The set is great for (at least) three reasons.
1) The set is 100% retro players.
2) There is 1 on-card auto in every 9 packs.
3) The non-auto'd cards are gorgeous and make for great TTM/In Person autographs. I have sent and received many cards from this set. In fact, at some point this week I'm going to put all of my autographed (certified, TTM, IP) cards from this set on my blog.
