2011 Element Box Break & Review

Design: Photobucket

I’m glad to see Press Pass decided to stick with recycled cardboard for this product.  It sure beats the same old glossy stuff we see with all the other products.  Its cool to hold a card up to the light and see the actual grain.  The “Flashback” design looks good, but I enjoyed last year’s Element design better.  The “Tales from the Track” inserts show off some great photography and contain fun NASCAR history.  They are entertaining to read.

Price: Photobucket

A hobby box will cost about $76.00.

“Hit” Quality: Photobucket

Collectors can look for (2) “hits” per box – (1) autograph & (1) memorabilia.  I received the following “hits”:

  • Kurt Busch “Flagship Performers” Race-Used White Flag #’ed/50
  • Kevin Conway Cyan Press Plate Autograph #’ed 1/1

Each box comes with a Mystery Pack.  Inside mine I pulled a No. 99 Roush Fenway Racing Ford black border parallel #’ed/35.

Overall: Photobucket

Overall, I give 2011 Element 3.5 tires out of 5 (1=poor & 5=perfect).  I like the feel of the cards and the “hits” I pulled were nice.  Give it a shot racing fans!
