All base cards are actually rookie cards, but that does not make up for the redundant, insipidness of a design. After 11 cards and 60 seconds I found myself feeling as though I was in some sort of discombobulating episode of Twilight Zone. The base cards are lackluster and very similar to last year.
Exactly the same as the base card just slightly smaller…
Well this is a shock…. The autograph cards are just a base card with a sticker. This one isn’t even serial numbered.
This is the first time I have reviewed a product negatively. I understand this is a Target Exclusive Retail Product and one that has always purposely lacked a contemporary feel. However, I find the value / entertainment versus cost to be inexcusable. This pack took me 60 seconds to open; all the cards are virtually the same in design. There are no inserts unless you consider a slightly smaller card than the rest an insert. Plus the autograph cards are not serial numbered nor are they on-card. Can you pull serial numbered autos? Yes, but at $24.99 + tax ($27) you are paying $2.45 per card – every single pack of Turkey Red should include a serial numbered card at that price. Quick comparison – 2014 Topps Valor is $0.54 per card or $27 would buy you 8 packs. In those 8 packs you will acquire better looking cards, more rookies, parallels, serial numbered cards and most likely 1 or 2 hits.
Then I thought to myself “Wow, if someone bought one of Jammin JD’s $25 packs what would they get?” Let’s take a look….
My suggestion would be to avoid 2014 Topps Turkey Red and save yourself those precious 60 seconds and $27.
