That XPonential insert of Albert Putta Playername looks nice. Other than that, it’s pretty much a re-hash of last year.

Can we please have Fleer Ultra back? Pretty please?

Hahahahaha, “Putta Playername.” This is exactly why newspapers preach to their designers NOT to use false headlines during mock-ups. Awesome.

By ther way, that brand sucks. It was bad last year and it looks bad this year. I’ll pass.
