2009 Donruss Certified Football Preview

Posted by houstoncollector on June 15, 2009

More product information today, as we have our preview of 2009 Donruss Certified Football, which is dropping the ‘Leaf’ name for the second product in a row.  This may be a trend, and makes me wonder if we’ll see 2009 Donruss Limited later?

At any rate, 2009 Donruss Certified comes out on October 14, 2009 and will be in the now-standard configuration of 24 boxes per case, consisting of 3 mini-cases of 8 boxes each, with 10 packs in each box and 5 cards per pack.  Again, I may be in the minority here, but I think this product should really go to 10-12 cards a pack, given the cost of $10 per pack.    Admittedly, you’ll get four AU/GU per box, as well as 4 inserts or parallels, leaving only 2 packs bare, but having more base would definitely make that feel less painful, to me anyway.  The set overall hasn’t changed much, which is fine because this isn’t something that’s really been broken, other than the huge number of parallels, although they’ve cut down on the numbering of everything except the base versions of the inserts.  

Highlights:

Freshman Fabric lineup featuring autographed dual swatch rookie cards featuring the following players:  Mark Sanchez, Matthew Stafford, Knowshon Moreno, Michael Crabtree, Chris Wells, Jeremy Maclin, Pat White, Shonn Greene, Donald Brown, Josh Freeman, LeSean McCoy, Percy Harvin, Hakeem Nicks, Darrius Heyward-Bey, Brian Robiskie, Javon Ringer, Brandon Pettigrew, Kenny Britt, Mohamed Massaquoi, Glen Coffee
