In my last post, I mentioned that I have begun a personal tradition of breaking some kind of cards on the last day of school. This year I picked up a blaster of 2018 Heritage, which I already posted, and a blaster of 2018 Score football. Let's have a gander at my first taste of football cards this year.
So, shall we see what my first football card box of 2018 brought me?
A wide-ranging checklist includes defenders who rarely get any love from card companies. And we have a center and a kicker spotting! Nowhere but Score can you find any of these players nowadays, except for Khalil Mack.
Lots of colorful inserts is another Score staple. Another kicker sighting here, and an insert no less! My wife can't stand cards, but I may just have to give her the Tucker, since she's had a celebrity crush on him since she saw the video of him singing. Rodgers is the last Packer from the box.
I pulled two each of two parallels--Gold and Scorecard--with Zeke being the obvious winner here.
If you were paying attention to the box, you noticed that it promises a hit. One autograph or memorabilia card per box. I fully expected a relic card, since that usually how blasters go.
In all, the box was what I expected. Lots of white, basic design, lots of cards, including some inserts. I may not have found a lot of star power, but I pulled some good rookies for my first cards of 2018 and beat the hit odds. It's a good way to end the school year.
