Wow, I really like the look of this product. It doesn’t even look like a press pass product. The design is nice and clean, the autos are on card, and they look like cards that I would want to have in my collection. Big props to Press Pass for stepping their game up for this release, I’m really impressed.
Very nice looking product.. Great use of the foil and love the on card autos. Thanks for sharing the product and looking forward to getting a box.- Adam
I like those cards! Press pass is always crisp and clean, always love the on card autos. Good Luck!
PressPass products in general always seem very unique and are very catchy. The FanFare cards look VERY good, and I give credit to the on card autographs and quality of the product. The QR code is cute, and is meant to get ahead of the market. Andrew Luck will be really good, yet he’ll need a couple of years to adapt. I honest believe Robert Griffin will be an automatic Michael Vick.
*Crosses My Fingers*
Nice product. I like that there is no non-auto base set as they tend to just be space wasters. The on-card autos on the foil look very nice.
I love the new look of the foil on the cards and always love the on card autographs. always liked press pass and this new fanfare is rally great.
Very nice, clean design. Not too cluttered or overdone. Also great use of foil, the autographs really pop off the cards. i would buy it.
i like the on card autos and the chrome look to it but i wish i could buy it.
This is, in my opinion, the best “looking” product Press Pass has ever released. The cards are absolutely beautiful. If I am to be picky, all they need is some jersey inserts in addition to the autographs. The SRP is not bad either. The glossy finish makes the cards look richer. This product may be their most successful product ever.
I always love press pass. Like to get what I consider true rookies of the players before they are associated with any team. This years cards really look great with that foil. I would love to have the Luck card in my collection. Only wish the Skins could have drafted him.
I like the look of the cards, but I hate to think that it’s just a reply to Leaf minus the top loaders. That being said, being able to pull a Luck auto is a solid option.
Fanfare in my opinion is a very clean and crisp product. I love the fact that all the autographs are on card and very clean. The odds seem really good for pulling a big name player, which is very good for getting your money back. Overall this
Looks like a very nice product! Gotta love the on card autos. Usually don’t like products that don’t have team logos etc. but they made up for it with the overall look of the cards!
Fanfare is a very clean and crisp product.The autographs are all an card which is a very big plus to an already awesome card design. I think your odds of pulling a big big name player are defintely in your favor, which really helps you earn your money back.In my opinion this is a great product especially if you are looking to find on card autographs of guys like Andrew Luck.
Love the foil, I wish they could use the college logos, but still great on card autos, hopefully we will see this type of card in other products.
Very impressive! I’m liking it. So can I have the A.luck?
these look so nice love on card autos will be busting a few of these and just autos sweet.
Pretty nice from press pass. Whats nice is the on card auto press pass does and not those cheap stickers like sage.
Great looking product! Love the on-card autos.
these cards have really mashed the original press pass autos and design, with new style foil technology. This is way above the leaf products, and i would give this an A, and im not a huge press pass fan before seeing this. very well done
The hobby would be much, much better if all the card companies committed to on-card autographs the way Press Pass does. There is just no comparison to their consistency. Plus the inscription and nickname variations made possible by signing on-card rather than a sticker are awesome!
I really like the on card auto’s and price point but the airbrushing just doesn’t due it for me.
Usually not my kind of product (well out of my price range I must say), but the foil board stock looks really nice. Sticker autos never really bother me, but all of them being on card is a cool little bonus. The QR codes are innovative and great for being on the packaging, but I fear the day they start showing up on the backs of cards themselves…
I have been a fan of the press pass product for some time now, but I feel like they really stepped it up with the fan fare series. With the foil look and the upright formation as opposed to the sideways of the regular press pass autos of 2012. Although I never have enough money to buy hobby boxes, I can usually save up to get a card here or there. With all that said, I am looking forward to getting my hands on some of this product.
Very clean. I like the foil board. Really brings out the autos.
The cards look good. The on card auto’s are sweet, and the Andrew Luck card looks great. To bad this product is a little rich for my spending blood for the time being.
