Check out the Pettis card... one of the absolute coolest shots of any sport I have ever seen! Looks like all he is hitting is hair!!!

This issue - Moment of Truth - is a cross between art cards and photography. I have mixed feelings about the mixture. One part of me likes the art portion and the other part of me wants a sharp digital action shot... you will need to make up your own mind on this one. The action shots are excellent - one can tell the photographer was nearly in the ring with the fighters. The reverse of the card gives stats of the fighter and a Moment of Truth in his/her fighting career.

The Debut cards have a red addition to the reverse of the card that denotes when the debut fight occurred.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

UFC Moment of Truth - a strong issue for the set builder. One receives 117 cards of the base set. ( I am guessing that the set is about 200 - no check list is included in the box/set) One should only have to buy 2-3 boxes to complete a base set.

The gold parallel set is a build-able possibility - the red and black set might be a little difficult - especially the red set - only 8 of each!!

The fight worn gear cards are well done and the auto is a sticker auto. The card is designed for a sticker.

Overall grade A- the UFC is a hot product.

Go buy several boxes and send the red parallels to me!

Seems like a nice box with solid GU and auto there.

Did you get any Jon "Bones" Jones cards in there by chance?
