The 2013 NASCAR season is in full swing and the latest product to hit the hobby scene is the 2013 PressPass Ignite Racing Hobby Box. This is a low-mid range product offering some decent bang for your buck. We purchased a box of Ignite in 2012 and was impressed with it so we decided to keep the tradition going.
Chase inserts to look for are Davey Allison Tribute cards and Danica Patrick Daytona 500 Pole award cards. Each of those are only slotted 1 per Half case and should provide some good secondary market appeal. Odds to find one of these are 1:200 packs
One other special with this product are Hot Boxes. They are found 1 Hot Box per Half Case and will provide an Bonus Hit of a Hot Threads Patch Card, Supercharged Signatures Autographed Quad Memorabilia or Great American Treads Autographed Daytona 500 Tire Cards.
One thing we really like about this product is we have been able to put together the 70 card set within 1 box purchase. Not a big deal for some but it is really nice that you can do it within 1 box and come away with a little extra doubles from the packs. The base card cards also have 4 parallels to find with Black (/50), Yellow (/5) in hobby packs with Cyan (Walmart) and Magenta (Target) found at Retail.
So Lets see how we did with our box:
Parallel: 1 - Mark Martin Black /50
Convoy: 2 - Earnhardt Jr., Kyle Busch
Profile: 2 - Kenseth, Hamlin
Turning Point: 2 - Kyle Busch, Edwards
Hall of Fame: 1 - Leonard Wood
Allison Tribute: 1 Davey Allison DA4
Hot Threads: 1 - Carl Edwards Blue #'d 02/99
Ignite Ink: 1 - Paul Menard Blue #'d 16/25
Bonus Hit: Great American Treads Marcos Ambrose Autographed Daytona Raced Used Tire #'d 4/20
before we get to the goods, here is our review on the cards. The Base cards are nice and simple. Same sort of design as last year but really liked the Top Speed cards. We came away with the full 70 card set and the 20 doubles weren't bad either with Earnhardt, Gordon, Johnson and Patrick within them.
So as you have seen we hit a Hot Box. Not only did we get the bonus hit but we came away with a Hot Threads and Ignite Ink parallels, along with the Davey Allison Tribute card. The Allison is a basic insert card but only 2 of them are found per case so not a bad hit.
