Retail Therapy: 2019 Prestige Football Blaster Box

What’s better than Retail Therapy? Clearance Retail Therapy! Since not too many new 2020 Football products have hit the market, we’ve been reduced to scoring what we can from the clearance bins. This box of 2019 Prestige was rescued over the weekend.

The set features a robust 300 cards. There are 200 veterans and 100 of the top rookies. Some of the rookies appear as Short Prints while all cards have parallels as part of the Xtra Points set.

One fun thing from this set is the number of inserts. We counted at least 10 different sets and each also has a version from the Xtra Points parallel set.

Prestige Blaster boxes have 8 packs. Each pack features 8 cards, with 1 Rookie and 1 Insert per pack. There is also 1 autograph or relic card in each box.

Here’s what we got in our blaster box:

Pack 1:

Aaron Rodgers Blue Highlight Reel, Jerry Tillery RC, Courtland Sutton, Jarvis Landry, Devonta Freeman, James Develin, Sean Lee, Aaron Jones.

Review: B-

While you always hope to pull the autograph when there is 1 autograph or relic card per box, we were happy to get the Michael Thomas jersey card we got. Our rookie cards left something to be desired although we are fans of AJ Brown, Dionate Johnson and Devin White.

Opening this product at a discounted price was nice. Even taking that into account, we still probably lost money on the break. It really seems like breaking last year’s products is a hit or miss. Without getting one of the big rookie quarterbacks, you are probably going to be on the negative side.

If you want to try your luck and can’t find this at your local retail stores, you can pick up a box on eBay for around $25.
