Offering four autographs per box, 2022 Wild Card Auto Mania Pro-Look’s retail edition includes one magnetic case auto numbered to 10 or less and three snap case sealed autographs, of all of the young rookies and prospects in the football landscape.
Hot rookies Brock Purdy and Kenny Pickett join rookie to be CJ Stroud on the cover of the box.
The three autographs come from the Draft Stars list, while the fourth comes from the “Pro Look” uniform style. As I mentioned in an earlier box break, these are cards that utilize photos where the image doesn’t make it obvious that there are no team logos or trademarks.
These are currently running between $75 and $80 per box, so you have to hit something worthwhile to make this something other than a complete bust.
The box consists of four individual packs with each card coming in its own pack. Collectors get three red packs and one silver pack which is the short print auto.
The first auto we pulled was OL Ryan Van Demark. Van Demark, a UConn product, went undrafted but was most recently on the Buffalo Bills roster.
Our second pack featured a Kingsley Enagbare autograph. The South Carolina product may not be well known but the Green Bay Packers rookie linebacker did make some plays during the 2022 season, recording three sacks and 16 solo tackles.
We stayed on the defensive side of the ball with our third pack as we pulled an autograph of DB Nick Cross. Cross, a safety out of the University of Maryland, recorded 10 solo tackles for the Indianapolis Colts this past season.
Now, time for the big short autograph reveal. After a long drum roll, we ripped the pack open and pulled a #5/8 Jelani Woods Pro-Look autograph. The Indianapolis Colts tight end had a decent rookie season with 25 receptions for over 300 yards and three touchdowns.
Clearly, this was a pretty weak box break with not much star power. No Purdy, no Pickett and no Stroud. While $18-$19 or so per autograph doesn’t sound that bad, the market has a lot of draft type products now and signed cards of 2022 and ’23 draft picks are getting easier to find. In all honesty, every card we got here will go in our $5 box, and some will probably find their way to our dollar box.
