Bottom Line:

This is a fun product and has many hidden surprises. The product is laced with history. The classic look makes this set one of a kind. The on card autographs are crisp and clean. The case break is a piece of history and that alone makes this set unique. I give this an A++ as the cards are beautiful and the clean. This is a set for builders and for casual collectors.
