    Final Thoughts on 2010 Press Pass 8 Seconds;
    I never though in my 20+ years of collecting that I would ever open a box of cards that contained bull riders, bulls and such, but thanks to Press Pass, I have.

    Overall thought, I have to admit, I had fun opening this product. The photography used in this set was done very well. Nice Full color shots of the rider and the bulls all printed on the basic card stock. The whole base set, with the exception of the bulls, seem to be perfect for ttm autos if a sharpie is used (if not the autos will bubble).
    Speaking of autos, it was very nice to see ON CARD autographs… something that is rare since the invention of the sticker auto. There seem to be 3 tiers to the autographs.. Black which are unnumbered, Blue which are numbered to 75 and reds which are numbered to 25. There are also many different relics. As you can see we pulled shirts and jeans. There are also used ropes, dual relics and I have even heard of patch-like cards being pulled. Unfortunately, I cannot find the pack odds or other info on them.

    Nothing about this set needs to change. Usually you get a complete base set with 1 box, you get 3 nice autos AND 3 nice relics. The one suggestion I would suggest to press pass is the packs. Add more info to the set on them. Let the consumer know if there are parallels to the relic sets and such. Other then this, the product is perfect.


    Here's how I would rate this product;
    • Value = 4
    • Innovation = 4
    • Fun and Experience = 5
    • Rebuy Value = 3


    I rate this product an "B" for Press Pass

    While bull riding cards are definitley a niche product, Press Pass did a ridiculously amazing job on this set. It's such a well produced set that I'd be shocked if it didn't get people who don't follow the PBR to buy some of this. A great price with great odds per box.

    Great job, Press Pass! Another amazing looking product!

      Yeah I was surprised to see a set like this to come out. Even more surprised when I found myself reading the cards and having a blast opening this product. I even learned something from this set.. I never wanna ride the bull pictured above (Code Blue)...Rode 14 times and bucked off every rider in 4 seconds or less. And anything that weighs 1400 pounds I wanna remain friends with lol

            Gotta love that Flint Rasmussen card!! Press Pass out did themselves this time with the photography. It's the best I've ever seen in their products. I would give the product an A+ for Awesome.

                I sure wouldn't want the Bull called "Code Blue" mad at me either lol

                Great review Butch

                I do not trade nor buy at "eBay values", unless a card is so rare that it is unlisted.

                    This is seriously one of my favorite products we've done. I had never been to a PBR event before and was fortunate enough to get to go to the World Finals last year in Vegas. What an atmosphere and event. There is absolutely no down time in the event and I will be a fan of PBR forever now! If you have never been to an event, you should try and get to one!
