Oh man! I want thhsi RG3 Prizm card! Problem is, there is only ONE sports card shop here for MILES and they don’t have any Prizm!! Next shop is 50 miles away! Oh Man oh man oh man! Just to be able to get ONE BOX of Prizm in hopes of landing this card! Oh man……..ugh! I want to open a Sports Card Shop here SO BAD!!! Thank you Sir Tracy for sharing 🙂 Panini Love! ” PANINI PACKS THE PUNCH!” in EVERY Product! So go out and BUY SOME PEOPLE!! 🙂
PLEASE tell me you will be printing these cards! I love the game-footage, RGIII-Prizm card…also in love with the Contenders design. Too bad Kinko’s won’t let me blow them up into poster size prints 🙁
We certainly will, Brother Sergio. Stay tuned.
I find it hard to believe this weeks results.
Who actually votes for these? This is nothing but a popularity contest at this point. No way does he deserve it over Russell Wilson and Andrew Luck this past week. What a joke! A sham..fraud..foul..injustice..ok I made my point. I have nothing against him but c’mon after what the others did on Sunday? I have lost all interest now in this as like in a couple other weeks where there should’ve been different winners… this was just the nail in the coffin. Alas a sad day in football.
This is a sham just like rookie of the year, rg3 didn’t do nearly the work of Wilson or luck, they should just call this the flashiest player award who let the run game do everything for him while he smiled and made himself look like the most important player on the team
Should of given it to Alfred Morris
He deserved it like David Wilson does this upcoming week 🙂
RG3 is a beast. I just worry about his health. Scrambling the way he does his body will have a hard time holding up.
He is clearly the top rookie based on this data. 6 wins including the last 3, pretty baller numbers!
