Random Wax: 2017 Score Football

I haven't opened any 2017 Score football since they first came out so it was a nice surprise finding a discounted pack.  It was a fun break though I do have to say I was thinking it was a bit lackluster until I saw this Patrick Mahomes rookie.  He makes the pack though there is also a few good inserts.  
Again my pull was not overly exciting.  Adrian Peterson is definitely the best non-rookie base card I pulled and I'm always happy to see him in a pack.
I do really like the throwback Drive Team insert with PC guy John Elway.  That was a nice surprise.  I really don't like the Steelers' bumble bee unis but I like that Roethlisberger card for some reason.
Defensive backs don't get a lot of love on inserts so the No Fly Zone cards are a nice way of showcasing the defensive backfield stars around the league.
I get New Orleans wore all white for their color rush game but I would think the all color unis would be much better options for the Color Rush cards.  This card has too much white in it for my taste.  Overall a fun pack and I hope and I can find more of these.

  1. The Walmart that I go to always has Score products from various years on clearance. I've been tempted on more than one occasion, as I don't hate the look of them, I just don't think that there will be enough guys in there that I care about to warrant the purchase... even if it is heavily discounted.

    1. It is tough for some of the years. The chase for Mahomes is fun for packs from 2017. Score can be tough anyway just because the set is so big. Great for completists but it can make it tough on those just wanting to pull stars. Still at a discounted price I'm in!

  2. Overall it was a great pack of cards for being on the discount rack. I love the look of the Ben Roethlisberger insert card. I love the bumble bee uniforms.

    1. That Roethlisberger really is a nice card.
