Card-Carrying Fans

November 11, 2007 9:00 PM

On Thanksgiving Day, those Dallas Cowboys fans who might not be able to watch the NFL Network because it hasn’t reached a carriage deal with Time Warner Cable still will be able to get a good look at the channel’s talent.

Football card company Donruss will hand out 20,000 free packs of Cowboys trading cards to fans attending the holiday game against the New York Jets at Texas Stadium.

Each pack includes one of four NFL Network announcer cards. While many fans already have seen cards of former NFL stars Deion Sanders and Marshall Faulk, it’s a unique chance to get “Total Access” host Rich Eisen in mint condition.

The packs also contain a schedule of the eight games being televised by NFL Network, including two other Cowboys matches.
