2018 Victory Lane - 2 boxes
My 2 hobby boxes arrived this morning. Box 1 was decent for me, but it seems like this box was meant for Tom. I pulled FIVE Tony Stewart cards, including the coolest card from both boxes. Keep in mind that scans DO NOT do this set justice. They look awesome in-hand. Base cards (and their parallels) are all-foil fronts and the non-AU/RU inserts are mostly holofoil fronts.

Box breakdown is 4 packs of 10 cards each. Each pack has 6 base cards, 1 base parallel, 2 other insert cards and 1 AU or RU card. One of the insert cards is always a Pedal to the Metal card. Seems like it might be a 100-card set but I haven't checked the CL yet. Huge insert set! The rest are pretty small though. All inserts and parallels with serial numbers have them on the front. All AU and RU cards have the serial numbers on the back.

Here's box #1: (I pulled 6 PC cards - 1 JJ parallel, 2 each of JJ and Dale Jr. base cards and 1 KyB base card)

Base Parallels:
Gold #28 Truex Jr. 61/99
Red #72 D. Wallace 35/49
Silver #25 J. Johnson
Silver #52 Stewart

Chasing the Flag # C7 R. Petty
Champions #C7 T. Labonte
Foundations #F3 Edwards

Pedal to the Metal Inserts:
#8 Elliott
#9 Buescher
#87 Ernie Irvan
#61 Stenhouse Jr.

THE HITS:

Race Ready Duals Black #RRD-TS Stewart 11/25
Signatures #S-MS Mike Skinner 076/299
Octane Autographs Gold #OA-AD A. Dillon 27/99

***********************************

Box 2 was even better to me personally. I pulled 14 PC cards, including 2 of the hits, another JJ base parallel, and 2 inserts. Believe it or not, I pulled EXACTLY what I hoped to pull from one of these boxes! Collation seems really good with these boxes. 80 cards and no dupicates. However, it's easy to know what type of HIT is in each pack. The first 2 packs have RU's and the next 2 packs have AU's. So I mixed up the packs this time to go AU, RU, AU, RU. You will see the hits in reverse order in the pics below (pack 4, pack 3, then 2 and 1).

Base parallels:
Blue #9 Ty Dillion 02/25
Gold #57 B. Elliott 27/99
Silver #17 Newman
Silver #91 J. Johnson

Inserts:

Foundations #F4 M. Martin
NASCAR at 70 #N7 D. Waltrip
Starting Grid Gold #S9 Ty Dillon 79/99

Pedal to the Metal:

#64 E. Jones
#90 J. Burton
GREEN #46 Newman 2/5!!!

Nice hits on the Bubba Wallace cards. It is sweet to hit PC cards.

I do like the looks of that patch on the Smoke Race Ready...

I knew you'd like that. I like that the tire piece is 3 colors too. That's very rare from Panini.
I was thrilled when I pulled the Bubba AU. I wish it was numbered lower, but I just wanted to pull another AU of him for my collection. Actually, that's the 1st one of him that I've pulled myself. I now have 11 of him. One is an IP that someone got for me though. It was nice to add another RU of his too. I don't have many of those yet.

Awesome Wallace auto, good looking card. I believe I have a couple Mike Skinner autos somewhere also.

I collect Michael Jordan, Larry Bird and Kevin Garnett also certain High End Celtics HOF's.

Thanks. I was happy to pull it. Yeah, I'll probably be stuck with the Skinner AU for a long time, as well as the Buescher AU. Might be stuck with the Dillon AU too since my usual person to trade his cards to had to stop collecting.
