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.
