  1. I opened 4 jumbo packs of this product and I am thoroughly pleased! I pulled an Albert Pujols all star jersey that I sold for $35 on Ebay and paid for all of the packs! I love the Turkey Red again, and now am going to buy a box on 07 TR!

    Also love the Propaganda inserts but I am with you, if they had figured out a way to make these look like they were made in the 1940’s I would have given them major props!
