TCI's Notable of the Week - NFL Conference Round - Ray Lewis
Ray Lewis first appeared on cardboard in 1996, back when card collecting was facing a renaissance in which the landscape of collecting would change forever. Card products were on the cusp of low-numbered serial numbering and autographs/memorabilia cards were new to the hobby. Lewis has none of those card gimmicks for his rookie season, although he does have some tough parallels to chase in Bowman's Best with not only a refractor rookie card, but also an atomic refractor rookie card, which back in those days fell at a stingy 1 in 48 packs (that's one in every other box). He does have relatively easy to find rookie cards in 7 other products, so shop around and find your favorite.
