Press Pass Power Pick Packs Are Back

Last year Press Pass introduced the Power Pack Program, a hobby-exclusive program where they insert bonus packs in to certain products. These bonus packs include base cards, base parallel cards, base autographs, autographed buyback cards, race-used memorabilia cards and instant win cards. They are continuing the program this year with Power Pick packs inserted in to the recently released 2013 Press Pass Racing (some packs were sent to select card shops.)
The 2013 Power Pick set contains a 25-card base set, which is limited to #/99, and there are two parallels, Gold- #/50 and Hologram #/25 or less. Most of the high profile racers are include like Jeff Gordon, Dale Earnhardt (and DE Jr.), Matt Kenseth, Danica Patrick and Richard Petty.

The autograph set is based on the base card checklist but it uses a different design and the cards are limited to #/50.

The cards that seem to be getting some major attention are the buyback autographs, which come from the 1999 Press Pass Signings autograph set. The reason for the attention is due mainly to the inclusion of Dale Earnhardt autographs.
There is a nice selection of base card singles available on eBay with most selling for a couple of dollars. None of the high profile autographs have shown up yet, so far only a Rusty Wallace buyback is available.
