The Basics: The basic set will consist of 100 cards with a focus on young stars. Each pack will include four base cards and two parallels from a rainbow that includes Green (/TBD), Purple (/150), Magenta (/99), Red (/75), Orange (/50), Blue (/25) and Inception 1/1s alongside 1/1 printing plates. … Autographs will focus on rookies and “emerging stars” with Magenta, Red, Orange, Blue and Inception parallels with the same numbering as the base parallels. … Inception Silver Signings will be found one per case and these will have numbered Gold parallels (TBD) and 1/1 Gold Inscriptions. … Also in the mix will be numbered Legendary Debut autos with Orange (/10), Blue (/5) and 1/1 Inception versions. … On the auto Relic front, there are auto Relics with the same rainbow (numbering TBD) and jumbo patches that will have Orange, Blue and Inception parallels. … Among the uber-rare auto mem cards there are four sets to chase — logo patch books (/2), letter patch books (/2), laundry tag books (/2) and 1/1 logoman auto books.
