I got even less cards in 2001 new. I think only a couple of packs' worth.
I really couldn't stand Press Pass at the time, and they were the only company to have the NASCAR license from 2001-current. However, when I got some of the cards later, I viewed them with less disdain than I once did. It was really two things- Press Pass only produced small sets, generally ignoring shots of the cars, and the crew chiefs and owners. That was, and to this day, remains my biggest problem with Press Pass. The other part was, the designs Press Pass was cranking out were not that great- even compared to card sets they themselves had issued just a few short years before.
