Box Break: 2017 Donruss Elite Football

So after a pretty successful Bowman Platinum break, I felt like I was due for a letdown and typically football does that to me. Elite looked like a fun product to bust and so I bit the bullet and ordered a box and finally got to open it yesterday. Here's what I got

Overall Thoughts: Well, very satisfied with the break! I usually complain about getting multiple hits of the same player, because usually the player sucks but I'll take two autos of John Ross (one of them on card) over some of the other guys in the set all the time! I really like the look of the base set (sooooo shiny!!) and inserts too. It was cool pulling a couple of Brady inserts (one numbered to 49) and then of course pulling the DeShaun Watson rookie was nice. The Eli Jersey is filler but overall a very fun and successful break! I kept the mojo going! Here's pics of the cards!
