I think they are kind of blah. I like the crisp, clean card look, but there’s no *pop* to them. R&S has always had great eye-popping inserts, and I think some colored foil would have set these off great. Can’t wait for R&S to be released!
Appreciate the feedback. I think there may indeed be foil elements to these cards, but I won’t know for sure until I see the actual finished product tomorrow. Stay tuned for images tomorrow.
Nice i think its great that u guys did a insert set on what they did last year!!!You should do an insert set on Retired players and the greatest accomplishments or maybe today stars greatest accomplishments!!!
There ya go…. Ray Rice all day, every day!!!! Nice job with this set!
Hope these have foil. I like the design and layout. And of course like the Eli.
Any Cardinals going to be on there? How about Patrick Peterson and his punt return yardage record? Or Calais Campbell and his blocked field goals? Or just the Cardinals in general with 4 overtime wins?
Some guys are ‘in front’ of the silver design bar and some are ‘behind’ it. (Stafford, Newton). Interesting. Looks a lot like 2012 Prestige. Is there a GU parallel of each?
Totally loving the well thought-out sets. Set-builders rejoice, there’s reason to begin assembling for a reason other than, “just because!”
By your comments I sense a pack out is coming soon I hope. Will there be pictures of the rookie cards, these are my favorite every year. Please try to throw in the Tannehill if you can.
Thanks and great work.
Yes, sir. The packout is tomorrow morning. I should have tons of images to share at some point tomorrow. Can’t wait.
Good looking insert set, is this the full checklist or are there others? Also, any memorabilia or autograph variations? Thanks Tracy!
Looks great Tracy! Will there be autographed versions like the last few years? Please say yes because that Aaron Rodgers would look great in my A-Rodg collection!
Love the Pats cards!! Will have to pick up some of their autos this year!
I can’t wait to get my hands on that Jared Allen 22 sacks card.
