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.

2010 Prestige Football card set checklist, product review, product details, and more.
Good: Set Builder’s Dream, Intriguing Parallels Within Base Set, Amazing Card Art, Throwback Parrallels In Base Set, Captures Great Players From Every Era in MLB History, Cabinet Cards Are Worthy of Being Framed Bad Disappointing Auto Checklist, Too Many Artist Auto’s, No Mini Cards, Chicle and Bazooka Back Parallels are too similar Bottom Line: This product is […]
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 […]
2009 Topps National Chicle Football is one of the best vintage products I’ve ever opened. The art used for the cards is inspired, imaginative, refreshing, and does justice to the game of Football. What’s even cooler is they used artists from Videogames, Comics, Sports, and various other walks of life. Topps National Chicle is Topps Mayo done […]
Good: Awesome design, tons of potential hits, plenty of numbered rookie cards. Bad: Hits seem a bit toned down when compared to Topps Unique Baseball, parallels get old fast. The Bottom Line: 2009 Topps Unique Football doesn’t measure up to its baseball counterpart but still makes for an interesting and entertaining experience. Design Topps Unique […]
Good: Packed with hits, sleek design, strong checklist. Bad: Price is heavily marked up by dealers, gold parallels are boring and uninspired. The Bottom Line: 2010 Topps UFC Main Event, Topps’ third UFC trading card product to date, delivers in a big way. As good as the first two UFC trading card products were, Main […]
When opening 2009 Topps Platinum Football, it felt like I was opening a product that should cost a lot more than $5.99 a pack! Topps Platinum for the most part is on par with the considerably more expensive Finest and Bowman Sterling products. I liked how the “non-rookie” base cards were made on a considerably […]
Good: Comprehensive checklist of prospect autographs, tons of hits in every box, sleek design. Bad: No Stephen Strasburg, lack of refractors, hefty price tag. The Bottom Line: After the train wreck that was last year’s set, 2009 Bowman Sterling Baseball is a breath of fresh air that puts the Bowman Sterling Baseball brand back on […]
Good: Great looking cards, packed to the brim with big names and big hits. Bad: Expensive, poor resale value of singles on the secondary market, abundance of low quality game used jersey cards. The Bottom Line: Topps swung for the fences with 2009 Topps Tribute Baseball and came through in a big way. The only […]
