    FINAL THOUGHTS

    Base - 4/5
    Design - 4.5/5
    Fun - 4.5/5
    Value - 3/5 (At current price)
    Rebuy - 3/5 (At current price)

    Total - 19/25 (76%, Much better product if price was still around presell)

    Pros:
    Huge focus on rookies
    Various refractor levels that are chase worthy unlike other high parallel releases
    Bonus Blue Wave Refractor pack assigned to all rookie autograph redemptions
    Throwback design inserts

    Cons:
    Price is brutal (happens every year)
    Not much money to be made on secondary market at current prices
    Hard to rebuy with many other products out there
