2010-11 Artifacts Hockey is essentially the same early season hockey card offering as in season’s past, the only difference is that this year it faces off against Panini’s 2010-11 Certified Hockey, which is a better product.
Sports Card and Sports Memorabilia Product Reviews and User Reviews Information.
2010 Topps Chrome is an above average football card offering that feels one hit shy of being an excellent product. That said, this season’s Topps Chrome is an upgrade over last season’s in nearly every possible way. I would recommend this product to set builders, but not collectors who are all about the hits.
An amazing Rookie Class and slightly improved card design combine to make 2010 Topps Chrome a substantial upgrade over last seasons. 2010 Topps Chrome is an excellent product that delivers 2 Autographs and a handful of refractors and numbered inserts per $60-$80 box.
It’s not good, it’s not bad, it’s Prestige. If you’re excited to get the 2010-11 NBA rookie class and LeBron wearing a Heat jersey in your hands ASAP, then by all means grab a box of Prestige. 2010-11 Prestige is far from a terrible product, just don’t expect it to re-invent the basketball card.
Simply put, the best Elite Extra Edition of all-time and one of the most polished prospecting products in recent memory. Each $80-$100 hobby box delivers 6+ autographs and several low numbered die-cuts.
Finest Football is among the finest products of the early 2010 football card season. The hits are high quality, the refractors plentiful, and the 60-card box total strikes a perfect balance between too many and too few cards.
2010 Topps Pro Debut Series 2 is a medicore prospect product that lacks the electricity of products like 2010 Donruss Elite Extra Edition. Series 2 lacks direction and the novelty has worn off since Series 1 released this past summer.
Threads is a slightly above average football card offering that lacks variety. That’s not to say it doesn’t have it’s moments, the base card photography is arguably the best Panini’s ever printed on cardboard.
Icons has plenty of Ric Flair, but the products overall lack of flair led to an average at best box break experience. This is one of those products that takes an amazing box to enjoy.
From the Gridiron Giveaway code cards to the front numbered Rookie Premiere Auto’s, 2010 Topps Football is an improvement upon last seasons in nearly every possible way.
2010 TriStar Obak is a delightfully odd, low numbered, vintage product that is able to create the feeling that you are opening a 100-year old box of cards. If Tim Burton created a baseball card product, it would be Obak.
By just looking at the cards and the ratings, Attax makes very little sense. But once you play a game, it’s actually pretty interesting and fun. The cards themselves aren’t the greatest looking, but if I were ten years old, I think I would definately be addicted to this game.
Rookies & Stars is an excellent rookie geared football card offering that carries a reasonable box price of around $80. The manufactured logo rookie patch auto’s are sharper than ever and the product as a whole is an improved version of 2009 Rookies & Stars.
2010-11 Victory is a generic hockey card product that carries a low $1 per pack price point. Kids and budget set builders will probably enjoy the product far more than most collectors. I would recommend holding off for the far superior 2010-11 OPC Hockey, which carries a similar pack price point.
Good: Can be thrown away or recycled, the perfect balance between “crap” and “suck”, Quad Harold Baines Error, Errors and Corrected Errors, Set contains actual Major League Baseball Players Bad: The Burden Of a Generation, You can never throw away all of them, crappy card design, millions upon millions print run, may or may not […]
2010 Topps Tribute is a solid high-end baseball product that brings plenty of relics and autographs of legends, current stars, and a couple rookies names Jason Heyward and Stephen Strasburg to the checklist.
Unfortunately, 2010 Classics is as generic as it’s name. At times it’s can be appealing, but for the most part it struggles to differentiate itself from similar Panini Products, never establishing an identity.
Allen & Ginter returns for another year of mystery, intrigue, and oddities. Perhaps no product takes longer to unveil the mysteries sealed within it packs than Topps’ yearly trip to the “state fair” of cards.
