You know, if life were simple, I'd have posted this box weeks ago. But, it is not, so here we are.
I might as well post these three boxes of FOOTBALL CARDS, because tomorrow is the first Football Sunday of the year (and before you ask, yeah, I will likely be doing predictions again this year).
So yeah...Panini Hot Rookies
This box was one that I'd never really heard of, or at least the product. I didn't really know what to expect from a product like this, except, of course, hot rookies. However, my mystery contact still treaded on, giving me the box anyway.
Here are the only base cards that I really care about, and believe me when I say there's a lot more than these. It's nice to see Darren Sproles in there as an Eagle.
OVERALL: I wanted to like this box. I really did. However, it just felt really mailed in. The base set was basically just Panini 2014, the autos are stickers, the rookies are just hatless college photos, and there are numbered parallels of undrafted players. It was kind of effortless, which is very surprising for a Panini set. I'm a huge Panini supporter, but I wasn't very pleased with this box.
RATING: C-. Intriguing idea, disappointing execution.
So, that's one box down, and already I got a rookie-centric box, one that really didn't interest me because I'm not a rookie-centric collector. So I really hope my mystery contact keeps that in mind before giving me my next box of product.
COMING TOMORROW- A Box of 2014 Topps Bowman Football. I can't win, can I?
