This year will feature X-Fractor Fold-Out In The Name Letterman 1/1 Cards. Each letter in the book is autographed on patch.

This product is more mid-to-high end as it will contain 3 autographs and 3 memorabilia cards per box. However, the largest memorabilia checklist comes from single piece #/99 so there will be plenty of lesser hits in a product like this. The highlights are Babe Ruth, Barrack Obama, Abe Lincoln, Mickey Mantle autographs and cuts. Find the complete set checklist by clicking the link above.
This is an interesting set with each $250 pack containing either a Pre 1970 PSA 7 or higher card or a PSA/DNA Certified Autograph Card from Pre 1970. The cool thing is that a set like this is not watered down with minor stars ... 95% of the entire product are players in the baseball HOF.

The super premium product that football collectors wait an entire year for. This year's set features Mark Sanchez, Shonn Greene, Donald Brown and Matthew Stafford Autograph Jersey Rookie Cards. The Patch Auto versions are serial numbered to just #/99 making these very collectible. Making a return are the special 'bonus-packs' which will yield an Autograph Book Card this year.
SPx Hockey has the more 'traditional' SPx configuration with 5 Hits in 18 Packs instead of the Hit Per Pack as we have seen in the Football version.
