Great place to have cards graded. Low prices with super fast turn around. I have sent in twice for 10 day service and had them back in under 10 days both times. Their Facebook site does new set review...s and contests all the time. Great site for collectors. See More

The most specular sports card discovery of its kind in history, 13 decades-old boxes of sealed packs found in an old aunt's attic, has sold for $900,000. While an investor would be wise to keep them unopened, collectors will probably let 'er rip.

Press Pass Sell Sheet

The 100 card base set features a color candid shot of the drivers and action shots of the cars. A simple graphic bordering the card bottom contains the driver's name and the series in which they run, (Sprint Cup, Nationwide etc.) The set logo is on the upper right corner. The card backs have a color action picture of the driver's car or truck. The card back also contain moderate career highlights and mast season's statistics.

What I pulled:
175 cards
165 base set cards, complete 100 card base set and 65 duplicates
8 inserts
1 autograph
1 relic

Base card front and back:

The inserts:
Velocity: Busch, Kenseth
Replay: Edwards, Kahne, Johnson, Regan, Biffle
Cup Chase Contest Card Jimmie Johnson

The hits:
Regan Smith autograph gold #/25

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

2014 Press Pass is the base set from Press Pass this year. The cards are listed alphabetically list by drivers last name. The set is also broken into several sub-sets, (Sprint Cup, Nationwide, Camping World etc.) The inserts look sharp and are very creative. Pulling a Johnson contest card is a good one for this year as well. The autograph is on-card and fits the card design very well. Buy a box and trade your Dale Jr. inserts to me!

The Bottom Line: I give 2014 Press Pass a buy rating. Pulling a complete set from just one box? Yes please!
The Final Score:
Final Ratings (Out of 10):
Base set collect-ability: 10/10
Big-hit Hunter: 8/10
Prospector Hunter: NA
Value: 9/10
Overall Quality: 8/10

Admittedly, I am not a big hockey guy, much less non-NHL hockey. Not having a NHL or NHLPA license dis not stop ITG from putting out a nice product. The base set card design is simple and clean. ITG always seems to produce nice relic cards. The autographs are sticker autos. However, the cards are designed to fit them well. This product may only appeal to hockey collectors and prospectors at that.

The Bottom Line:
I give 2013-14 ITG Heroes and Prospects a buy rating. You should be able to complete the base set with two boxes and some light trading to to make sure you get the short prints.

The Final Score:
Final Ratings (Out of 10):

2013 Bowman Sterling

Per Box Items:
6 packs per box
4 cards per pack...
3 autographed card per pack

The base cards feature a color action shot of the named player superimposed on a 2 tone chrome and grey background. The set name is centered along the top of the card and the player's name and position at the bottom. The team name is behind the player. The card backs are photo-less. The backs include basic biographical information, career statistics and minor league statistics if available. The autographed cards are similar in design save for the bottom third of the card are designed to fit the autograph.

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

2013 Bowman Sterling is all about the autos. Autos! Autos!! Autos!!! The card design is clean and sharp. Prospectors will will ripping this product. The autographs are a combination of on-card and sticker. The stickers do not detract from the card however. As always, I have never been a big fan of redemption cards and I pulled two in this box.

The Bottom Line:
I give 2013 Bowman Sterling a buy rating. I do not recommend this product for set collectors and most will just want to buy singles they want. If you have the money and like prospecting, buy a box and trade your Tigers to me!
