  1. For Andrew Luck, why not just say grass stain vs no grass stain…

    For Doug Martin, towel vs no towel…

    For Isaiah Pead, white pants vs blue pants…

  2. I got a Reuben Randle short pring from retail.
    Are these supposed to be hobby only?

  3. Shockwave22 (Justin) ยป Not sure if they’re hobby-exclusive. Panini did say they were one per hobby box though.

  4. Ok Ty
