I can't get enough of this stuff. Up to 14 jumbo cases already and I still don't feel like quitting. So many great cards coming out of these cases. Very impressed with 2016!

Of course. The photography makes all the difference. The sparkle only matters to scrupulous collectors but an entirely different photo with small print run has appeal to a much wider audience.
