Quality of Collation if opening the boxes - Very Good
My Opinion on the Set - Very flashy and very colorful design. Very strong crop of young stars which is the main attraction of this set. There is a subset of Old Time Hall of Famers featuring Jack Johnson, Sonny Liston, Willie Pep and others however the design is very blah compared to the rest of the set. The collation is very good for the basic set and set building is easy. You have a great shot at 2 full sets per box. The Gold foil chase set can be a bit of a challenge to complete with the Carbajal being the toughest as stated above. You will usually get 4 or 5 chase cards per box.
