Wow what pulls T. I always have like the regular Press Pass release each year and this yearwas even better. As most said bringing back the 1999 Signing scheme was a winner. These auto were always one of my favorites. Not a fan of having to chase SP's but the classic design of the Cool Persistence insert was great. I think they even up the design of the Cup Chase this year. Like the way the B&W for parallels instead of the old Golds. All in all really impressed with Press Pass this year. Already nought half case and might have to buy more. Give them 5 stars on this release.
