Saints News 5/4/13: NFL Rookie Trading Card Preview Photos Are Out!

New, comments

A couple of days ago, NFL.com posted preview pics of NFL rookie trading cards from Score. In Vaccaro's you can't even see his tats, and you can hardly tell he has a mohawk/fro. LAME.

That's a 2013 Jets draft card, not a 2013 NFL rookie trading card!
