2019 Contenders Football

2019 Contenders Football:  I always look forward to these cards.  I know some get bored with the similar design over and over but I really like this years effort.  It's something about that circle with the team name and logo.  So simple but I really like it.  Christian McCaffrey is so good and deserves to lead this post off .
Contenders sets have a small base set size so the packs are usually pretty star packed.  This one is no different.
You won't find a ton of inserts but there were four in this pack.  I really like the inclusion of retired greats but wish we'd see them as part of the base set.  The Rookie of the Year card is simple but I like the design.  
The backs are very good though the lack of stats is always annoying.  Seems like they could throw some in there somewhere.  A duplicate of the front photo with the the photo's background added is nice.  Again we see the circle I like so much.
The numbers on the front of the card represent weight (section), height (row) and uniform number (seat).  Again I'm liking this design.  I know it is pretty simplistic but it works for me.
Another of the inserts.  It is a simple way to get a team's draft picks on cardboard.  I like it.  There will definitely be more of these packs in my future.

  1. I'm so stoked to watch some football today. Sure hope Wilson's Hawks are able to take down Kittle's Niners.

    1. Not looking good early but fingers crossed. It was fun watching LAC-KC as the announcers did play by play of the Mia-NE game at the end.

  2. I agree, this is one of the nicer Contenders designs. I like the circular logo and the overall clean look of the base cards.

  3. Very clean design. You'll see more of these at some point,
