1996 Score Football


It's a Football Sunday, so I thought I'd post a 20 year pack of football cards I picked up at a card show awhile back. Because, y'know, football.


38 - Mike Morris - Serious football guy.


88 - Kevin Greene - Remember when they put stats on the back of cards? Score remembers.


3 - Kordell Stewart - Back-to-back Steelers. Stewart was a bit of a star for a time there because of his versatility.


57 - Mario Bates - The design is somewhat similar to Score's baseball effort from the same year, but I think this looks better.


11 - Tony Boselli - The Jaguars were still a brand new franchise at this point. They still haven't figured out how to win.


55 - Chris Warren - Here's a name from the past that I totally forgot about. He was a big deal in the Pacific NW for awhile.


108 - Bill Brooks - Love the vertical shots.


185 - Neil O'Donnell Field Force - This is a 1:3 pack pull parallel where the card has a matte finish, similar to some of Fleer's mid-90s efforts. Neil is so mad he ended up in New Jersey that he smashed the football.


126 - Bernie Parmalee - I know this guy from Tecmo Super Bowl III.


180 - Garrison Hearst - Hearst became a star later in his career and then said some horrible stuff to the media.


133 - Cortez Kennedy - Big Seattle star and Hall of Fame inductee.


186 - Derrick Moore - Here's the other expansion team. They've fared a bit better, but have struggled since their Super Bowl loss earlier this year.


138 - Charles Johnson - Another Steeler. Generic name.


190 - Rob Johnson - You see teal, so it's probably a '90s expansion team.


 211 - Andre Hastings - So many Steelers.


152 - Charlie Garner - Here's a fave of mine. I miss these old Eagles jerseys.


256 - Eric Metcalf 2nd Effort - Metcalf was another versatile player, seen here coming off his lone 1000 yard receiving season.


233 - Daryl Gardener - Rookie Card Alert.


245 - Brett Favre 2nd Effort - I think he sells jeans or something?


222 - Bobby Engram - Engram went on to become one of Seattle's top receivers in the Matt Hasselbeck era.
