I did it. I went on eBay and bought a Johnny Manziel rookie card after having no success trying to pull him from packs. I said I wouldn't do that in this story on the Johnny Manziel rookie card search, but I did. Like I stated in that article, I do not care for his character, but since he is the hottest thing in the hobby and the fact that I am a rookie card collector, I just needed one. Like I do with any rookie.
I picked up this Prestige rookie on eBay for less than $6 so it wasn't an overly huge investment, but at least I have one now.
