& I hate that Panini did a double RC Year with redemptions for 2011-12... my box days are limited until some better stuff comes out!! In the mean time, I'm chasing the sets I haven't complete yet, or trying to find some older products... anybody know where I can buy some Chronology packs at??

Like, for example, a product like Rookies & Stars, where you usually get something like two autos and two jerseys ... will they have like a Kyrie Irving patch auto like they would for Anthony Davis, etc. ...
It could go one of two ways — boxes that are twice as good or twice as bad (with double the amount of "spares" for rookies).
Like, when I was sorting some Hoops cards the last few days, I noticed how many rookies from last year averaged like 2-3 PPG ... would Panini actually bother making patch auto cards of them, or limit it to the few guys that played really well (Kyrie, Kemba, Brandon Knight, etc. ...)
