I liked the way R&S added depth to their checklist by including players that were not in their base set into their insert sets. However I did not like the fact they didn't have normal base RC's of the top draft pics.
Scale from 1-5. 1 = worst, 2 = bad, 3 = below average, 4 = average, 5 = good
Bowman - Worst
Prestige - Wonderful
Inception - Bad
Score - Average
Topps - Good
Elite - Bad
Finest - Bad
Rookies & Stars - Below Average
Platinum - Average
Prominence - Below Average
Momentum - Below Average
Prime - Could care less

It all looks the same. I have 2 sets I've picked up and am working on, Prestige Rookie Draft Jersey autos and the Elite Inscriptions autos. The latter are on card and seem to grade well.
I think market saturation has killed interest in a lot of this stuff. Unique stuff, however, still reigns.

I dont really buy college stuff so Upper Deck is irrelevant. Decent looking products but the college unis just dont do it for me. (Nor do Press Pass, SAGE, Leaf)
Didnt know about the move to sticker autos but you know, if it means less redemption cards, I'm all for it. I have 8 outstandiing redemption cards from Panini, one from a year ago. That is completely unacceptable. the 2 i got from Topps in 2011 i received very quickly. Panini really needs to fix that.
i am looking forward to Certified nd maybe even Topps Strata.
Oh and to echo sentiments here - PANINI: BRING BACK CLASSICS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
