2009 Press Pass Legends Racing Break & Review

Design: Photobucket

’09 Legends Racing has the same base set design as their popular football product.  Images of current drivers are in color and drivers of the past come in black and white.  Most of the images on the base cards are closeups of the actual drivers which is common for a product like this.  There isn’t anything overly complicated about the design.

Price: Photobucket

Hobby boxes sell for around $130.00 per box.  Considering you get six hits per box thats not too bad of a price.  I can easily think of some other products out on the market that yield fewer hits but cost a lot more.

Hit Quality: Photobucket

I was very impressed with the quality and quantity of hits that I pulled.  Below is a list of the relics and autographs that I received:

  • Brad Keselowski Prominent Pieces Firesuit/Pit Wall Banner/Glove #’ed/150
  • David Ragan Prominent Pieces Firesuit/Sheet Metal/Glove #’ed/50
  • John Force/Ashley Force Family Relics Shoes #’ed/25
  • Darrell Waltrip Red Ink Nickname autograph #’ed/50
  • Cale Yarborough Blue Ink autograph
  • Geoffrey Bodine Blue Ink autograph #’ed/100

Press Pass did an excellent job with the on-card autographs.  The signatures are big and bold and look really great.  It looks as if Press Pass forgot to put the serial number on the Dale Earnhardt parallels of the checklist.  Its always cool to pull an error.

Overall: Photobucket

Overall, I give this product 4.5 tires out of 5 (1=poor & 5=perfect).  This is the highest rating I’ve given a product, but this one really deserves it.  The card design is great, the price isn’t that bad, and your going to pull some great hits.  The only thing I would suggest is to improve the quality control a little more since the Earnhardt checklist parallels don’t contain the serial numbers.  Errors are part of The Hobby, and its not really a bad thing.  If anything, it should bring more attention to the product.  As of right now, this is the best racing product on the market.
