Another summer and Press Pass is heating things up with Redline. When it originally released a couple of years ago, Redline came in a large tin box with only two packs. Nowadays, it is spread over five packs in a more cardboard box. Redline contains an 80-card base set. If you want to attempt the base set, good luck as you will only get a handful in every box. Austin Dillon and Kyle Larson are featured with rookie cards. The design sticks out, but what would have made it stunning if each one was die cut as the background seems to beg for it.
Three insert chase sets can be found interspersed in packs. Intensity captures a split-screen type shot with the driver's face and what his/her eyes look like while staring through a helmet. Redline Racers has a triple pic effect with color shots of the driver and their ride with a black and white shot of them behind the wheel. RPM strictly focuses on the cars you see burning up the tracks on a weekly basis. Previous years has seen short prints among the various inserts, however the checklist released by Press Pass does not denote any this year.
Each pack of Redline will yield a relic, an auto or an auto/relic. The typical breakdown will be 3 relics, 1 auto and 1 auto/relic. There are a multitude of relic and auto sets. Be on the lookout for multiple relics on cards as well as the norm from Press Pass, on card autographs. Sadly, the Carl Edwards autographs are redemptions, which was unforeseeable knowing Press Pass. On the flip side, how many products out there will produce a possibility of 4 hits numbered to 25 or less?
