1996 Upper Deck Collector's Choice Update Football
March Madness may be in full effect, but I scanned this pack of football cards awhile back, so football is what you get. Football! Tough guys! Yeah!
U156 - Brian Milne - Boomer Esiason and Anthony Muñoz are some Bengals that I know. This guy isn't one of them.
U168 - Shawn Jefferson - This is back before they were the Hated Patriots and just the Unfortunate Patriots. They would make it to the Super Bowl for the second time this season, coming up short again.
U115 - Reggie Barlow - Here's a look at the backs of these cards. No one really remembers this, but Jacksonville made it to the playoffs a bunch of times in the '90s after making their debut in 1995. Now they are one of pro sports' worst franchises.
U140 - Eugene Robinson - Longtime Seahawk safety joined the Packers in their championship year.
U47 - Bryant Mix Rookie Collection - Upper Deck goes full bleed for these.
U72 - Brett Favre Franchise Play-Maker - Anyone know what play this is? Or how to run it?
U6 - Walt Harris Rookie Collection
U43 - Tedy Bruschi Rookie Collection - Bruschi would figure prominently into the Patriots future run of Super Bowl titles, but he was just a rookie here.
Y49 - Emmitt Smith You Make The Play - As mentioned on the wrapper, each pack contains two of these game cards.
Y49 - Marshall Faulk You Make The Play - I believe there's something like this in one of the MLB Collector's Choice sets as well, but I don't remember them being so... bright.
