Default 2013 Absolute: Garbage

wow. I bought a few rack packs as I am bound to every new product.
This is atrocious. The design, while awful, is the least of their offenses.

every single card has ragged edges (I mean genuine feathering)

pulled an Eddie Lacy Spectrum Red RC...three bad corners and the aformentioned ragged edges.

Unless you have the card 2 inches or less from face...can't see any foil...
Foil, especially red is well,...lost in the sauce.

I collect packers and this card is so damn ugly, I can't look at it.
Get a BLADE, Panini, you seem to be really into die-cuts, so fix this crap.

I haven't even seen a "hit" from the product so there may be some form of redemption...we'll see.

Thats the thing absolute retail has always sucked its never been to good other then 2010 retail had some nice hits in it. If your looking for shiny and nice hits hobby is the way to go half the cards in retail will be jacked up from careless people grabbing packs and kids messing with them.

My feelings are mixed. I don't care for the design. However, it does look very different from the other cards, and when you have 1000+ cards of any player, different is good. I showed a friend my /10 Gonzo cards, and he liked the design, so not sure how the general card collecting public thinks there. I did see dozens of complaints on Prizm, not being different. We can't really have it both ways with all issues I suppose.

My biggest dislike, is Absolute use to be such a great product, one of the better, and now I feel it isn't really any better or worst then say Prestige.

But I digress. I am also not sure what to think completely of last years cards, as a PC collector. Almost all the inserts were very low numbered and if there was another serious Gonzalez collector, I likely would only have a couple cards. Also the autos were redemptions, and I am almost certain, none have been redeemed yet.

We should not be moving into 2014 without 2012 auto redemptions filled of a fairly common autograph person.

On the bright side, the Retail Red and Blue Autographs are #/30, and aren't all that hard to pull odds wise.
