With all my excitement over the base card design for this year’s Contenders football I forgot to post one of the inserts.

How could I forget this! These are pretty slick little inserts, what with their bad-ass die-cutting and whatnot.

Panini, and the other guys for that matter, has really been upping their die-cutting games lately.

There was a time when die-cutting was way overdone and then it went away for a while. Its return seems tempered and only being used here and there, so it really adds something to the sets.

The shield shape goes perfectly with the football/NFL theme. Well done.

My son likes these cards because he says they look like bullets.
