User Comments

  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
