    I agree Panini should think about bringing these cards back. With the new technology I am sure they could do more with them and still keep the price down. It would be a nice set to get in BB/FB/Bsktb or Hockey. The sets were small and I think it would make it even more fun to collect. Looking forward to you doing an updated box if you can get 1. #BringbackActionPacked

    In my opinion,Action Packed was ahead of it’s time.With the gold,the gems embedded,the heat sensitive technology,and the overall layout of their cards.It seemed to me they put quite a bit of thought into their rookie inclusions,as well.I know it was a different era where there wasn’t 40 different releases,but there’s a lot of players who only have an Action Packed rookie card.The biggest name that comes to mind,is Troy Brown.I’m pretty sure that card made the hot list a couple times,during their Super Bowl runs.I think it might be a thing for Panini to think about bringing back,but I’m not sure in which way.I recall in either ’02 or ’03,without looking it up, Donruss making Action Packed inserts and I don’t think people took to it.It just wasn’t the same.I’m not sure how they could work with the auto/mem demands,of today,and deliver the same look as 20 years ago.It was an acquired taste back then and I’m not sure if there’s a big enough market to make it its own product now.
