Gridiron Unwrapped – Reward Card Edition 11/25

YES! Its here. After weeks of waiting, the award cards are here! There were some big surprises this time around, including a 5x boost and a special design to signify the cards are rewards. I think that waiting definitely paid off.

Jordy Nelson Signature Series Reward

This is awesome. Nelson is not only at or near the top of every receiving category in the NFC, but he is on a team that is destined to make a long playoff run. Even though 5x is no longer the boost that it once was, it will still add tremendous value to this card. 73% of the people who pulled the lowest count sig (Luck), were able to complete the set, definitely above the 38% of the people who got Lynch the first time around. I am still happy though, as the 5x boost definitely makes up for it. The Gold is the icing on the cake, and I think a lot of people are goin going to be happy with this card.

Calvin Johnson POTW Reward

Megatron is always going to have name recognition, which applies here. Although he didnt have great weeks 6-10, he will be a valuable card for Turkey Day and coming up. The Lions are still primed to make a playoff push, and a 5x boost of their top receiver will be nice.

Tom Brady MNS Reward

Capture

Count: 73
Playability: football-helmet-psd42322football-helmet-psd42322football-helmet-psd42322football-helmet-psd42322
Collectability: Extreme

Gotta love this card, it looks awesome. Brady has been one of the top quarterbacks since week 2, and I am sure there are a lot of people who are beyond excited that he is the reward. As an MVP candidate whose team is going to be the number one seed, this card will be amazing at 5x in the playoffs.

Rob Gronkowski EC Reward

Count: 116
Playability: football-helmet-psd42322football-helmet-psd42322football-helmet-psd42322football-helmet-psd42322
Collectability: Extreme

The Pats are looking like the best team in the league right now, and Gronk is finally getting back to his normal evolved form. At 116, this is still a very nice card, and also means that like Nelson, a higher count was achieved because of the delayed timeframe. 58% of the people who got Denard Robinson got Gronk, but again, the 5x more than makes up for that.

Aaron Rodgers FC Reward

Count: 154
Playability: football-helmet-psd42322football-helmet-psd42322football-helmet-psd42322football-helmet-psd42322
Collectability: Extreme

Im pretty shocked at how low this card is. Many of the FC cards are still in packs, and to see that there are only 154 of these Rodgers is insane. Being that he is playing out of his mind right now, I think this was a huge win for the set card, as like Jordy, he will be a top player in the post season.

Ben Roethlisberger Golden Moments Reward

Count: 141
Playability: football-helmet-psd42322football-helmet-psd42322football-helmet-psd42322football-helmet-psd42322
Collectability: Extreme

I expected this count to be much lower, especially because Bradford was low count at 350. GMs had high coin bonuses almost from week 6 on, so I was expecting them to stay more spread out with people holding them. This is a good card to have at 5x, as the Steelers are still in the hunt and Ben can score like mad.

Odell Beckham Jr RS Award

IMG_0212

Count: 78
Playability: football-helmet-psd42322football-helmet-psd42322football-helmet-psd42322football-helmet-psd42322
Collectability: Extreme+

First off, I know this card was done ahead of his most recent performance. Secondly, this could not be more timely. Although he will not be in the playoffs, he has arguably become one of the most popular rookies in a very short period of time. At 5x this will be his highest boosted card. At 78, it is crazy low count. A recipe for success.

Dez Bryant Black VIP Pink Boost

Collectability: Extreme

When the VIP rewards were announced back in the beginning of November, people were livid that another black boost was going to be the reward. Well, they listened to our feedback and gave us a REALLY good pink card. The Bryant will be a very hard card to get, but should score some major points just in time for Thanksgiving.

Jamaal Charles VIP Valor 5x Boost

Count: 549

Collectability: Extreme

Gold getting a 5x boost? Awesome. That VIP boost is Jamaal Charles? Even more awesome. I think that Huddle has recognized the need to ensure that people get some make goods when things are relatively late, and this Charles card is definitely amazing. It not only looks cool, but is ultra playable at 5x. Well done.

I think we have all had a good week of huddle right? Cant wait to see what they have planned for Thursday.
