Dear Panini, Let me introduce you to Adam Thielen
Well here we are, already several weeks into the NFL season. We've seen surprises from players coming out of nowhere to contribute, and, unfortunately players that were expected to dominate, not fairing off so well.
One player to have really stepped it up is Adam Thielen. In case you haven't heard of him, it's time to start watching.
But sadly, no one can collect his cards.
Why? Because not a SINGLE card has been made.
Now, I don't expect card companies to be on top of getting a card out there for every player, but I think it's time they decide to make one for the guy.
To give you the quick backstory, Adam Thielen has been a local boy in Minnesota from the get-go. He went to high school here, and played division II football at Minnesota State.
He came into the league in 2013 as an undrafted free agent to the Vikings.
Today, he is starting in place of the injured Stefon Diggs.
As a write this, the (undefeated) Vikings are in the 2nd quarter, and Adam Thielen has 3 catches for 66 yards and a touchdown.
I'm not calling him an all-star, but I've pulled some cards of some undrafted players who have not played a snap before, so how about getting an up-and-coming guy in some product?
Dear Panini, let me introduce you to Adam Thielen.
