    FINAL RATINGS

    Base - N/A
    Design - 4/5
    Fun - 5/5
    Value - 5/5
    Rebuy - 3/5

    Total - 17/20 (85%)

    Century Collection takes over where past Americana releases left off. Unlike most products, there are no base cards in this release. What you get is five autographs, relics or autograph/relics and one encased card that features one of the aforementioned. A wonderful touch is the use of actual postage stamps in some cards that connect with the subject of the card.

    For those who enjoy nothing but the "hits", this is for you. It's not often a product comes along where you get something with every card. With that said though, this is not for the regular, average collector. While the fun and enjoyment is felt with every card, the price is hard to stomach. Without a regular set or chase sets, it's hard to imagine cracking opening multiple boxes as once you've opened one, you know what to expect each time.

    Once again, I'd like to thank our wonderful sponsors at Panini for giving us the opportunity to open and review this release. For more information on all their products, you can visit them at www.paniniamerica.net.
