What’s Buzz-worthy: Every 12-pack box of this one includes two cut autograph cards — something we have seen plenty of already in advance of this one’s arrival — and that’s a big reason why this collector opted to rip a box. This one included a Rookie Cuts card but that’s not one of the two cuts in the case. The biggest names among the rookie crop weren’t found here but this isn’t a box that left me feeling like it was a dud. In fact, this feels like a pretty solid collector product with a full-bleed base set that’s all about showcasing the photography. Card backs have plenty to say with stats from last season and for a career but not every year. The hits included a Hall of Famer — a card with admittedly disappointing edges — and a guy who could be an emerging player soon (Kupp has two touchdowns in his first four games). You don’t get a lot of inserts in these boxes but there’s enough numbering here to help that value-wise. This one really feels like a solid release that, if you land the right name or a cut auto, delivers well if you’re a collector or someone ripping to flip.

Holy Hell! They really mailed this one in. Did they get this design done on fiverr? If you ever needed proof that they think all football collectors are morons who just want ink and what essentially amounts to fake game used patches, here it is. This legitimately looks like it was designed in Microsoft Powerpoint.
