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.
This years SP Authentic is an extremely high quality product that excels in every facet. The card design is as sharp as ever, the patches hearty, and the 2009-10 NHL Rookie Class fully represented.
2009-10 Panini Timeless Treasures Basketball is perhaps the most well polished Panini release to date. The plethora of potential hits combined with the sleek high end design and affordable price tag make this set a winner through and through for any basketball card collector looking to buy a medium to high end box to break.

Good: Prospect checklist is filled with future stars, low print run on Gold and Blue Parallels, jersey cards are worth something, Topps brings credibility to minor league cards, Aaron Hicks cut AFLAC auto Bad: Autograph line up is weak compared to the jersey card line up, no Jason Heyward Auto, inserts are worthless and a [...]
Good: Tons of hits and inserts, reasonable price, robust checklist. Bad: Cheap feel to the cards, lackluster design. The Bottom Line: 2009-10 Panini Classics Basketball is the first basketball card product from Panini that I’ve broken to date. I was pleasantly surprised with the product, which is really saying something as I’m a lackluster basketball [...]
Good:Creating a strategy trading card game is definately a step in the right direction, the cards look cool, the online features are cool, the games are short. Bad: The strategy is pretty weak, too simple, it’s more like playing war with a deck a of cards than an actual strategy game, the cards ratings are [...]
For years, Collector’s Choice has suffered from the same “stigma” as “First Edition”, “Kick Off”, and many other extremely “cheap” products. To my surprise, this years’ Collector’s Choice Hockey was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had opening a cheap product. I probably got close to $100 worth of cards! I would expect that type of return from a middle of [...]
Good: Players like Roy Halladay and Curtis Granderson are on their new teams, which wasn’t the case in 2010 Topps Series 1. Kids might enjoy the Topps Attax Inserts. Bad: There is no value, it’s too similar to Topps Series 1, the inserts are pretty bad, the odds of getting an auto border on impossible, [...]
Good: Strong base set, classic design, compelling checklist. Bad: Lack of innovation. The Bottom Line: 2010 Topps Heritage certainly doesn’t reinvent the wheel, but its still an above average product that is worth checking out. Design I’m personally a huge fan of the 1961 Topps baseball set, so 2010 Topps Heritage scored big designwise for [...]
It is absolutely SHOCKING to see how bad Retail Packs can get! Especially after opening a Hobby box of SP Threads a few months back. In all honesty, if you put a 24-Pack Retail box and 2 Hobby Packs in front of me, I would take the 2 Hobby Packs without thinking twice! If you want [...]
Good: Economical, variety of cool inserts, Topps Million Card Giveaway Promotion adds significant value. Bad: Mediocre design, very limited mid to high end content on a box to box basis. Bottom Line: 2009 Topps Baseball led the flagship Topps set into dangerous territory price wise, taking a low end product that has historically sold for [...]
