    Looks nice but without borders it's going to be hard distinguishing between colored parallels.

    Here's hoping they don't use those color cones again. Not a fan.

    I like the base design, except for the wavy thing that partially covers the team logo and player name.

    The color parallels I don't care for at all, based on the pink example. I don't like how they wash out the background with color. The Independence Day parallel is just too much of an assault on the eyes.

    I like the few parallels I've seen

    But I do wonder how that wavy bar will translate to Chrome...

    Oh wow. So they're making the whole background colored. Would be interesting to see how they turn out in chrome.

    I really don't like the wave, especially how it covers part of the first letter.
    Besides the wave and logo, the two banners look too much like 1992 Fleer Ultra (a beautiful set, but too similar, even down to the small first name, and larger last name)

    I ran across some blasters last night and grabbed three. At first I saw two rainbow foil. When I looked back through them I saw a gold. Nothing else really special. Tons of inserts.

    Yeah, that waterslide has to go. I also immediately thought of the 1992 Ultra. I'm torn on the parallels, I like they are easy to distinguish but they are also visually difficult to process. Those patches will be difficult to distinguish between base and gold for the casual fan, so those could end up on eBay mismarked frequently.
