I received the following:

This issue, US Olympic and Paralympic, is a pretty cool looking set of cards. I am not normally a fan of the artistic type cards - but these are executed well. The cards are bright for lack of a better term. The names are clear and the athlete's chosen sport is well defined. The cards have a glossy front and the reverse has a write up on the athlete and their career.
Gold medal parallels - 4x
Silver medal parallels - 12x
Bronze medal parallels - 24x
3 Event cards
2 Venue cards
1 Olympic history card
Relics / Auto
Steve Langston - Bobsled
This issue is a fun type issue. One can keep their cards handy when the Olympics come on the tube to determine if you have the Gold, Silver or Bronze parallel of the US athlete that wins the particular event. These could also be a teaching tool - not only for the young but for the older folks that are not familiar with a particular sport - for me - Skeleton....
One could also collect athletes from their state, city, school, or even by birthday... You will probably need some help to complete the gold medal set and the silver medal set - not quite so much on the bronze.
The auto card is designed well - blue Sharpee - sticker.
Overall grade A --- well done!
Go pick up several boxes and pull for the US to win all of the Gold medals!!!
