Even with the 2011 Sprint Cup going to Tony Stewart a short time ago. we are ready to bring on the 2012 racing season. To hold us over until then we have 2012 Press Pass Racing NASCAR Trading Cards and as usual, it is a great set of cards.

Reviewing the design of Press Pass cards is a little like being a weatherman in Southern California where it is Sunny, in the 70’s all year round. Press Pass just seems to get design right time after time. From the base set to the insert, it all looks good.
Quality and Variety of Drivers and Subsets
All the drivers you could want from the Sprint Cup, Nationwide and Truck series are here. Inserts of the top drivers in the sport are really nice too. Add to that an Autograph roster that is limited to NASCAR Sprint Cup Series drivers and you couldn’t really ask for more.
Do the hits hold up?
The hits here are great, especially for a trading card set. The tire relic we pulled had plenty of detail.
Will you want to collect them all?
Sure and the really adventurous will want to create a master set with all the inserts too.

2012 Press Pass Racing NASCAR Trading Cards gets the 2012 racing card collecting season off to another great start.
