This year was the first year that both retail and hobby were printed on the same card stock. Before hobby has printed on a thicker card stock than the retail version. That meant if you wanted to put a set together you had to choose which product you wanted to buy other wise you had a mismash of thick and thin cards in your set.
Over the years I've pulled some great cards from Prime and I figured the price was right and I did want to build this years set.
The first thing I noticed was how few parallels and inserts are in this set. I only pulled 3 gold foil parallels, one numbered rookie. And there were only two inserts Prime Time and Prime Rookies.
I won't bore you with all the fluff or the inserts, I'll just give you the hits, because really that's why you're here. Each hobby box comes with 4 hits. With at least 2 autos.
First up is the Allen Robinson quad prime relic numbered to #75. Allen isn't having too bad of a rookie year with 2 TD's and about 550 yards so far. Plus I love the lover right patch with the threads sticking out.
But over all this was a Giants box for sure. Next up we have a quad relic auto of Andre Williams. Not a bad designed card, but the relics are kind of boring. This rookie from Boston College isn't having a bad year either with over 370 yards and 5 TD's.
Of course I bought this box before Odell's insane catch last week that's been a little ridiculous in the marketing that's followed, but hey good for the kid. It's a nice relic card, it just seems like the relic is really small for this card.
