My LCS had box of 2017 Elite Extra Edition for sale for a really good price. Though I'm not normally a Panini guy, I decided to give it a try. The box came with eight guaranteed hits, at least six of which were autos.
This is a base auto from the set. It's an on-card auto. Most of the autos in the set are on-card, though there are still a number of sticker autos.
There are also auto parallels. This is a diecut "Status" parallel featuring Detroit's Alex Faedo, numbered to 75.
The box contained a number of parallels, also. Unlike Topps, these parallels really pop.
Some parallels are diecut, like this one.
My box had two relics. The first was this one:
This jumbo Future Threads relic features a jersey swatch from Rhys Hoskins, numbered to 99.
My last relic was this:
A jumbo patch auto of Ynmanol Marinez, now a member of the Miami Marlins organization. It's a nice patch and a low number. The only problem I have is the sticker auto. But hey, it does no good to complain now.
I enjoyed this break. Having seven autos in my box (though not all are shown here) was pretty awesome. I also really enjoy the parallels. As I mentioned above, they really pop and stand out from what Topps would consider a parallel.
Elite is a great looking product.ReplyDelete
THese look pretty nice. Can usually get some decent prospects for a more affordable price.ReplyDelete
I thought I was a prospect guy, but the only name I recognized was Hoskins. I need to dive back into MiLB.ReplyDelete
