Review; One short print, two inserts, and three mini's. Not a 'hit' amongst the group. It happens. We open packs hoping for an auto, a refractor, a serial number, something that goes pop.
Then we get three basic packs and feel a bit let down. Why? I got a sweet Dan Marino. Shouldn't I be happy? Yes. I am being programmed to think that a great looking basic card isn't that great. Well, they are. They are mine. I got them in a pack of cards. It was fun sliding back the top card to reveal the next card in the little stack in the palm of my hand. I felt like a kid again. At least for a couple of minutes.