This product looks amazing! I look forward to seeing what Andrew Luck does for the Colts next year. I like the use of the foil and the autographs look really good.
Wow I am impressed with Press Pass. They really took this product to the “NEXT LEVEL” That Andrew Luck auto is pretty sweet. I will most likely buy a pack. Thanks for the sneak peak.
Shinny is all I can say.. Love that Luck is only in Press Pass, so you definitely can’t go wrong with this…
Always love the on-card autos from Press Pass. That Luck is a beauty, and the rest are sharp-looking as well. Fanfare kind of looks like a cross between regular Press Pass and Leaf Metal, but thats ok. Would love one of those Wilsons too!
very nice looking cards. 5 auto’s per pack for 100 bucks, not bad at all. i agree the foil gives the auto’s a great detail to the cards. andrew luck auto would look great in my collection. hint hint. over all ive always liked press pass cards, and with on card auto’s instead of stickers, this product is gonna be great for auto collectors. id think the red auto’s would be a little more rare to get and that red ink shines on the foil back grounds. ill be waiting for my luck card. hint hint. as always, another fine editoin of box busters.
Very nice high end release from Press Pass. On card autos look great. Might have to add this to my purchase list.
Awesome cards! They look very sweet. Very nice chrome look and the on-card autos are sick. Wish I could afford a box.
simple the best design i ever saw for a non licensed set. wow boy they are incredible looking for college cards way to step it up press pass. these cards blow away what i saw from upperdeck so far and way better autograph pontential.
Card design is great however the price is just a little too high.The autos really stick out on the mirror background.The Andrew Luck card is so sweet!!!
These cards look amazing! The foil really makes the player photos pop. The autographs clearly dull the shine enough to be subtly highlighted. And five guaranteed autographs from these future NFL stars for around $100 is a steal. I can’t wait till these come out. Who knows…maybe I’ll get “lucky” sometime soon!
The cards look awesome! And how lucky was that pull. I would like to have that for my collection. I saw blue and red ink, I want to know more about the different colors.
Looks decent. I like the shiny clean look of the cards and big thumbs up for the hard-signed cards. Now how can Press Pass continually produce on-card autograph cards and other companies fail miserably?
Always been a fan of chrome type cards and the on card autographs look great. Never really been a fan of Press Pass design but this year is different as its more of a simple design. Press Pass is really stepping up its game this year. Getting exclusive Luck rights doesn’t hurt either.
Great Product!! Really like the on card autographs and the chrome look makes it even better.
Love the foil board and on-card auto’s. I like it a lot more than past Press Pass releases.
Press Pass always does a great job with their autographed cards!!! This brand, which is featured on the back cover of this months Beckett Sports Card monthly, is probably the best looking design I have ever seen from Press Pass in years. They really stepped up their game. Great Break guys. And hope to win! Good luck to all!
Amazing Luck pull. Would look great in anyones collection. My husband would love to own it. Actually i am just saying that…i want it. Press Pass did good with this one. Foil and 5 autos per box look great. Good LUCK to everyone!
The autographs on the foil cards look awesome, especially the Luck auto. Would look even better in my collection. Thanks as always for the box breaks!
On card autos look great. Love the look of the product. I just find it hard to convince myself to spend $100+ on 5 cards.
I realy like the Press Pass Fanfare product. The foil board really takes the product to the next level and is a major upgrade from the other products. The on card autographs really seem to pop on the card and really look impressive. Can’t wait to get it.
Wow! I’m really impressed with the way the on card autos look! I might have to go pick up a box of this product now
Another great looking Press Pass product. They always make them pop even with plain helmets!
Andrew Luck 1 draft pick what else do you have to say.
