First thought: WTF?
Second thought: I got two versions of the same card in the same pack? What?
Third thought: This guy looks a lot like Richard Pryor!
Fourth thought: WTF?
Fifth thought: There is something goofy going on here. Then I turned it over and read the back.
Turns out, as I'm guessing everyone else was aware of, Leon Sandcastle is the creation of Deion Sanders for some sort of NFL Network promo commercial that ran during the Super Bowl. Since I don't watch much of the SB commercials and once the blackout occurred I lost interest anyway, I guess I missed it. I actually get the NFL Network but I don't ever watch except when they run games and sometimes the shortened game replays they run during the season.
Here's the back of the Sandcastle cards. Of course the text gives the joke away, more or less. I like how Panini lets us know that "This design is a tribute to the iconic 1989 Score design." I mean I like it, it's why I bought the pack, but whatever.
