This Monster Pull was part of a Layton Sports Cards 6 Hobby Box/Half Case Break of the ever alluring Panini Absolute. It was a GOLD Kaboom! of Justin Herbert numbered 4 out of 10 and it looked good. The guys at LSC wanted to spike the card like Herbie is spiking the ball on the card, but that would be a bad idea. A great Hit from a great Set, Kaboom! Indeed!
Justin Herbert graduated from the University of Oregon in 2019 with a degree in Science. The Academic All-American of the Year in both 2018 and 2019 was named 1st Team Academic All-American 3x, as well as being named MVP of the 2020 Rose Bowl. He was the first Duck to earn the Pac-12 Football Scholar-Athlete of the Year Award, AND he had a 4.1 GPA. Then came the 2020 NFL Draft, where the Chargers selected him 6th overall. It was time for Justin to put down the text books and pick up an NFL Playbook, and he has been electrifying Los Angeles ever since.
His talent, and cards, continue to gain value each week he’s on the field. In fact, in September of 2022, his 2020 National Treasures Platinum Shield Rookie Card sold for a whopping $1,800,000! Herbie’s career is just getting started in Los Angeles, and in the meantime it sure is fun watching him Charge up!
