2012 Press Pass Ignite Racing Box Break & Review

Design: Photobucket

2012 Ignite is a new brand in Press Pass’s racing lineup.  One thing that I really notice is the use dark backgrounds which is then followed by bright colorful images of the drivers and their cars.  It must be a NASCAR thing, but many racing autographs have the team’s COA hologram right over a larger portion of the driver’s signature.  I’ve seen this done with a lot of racing products.  It must be some rule that they need to have the COA placed there.

Price: Photobucket

Boxes are currently selling for $87.00.

“Hit” Quality: Photobucket

Every (20) pack box contains (2) “hits” – (1) autographed relic & (1) relic.  You would think by having (20) packs in a box there would be more “hits”, but this is the first time Press Pass has issued a product that has this many packs and guarantees you to pull an autographed relic.  I pulled the following:

Auto/Relic

  • Jeff Gordon Ignite Auto/Race-Used Firesuit
Relic
  • Clint Bowyer Ignite Race-Used Firesuit #’ed/99
Parallel
  • Danica Patrick Black and White Red Parallel #’ed/50
Inserts
  • Dale Earnhardt, Jr Steel Horses #1
  • Kasey Kahne Steel Horses #8
  • Ryan Newman Profile #1
  • Trevor Bayne Profile #5
  • Brad Keselowski Limelight #6
  • Clint Bowyer Limelight #4
  • Richie Evans 2012 NASCAR Hall of Fame #145
Rookies
  • Danica Patrick #30 – Yes, she is new to the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, but does she really need more rookie cards?  She has so many.  Plus I pulled another base card of her that doesn’t contain the rookie card logo.  It looks just like the one with the logo.  Its a total mind blower!  Then again, you can’t complain about too many Danica Patrick cards.
  • Josh Wise #36
Overall: Photobucket
Overall, I give 2012 Press Pass Ignite Racing and average 3 fireballs out of 5 (1=poor & 5=perfect).  I like the color boldness that the black backgrounds allow.  Press Pass also included redemptions for autographed jumbo banner size cards.  Unlike Press Pass’s redemptions of the past, that could easily be faked using a filler card and a label maker, this time they included a hologram.  Its at least a little better.  These banner redemptions can only be found in Ignite Power Packs which should be available at your local shop.
