2011 Press Pass Stealth Box Break & Review

Design: Photobucket

Press Pass knows their stuff when it comes to designing a NASCAR product.  Makes sense since its their bread and butter.  One thing I like about their NASCAR products is the fact they take the time to make each product unique in its own way.  2011 Stealth has a military theme to it.  The base set is made up of 100 cards, and look like they are made out of metal.  When I look at them, I think I’m looking at a tank.

In the past, Press Pass has used generic looking autographs that could almost be placed within any of their products.  This year the autographed cards look like they came from Stealth, and don’t have a generic design.  They did a great job when it comes to the relic card design too.  Press Pass strategically placed the relics in the card where they look like they are part of the actual image.  Quite clever!

Price: Photobucket

A hobby box will run you about $93.00.

“Hit” Quality: Photobucket

Hobby boxes yield (2) “hits” per box on average – (1) autograph & (1) relic.  I pulled the following:


  • Kevin Harvick Press Pass Signings Auto #’ed/50
  • Jeff Gordon After Burner Sheet Metal/Firesuit #’ed/99
  • Kurt Busch “Shield” #’ed/99
  • No. 1 Bass Pro Shop Chevrolet “Black Ops” #’ed/25
  • Pennzoil Supersonic #4/9
  • Bass Pro Shop Supersonic #9/9
  • Carl Edwards In-Flight Report #5/9
  • Dale Earnhardt, Jr In-Flight Report #1/9
  • Kevin Harvick In-Flight Report #4/9
  • Brad Keselowski In-Flight Report #8/9
  • Flyover #2/6
  • US Air Force #US-AF
  • Lee Petty Class of 2011 NASCAR Hall of Fame #125
Overall: Photobucket
Overall, I give 2011 Press Pass Stealth 4 US flags out of 5 (1=poor & 5=perfect).  I wouldn’t mind seeing another “hit”, but they make up for it in the design.  Integrating the relics into the picture adds a nice touch.

Preview: 2011 Press Pass Stealth

This year’s Stealth will have a military theme to it.  Each box will yield (1) relic and (1) autograph.  Collectors can look for it in May.





This looks really cool!  I’ve always been a fan of integrating the relics into the actual photo.


2010 Stealth Preview

This June, Press Pass plans to release another version of its Stealth Racing.  Collectors can look for (1) autograph and (1) race-used sheet metal card per hobby box.  Obviously this year Danica Patrick is the driver people are looking for.  When her new autographs are released, I wonder how it will affect the price of her very popular 2006 Allen & Ginter autograph?

A few days ago they released 2010 Draft Pick Football.  Ever since August I’ve received a steady flow on new products from Press Pass, but this hasn’t arrived yet.  If I’m lucky to get a box, get ready for another contest!!!



’09 Stealth Box Break Review


I really like the design of this year’s Press Pass Stealth set.  Each card has a chrome finish which looks cool.  The various parts to the 90-card set keep it interesting while breaking the 24 packs.  Some of the refractors can be hard to locate if you don’t inspect the back of each card.  I didn’t realize that one of the Ambrose rookies I pulled was serial numbered to 25 copies until I went to make the video.  Press Pass also places the serial numbers at different spots on the reverse side of the card.  The chrome design is very nice and I think the rookie cards from Stealth are my favorite so far.

Price: Photobucket

Boxes of ’09 Stealth can be found for $80.00 – $95.00.  Your going to need a little luck if your hoping to pull a card worth that much.  For 24 packs and a chance to pull some valuable cards, its not that most outrageous price in the world.

Hit Quality: Photobucket

You are suppose to receive 2 hits per hobby box – 1 autograph & 1 relic.  For most collectors, your relic will be a Race-Used Sheet Metal card since they fall 1:24 packs.  Your autograph won’t always be serial numbered, but I got lucky and pulled one numbered to 45 copies.  I like the fact you can pull other numbered inserts.  The Marcos Ambrose rookie #’ed/25 is a nice hit, and I think collectors value the rookies from Stealth a little more based on the secondary market prices.

Overall: Photobucket

Overall I give 2009 Press Pass Stealth 3 tires out of 5 (1=poor & 5=perfect).  The sheet metal cards look really cool, especially the ones that are multi-colored.  You get a nice combination of hits and other serial numbered cards.  I would like to see perhaps one more relic or autograph per box.  I like the rookies from this product better than other boxes I’ve opened.

Press Pass Comes Through

A few minutes ago the UPS man dropped off a package from Press Pas, Inc.  Inside there were 3 boxes for me to break and review: ’09 Stealth, ’09 Premium, and ’09 Press Pass Series 2.  Starting tomorrow I’ll be breaking one each day and plan to use some of the stuff for a contest(s).
