2012 Press Pass RedLine NASCAR Racing Box Break Recap And Review

Press Pass does racing right.  2012 Press Pass RedLine NASCAR Racing just might be their best release of the year, giving the future release of Showcase a run for its money.  From design, execution and delivery of value, RedLine has it all.

Press Pass RedLine falls into our premium cards category.  Each hobby tin contains  2- 10 card packs with one memorabilia and one autograph card in each pack.

Here are of the cards we pulled from our box.

Base set
 Dale Earnhardt, front and back, Kasey Kahne

 Paul Menard, Landon Cassill, Justin Allgaier

 Jimmie Johnson. Elliott Sadler, Greg Biffle

 Kyle Busch, Juan Pablo Montoya, AJ Allmendinger

Color Proof Base Parallel
Juan Pablo Montoya Blue #/50

  Dale Earnhardt Jr Performance Driven

 Jimmie Johnson Intensity, Kasey Kahne RPM

The Hits
 Carl Edwards Full Throttle Firesuit & Sheet Metal #/75, Travis Pastrana Firesuit #/75

 Jack Rousch Auto #/25, Trevor Bayne Sheet Metal Auto #/75

Overall Look
No question, cards that are bold enough to use the color black as its main component look fantastic. The red foil accents and selective use of gloss only on the photos and bottoms of the base cards pushes these cards to an even higher level.  The Performance Driven and RPM insert are sharp too.  The hits are gorgeous.  How Press Pass was able to prevent the dark edges of these cards from chipping when other card companies seem to always have that problem is impressive.

Quality And Variety Of Drivers
Press Pass always has a great checklist for NASCAR.  The addition of car owners has enhanced the checklists this year.  Racing fans will be very happy.

Do the Hits satisfy?
These are some of the nicest looking hits NASCAR hits and would do well side by side with some of the best hits in any sport. 

Will you keep coming back for more?
Most definitely.  This is a product that you will want to open time and time again.

5 out of 5

2012 Press Pass RedLine NASCAR Racing takes its place at the front of the pack this year and should hold to finish as the best Racing product of the year.
