UFC Title Shot

16 packs // 16 cards per pack

2 Relics // 2 Autos per box

I received the following:

Opened the box and a piece of paper said "Congratulations this box contains an oversized card - check under the cardboard bottom"

This is a 5X7 thick card with a very large piece of the mat from the octagon mat. Pretty cool!

126 unique base cards -- 84% of a base set of 150.

UFC Title Shot cards are high gloss and full bleed pictures. The base cards have silver foil logos and fighter's names - most in action shots.

The reverse of the cards have a quick synopsis of their famous fights and the rookies (debut cards) have a synopsis of their potential in the fight business.


Inserts

Gold parallels / Silver (platinum?) parallels

*****************

UFC and MMA seem to be taking over the fight game. When was the last time you heard about a heavy weight boxing match? These cards are very well produced. The HD photography is excellent - one can see the details of every tattoo these fellers have - PLUS one can see the expressions on their faces -- very cool.

As I understand it, these are flying off of the shelves at hobby stores. One should be able to build a base set with only 2 boxes and the gold set should be possible to build with 6 boxes purchased - or a bunch of trips to ebay.

I like the relics - not so much the small pieces of the mat, but the pieces of 'worn gear' -- these guys don't wear a massive amount of clothing - so there should be many fewer pieces (as opposed to a baseball uni or a football uni.)

The auto is a sticker auto and the card is designed for the sticker - good job!

Never been a fan of the redemption cards, it usually seems to take way too long to get them back.

Overall grade A+ photography is excellent in this set.

Go pick up several boxes and send the Quinton Jackson cards (something about that name) to me!!
