cut from the team.  It also came with a #5 Bills hat.  Now I just tell people it’s a Tyrod Taylor jersey.  Let’s Go Buffalo!

Rookie card as promised.

At 250 cards (100 base veteran, 150 rookies) and more inserts than I can list, it’s not one of those sets that has me wanting to go grab a bunch of boxes and try to complete it.  I pulled a few nice cards to add to some trades and/or send off to friends, but nothing huge for a personal collection or big hit.
