No matter what the sport, the bar has been set by Press Pass. 2013 Press Pass Legends Racing once again delivers a set of cards worthy of the Legends of Racing, providing a history lesson in a box. As usual, Legends finishes out a strong year of Racing/NASCAR with an amazing set of cards.
We classify 2013 Press Pass Legends Racing as premium cards. Each hobby box contains 3 mini boxes. Each mini box contains 6 – 5 card packs with one Autograph card and one Race-Used memorabilia card for a total of 6 hits per hobby box.
To change things up, instead of showing you highlights of a master hobby box, we will show you the entire contents of one mini box.

Dave Marcis Base Auto Redemption
This is a very different look for the Legends base cards along with a separation between previous Legends and modern day drivers. A bit of the regal feel is missing from the overall look that was present in previous releases but the photography selection is still fantastic. Tribute cards now take the place of full foil inserts making the set a little more cohesive. Signature Style inserts and Hit cards look great.
Quality and Variety of Drivers.
As usual this is an amazing checklist with proven drivers and recognizable names from all eras. By crossing all types of racing, this appeals to a wide range of collectors and fans.
Do the Hits satisfy?
The hits are exceptionally strong from a variety and rarity standpoint. There are names here that you would be hard pressed to find anywhere else. Hit after hit delivers.
Will you keep coming back for more?
For racing buffs fan with a full understanding of the rich heritage of the sport this release merits buying as many boxes of Legends as your budget will allow.
