    One on-card auto per box (sad though that card companies have to use that as a selling point instead of trying to make it the norm)
    Jumbo swatches and patches

    Cons:
    Unnumbered Base
    High price versus yield
    Generic design
    High end price should mean highly sought after product

    I actually like the ornate design.

    The price has gone up at retail just because of the demand and the lower production numbers of this product.

    But I do agree, having the base cards numbered would be nice in a product where you don't get many base cards per box.
