Start this post off by saying im in the middle when it comes to 2011 Prime Cuts Baseball. There seems to be alot of complaining about the prospect side of the product. I guess when you think of Prime Cuts as a product you think old school legends. Some people are getting some really terrible boxes. Like any other product there is hit and miss. Some people are striking out so bad on there box and getting like 15 dollars of value in there box. To defend Panini a little bit. To have really high end cut autos (Ty Cobb), and rare mem pieces (Shoeless Joe) they have to put out a lot of coin. So to make money as a company for every thousand they spend on high end they have to have a thousand spent on prospect autos. So in my opinion they have a set thats high risk high reward. Which will produce really high end hits. Some may sell for thousands. To put it in contrast take for example Museum Collection. You will get mostly pretty average hits. You will not get that wholly hell hit. It obviously worked in that product. Its like you can buy a Ferrari with your 250,000 or you can buy a BMW, Corvette, Viper, and Escalade for your 250,000. I hope that makes sense. Obviously that is one mans opinion. They wanted a grand slam! Who knows if this products prospect class lights it up a few years from now you're looking at a very sought after product. We only were able to get a snapshot of the product by opening three boxes. One box was pretty bad and the two others were amazing. Check out card below
As you can see that is one hell of a legend card its numbered to 25! In the same box we got a Jose Bautista on card nickname auto /25. So that box wouldve paid for itself and the bad box. The other 3 cards were a Kershaw jumbo jersey and 2 prospect autos. The last box of the break produced this crazy booklet
Junior is in the building! This one is numbered to 10 and is great. Bob went six to midnight when he got it! So we went 2 for 3 on boxes. My review is a little jaded. It all depends on what you get. I think all in all its a decent product. Beings that they dont have a license they made you kind of forget about it. They did a good job making sure it wasnt blatantly obvious like in 2011 Elite Baseball.
