Card has arrived. Looks great!
Overall LookThe base card design has been hit or miss over the years, but this year, for the most part, I like the look. There is some nice bordering with etched foil accents but matte cropping of the photos feels a little funky in some places. I don’t know if its the sharp edging agains the patterned background but it feels a little off to my eye. This is a minor point from a design level as everything else about the base cards look great. The use of corresponding color on the backs of the parallels, base and hits, is a nice touch too. As usual, the hit cards are a familiar and solid design.
Quality and Variety of PlayersThe majority of the checklist is high quality and in line with the feel of Triple Threads from years past.
Do the Hits satisfy?There are plenty of collection making hits to be found here. Short of the monster hits, there are still plenty of solid player hits to be pulled.
Will you keep coming back for more?For some collectors, this is a special occasion box, one that they look forward to each year and for collectors with deep products, a case is an easy purchase. For those in the middle, this would be an excellent release for a multi box purchase.
