My wife knows about my impatience with the product and was nice enough to pick me up a box. You will have to read on to see how I did.
Here is the box topper wrapper.
The cards are the same Draft Picks version you can find in the packs, but just done in jumbo size. They look really cool up close.
At first glance, I didn't care for the base card design. But, upon further looking at them and looking at all of them, I like it. Panini used team color schemes for the back ground split 50/50 with the team logo watermarked behind the player. Some of the team combinations on these look really nice. One of my favorites is Seattle's.
Back of base card
Rookie cards. These were the top rookie cards I pulled in my box. It was very weak in terms of rookies.
Extra Points parallels. These are the reds that fall 1:13.
Here is the purple Extra Points, these are numbered to 199.
Inserts. I was really impressed with the designs and layouts.
Acetate! Might be a tad bit too much since more than one inserts is made with it. I would rather see one done with acetate and find another way to do the rest. If I had to choose one of these designs to stick with , I would choose the Captain one.
Micro-Etched madness! See acetate feeling above...
My pulls. Nothing terrific, but one thing I know, you have got to give rookies time to see how they pan out.
HAHAHAHAHAHA only my third auto of his this year!! This one is an autograph Extra Points red parallel.
And finally, you should get one on-card auto per box. Mine, Mr. Cody Latimer. Another one of those, "you find a hit in every box" kind guy.
