Press Pass 2010 Racing Box Break & Review

Press Pass sent over a box of their new 2010 Racing product for me to break and review.  This is their flagship racing product which can appeal to both set collectors and individuals looking for nice hits they can ad to their collection.  Check out what I pulled and my product review.

Don’t forget to enter the ’09 Fusion Contest that ends this Friday for a chance to win a Jimmie Johnson Race-Used Firesuit relic #’ed/65 + more!!!

Design: Photobucket

Press Pass’s flagship racing product continues to have great photos.  A majority of the base set reminds me of the old Stadium Club cards from the 90’s.  Probably my favorite part of the base set are the Winning Numbers cards, which feature a closeup image of each driver’s car number.  The 50-card By The Numbers die cut set and Tradin’-Paint inserts are nicely designed as well.  The only drawback I saw was on my autographed card.  Some drivers will have an Earnhardt, Jr hologram placed over a portion of the on-card signature.  I’m not sure why the hologram has to go over part of the signature.  You can see through it, but why not place it to the side?  I find it ironic that collectors can’t get away from stickers, even when the autograph is on-card 🙂

Price: Photobucket

Hobby boxes are selling for around $72.00 which seems about right for this type of product.  Its nothing too outrageous.

Hit Quality: Photobucket

Usually I wouldn’t give a product that only guarantees one memorabilia card per box this high of a rating, but Press Pass has some really unique relics this time around.  Along with autographs of top drivers, they have included pieces of sheet metal used from alternate paint schemes you normally don’t see your favorite drivers in.  I pulled the following hits:

  • Brad Keselowski autograph
  • Juan Pablo Montoya Tradin’-Paint Race-Used Sheet Metal #’ed/42
  • Joey Logano parallel #’ed/100
  • Red Farmer parallel #’ed/100
  • MPH parallel #’ed/100

Overall: Photobucket

Overall, I give this product 4 paint buckets out of 5 (1=poor & 5=perfect).  The 129-card base set features great photography and there are plenty of inserts to collect.  I like how Press Pass created cards emphasizing the different paint schemes for each of the drivers.  The serial numbers are much easier to read on this product versus some of their others.  Putting the authentication sticker over some of the on-card autographs seems weird.  Why not just place it to the side or on the back?  It probably has something to do with the individual drivers, because not all of the autographs have them.
