User Reviews

  1. Looks like a good ratio of inserts cards to base cards from a hobby box. 35 total inserts & 45 base cards isn’t too bad. Very nice to see there will be a minimum of 20 total RC’s out of 80 cards per box as well.

    That’s 1 rookie every 4 cards pulled. Another solid ratio as well. I’ve always loved the looks of the Optic Cards but they don’t seem to change things up much in terms of look & style or I would give these a 5* rating.
