Box Breaks: 2 Boxes of 2018 FOTL Contenders Football

I'm not going to lie...I'm 100% dreading this break. I don't honestly know why I even bothered with this stuff as I HATED opening this stuff 2 years ago. I'm just a sucker for FOTL product. Yes I could sell these boxes on Ebay..but I'm really hesitant to sell sealed wax on eBay, just not comfortable at all. So I'm going to bite the bullet and hope for the best. I've seen a ton of the breaks and they are terribly underwhelming. You're only real shot at something remotely good is pulling a exclusive red foil parallel of one of the top rookies, otherwise you're basically screwed. Also, the Red Foil Parallels are embarrassingly disappointing. They are barely distinguishable from the regular cards. Bracing for a bloodbath but hoping for a miracle. Here goes nothing

Overall Thoughts:'s always good when you set expectations low because it's easy to meet, however, I must say I was pleasantly surprised by this break. It's still probably not the absolute best, didn't pull a BIG gun, but two on Card FOTL exclusive autos of Nick Chubb and Kerryon Johnson (that one is a redemption), considering both guys have sold more than $100 a piece can definitely be  considered a win. Also it's hard to pull 2 on card autos out of one box of Contenders so it was nice pulling the Tre'Quan Smith. Roquan Smith was the Bears' 1st round pick this past year and I pulled his variation auto rookie too. All in all not too shabby. Wayyyy better than Contenders Basketball that's for sure.
