Overall Thoughts: Pretty much what I expected. I'm a sucker for pulling rookies so I'm happy I hit the Wiggins (also hit Parker, Randle, and Aaron Gordon, some of the better rookies in this class). Nothing huge, though the Wade Gold Triple Jersey is a pretty cool hit. Also happy with getting jersey cards of LeBron and Kawhi. I got two low serial numbered autos just not of anyone notable. Best auto was probably the Xavier McDaniel one, which I like because I don't have an auto of him and I remember "hating" him as a kid when I was a Bulls fan because he played for the Knicks so it brings back memories. Again like most older Panini products, these are much better breaks at drastically reduced prices and even then, you might be a little disappointed. I just like ripping packs and as I build my collection, I'm not looking to sell that often, so if still pull good cards of Wade, LeBron, Kawhi, and DeRozan, I'm pretty happy with that plus the entertainment value. Again, if you're a basketball fan and just want to rip something cheap and get 4 guaranteed hits you should definitely try at least a box of this at 30 bucks a pop. Here are pics of the cards
