Pros:
On card signatures for all but 8 subjects
Nice card design especially way to denote year of HOF Induction
Chance to win a trip to the Baseball HOF

Cons:
Only 1 autograph per box
Insert overkill to "add value" to the box (12 non-numbered insert sets)
SP base cards
Virtually no value in most boxes (have to rely on the one hit)
Could have been planned/thought out better
