2007 SP Authentic Authentic Speed
Set size: 50 cards
Front Design: A color photo of the player is shown over a double ellipse design. The inner ellipse contains the background for the photo, while the outer ellipse has a closeup of the photo printed in a team color. The outer ellipse has a circle which holds the team logo; beneath that is the player's speed statistic (stolen bases). The set name and player name is in the lower left.
Back Design: The ellipse design repeats on the back with a short career highlights paragraph and a repeat of the player's speed statistic.
Parallels and Similars: The set has the same design as Authentic Power, issued in the same series (see yesterday's post). There are no actual parallels, relics, or autographs.
Distribution: Cards were inserted in 1:2 packs of 2007 SP Authentic. As such, each pack contained either an Authentic Speed or Authentic Power insert.
Thoughts: I might enjoy the Power version of the insert a little bit more because of the checklist - there are no players in this set that I collect.
