    FINAL RATINGS

    Base - 5/5 (All "base" cards are autographs)
    Design - 4.5/5
    Fun - 4/5
    Value - 2.5/5
    Rebuy - 2.5/5

    Overall - 18.5/25 (74%)

    Pros:
    Every card is an autograph or memorabilia booklet
    Convergence of multiple popular card designs
    Each card individually wrapped (piece of excitement every time)

    Cons:
    Kills the value of booklets (For instance, 135 of the one pictured above. Thought the idea of pulling a booklet was meant to be rare)
    Priced too high
    Very feast or famine type of boxes
    Each card individually wrapped (could lead to damage issues)

    Once again, I'd like to thank our wonderful sponsors at Panini for giving us the opportunity to open and review this release. For more information on all their products, you can visit them today at www.paniniamerica.net.

    I just bought a box. It did seem a little expensive but at 2 am anything seems reasonable. Well see how I do. Hope I can at least get a booklet out of it. Looks nice.
