2016 Panini Certified Football

 Ended up picking up a pack of this at my last LCS visit.  Not really a lot of Panini products I'd want to buy especially with the price point of a lot of these products.  This was not one of those product, but seeing no baseball I wanted to purchase this is the pack I chose.  My base..
 Silver Mirror Parallel...

 And a hit..
 Ah gotta love getting a 4th String quarterback.  But at least he's still on the roster. I guess it's better than a kick in the pants.

You sure about that?

The write-up on the back of the Hackenberg is magnificent. I don't think it could be less true if they said he designed the Washington Monument and wrote the "I Have a Dream" speech. The only people "drooling" about him are opposing teams that would get to play against him if enough disasters occurred that he had to start for the Jets. I literally can't stop laughing at them calling him "a gamer" and saying he "won't panic under duress." Whoever wrote that must have seen a youtube highlight reel that was the one play in college where he didn't screw up, looped for six straight hours.

Sometimes I think it would be interesting if the blurbs on the backs of trading cards were really honest, but the leagues would likely squash that in a hurry by pulling licenses.

"A practice-squad guy at best; likely only drafted because the GM owed someone in his family a favor. The kind of player you trade in for badges in Madden."
