There will be Tools of the Trade cards with prime versions limited to 25 as well as jumbo memorabilia cards with prime parallels for promising draft prospects as well as former stars. Silhouettes will be back with Black Gold versions — both bats and patches — while the standard Silhouettes also will have prime versions. There also will be black, blue, red and green autos, too. … Boxes will once again carry a suggested retail price of $75 ($15 per pack).
