My father-in-law knows I collect cards and I guess he's found a catalog that offers boxes of assorted cheap unopened packs for sale. Lately for birthdays and holidays they're his go to gift. You and I know that they're "junk wax" but it's the thought that counts.
I chose this pack more or less at random. There's nothing fancy here but the selection of players was better than I expected. Take a look.
I'm a Walter Payton fan and you can make great arguments for several others as the best running back of all time but this waterbug of a man is right up there. As a Bears fan I saw plenty of him. If this was the only recognizable player in the pack it would still be a good one. (Is that LT he's escaping from?)
Metcalf is still #13 on the all-time list for all purpose yards with 17,230. His record of 10 career punts returned for TD's was broken by Devin Hester.
Stevens was an Pro Bowl selection and Offensive Rookie of the Year in 1988.
Erik McMillan was a two time Pro Bowl selection, an honor his father Ernie earned four times.
Stark was a four time Pro Bowl selection. He's the last of the Baltimore Colts to retire.
Rich was a 5 time Pro Bowl selection and is #7 on the career list for punt yardage
"Thrill" Hill won two national championships at Miami.
