Last year, the greatest thing to ever happen to sport cards occurred in Legacy football with their inclusion of my Super PC Rodney Hampton. I was hoping that this years edition would do the same.
But, nope. No Rodney Hampton this time around. It makes me wonder if Panini will include him in any of this years products. Hopefully if someone finds that info out for me, they will let me know.
Either way, here in my hands right now resides a box of 2020 Legacy football and I am ready to rip it. I will hold off on the breakfast in the meantime, I will just sip away on my coffee until I am done.
*the first few sips, time to rip*
This years base set for Legacy hasn't changed up too much staying with a bigger bordered set, single focused on the player with action photography.
Just like last years edition, Legacy came loaded with a variety of parallels.
Here is a breakdown of them,
Parallel cards for the base include, Red /299, Orange /199, Yellow /150, Green /100, Blue /50, Indigo /25, Violet /10, and Black 1/1.
The Base Premiums are a parallel set that has it's own set of parallels. This years Premiums are all rookies, so no veteran content in the base premiums.
They have the following parallels,
Silver, Bronze /100, Ruby /75, Sapphire /35, Gold /25, Diamond /10, and Platinum 1/1.
Not bad with a Love. I think this guy is going to be good.
New to this years product is Base Premium Edition minis. Yup, those hard to store mini's make their appearance in this years Legacy set.
They include the following parallels,
Emerald found only in Dare to Tear, Bronze /100, Ruby /75, Sapphire /50, Gold /25, Diamond /10, and Platinum 1/1.
*feels a little tired, stands up to stretch, heads back to the coffee maker as he sipped away all of his cup and grabs a fresh cup. Time to sit down and work on the inserts*
Along with the base, Base Premiums and Mini Base Premiums, the inserts have their own set of parallels too. You can find the following, Green /100, Blue /50, Indigo /25, Violet /10, and Black 1/1.
For The Ages. Those throwback players who dominated. There are 20 cards in this set to collect
*takes a gulp of coffee, moves onto the hits*
There are two autographs to find in this box and can be anything from rookies to veterans to legends so it always keeps you on your feet.
This was a fun box break overall. I like seeing the base card photography, always enjoy the chrome cards and the hits can be such a variety it will be interesting to see what you find.
The mini's bring a nice touch but what I really wanted to see was the Dare To Tear program. It's just like the Rip Cards for Topps but Dare To Tear was introduced in the late 90's by Pinnacle and hasn't been around in some time. Just like with a rip card, I didn't pull a Dare To Tear card so I have never had to make that tough decision of having to rip a card or not. I still don't think I would.
The price point is solid right now in comparison to other releases out there and with a solid checklist you could find this to be a steal.
*done typing and touching cards, time for breakfast with this second cup*