Dan, Andrew ,
great break 5 auto’s is a FARE chance to get a hit to break even. You have to give Press Pass a lot of credit a hobby stable for years that always delivers the ON-CARD Auto’s. I do have 1 thing to coment on is the Player postion I wish they would do more to include that per card even on the auto’s. The foil board is nice touch and a good job of Branding here Fanfare is not just for racing anymore. Shame they aren’t producing Basketball anymore.Hope I get ‘LUCKY’ look forward to more breaks.
love the press pass fanfare cards. Think the on card autos look great on the foil cards. Especially the red ink ones. I’ve had a nasty run of bad LUCK on cards hits lately so I hope ya’ll can change it to good LUCK by telling me I won the andrew luck auto. I think it is awesome that it is a next level ink insert auto also. Thanks and congrats to whomever wins it. Even if it’s not me, lol.
these press pass cards are very nice but it seems like they are stealing leaf metals thunder, i am a fan of press pass and Andrew Luck but would be more apt to buy a pack like this at $80-$90 a pack rather than $100-$125 there is just way too many $8.00-$12.00 autos out there for me to justify $125 for 5 cards. i love the look of Lucks autograph so smooth SWEEEET.
Love the shine these cards have!!! Makes the autos glisten and stare at you like their from the Land Of OZ. Incredible. The Luck pull was amazing. This product seems to have what all of us collectors like and chase after, appeal, autographs and shiny things.
Press pass has held a nice niche in the hobby for quite some time.
Ever since most companies have gone the sticker route we were left with
Press pass as the way to go to get hard signed autos. Their red ink variation
is like the hidden short prints in Playoff Contenders, a nice bonus for those in
The cards look awesome and I’m sure Press Pass has made sure that the ink
won’t fade or smear, making them that much cooler.
The Andrew Luck auto shown is one of the better ones I’ve seen. He obviously
took his time with this one and its a step up from what I originally saw out
there. I’m hoping to have a little “luck” of my own and win this card.
(I’m sure you will hear a 100 variations of this pun, I apologize for adding to the pile.) :-)
I see a lot of possitive comments here yet under the video on you-tube most people put dislike. I personally really like this product, these cards are very easy on the eyes, they are clean looking and presented very well. The one thing I like about Andrew Lucks autograph is he took the time to put down a very nice clean looking auto which seems to be rare in young players today. I probably won’t be able to buy a box of these cards for I have a small box budget, so I would really like this card.
Press Pass FanFare looks great. The Colts will draft their next superstar QB Andrew Luck.
Really like the look of this product. That foil board looks really clean and not too flashy at all. Seems to be pretty short printed also. Will most likely be buying a couple of these boxes upon release.
Nice Cards. Wasn’t familar with Press Pass Fanfare prior to this post. Sure am now. That Luck card is awesome. You had me at Andrew Luck auto. Wow.
Well the card looks great. I like how the signature pops off the card.
Can’t wait till I get my own.
Love the high-end CHROMIUM technology and the ‘on card’ auto’s, instead of stickers, make these even sharper and sleek, I haven’t seen a Press Pass card like this since, well…..ever.
Very, very nice product.
Looking forward to the arrival of these at my local store. :)
Sweet Foil!!! Luck will be under some pressure but I think he will be fine. I like the reflective foil parallel especially when compared the base. Sweet card!!
Press pass cards look great this year. Love the clean auto look.
I love the foil board! Great clean looking cards. The on card autos are amazing!
The $100+ price tag per box (even with the 5 autos) makes me a little hesitant to invest, but seeing decent value in both boxes with actual name players that will make an impact at the next level raises the possibility that I’ll grab a box or two.
The cards, including the Luck, look really crisp with sharp signatures and no glaring imperfections that you get with other similar products. Really nice job by the people over at Press Pass.
Press Pass has done a great job with cards. This Fan Fare product looks awesome this year! On Card autos are always the best, knowing that he player handled that card and signed it. Thumbs up to Press Pass!
Nice looking cards,,,I’ve only been collecting cards for 4 years now,,, but I’ve been a big fan of the press pass cards
I don’t care for the product too much, no license and copying Leaf of all things = bad call. But all that hate aside, gimme some Luck please!
Wow , such a good product . Press Pass did an awesome job with the design and have on card autos. Well worth product to try .
Looks like a great set, with amazing potential value for the money. Fun set to collect and watch as rookies play great or bust throughout the season. High risk high reward, and at the end of the day, even if the players don’t pan out, you end up with some nice shiny cards to look at.
