View Full Version : 2011 Press Pass Showcase Disappointment, Followed By Excitement.

Went to visit my parents for a couple days and stopped at the local LCS on my way home. While scanning the shelves I noticed Showcase packs for sale. My local shops only sell Showcase by the box, so trying a pack was less of a hit to the wallet.

I opened the pack in the car and the card was pretty thick. I pulled it out, but didn't bother looking at all the base and it ended up being a Carl Edwards- 1 Color Firesuit/2 Color Sheet Metal card # 95/99. Not too bad, but then I noticed the vertical crease running down through the card. So I put it back in the bag with the rest of my packs and headed home.

Today I pulled it out so I could send it to PP for replacement and also got a look at the other cards. There was an acetate card in the pack too, but it more than just an insert.

I'll just let the picture speak for itself. Sorry for the long read, Todd

I'm not really a Nascar guy either, but I liked this high-end racing product ever since it came out in 2009 and I open at least 1 pack each year. Only difference is that this year, I think I'll stop with just the one pack.

It seemed the logical place to put it. Can't sell it on a trade site unless you're willing to sell 100.00 cards for about 10 bucks.
