  1. Hi, Just a question : why some teams are presented as “(city) and name” and some other just with the name?

  2. football checklist (ID 44151) » Likely because it is how the team designed the trademarked logo/font.

  3. two questions really one i have two andrew luck bowman cards each with two different background colors is that normal or is that a variation. second are the cards listed above the variations or what the normal ones look like ? Im guessing the variations are the rareties?

  4. jimmy (ID 47611) » The different colored backgrounds are parallels not variations. We’ve provided images and descriptions of the variations, which are rarer than the regular base cards. If the picture on your card doesn’t match the photo or description we’ve provided, it’s the regular card.

  5. Has there been any news on an actual print run for the short printed variations?
