    2012 Press Pass

    2012 Press Pass


    Per Box Items:
    30 packs per box
    6 cards per pack
    1 race used memorabilia card per box

    Press Pass sell sheet

    The standard sized cards feature a full color action shot of the driver, car or a memorable moment from the 2011 season. The border-less cards have the set logo in the top corner and a graphic at the bottom with the driver's name and car number. The card fronts are trimmed in silver foil. The card backs show a different photo of the driver, car, or event shown on the front. The backs also include moderate career highlights and their 2011 statistics.

    What I pulled:
    184 cards
    100/100 base set cards = 100% of the base set!
    49 base duplicates = 49% of a second base set
    28 non-serial numbered inserts and parallels
    1 serial numbered insert
    1 race used memorabilia card

    Base card front and back:


    The Inserts and Parallels: (not all scanned)
    7 gold parallels
    13 Snapshots mini cards
    Showcar 1, 4
    Showman 2, 3

    HOF class of 2012 #135
    Platinum Parallel #/35 #81

    The Hits:
    Dale Earnhardt Jr.
    Ultimate Collection 3-color patch #/25

    2012 Press Pass Racing returns to what Press Pass does best - racing card sets. Great collation with one and a half complete sets rocks. Great looking inserts and parallels will be fun to chase. The cards are listed alphabetically by the driver's last nice which makes for easy sorting. With a limited number of drivers available, the main set is broken down into several sub-sets. There are cards of drivers from the Sprint, Nationwide and Truck series. There are also cards of 2011 season highlights and notable events. One thing I did notice is that several of the cards have dinged corners and edges. I will not call the set condition sensitive, but I would like to have seen the cards come out of the packs in a little better shape.

    The Bottom Line:
    I give 2012 Press Pass Racing a buy rating. Pulling a complete set from a box is always a plus. Really cool inserts and parallels and a sweet hit of one of the most popular drivers? Yes please!

    The Final Score:
    Final Ratings (Out of 5):
    Base set collect-ability: 5/5
    Big-hit Hunter: 4/5
    Prospector Hunter: NA
    Overall Design: 4/5
    Fun: 5/5
    Value: 4/5
    Re-buy: 4/5
    Overall Quality: 4/5

    Overall: 30/35 (86% = B)

    Press Pass sent me this box to review for Full Spectrum Baseball. I am also offering base cards to members here for a SASE.

    Thanks to Press Pass for making this review possible!
