If you liked the Flash that Cryptozoic brought in its Season 1 release of their trading card product for Flash, you shouldn't be for Season 2 either.
Picking up where Season 1 release ended, Barry in Season 2 now takes on metahumans with the help of S.T.A.R. Labs
So let's get to breakin!
Every box of Cryptozoic's The Flash Season 2 comes with 24 packs and 5 cards per pack. You should get one on-card autograph and one wardrobe card per box. Boxes are will run about $85.
Base cards are high gloss, top notch designed and capture key episode moments from Season 2. I think the design fits the theme of the show to a T.
There are 72 cards in the base set in which a box should provide you a set.
These are rainbow foil parallels I pulled. I don't see any details on odds on these but with 8 pulled, I assume 1:3. I really like these a lot and would make for a fun set chase. It adds a bit more flash to Flash.
Scarlet Speedster Deco Foil falls 1:8 packs. I only found 2 in my box however.
Not only do the base cards have parallels, but find them for the inserts as well in both rainbow foil and Scarlet Speedster Deco Foil.
Now onto the inserts. I really liked the bold cinematic images they captured along with the crisp designs and high gloss. They truly look great.
Metas fall 1:3 packs that consists of 9 cards. I completed the set and had a bonus card in my break.
Locations fall 1:3 packs and also have 9 cards in the set. I failed to complete this one falling just one short.
Quotable Cisco fall 1:3 packs and once again consists of 9 cards in the set. I completed this one as well.
Now flashing forward to the hits!
My first is of Wally West that is a piece of his wardrobe. It appears from this pic it's of his shirt.
And my on-card autograph. Should I mention it again that the product is all on-card?!! Yes!
Allison Paige as Eliza Harmon. Nice find in this box!
The overall list of Autograph Signers for Season 2 is:
Amanda Pays as Dr. Tina McGee
Andy Mientus as Hartley Rathaway
David Sobolov as Gorilla Grodd
Liam McIntyre as Mark Mardon / Weather Wizard
Logan Williams as Young Barry
Malese Jow as Linda Park

Neal McDonough as Damien Darhk
John Wesley Shipp as Henry Allen / Jay Garrick
Grant Gustin as Barry Allen / The Flash
Other hits not found in my break are, Dual Wardrobe Relics, Triple Wardrobe Relics and Printing Plates galore!
UPDATED INFO:I forgot to add this in the first time, but you can also find STR PWR cards. These were first found in Gotham Trading Cards season 2. The STR PWR cards are a new printing technology that Cryptozoic is calling "cast and cure technology" to add eye-catching prism/holographic effects to the cards. From what I see they look spectacular. However, not easy finds and come with a few parallels. Red versions are inserted 1:144 packs while Silver are 1:288 packs. There are even 2 more rarer versions in Gold that are numbered to 25 and Black that are numbered 1/1.
Overall, a pretty solid break in my opinion especially with the nice autograph pull. With a base set, some insert sets, parallels, some surprises and 2 hits it seems well worth the price if you like the show and if you compare it to some sports products that offer less for this price.
Season 2 is a tad higher in price than Season 1. However, singles go for a lot especially in the autograph department so even still if you want to get your hands onto some of these, I suggest a box break vs eBay buying singles.
