http://paniniamerica.wordpress.com/2012/04...onal-treasures/

A couple observations/questions: How would Panini ship this to the people that pull the redemptions? How do you store these monstrosities? (spell check) I would sell this in a heartbeat because no way would I want to damage it further. Also, even though these look really cool, it is kind of sad how far event worn jerseys have gone. It's like Panini had a bunch of patches lying around and threw them together to makes this monster lol. rolleyes.gif

Nice, er, so-so! It is nice that they are inventive and create something like this, but how do you display it? You can't. Seriously this exemplifies what is wrong with the hobby! Why not make each of those cards individual cards, rather than making a monstrosity that is unable to be displayed without a funky holder.

While I understand y'alls critiques of the
card, it is a very unique piece (even #'d
to five). I'm sure there a quite a few
collectors that will buy the product just for
the impractical chance at pulling it.

One thing's for sure . . .

I won't be chasing it.

Collect Hard!,

i dont know, I guess I would appreciate it more if these patches were game-used. However, you will more than likely never see a game used monster-book like this ever because of the cost to the card companies. idk, just seems like a gimmick to me. good marketing though i guess.

I'd snip the "connecters" between each card and call Krusin to frame the 36 card set for me smile.gif

I think they've crossed the line between book cards and individual cards taped together.

PWE or Plain White Envelope is ONLY okay for 1 or 2 base cards. Otherwise use of a padded or bubble mailer is expected.
