FINAL THOUGHTS

Base - 4/5
Design - 4.25/5
Fun - 2/5 (Due to powder and foreign blue material on many cards)
Value - 3/5
Rebuy - 3/5

Overall - 16.25/25 (65%)

Pros:
Nice look to the cards
Huge fan of the Atomic Rookie Die Cuts

Cons:
Rookie Jersey/Autographs numbered in the 1300s (What's the point)
Lower numbered patch cards are 1-color
Sticker Autographs
No Quality Control with foreign substances on cards
Boxes without a single numbered parallel
Very hard to tell difference between a refractor and xfractor unless closeup
Too many refractor levels
