NASCAR 2008 Press Pass VIP Retail

    Hello all. Today the Pack Rip Cafe offers up it's first foray into a pack of racing cards. I picked up 5 packs of assorted racing cards from a clearance sale and decided to show this one. I usually pick a pack, open it,  take pictures regardless of the contents and post the pack here. This time I opened all five and picked one to show off. You will see why I picked this one. (This pack was the last one I opened)
2008 Nascar Press Pass VIP Retail

#58 AJ Allmendinger (Red Bull #84)

    AJ is an up and comer on the Nascar circut who should continue to make some noise in the 2011 season. A nice shot of him in victory lane after winning the All-Star race qualifier.
#40 Chip Ganassi (Owner)
    Ganassi has had many championships in open wheel divisions and 2 Indy 500 wins by cars he has owned. Now he is trying to continue that success in Nascar.

#DB-MK Double Burner Matt Kenseth (Dewalt #17)
Race Used Fire Suit and Glove sn'd 071/100

    Sweet!  A dual hit. While the picture doesn't show it that well, the glove swatch shows some real wear from use on the wheel of Matt Kenseth's Dewalt Tools Ford. I love this card, its my first firesuit relic in my limited Nascar collection. These packs should have 4 cards but I guess the hit drops it down to 3.

The backs.

Total Cards:
Teams Represented: 3
Rookie Cards:
Sub Sets:
 1 (Dual Relic) 
1 (Dual Relic)
Keepers for Me:
 1 (Dual Relic) The others are up for grabs. No trade needed, just ask.

Front Design: 8 out of 10 Good pictures, A small sampling but I like what I see. 
Back Design:
 6 out of 10 Nice design, good factoid about the driver/owner, good pictures, no career stats is a bummer.
Player Selection: 7 out of 10 Good

FINAL OVERALL RATING: A Win by 1 car length  (Solo Home Run). Two great and different types of relics along with two other good cards give this pack a win. I may have to go back and get some more of these.

Thanks for Reading!
