The rookies will be found with on-card autos. There will be Massive Materials tag and NFL Shield parallels atop the standard cards, while NFL Shields also will be found in the Sizable Signatures set. … Gold Strike autos will also be on-card as will Gold Records. … Metal team logo cards appear to be limited to just 50 copies with parallels as rare as one copy. … Boxes carry a suggested retail price of $250.
