    FINAL THOUGHTS

    Base - 4.5/5
    Design - 4.5/5
    Fun - 4/5
    Value - 4/5
    Rebuy - 4/5

    Overall - 21/25 (84%)

    Pros:
    On card autographs!
    SPs are variations instead of cards added to the end of the set
    Great for TTM/IP Autos
    Only a couple of insert sets/unlike its brother product, Allen & Ginter

    Cons:
    SP minis are the variations along with 50 cards added to the end of the set
    Mini relics not completely surrounded/encased, could lead to sliding

    Sorry. The numbered cards, relics and autos are used by the site for the Card Cash Store or as prizes.