With this release of Press Pass FanFare, I feel like Press Pass is saying “Panini Who?”, “Topps Who?”, “Upper Deck Who?”. Press Pass has always been oncard and now they have taken their football product to the next level. My daughter and I will only break Press Pass boxes and now we are excited to break this product.
PRESS PASS HAS released yet another great product. The cards look great, the autographs are on card [ON CARD ISNT HARD]
the russell wilson makes me sick, NCSU should have kept him for one more year. He played in asheville last year.
Anway COngrats press pass, and makes me really want to see what you have in store for fanfare racing
An impressive and well designed play! Press Pass completed one for a touchdown!
Wow, I really like the look of Fanfare. Its by far the best Press Pass product Ive ever seen. This is really the first Press Pass product that actually jumps out to me. I like the whole chrome like look of the cards and on card autos are always a plus to me. This is also the most fun time for me to invest because its fun collecting pre draft cards of the next stars in the NFL. The price seems fine to me for 5 autos in a great looking product. Prior to this video I had never heard of Fanfare but Ill be keeping a look out for what Press Pass has in store. Overall a nice product that I believe will be a hit.
I love Press Pass. To me they are the best draft cards made and have been for the last 15 or so years. Love the Foil Board, on card autos and redemption free !
Great looking set, Ill be picking some of these up!
great looking cards, love the fact that everything is ON CARD! I also didn’t see any redemptions, that’s always a good thing.
I always love the look of press pass. This year is no different. The on card autographs are superb! And I defintely agree with Rob about no redemptions, those can be a pain.
The new 2012 press pass fanfare looks awesome this year. Of Course…they’re on card autos just like every year of PP. Every box I’ve seen contains a very solid hit: Dan’s-R. Tannehill/Andrew’s-A. Luck. Please pick me for the Andrew Luck auto and I am honored to be in the running for the card. Thanks for all the great vids and keep ’em comin’! Have a great day!
Wow, those are beautiful cards, incredible pull on the Luck auto. Wish I had that “Luck”, purchased 5 boxes of regular Press Pass and my best pull was a base Michael Floyd auto. Swore I wouldnt buy anymore, but will have to open up a box of fanfare. Really like the foil surface!
The Press Pass Fanfare cards kind of have a very basic design, but the on-card auto is very sweet. It gives collector’s a sense of authenticity when purchasing the Press pass brand. Also, it’s great to get a shot at Luck, RG3, or Richardson in these new packs.
It’s a shame that Press Pass doesn’t have an NCAA license (or NFL). These cards look great. Their customer service is second to none. Put some college logos on those cards and they match up pretty good to anything UD has put out so far with their NCAA exclusive.
I looks alot like the leaf metal draft, but if you are looking to not have duplicates and collecting a set it looks to be be a nice set!!!
Press Pass really stepped up their game on this product…IMPRESSIVE. Those on card auto’s look great on the foil board. As “Luck” would have it Press Pass sends you guys a box with his auto, great idea to give it away to a BECKETT Fan.
I donno why but on card auto gives me this amazing feeling about collecting cards. They are more personal in my opinion. These cards are also nice looking as well, which is just a beautiful combination.
Very good looking set. Looking forward to collecting them.
I really like the design. The strong checklist along with the chrome type card makes it a card I want
It looks very nice, love the foil for autographs. Also thought
Using the bar code for checklists was also a good idea. The card’s
Layout looks vey clean, almost reminds me of Topps Chrome
type but without the chrome borders which gives it a cleaner look IMO.
Would love to see these released for baseball or basketball.
Keep up the good work!
I love this product!!! Wish I had the funds to get some but money is still tight…
Thanks for the vids as always
Sweet cards – love the foil. Nice job on the video. I would love to have the Luck card for my collection.
Luck is the rebuild, let’s get this party started!
The FanFare looks so much better than the regular Press Pass! I love the foil look on these cards! lol Would love to feel LUCKy but if not wouldnt mind winning the Quick since im an Appalachian Grad!
