2009 Topps Magic #19

Type: Base Card
Acquired: Bought Online
I love this card! Again, we have another retro based set, but it works with the Auburn college vibes. The image on the front is classic and unique while the back of the card lacks a bit of what makes other cards great. It does however make up for this by giving us a fresh take on the card back by offering a trivia question, college info from Bo's career as a Tiger and a little map of where Auburn is located in the state of Alabama. Definitely something that I have never seen before on a Bo card! According to the instructions on the card, you are supposed to rub a coin on the bottom of the card to reveal the trivia answer, but I have no intention on doing so. Thanks to the modern convenience of Google, I was able to get an answer to the question of "Who are the only two Auburn players besides Bo (#34) to have their number retired?" The answer...1971 Heisman winner Pat Sullivan (#7) and All-American Terry Beasley (#88).
