The two cards below were picked up from an ebay purchase last week and i didn’t really look at them until i scanned them. Upon this additional inspection i noticed the word Rookie was different on each card and one was a sticker auto. I’m assuming the shorter print Hankerson card was issued prior to the design being refined and finalized so it could be signed in person. While the Niles Paul, not Paul Niles card was done later since it was a sticker card. Either way a little odd that the same card would have different designs…is it a lack of quality control from Panini, or was i duped?!?!!?
Both of these guys were drafted in the 2012 draft as receivers and have really caught on like the team would have liked. I’m expecting big things from both Hankerson and Paul though, especially since Niles has taken on the Rambo personality on his Twitter account. I’m sure this will no doubt carry on to the field as he grows in to his new Tight End position. With Niles, Fred Davis and Logan Paulson the TE position is looking really nice for next season…although, i will miss Captain Chaos Chris Cooley.
