PAD Circus - 021 - Big. Fleer. Heroes.

Hello, everyone! First of all, THANK YOU for your continued support and understanding in regards to previous giveaways. Man, you folks have amazing compassion!

Second, going back through the cards from 2014 has been a very cool trip back in time. I had forgotten how many cool autos, game-used, and players we pulled. That Jim Rice autographed card is one of the coolest things ever - Congrats again to FDNY on that one! If you want to revisit that gem, the link is at the end of this post!

Third, let's rip some wax!! I am opening a pack of 1988 Topps Big, a pack of 1992 Fleer Ultra and a pack of 2013 Hometown Heroes. Let's get ripping:
