2015 Fall Expo Goodies Part 3: 3 Downs. 1 Box.
At least this year, they are actually rookies. Last year, it also included guys just making their CFL debuts. So, that meant there were rookie cards of Steve Slaton, Chad Ocho Cinco and Troy Smith. Here you have a couple great names in Sukh Chungh and Shaquille Murray-Lawrence as well as Air Canada, Brandon Bridge. He's also a bit of rarity. Although he played in the NCAA, there have not been many Canadian QBs in the CFL.
8 OPC cards were in the box, as expected. I hadn't seen this portion of the checklist, so pulling a Jeff Garcia was a pleasant surprise.
The two promised relics. I didn't see any white relics last season, but they do make an appearance this year. Marauder remains the best French from English translation of a football position.
And I got a tough pull from this box! Autos fall at a rate of 1 per 96 packs, or every 4 boxes. I was really happy to see this pop out.
A really fun box of stuff from my favourite league!
But wait, there is still more!
Here's an auto of the aforementioned Brandon Bridge.
And Terrence Toliver, who made an appearance in the base set of the CFL, and is seen here in an on-card auto from 2011 Platinum. He's with my beloved Hamilton Tiger-Cats now, so grabbing a cheap autograph of him was an easy decision.
And there you have it!
