2015 Press Pass Cup Chase Box Break & Review

Design:  photo 35hot.jpg

When it comes to design, racing fans haven’t seen that much innovation for awhile.  I doubt we will.  Press Pass has zero competition when it comes to racing so why spend the money to include shadow boxes, sketches, or art/relics.  This product is decently designed, but nothing really jumps out as far as being new.  If I had to pick, my favorite cards from this product would have to be the Pit Road Pieces and booklets.

Price:  photo 3hot.jpg

Boxes are currently selling for $160.00.  Its one of their more expensive brands.

“Hit” Quality:  photo 4hot.jpg

When it comes to configuration, this type is my favorite.  There are only five packs per box with a “hit” inside each pack.  I’m not a fan of having a lot of base cards.

I pulled the following:

Auto/Relic

  • Joey Logano Pit Road Pieces Sheet Metal/Firesuit/Glove Auto #’ed/25
  • Paul Menard Signature Series Firesuit Auto #’ed/10

Overall:  photo 35hot.jpg

Overall, I give 2015 Press Pass Cup Chase 3.5 hot dogs out of 5 (1=poor & 5=perfect).  This is the first time in years that Press Pass hasn’t released Legends Racing.  That was always one of my favorite products and I had a lot of luck with it.  Cup Chase looks nice, but doesn’t offer much of anything new.
