My thoughts on it was it looks amazing! It looks a lot different from 2011 and 2012 this looks like they put some effort behind it to make this card. Good job to the designer of this wonderful looking card I love it. My favorite thing about it is the green, pinks and cameo parallels. In my option it is something new and cool  not something that looks like the just put a slight change to it that's what is really boring. It looks to me if you buy a jumbo and get a case hit that you might get something worth your money.

There is one thing that bothers me is that there is way to much space on the bottom of the card I think that with that much space that they should have put the players positions. In my opinion that is something that they need to do with ever year they make.

If you guy go back up and look between 6 and 8 you might see that there is no 7. my question is why? They have been putting Mantles in there since 2006 why stop now? If any of you guy's know why just leave a comment saying why the left it out it just seems weird to me.

I want you guys to give me your thoughts on the design and inserts for the set just put a comment below.
