Prelim report...
Picked up one blaster box.

8 packs, 6 cards each
1 mini per pack
0 relics/autos (so far) Roll Eyes

Early impressions:
Base set of 350 cards total. Short prints #300 to #350.
Most the cards that are of non-sport interest are mini's much like 2010 & 2011. For example: People of the Bible, Man's Best Friend, etc.
Set design appears to be repetitive. Wrappers and box design has a nostalic feel to it.

Overall first impression grade C-.

Pics below. Hope to post more. Big Grin

I got some loose packs and a cabinet card. The oversize cabinet card has Famous Rollercoasters - RC-4 The Wild One at Prince George's County, Maryland on it. So far, not any non-sports subjects among my base cards, but did get a World's Tallest Buildings card, a Historical Turning Point card,and Murder in Willard Cove card. No non-sport mini's yet.

Don't like the design much this time, and may just look for singles of the NS stuff.