I’ve actually never bought a press pass box, but I may now
Cool looking product.
I think these cards look awesome! Press Pass, as always, has done a great job bringing the biggest names to the collectors. The foil cards are pretty sweet, but I am not sure that autographs on them are as easily seen as on the white matte background.
I love the look of the cards. I will say that I have always been more of a collegiate level collector, so PressPass was always my choice. I hope they are able to get their license back. That being said, they have done a very good job in selecting photographs of players where there isn’t that weird ‘blank’ space were logos should go. The chrome finish is done will and it looks like they knew to use a proper pen when signing (no bubbles in the signatures). I, myself, never cared for multiple copies of the same PressPass base cards – so this product seems like a winner. Nothing but hits – that is a winner. (Gig em!)
Killer cards! Press Pass shows that you don’t need the crazy gimmicks or any type of licensing to come out with stellar on card autos, low numbered parallels, and the coolest inscriptions and red ink autos out. Press Pass should be commended for the products they put out. Congrats!
Big fan of the foilboard look of these cards. Press Pass may want to consider switching to this type of technology for most of their future football releases.
Great looking product, all the QB cards are must have this rookie class since this will probably be a record breaking year for first round QB selections. Luck card looks awesome and it could be a rough year for Colt fans, since half the team has left the stables.
I have always loved the Press Pass products
but they have really taken a lot of pride in this
product. On card autos on the foil really pop.
The Luck card makes my mouth water. Thanks
for the look!
I’m a huge fan on-card autographs, an area where Press Pass always shines.
I like the Fanfare cards…clean signatures that really pop from the reflector like background. Always nice to not get a sticker…
Even I think these cards rock! Nice job Press Pass!
Looks like a good product at a good price. Autos are sharp. Hope I’m Luck-y.
AWESOME product!!! Press Pass has taken over the card business no doubt!!!!
As Goldmember would say, “This set is vert toit, like a tiger.”
Love this product. Gets you ready for the draft. The. basic press pass was a fun set to build
He will need alot of LUCK to be half as good as Peyton Manning. But I still would not mind having his Auto RC, Thanks.
Great feature with the QR Code to get the Checklist! The cards are very shinney! :-)
They look good, always a fan of getting some early draft cards from Press Pass and these are bit higher end than the regular Press Pass Football, without all the inserts and base RCs.
Those cards are pretty impressive! I’ve never seen the fanfare line of cards before but I like what I see. As always, the on card autos are awesome. I really like the Luck card because the “Next Level Ink” below his autograph breaks up the card and you’re not left with a lot of empty space around the auto like with the other cards.
This product looks really nice, especially with its shine. I’ll probably grab a box.
These cards look so clean, much better than Leaf Metal. That Luck card is very fresh and I wouldn’t mind adding it to my personal collection. I’ll be putting in a pre-order very soon, I’ve just been waiting to see the product…Thanks Box Busters!
Press Pass Fan Fare are very Slick looking cards. I like the mirror like finish.
Im a huge fan a Press Pass products. There’s nothing like the on-card autographs. And I always tend to take my birthday money and spend it on a Press Pass product. They always seem to put out a quality product each and every year.
I really love the product. I thought it wouldnt be worth it but now i see its hidden value. I like the luck auto you pulled and would look good in my collection. I wanted to buy a luck auto but couldn’t afford it. I also think its cool that Beckett can make really good contests that you cant find anywhere else on the web.Thanks again to Beckett for putting this contest onto the internet.
Was there a winner yet? Was hoping to see an email!! :)
I like the cards alot. I believe that you can get your money’s worth from this product.
All in all GREAT.
Today’s my b-day, I really hope I win!!!
The 2012 Press Pass FanFare is a great looking product. I’ve bought a couple retail packs for $20 that contain a single auto. Haven’t had enough luck to to pull a Luck. (Pun intended). You guys pulled a sweet Andrew Luck Next Level Ink Auto. Very nice! I plan on making a trip to the hobby shop next week and I might have to pick up a box of FanFare. Thanks for the video.
