Us NASCAR fans have had a long wait since the last issue was released. Press Pass, which had the exclusive license since 2001, went out of business in January 2015, releasing their last set in November 2014 (calling it a 2015 set). Since then...we've had nothing.
Until Today! Panini acquired the NASCAR license in February, and the first product finally hit the store shelves on August 4th, 2016. I preordered a box and it arrived today, so I thought I would give you the contents of the very first pack. It wasn't my best pack of the box, but as the first I felt it should be remembered.
The hobby box gives you 20 packs of 4 cards each. Every pack has something non-base in it, usually a Prizm parallel.
Keep in mind, these Prizm cards are all chrome/finest style, so they don't scan all that well.
Here's a card back.
(not from this pack)
Overall, I'm pretty happy with the box I got, and with Panini's first effort. I hope it gets better from here, but I'll probably keep buying them anyway. I love NASCAR, and I love cards, so how could I not, really? There will be a full box review on Cardboard History in a matter of moments, also.
Thanks for reading
