Leonard Hankerson Swatch Card

Leonard Hankerson was a third-round draft pick of the Washington Redskins in 2011, and he made the team right away, playing in 4 games - 2 as a starter - with 13 receptions and 163 yards for an average of 12.5 per catch.

He got even better in 2012, playing in all 16 games, starting 5, and gaining 543 yards, for an average of 14.3 per catch. He also had his first three touchdowns.

Though he isn't the fastest runner, he rarely misses a catch, and I think eventually he can become a reliable 1000-yard man for a few seasons, especially on a team with standout quarterback Robert Griffin III.

So I was more than happy when I pulled this card out of a pack of Panini's 2011 Rookies And Stars Longevity (card #9 of the Freshman Orientation sub-set, serial numbered 133/249):

It features a patch that Panini guarantees is made of ''event-worn material''. It'd be kind of weird if it hadn't, but then again, Upper Deck has made some of those...
