Football Contest: Week 2
Week 2's packs are all about Prestige. Included are: 3-2012 Prestige Retail Packs, 1-2012 Prestige Rack Pack, and 1-2009 Prestige Retail Pack. All in all, that's 86 cards. Most of the matchups in this week were determined just by base cards. There were some inserts, but not many. 2012 Prestige included some "Stars of the NFL":
and some "Prestigious Picks":
