Looking at the set made me cringe. These are your typical Panini over-designs that make you wonder who actually green lighted them. Floating dime-sized patches do not help and each card contains way too much information jammed in to the design. There is no real hierarchy and since they used multiple fonts the card does not flow.
My interest is peaked by the 5 card Limited Cuts insert. I am unable to find any images of the cards so I figure that these are cut signatures, which in this case may work very well as long as the design looks good.
A solid checklist including rookies, stars and legends
On card autographs
Very limited (low numbered) inserts/parallels
Parallels and more parallels
Horrid designs with floating designs
I have to rate this at 3 out of 5 because while there is a great checklist and the autographs are on card autographs the problem lies in the design.
