2019 Absolute Football: This is my first look at these cards and I think I like them. I will say I'm not a fan of the price point - you only get 20 cards in these packs. Still the unique football strings incorporated into the design is a nice touch and I like how the logos are placed. The photos are also pretty good. Tom "Terrific" is a great way to lead this pack off.
Barry Sanders! Nice appearance of one of the true all-time greats. Wish the photo took up a little more of that card but I'm still digging it. I like the photos on the Julio and JuJu photos.
The backs are fine though the fine print is small. This is the first Absolute set that shows the background in photos as opposed to some type of decorated background. I could be wrong as my experience with this brand only goes back to 2014.
I'm normally not a fan of backgrounds being muted but it does make these rookie cards stand out from the veteran base cards. Their names are also displayed normally as opposed to veteran cards - first last. How about the new NFL hotness Gardner Minshew II?
There are other inserts I didn't pull so there is more to this set. Overall I do like these cards but wish there were more per pack. I'll probably revisit this set again at some point though.
