I received a box of Absolute from Panini in addition to the Crown Royale. I will drop the complete reviews this week but I have to post one card today.
As my son would say, Boo-yah!
There is something so satisfying about pulling the card you are looking for. Before I even Busted the first pack I though “how cool would it be to get a Ponder RPM”. I opened the second pack and there he was, the NFC version numbered to 99.
Ponder lead the Vikes to a victory today and put up some decent numbers. Fellow rookie QB Cam Newton may have thrown more TDs but Chris got the W.
The card itself is really sweet. I am a huge fan of this years design, it is a big departure from the last few years. I like the landscape orientation and the colors look great. It’s a much softer looking design than in years past. I think the simple “Vikings” does a good job of balancing out the space where the auto goes on the signature versions.
This is hands down my favorite card of the year to date, from any company.
