2010 Topps Unrivaled NFL

Per Box Items:
24 packs per box
5 cards per pack
1 autographed patch relic or dual autograph
2 Rookie autographs

The standard sized cards feature a full color action shot of the player. Bordered on the bottom and sides, the background fades to white at the top. The set logo,player name, team nickname and position are all listed on the bottom of the card front. The side borders are trimmed in the team's primary color. The card backs are photo-less. Also trimmed in the teams primary color on the borders, the backs basic biographical information, moderate career highlights, and complete career statistics. The team logo also adorns the card backs.

**************************************** *****************
Not that opening super high-end product is not fun, but it was nice to open a box of cards with lots of pack to open. Unrivaled is a great product which will appeal to several collector types. First and foremost you will pull a complete set! Lots of parallels and RC short prints to chase will provide the thrill of the hunt. I really like the fact that all of the inserts, parallels and hits are all serial numbered. The hits are cool and i like the horizontal design. Prospectors might feel Unrivaled is a little light on Rookies however.

The Bottom Line:
I give 2010 Topps Unrivaled a buy rating. A good value and very fun box. A complete set in one box and good hits to flip to help get your money back. Buy a box and trade your Tebow cards to me!

The Final Score:
Final Ratings (Out of 5):
Base set collect-ability: 5/5
Big-hit Hunter: 4/5
Prospector Hunter:3/5
Overall Design: 5/5
Fun: 5/5
Value: 5/5
Re-buy: 5/5
Overall Quality: 5/5

Overall: 37/40 (92.5% = A)

As always I am offering base cards to members of The Bench for a SASE

Thanks to Topps for making this review possible!
