    WOW not a bad box. I think Americana is the best new cards this decade!
    My only bad thing is with 16 cards in a box you should "NEVER" get doubles ever! Love the fact they brought us a series 2 and from what I have seen they did not disappoint. If you want a box chock full of guaranteed hits this product is the one. I give this box 4 out of 5 thumbs up (sorry that double hurt). If you love nonsports or just celebrity type stuff grab a box!!! I know I have.

    RATINGS-
    Box overall- 4 of 5 (scoring a double on a base is crazy)
    Card Look- 4 of 5 Kept same look from series 1 (wasn't crazy about series 1 design) But love the Ring Kings and Hollywood Legends
    Insertion Rate Pulls- 4.5 of 5 (got 4 out of 4 on the pulls 3 being auto's, but 2 same base)
    Bang for the Buck- 5 of 5 You can't go wrong here

    I want to personally thank the good folks at Donruss for the box. Keep a lookout for these cards to become available to you the members/staff through contests and giveaways.

    I really love the Americana but actually I have had better pulls buying the retail blasters at $20 each. For the price of a Hobby box you can pick up 4-5 blasters and score just as good and probably better. IMO
    Nice review George!
