2019 Illusions Football: I'm not familiar with this brand but it is back. When I picked up the pack I had an idea I wouldn't like this thinking they'd be a design more in the mode of Panini Status Basketball. I was wrong and glad I was. The fronts are a bit shiny with a foil design and a color photo of the player and a different black and white photo in the background. Jimmy Garoppolo seems like a good start here with him and the 49ers taking on Minnesota this afternoon in the Division playoffs.
I am glad I picked these up. I'm liking them more and more.
Rookies make up a big part of the packs.
That's an orange parallel of Leightton Vander Esch. The backs are pretty minimal but I like that there is some color, a big logo and I've definitely seen worse write-ups. These continue to grow on me. The price point ($5.48) for just 20 cards is a bit tough but I'll definitely pick up more either in packs or individual cards.
BREAKDOWN:20 – Total Cards
