2009 Donruss Threads Football Preview

Posted by houstoncollector on May 8, 2009

Hope everyone’s ready for their weekend.  It seems that again I’m here with a preview of a product that …. well, we knew it was coming out, but I haven’t seen anyone actually have a preview for yet.  So much for Donruss’ support of Beckett, I guess.  Not that they’re talking to us of course.  This time, I have a preview of 2009 Donruss Threads Football, which is due out August 26, 2009 at a price of approximately $4 per pack (presume about $90 a box).  The packout hasn’t changed, at 5 cards a pack, 24 packs a box, and 12 boxes a case.

Here’s the layout of the set:
