Grade the Break - 2018 Stadium Club

Stadium Club is finally here! Since I was a kid, this was always my favorite set. The quality of photo and card has made this a hard set to top for me. Since they brought it back again in 2014 they have stuck to the same formula,. and added a nice checklist of old-timers. This set features a little bit of everything parallels, inserts, variations, autos, and good rookies. Stadium never features relics but that would be a cool to see down the road. I am quite disappointed that I didn't see the checklist of the set sooner, but I will be better prepared for the next Stadium Club breaks. There are a lot more of PROS than CONS to this product, and though our break was the best with what we got, I would open this product all day!

PROS

* Photography and types of images used are unlike any other card out there

* Top Rookies - Ohtani, Albies, Mejia, Hays, Verdugo, Robles, Hoskins, and Rosario

* Nice Inserts: Beam Team, Never Compromise, Power Zone, and Special Forces

* 2 Autos Promised - on-card autos, lots of rookies

* Lot's of Old-Timers

* Variations are tougher to get

* Good Value for the price point

* Stadium Club Chrome Parallels

CONS

* Variations are tougher to get (yes, this is a pro and a con)

* Lack of #'d cards (could be exclusive to our break)

* Too many teams that didn't have autos in the set

* Player and Team Names can be tough to read
