Breaking Down the 2015 Weekly Bunt Insert Sets

I have always enjoyed the the weekly insert sets, especially because they are usually some of the better looking examples that maintain value through the year. That being said, with the Bunt design team now going above and beyond to create a number of good looking weekly sets too, its getting more complicated. Either way, the weekly sets remain the cream of the crop.

2015 Signature Series

When I first saw the design that was previewed on Instagram the day before launch, I was surprised with the direction they went for the card. I thought that the 2014 sig design was incredible, and this year’s was a completely different direction. I do not like the separated area for the sig, as it actually hides the autograph more than accentuates it. Either way, its something we will have to deal with.

I really like this set a lot, as I have mentioned was due to my affinity for the 1985 football design that is used for this set. When it was first released, I thought there would be new designs each week, but it looks like they are sticking with 1985 for now. That is fine with me, as the player checklist makes this interesting more than anything. Higher card counts will hamper value, but these cards still trade well.

Fresh Faces

This set is supposed to commemorate players who have been in the league a while, and have moved on from previous locations. Although I think the design looks nice in a retro kind of way, the overall set theme is a bit weak in my opinion. I would have liked to see more of a focus on the younger players of the game instead of the older ones, as I think this year has some incredible talent at the gate.

Editors Choice

This year’s Editors Choice design is nothing short of awesome. Because of the white background, the player almost jumps off the card. Its a dynamic looking insert, and its a set that many people have collected now for a long time. Although some of the appeal is gone because the card counts are set, it still maintains a great reputation. Last year, there were some very rare examples because of the set format, but the lack of rarity is more than made up for with the cool look.

Players of the Week

I always love the players of the week, as I believe that it celebrates the pinnacle of what everyone wants in a performance for your deck. However, because the cards are relatively easy to obtain, the set value has diminished considerably. I remember this was also the case last year, as some of the cards were in the tens of thousands thanks to a packout in special offers. However, there were also ones that were crazy rare because they never were widely available. Things are open to that again this year, but so far, its been pretty easy. Great look to the cards though, as it is a transfer from the Huddle POTW cards during the playoffs.
