On The Hunt For Dak & Ezekial

I'm still trying to pull 2016 Rated Rookie cards of  Dak Prescott and Ezekial Elliott.I don't have a disposable income that would allow me to achieve this with a simple box break.I go the route I went as a kid  ,buying packs here and there.To me the reward is even bigger because of the odds. Ebay will be my last resort. The other day while out picking up some pet supplies for our new German Shepherd pup  ,I stumbled across the last two packs of 2016 Donruss and one straggling 52 card pack of Score football.No Dak or Ezekial,but a nice sneak peak at Score and some ok Donruss 2016 cards.

I haven't picked up a pack of Score anything since  1989 ,when It was only couple years old.And that was baseball. Their NFL cards have been out for a while now but this Is my first pack.They're decent looking cards  that get the limited foil treatment,but limited ca be a good thing.In this case It's just a couple of subtle lines above and underneath the players name,team and position.  

Score wouldn't be Score without the player photo on the backside ,even If It's the same as the pic on the front.  

Dang!I thought Karlos Williams would play a part In the Bills future running game,maybe even become their primary back.He's  been released by the Bills picked up by the Raiders and Is now serving a suspension.  

The lil meanie Suh  :(

RC's feature players In their college get ups.

A couple of nice inserts. 

This time around the Donruss packs yielded a little less than the first three I picked up a while back.I really dig the Bo Jackson,though.Such a nice card.Love the grey and black.

FY & RC - (B)

This crop of  FY/RC's  Isn't the best,but Isn't too shabby either. Beltran,Biggio and Boggs highlight this batch along with notable mentions Bonds,Bryant and Bumgarner. 

Maybe this guy has a bounce back left in em'.

Thanks to Beltran,Juan Lebron's rc Is a pretty popular one .I love this Fleer Tradtition  card with the  simple words "Rookie"   written In foil across a foil baseball overhead his name ,which Is also In foil inside of a top loader with the words "ROOKIE CARD" written in foil across the top.Funny thing Is,I'm not  even sure  this Is  his  true Fleer Tradition rookie card. If It Is,then the foil does not fib.  

Remember the Kyle Blanks craze?This guy's Tony Clark tall,maybe even taller and weighs 265!He could still make some noise with some playing time. 

Michael Burgess was going to be the next big thing In baseball.Flashing prodigious power In high school but none at the big league level.

Madison Bumgarner beat us In 2016 ,In a one game wild card playoff.  

Billy Butler's first and last name start with the letter B. 

And here's everything you need to know about

FY & RC's (A)

I've got a couple boxes of star cards    that I deemed slab worthy,alphabetically ordered  by last name .Some of those stars also have a corresponding rookie or first year cards to go along with their veteran cards.I'll be posting those here sporadically ,starting with those players  who's last names start with the letter A. Ready?Begin....

                     I thought I had more A's than this?Actually I do, just not slabbed.

Tragic what happened to Adenhart :(  This card will always be iconic to me.
