2013 Press Pass FanFare Racing Box Break & Review

Design:  photo 4ckflag.jpg

Its sparkly!  The 100-card base set has a starburst design to it and actually looks quite decent.  I think its way better than what they made last year.  Most of the autographs and relics have a similar design.

Of all the cards in 2013 FanFare Racing, my personal favorite are the Signature Rides autographs.  I think they came out nice and designing them horizontally was the right way to go.  They’ve got that clean background with a faded starburst right behind the boldly colored car.  I enjoy the look of the die-cut autographs too.

Boxes are currently selling for $110.00.

Overall:  photo 4ckflag.jpg

Overall, I give 2013 FanFare Racing 4 checkered flags out of 5 (1=poor & 5=perfect).  Lots of well designed cards for that NASCAR fan looking for a quite thrill.  I heard that Press Pass is bringing back Five Star Racing sometime this year.  Really looking forward to seeing that.
