The base R&S design this year seems much cleaner than in years past, and the foil of the Longevity really adds to it. That being said, I wasn't expecting much as far as the hits--did get an auto #/99 and a patch #/49, so I think that's a win. And for the price? Not bad.

Last year I got one box which had the 1/1 Ryan Williams, a /50 jumbo patch of someone (Greg Little maybe) and a Denarius Moore autograph to 175. So like any product there are going to be great boxes.
Its just such a bummer that they have such a good looking product where you are likely only getting unnumbered rookie premiere material items.
I also have to wonder if the concerns over fake "game used" memorabilia are why were are seeing fewer "game used" cards of veterans in a product like this.
I'm definitely going to get more boxes of it because the cards look awesome, but it seems a good example of how card companies are delivering less value.

Good players? Zach Brown auto and Jarius Wright patch. Meh.

I was finally glad to see them ditch the Signed Cloth RC patch and go with the Jersey Auto..
Only complaint I have this year is that it seems to be way more Rookies and less Stars than in years past..
