    The 50 card base setfeature a color torso shot of the named driver. The driver picture is glossy superimposed over a matte grey scale background. The border-less card fronts have a graphic on the bottom that contains the driver name, set name and is trimmed with red foil. The card backs show a color picture of the drivers car. The backs contain basic biographical information, moderate career highlights all on the same grey scale background. Parallel sets include serial numbered version of cyan, magenta, yellow and black numbered numbered out of 99 down to 1/1.

    21 unique cards - no duplicates

    2013 Press Pass Red Line is another high end racing product. The base cards are simple and clean but may lack a little of the flash you might expect with an expensive card product. As per usual, the base cards are in alphabetical order by the driver's last name. The autos are on card and are very sharp. The sub-sets have nice themes. The bonus relic card was a nice surprise! The only real drawback besides the expensive chase for the base set would be that it could be a hit or miss product. Sometimes you win on a lotto ticket. sometimes you lose.

    The Bottom Line: I give 2013 Press Pass Red Line a shop around rating. Unless you are itching to bust some high end product, buy the singles you want. If you do buy a box and trade your Dale Jr. cards to me!

    The Final Score:
    Final Ratings (Out of 10):
    Base set collect-ability: 2/10
    Big-hit Hunter: 10/10
    Prospector Hunter: NA
    Value: 9/10
    Overall Quality: 8/10

    Overall: 29/40 (72.5% = C)
    The biggest drawback being that you will need several boxes to complete the base set.

    As always I am offering base and insert cards to members here for a SASE.

    Thanks to Press Pass for making this review possible!

    Words well spoken!

    Great review... on a very high end product. I have seen a few other box breaks that, on their very best day, the buyer will never, and I mean NEVER, recover the cost of the box.

    Since I was able to pick up some inserts on the Topps Museum break you did, I will pass up the offer of the base and inserts... hoping someone else here takes the offer!
