I have never ordered a box of football cards before so I thought I would try. I was stuck with deciding which box to pick….

Then I started to think that I really enjoy the Masterpieces Baseball sets. Why not try a 2008 Masterpieces Football box? Who know I could end up with a Joe Flacco or Ray Rice Rookie Autograph (ON CARD)? After thinking about this, the choice was simple… 2008 MASTERPIECES.

I got a lot of cool cards.

Black Border:

Red Border (/199):


Blue Border (/150):




We got down to the last pack. I started thinking to myself, the autograph better be in that pack. Since I had opened both relic card packs, I let my wife open the final pack and hopefully find the autograph. She did find an autograph and my jaw dropped when she showed it to me.

That’s right a PEYTON MANNING ON CARD AUTOGRAPH!!! I could not believe it. So happy to add this card to my collection. My wife is excited too!

    Wow, you pulled some great cards out of that box. I’m tempted now to pick up a box and I haven’t collected football for years, but Masterpieces are just such beautiful cards.

    Congrats to you and your wife. Nice box, great pulls.

    well done.
