A little Past and a little Pressent…

I love me some Past and Present, I am even on record.

This years set continues where they left off last year and went a little further with the inclusion of rookies.

On the topic of rookies here is the top dog of this years class…

Not too bad.

I like the retro look of these cards and special props for the old school flat gloss free surface.

The autos are mostly rookies. I didn’t get anyone too great in my box but these are cool enough.

Whenever I look at this dudes name i think of spaghetti sauce…

The other autos in the set tend to be retired players.

Jack Sikma, there is a name i haven’t thought of in a long time.

The base cards seem to come in two variaties,

The stars along the side and

geometric shapes.

I think I like the second type a little better.

Just like last year we get a ton of cool inserts.

It wasn’t until I was scanning this that a realized the background is the bottom of a shoe.

These are unique in that the other inserts all have a very modern look while these keep the retro look of the base set.

This is a one per box SP.

These have received some attention both good and not so good.

The fuzzy headband cards. Some say they are a stupid gimmick. I say those people need to lighten up. They are silly for sure but that is a good thing in my mind.

Panini didn’t let the flocking machine sit too long as they have a second fuzzy insert in the set.

Little banners of championship teams. I am a fan. Both cards i got in my box where from the Rockets.

These boxes are pretty cheap and you get a ton of fun cards.
