In 1991, Jack Palance won the Oscar for best supporting actor for his role as “Curly” in the movie City Slickers, Jack Morris pitched his way into baseball history in Game 7 of the World Series and a new brand called Stadium Club forever changed the way we look at cards. Get out the screw cases, it’s time to rip open a box of the year 1991!
2010-11 Crown Royale Hockey’s corny regal themes and card design offer collectors a refreshing departure from the cookie cutter cards of today. After a seven year absence from the ice, Crown feels right at home in the hockey card section.

2007 PBA, Battlefield Earth, Scooby Doo 2, The Blair Witch Project and other premium trading card product previews from years that are no longer with us. Plus a bonus proposition you’d be hard pressed to turn down from recovering rip-aholic and peddler of fake Pro Bowl Memorabilia, the one and only Cornelius.
If we were talking about a product that carried a box price of around $180, this would be an excellent product. Seeing as how the actual box price is between $275-$325, Tribute simply doesn’t deliver enough bang for your buck for a high-end product.

Does it live up live up to the hype? Probably not, but it’s still a really good product that will most certainly appeal to hardcore Topps fans, set builders, kids and baseball fans with an itch to rip and are counting the days until opening day (hopefully not the product “Opening Day”, but the actual start to the 2011 MLB Season).

2010 Topps Supreme Football features a solid checklist, intriguing card design and the potential for high quality hits, but falls short when it comes to delivery – each $80-$90 box delivers a total of four cards, of which only one is a hit.
