I still like this product and can’t wait for my box to come in! I do wish you guys would do a little bit of research before you say stupid things during the break. Carmichael has been racing in NASCAR for quite a while now. Trout was thinking of Travis Pastrana. HE was supposed to make his Nationwide Series debut, but got injured during the Summer X-Games. He became a part-owner with Michael Waltrip Racing and was going to race a car for them at Lucas Oil Raceway that weekend. After shattering his ankle the night before the race, he could not possibly try to make it to that race. Anyway, the cards still look great and I can’t wait any more. The addition of the bonus ‘pack’ is the only reason that I am not PO’d that it didn’t come out today.

Hey if your looking to get rid of the Johanna Long cards you can send them this way. I live in Pensacola and was there when she won snowball derby. Also it was travis pastana that was hurt at xgames and missed nationwide start

You’re right…I was thinking of Pastrana. Not sure why have have Carmichael and Pastrana confused…motocross and x-games maybe? Hey even Michael Jordan missed a shot every now and then.

For my foolishness, let’s give away the Carmichael and the Long autos.

We’ll draw two winners from those who comment by 5 pm, Friday August 26.

I have been looking foward to this release since first annouced. I even pre ordered my box which i normally only do for the legends release. I love how they incorporated the legends rookies trucks everything into one product. Its like one of those claw machines you do not know what your going to get.

Now for the cale vs david pearson vote, There is no comparing the two. Pearson is much better. He had the same amount of championships. rookie of the year. second in wins way more poles. The only thing he didnt do was win three consectutive which he would have done if he had run more of the season in 67. I might be a little bias since I did get in the BSCM as david pearson super collector lol

Tim the only real mistake you made was not saying I only screwed up the names to see how many more comments I would receive than normal.

I would love either one of the 2 autographs you guys are giving away. The product looks great. I like how they are bring back all 3 of Nascars divisions into the product. Big deal about messing up the name. Noone is perfect. We all knew who you were talking about, that is all that really matters right??

Thanks for all you guys do for our hobby!

Nice looking cards overall. Definitely like the diecut cards. It’s also nice to have some autos and race-used of some new people.

Nice break! Just a note, Carmichael didn’t just do motocross racing, he also won two step up gold medals at the X Games.

Nice stuff. Press Pass never disappoints with their product. I would love to have the RC (Ricky Carmichael) autograph.

The product looks fantastic – best looking base set of the year IMHO. The autos and memorabilia aren’t too shabby either. Will people make it rich on this product? Probably not – but it gives exposure to a lot of younger, lower tiered drivers the likes of which we have not seen since I dare say the days of Maxx!

Tim, I enjoy your writing but the way you handle cards makes me nuts. I would never buy a card that you opened. Finger prints go to the FBI not on a sports card. The way you rubbed the r/u firesuit depositing your finger oils and anything else you touched since you last washed your hands is intolerable and an insult to the industry. Give it some thought, find your shame and send me a SEALED box of Fanfare and I will show you the proper way to open (tearing the pack is wrong) and handle sports cards. Keep Grinnin, Dave

I really like the product. It’s kind of a bargain for what your getting (9 hits per box).
