*********************************

The All-Painted Series - most of these cards are pretty cool. The 12 artists who painted the series did a great job. I did not receive one in this box, but there are artist signed cards that are numbered to 10. That in itself is a reason to pick up several boxes.

Some of the renderings are much more dramatic than others - some have deep purple backgrounds and some with black - yet still others are extremely 'lifelike' in their appearance.

I like the inclusion of the Retired Stars in the set - pretty great to get a Ty Cobb or a Tris Speaker or a Pee Wee Reese card.

The best thing in this set are the autos!! They are on the card in blue Sharpee and they look fantastic!! THANK YOU TOPPS!!

I would have liked to receive a few more SP's per box - only 6 is rather 'tight.'

This box also rendered a printing plate - also very cool to pull.

Overall grade A+ --- great autos!!

Go buy several boxes and send the MLB leading Rays cards to me - GU and all!!

I have a small question. You state that there are variations for the cards. So i guess they are shorter prints. But with the short prints i pulled a #292 bazooka back and a 329 National Chicle back. Are these rare short..shorter prints?
Thanks
