I like last years better as well, but the checklist is much better this year compared to last year in my opinion...

Sad that most of this years stars have basic 3 color 3 break patches...Last years patches were so much sicker!

Although the patches used in the two above cards are nice, I love the over all design of the Silhouettes, and I believe that letter patches should be reserved for whole letter cards. I think the team name and and player jersey number should be reserved for cut pieces of patch cards. It's just silly to me when they ruin a perfectly good letter and only put half, or 75% of it, whatever. The companies should take more care into making the cards. Even Panini, what they do with their Tags is just stupid imo. They should save full tags to make a full tag card. Makes no sense to me cutting then up into little pieces. Just my preference though...

I also like Silhouettes and I'm impressed with some of the players on the checklist.

However, the lack of foil hurts their design in my opinion. Great cards, but could be even greater.

Yeah if they would have added some foil they would have been better no doubt!....

I like both designs. The overall design of the 04-05 Exquisite is nicer but I do like the action shot they used in the Silo

I would much rather have 75% of a letter patch with multiple breaks then a basic 3 color 3 break patch card...... Especially from such a high end product...Why not do the same as last year?....I love this Kareem Silho i have from last year..Not a full letter but way better than a plain 3color 3break patch....Dont you agree?....

I'm guessing they're just constrained with the number of jerseys they have. Would be nice if they put the letters in everything but the numbers are the easiest way to make a jumbo patch - if they broke the numbers into small patches in their low end products, there would be a ton of one color patches.

The better patches do come from the letters
