Not stickers, actual cards. I wasn't going to do it... I had resisted it the last time I was there... but someone else bought a box and broke it right then and there. After seeing all those cards, I was hooked.
The details - 36 packs per box. 6 cards per pack. 4 base cards and 2 sp's. Now the sp's come in four different forms. The first is a shiny foilboard team logo found one per pack. The sixth card of the pack could be one of three varieties, all featuring star players. A shiny foilboard version, a glitzy, 3D relief style card, or a clear acetate card.
Unfortunately, my scanner does not do any of these cards justice. they are amazing looking cards.
Card #1 - The Header card
What it's all about....
one of the foilboard logo cards. There are 32 different ones of these....
The regular base cards, 100 of these...
Stadium cards... 10 different to choose from.
here is one of the shiny foilboard player cards....
and a clear acetate card, that really did not scan well.... it also happens to be that round headed boy.
and finally, the bumpy, foily, glitzy player cards. These are awesome in person, each card matching the player's team colours.
I'm really happy with the design and quality of the cards. What I am not happy with is collation. Absolutely horrible. How did I do out of one box?
Base Cards - 4 per pack - 71/100 with 70 duplicates. Yes. 70.
Foilboard team logos - one per pack - 21/32 with 5 duplicates.
Foilboard Player cards - one per 3 1/2 packs - 7/25 with 3 duplicates. How hard would it be to make all 10 different????
Acetate Player cards - one per 2 packs - 18/48 - NO duplicates. thank you
Glitzy metallically shiny bumpy player cards - 15/25 with NO duplicates.
I have to find someone to trade with.... it'll be impossible to put together by busting packs.
Final score - 4/5
Amazing cards, but Panini screwed the pooch by not having someone with at least a Grade 12 education write them a basic algorithm to give them proper collation.
They did it on purpose. In which case they're douchebags.
