By Fascinating Cards, only 100 boxes made

252 base cards in the set.

All 63 parks are represented, 4 cards per park.

Over 200 rare National Park Quarter relic cards randomly inserted into packs.

Hundreds of rare chrome foil cards.

An average of 3 rare cards per box!

This looks like the kind of thing that we collectors can expect of a box under $100. It's not an entertainment-related issue so it doesn't have autographs nor sketches. It is more like a box from the 90's. The bonus here is that you get a free box of Congress cards if that's something you've thought about buying.

So you would need at least 63 packs to make a set. How many packs are in 100 boxes?

As for the parallel set.

Says 18 packs per box.

10 cards per pack.

So if you get 180 cards per box, you can't make a set of 252 cards.

You will need at least 2 boxes, at $ 79.00 each.

Maybe makes more sense to buy the base set for $ 99.

At least you get all 252 cards--you just don't get any of the chase cards.

Looks cool -- didn't see the deal for the free Congress box at first . . . tempting.

Thanks for posting.

That $79 doesn't include shipping, but if you're into nature/Americana cards, it might be a nice set (4 cards per park) but why make the set so big especially if you're printing only 100 boxes worth of cards?

Cards with members of Congress on them won't seem to be much of a bonus to many. If someone sends a nasty email to the company, are they going to send two boxes?

I think at this point it would be more fun to put together a set of the 1995 National Parks cards.

Yeah, and the National Park Service also put out its own set of cards, "Civil War to Civil Rights," but that was a 500 card set given out to kids (a few/several different cards per park) at the parks. NSU mentioned it within its article on the Fascinationg Cards set (December 2021-January 2022 issue).
