2011 Ringside Boxing – Round Two Box Break & Review

Design: Photobucket

This product has thick, high-quality base cards.  If a product has to have a few base cards in it, that’s the way I like to see it carried through.  The Turkey Red cards look absolutely beautiful with their painted theme and ornate picture frame boarder.

While closely examining each card, I noticed something in the design that you rarely see on a card today.  On the bottom of the Turkey Red cards you see the Mecca Cigarettes trademark.

Bringing back old sets from the past such as Turkey Red isn’t something new to collectors.  You just rarely see the word “cigarettes” on cards today.  Usually they would keep the design and stay away from anything tobacco related.  Last year’s Ringside Boxing – Round One featured the same trademark on the back.  I guess they think it helps connect these newer cards to the vintage ones.

Price: Photobucket

Boxes are currently selling for $100.00.

“Hit” Quality: Photobucket

Each box contains (1) autograph, (1) memorabilia, (3) base cards, and (3) Mecca Turkey Red inserts.  My box yielded the following:

Autographs

  •  Yuri Foreman Silver Version
Memorabilia
  • Yuri Foreman Ringside Boxing Round 2 Silver Version Fight-Worn Trunks
Base
  • Frank Bruno Ringside Boxing Round 2 #105
  • Paulie Malignaggi In My Corner #172
  • Mosely vs Wright Tale of the Tape #155
Mecca Turkey Red Inserts
  • Tomasz Adamek #109
  • Roberto Duran #137
  • Frank Bruno #97
Overall: Photobucket
Overall, I give 2011 Ringside Boxing – Round 2 3 boxing gloves out of 5 (1=poor & 5=perfect).  If your a boxing fan or a collector of Turkey Red cards, I think you’d enjoy it.  All of the autographs are on-card as well.
