2018 Panini Prizm Football Red, White & Blue Bonus Pack


Hope everyone had a happy and productive Leap Day!  APTBNL has been around for the last 3 Leap Days and we are 3 for 3 for posting on this day!

I mentioned at the beginning of the month that I'd get to the Bonus Pack eventually.  Well, today's the (Leap) day:

Ah, the big yellow Wal-Mart Clearance sticker.  I decided a while back to get my football cards this way going forward (unless there's a Target sale).  I'm a passive football collector so there's no need to pay full price for packs, especially the chromey-kind.

The Bonus Pack comes in a plain white wrapper.  Here's what I got:

#250 - Leighton Vander Esch (RC)

Not a bad pull in getting a kinda-known rookie.  Here's the back:

The backs are as expected.  Even the "barbershop pole" parallels have boring backs.

#144 - Marquette King

Marquette punted for 6 years with Oakland and Denver.  This year he took his talents to the XFL's St. Louis Battlehawks.

#24 -  Chris Carson

Did today make you curious as to which pro-athletes were born on Leap Day?  Hope this helps!

Anyway, that's the pack, short and sweet.  Thanks for reading on this extra day!

These totally remind me of those 1990 Fleer Stars & Stripes football cards. As for a Leap Day post... I considered writing a post, but was way too lazy to dig up the cards. The link you shared was one of the links I found while thinking about my post.

Not a bad pull. Good post.
