What’s Buzz-worthy: A three-hit box where nothing is printed to more than 35 copies? No matter who you get, that feels like a win — and this box feels better than that with a couple of names of note. … All in all, this box feels like it’s a step closer to an ideal kind of hit-based product — an auto, an auto-Relic and a Relic — along with some base cards and a couple of parallels for a reasonable price. If more brands like this offered a little more safety in numbers — in any sport — there might be more people tearing in. … The design on the base cards is a tad simplistic but that can add appeal to some collectors. The skinny but sturdy stock with gloss on both sides also gives the feel of an advanced design that’s probably more on the cheaper side to actually make — also a plus because it helps keep costs down. The hits’ designs feels pretty familiar but doesn’t feel bad at all and generally this box (and product) feels like a winner.
