Hello all. In honor of opening night of the NFL football season I have the first football pack here on the Pack Rip Cafe to feature today. I did one of the 2000 Topps Gallery Baseball back in early August and was very pleased with them so when I saw the football version in the Vend-O-Pack machine I had to grab one.

Total Cards: 6
Rookie Cards: 1
Sub Sets: 1 (Apprentices)
Keepers for Me: 1 (Coles)
Front Design: 8 out of 10 Great pictures, mostly on field action shots, nice design, textured borders like artwork, no team logo.
Back Design: 8 out of 10 Nice design, team logo, good player info, gallery notes has interesting player facts, another different factoid related to the picture on front, only 1999 stats (broken down by each month).
Player Selection: 8 out of 10 Very good, all stars on their teams, 1 HOFer.
FINAL OVERALL RATING: Extra Point (or a Single in baseball terms) A Jets rookie and great looking cards in general make this pack a hit for me. I am very impressed with this product as I hadn't seen this particular year before just like the baseball I ripped a while back.
Thanks for Reading!
