I have to say, this is one great pack for me. The best vets are a trio of talented wideouts. The rookies, though. Two Packers, one of them being my man Jamaal Williams (J-Swag Daddy, to us BYU fans), the other being first rounder Kevin King. So far, Jamaal hasn't had too many snaps, and got hurt soon after getting a chance to step in for an injured Ty Montgomery. King has looked talented but raw, in my opinion, but I think the Packers have a good corner in the making.
Then we move to the inserts. Another Packer (score!), another Phenomenal Athlete for the insert set I'm chasing. I'm glad to see Todd Gurley returning to form, and I'm actually looking forward to seeing Trubisky, as soon as I stop giggling about the Bears' Mike Glennon venture.
This pack contained some really solid vets, but not guys who are at the top of many collectors' lists. Maybe I'm morbid, but the real interest for me was trying to see if JPP's missing finger was apparent. I believe that it is. The rookies include a couple of first rounders that I don't know too much about. The inserts are a mixed bag. Another DeShaun Watson insert, which is good, and another Phenomenal Athlete to get one closer to the set are the highlights. Devontae Booker in all his Ute gear will need to find a new home ASAP; maybe I'll find a Ute fan at the next card show who will take it off my hands in a trade.
So this is where I stand with my 2017 Prestige set build. At time of writing, I have 137 of the 200 base vets and 36 of the 100 rookies for 57.7% of the base set. The final 10 rookies are short prints, and one of those is Kareem Hunt, so they may be harder to track down. I'm chasing one insert set--Phenomenal Athletes--and I have 10 of the 42 in that set, or 23.8%. Needless to say, I have a bit of work to do. Fortunately, I'm not collecting any other 2017 set, so I can focus a little on this set.
Most of the inserts and parallels are available for trade, if anybody saw anything they liked.
