Rookie Cards:
1 (Smith)
Sub Sets: 4 (Prospects, Postseason, All-Star, and Home Run Derby)
Keepers for Me:
 0 (All are available)

Front Design: 8 out of 10 Good pictures (some posed and some action), team colors represented, good use of foil.
Back Design:
 8 out of 10 Nice design, team logo on some cards, full career stats, good layout.
Player Selection:
 6.5 out of 10
Good, decent prospects and all-stars.

FINAL OVERALL RATING: Fly Out to center field. Some good players and nice design are not enough to over come no keepers or true superstars.

Check out the other pack over on A Pack To Be Named Later, I think it might be better.

Thanks for Reading!

  1. I love this set. One of the first things that I did when I started collecting again was to pick up a jumbo box of this stuff. There are some great rookies in there and a bunch of fun cards. Sure, they won't be the most valuable cards out there, but it was a really fun box break to pull rookies of Ellsbury, Bruce, Braun and others all in the same box.
