Nice design, not a lot of bang for buck though in my opinion


Probably closer to 3 1/2 stars. Overall happy with the design, however the edges are susceptible to chipping and obvious dings from the production process. Many of the images are ‘dark’ which detracts from the visual element. First box included Bart Starr Immortals /25 and Terrelle Pryor auto /25 and LeSean McCoy Fabric /15. All listed and sold on eBay to cover costs. More to be opened in the next week

I broke 2 boxes of the product andI’m kind of torn. My “Alpha Hit” from box 1: Andy Dalton dual-1/C swatch auto RC. Box 2: 3/C auto-patch Jim Kelly “Immortals” /25. I pulled a 2nd auto, that of a lineman, from the box that yielded the Dalton.
My other pulls were 1/C swatches that we all know sell for perhaps $3-8 on the 2ndry market.

I love the committment Panini has demonstrated in raising the bar with regard to bang for buck and innovative, fresh designs. However, I was extremely disappointed to pull 5 single-color swatches out of a combined 8 hits, the other hits being autos.
