NFL kickers finally get some cardboard loving!
So I was checking my e-mail this afternoon and I saw that Panini was finally giving some NFL kickers there well deserved place on cardboard! Not only are a few select kickers getting football cards - the cards will have the netting from behind the goal posts embedded in the cards!
I was looking a little closer at the memo and I saw a Carolina Panther?! John Kasey has to be one of the best NFL kickers in recent history and he only got a few cards in his long tenure with the Panthers. The Panthers cut him during the off season (ticking off a lot of long time fans might I add) and replaced him w/ Olindo Mare. Nothing against Mare - heck I knew nothing of the guy prior to this season. I however am happy to see my hometown team represented in this awesome Net Fusion set. This will be one card I'll be on the lookout for.
