Why do the Packers use Milwaukee as the background?
I was going to ask the same thing.
My guess is that Green Bay doesn’t really have much of a skyline other than Lambeau Field
Ahhh, that’s the Milwaukee’s skyline. When I saw the card my first thought is that Green Bay has changed a LOT since I lived there. lol
Nice looking cards!
woahh these are sweet
very sick looking set…much better crisper background than last years set….
These look so awesome!! Are there signed versions or memorabilia? This is by FAR the best looking insert set ever!!!! Of course I favor the Ahmad Bradshaw, but they all look great. This is a set that I would like to piece together! Way to go Panini! Two thumbs waaaaayyy high!
Very cool insert set, love the colors.
Cheesecake Factory, just to the right of Flacco.
