    I can’t wait for this product to come out this year. It was SPECTACULAR last year. There were very few bad boxes and the collation was perfect. I am glad they are adding more patch cards but I hope the price and quality of the product still stay the same.

    These look spectacular just like the football ones. Hoping to have a chance to bust some of it and see it first hand. Whether it be the hockey or the football. I prefer the football but THis product just looks amazing on here and probably much more amazing in person no matter the sport.

    The Crown diecuts always look great. The design of the scratching the surface looks awesome as well. Very well done overall product.

    I really liked the design and themes of this product last year, and it looks great again. I hope there is a Blackhawk in the Rookie Silhouettes set, but I wouldn’t be surprised to not see one again this year.

    These cards look awesome. This product is going to be just as much of a hit as it was last year. Kudos on the great work!

    Wish we could see more patch/auto cards, though. Your patches are usually quite appealing, but I would love to see some autograph on those cards once in a while and not reserve that just for rookie cards.

    Oh, your preview reads “four-card box” when it should say “four-pack box”.
