At Least There Was Something Worth Watching

Most people, including the players, do not take the Pro Bowl very seriously. There have been recent changes to make it more visible but it is still played in front of half-empty stadiums by players who are only there for a Hawaiian vacation and a bonus paycheck.
For decades companies have included Pro Bowl inserts and subsets in releases, including relics in some recent sets. While Pro Bowl sets do not really draw much attention outside some of the very limited cards there is one image that I hope makes it in to a set this year.
With 5 minutes left in the First Quarter Jeff Saturday switched over to the AFC team for one last snap to Peyton Manning. Jeff Saturday, who announced his retirement this weekend, spent 13 of his 14 seasons snapping the ball to Manning and since his first NFL snap was to Peyton Manning it seemed appropriate for Saturday’s final NFL snap also be to Peyton Manning.
