WHAT WE PULLED
Base: 11/50 (22%)
Redline debuted last year and came in a metal tin. This year, the box has been streamlined to a small cardboard box. The design of the base cards still have the black background and the slick feel across the front. However, Press Pass has moved forward with a rest of the design. There is a lighted area behind the driver and the bottom of the cards now has what appears to be either scratches or fireworks. Either way, much better than last year's effort.

Press Proofs Cyan /50 (1): Carl Edwards
Like their other releases, Press Proofs matching the four colors used to produce the cards can be found in boxes. Typically, some colors are placed in the hobby boxes and the others in retail. In hobby, these generally appear one per box.
Redline has three insert sets. Intensity and Racers focus on the drivers while RPM is all about the racecar. RPM and Intensity are carry overs from last year. Be on the lookout for possible short prints in the various sets.
Career Wins Rusty Wallace 4-color Sheet Metal / 2-color Patch Firesuit / Autograph /10
Pieces Of The Action Kasey Kahne 2-color Patch Firesuit / 2-color Sheet Metal / 2-color Tire /10
Redline Relics Dale Earnhardt Jr. 1-color Glove /25
Redline Relics Regan Smith 2-color Firesuit /25
Redline Signatures Carl Edwards Autograph /5
Recently, Press Pass announced they were adding an additional hit to Redline Hobby Boxes, going from 4 to 5. Extra hits are always a plus. I think all collectors would trade a base card for a relic or auto anytime. There are a multitude of relics, autographs and relic/autos. These also have different parallel levels within each set. As a side note, having all five hits being numbered to 25 or less is really nice, especially with multiple patches and multicolor pieces.
