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!
