    FINAL THOUGHTS

    Pros:
    Two hits per pack
    Bonus box loader
    Always enjoyable getting more than one hit in a pack
    Nice switch to design of relic cards

    Cons:

    Same basic design of previous years
    Dropped from 3 hits to 2 hits per pack from previous years
    Sticker Autographs, something high end should never see

    Looks like you hit some good cards with this box but the "jumbo" cards aren't really that big. Looks to be barely 3 of the normal sized game used jerseys.
