Now onto the review:
BOX BREAK DOWN:
- 20 Packs Per Box, 5 Cards Per Pack
- One Autograph and Two Memorabilia Cards Per Box
- One Parallel numbered to 50 or less Per Box
The subset card of Brother's In Arms that features all of the drivers from a team going into "battle" to win a championship is a cool concept and the design with the American flag in the background looks tremendous.
I also liked that Press Pass gave a shout out to the truck drivers who bring the cars to the race on a weekly basis in the Convoy subset and the layout design of that one is top notch.
INSERTS: In a box of American Thunder, you get a handful of inserts with one parallel guaranteed to be numbered to 50 or less. I think the parallels look nice and I am glad that Press Pass stuck to what they do best with their inserts and make them foil board.
Some of the fun inserts include Richard Petty "50th Anniversary of First Daytona 500 Win"and the 2014 NASCAR Hall of Fame Class Insert!
Along with American Thunder autos, you can also find Brothers In Arms Autographs with Teammate Autograph Cards 3 & 4 Driver Teams are double sided and Richard Petty's 50th Anniversary of First Daytona 500 Win Autos
MEMORABILIA CARDS: .Just stunning. The layout, design and driver combinations are top notch. The fun of NASCAR cards along with designs are the colorful pieces you can get from the many choices of memorabilia. Press Pass knows exactly how to use those pieces and turn them into a beautiful work of art!
The only problem I had here was the fact that a triple memorabilia card has the same exact numbering as a two piece. I think the double should stay at 50 however a triple should be numbered to 25 and not be the same. Something for Press Pass to think about in the future.
Along with the Brothers In Arms memorabilia, you can also find, Battle Armor that has Race-Used Sheet Metal, Class Uniform that contains a sweet 1 of 1 American Flag Firesuit Patched, a Great American Treads with Race-Used Daytona 500 Tires and finally Class A Uniform: Race-Used & Driver-Worn Memorabilia.
OVERALL THOUGHTS: Another solid NASCAR release from Press Pass that should have card collecting fans from any sport excited. The price point and what I got in this particular box may be a little uneven, but overall there are many big hits to find so not all boxes will be like this one.
