2014 FLAWLESS FOOTBALL GIVES YOU MORE FOR YOUR MONEY THAN ANY OTHER PRODUCT EVER!






The overall most valuable and sought after football card singles this year will be in 2014 Flawless Football.  It is likely the most valuable single Rookie Card will be the Topps Chrome or Bowman Chrome Superfractor.   However, the 191 Autographed Rookie Cards for each of the 19 (Carlos Hyde autographs did not make it into the product) Rookies (a total of 3629 cards or about 1.4 cards per box) in Flawless will be very valuable and highly sought.


The twenty jewel embedded (numbered to 20, 5 and 1) Rookie Cards with no autographs could prove to be the most valuable cards for the 2014 Rookies.  The 2012-13 Kyrie Irving Diamond RC (no autograph) #d 3/20 recently sold on eBay for $3250.  The 1/1 Diamond should be worth much more.  Manziel, Bortles, Bridgewater and Clowney 1/1 Diamond RCs will each be valued in the thousands.

2014 Flawless Football gives you 7 Autographs, 2 Game Used Jersey Patches and 1 Jewel Embedded Base Card per brief case box.  The following analysis is based on my estimates of what the average box of 2014 Flawless Football will give you.  If you don't like my values, use your own estimates for average value and see what you get.  In any case, 2014 Flawless Football is an outstanding value.

2014 FLAWLESS FOOTBALL PROMISES THE MOST VALUABLE CARDS OF JOHNNY MANZIEL, BLAKE BORTLES, TEDDY BRIDGEWATER, SAMMY WATKINS, PEYTON MANNING, BRETT FAVRE,



NEWS FLASH:  The SALE OF THE CENTURY Part 2 continues at Sports Cards Plus.  All your favorite products - our lowest price ever!


Want the most valuable cards of the top twenty rookies of 2014?  How about the most valuable cards of the greatest living NFL stars of all-time?  2014 Flawless Football arrives Friday and Sports Cards Plus customers' dreams of collecting greatness will soon come true.  

As always, Sports Cards Plus, a.k.a. The Super Hit Factory has secured tons of The BEST CASES in The Hobby at LOW, LOW, LOW Prices.  Buy it by the case, box ($1295 per box) or get in on our Friday, October 31st Group Break, or Saturday, November 1st Group Break at 3:30.  Flawless Football Spots are $140 each and every spot wins one random card from a sealed case.

Every card in 2014 Flawless is numbered 25 or less.  Only the TOP 20 ROOKIES and 80 of football's biggest stars & Hall of Famers are included in this product.  Limited to only 2600 boxes produced, every box contains 7 Autographs, 2 Game Used Jersey Patches and 1 Jewel (Diamond or Emerald) Embedded base card.  

Just for fun, I did a comparison of 2014 Flawless Football to 2012 National Treasures Football.  The "VALUE" figures are my rough estimate of "value" per average box.  

I estimated an average autograph value of $100 each for National Treasures and $125 each for Flawless.  The autograph checklist for Flawless is limited to about half the number of stars and legends that National Treasures included.  A stronger autograph checklist and all cards are numbered to 25 or less making the autographs more valuable in Flawless for the same star/legend.

While no rookie in 2014 Flawless is as valuable as Andrew Luck or Russell Wilson, all 2014 Flawless Rookies are numbered to 25 or less and the content is only the top 20 rookies for 2014.  The top 20 rookies for 2012 and 2014 are shown below (my picks).  Both are equally deep.  However, 2012 National Treasures had 135 different rookie autographs making it harder to pull a valuable auto rookie card.
