Strategy cards were issued 2-per 1st Edition Starter (S1-S25) or Booster (S26-S50) packs. Each card features a specific football strategy to be used during game play as well as a color action photo taken during an NFL game. The cardbacks include a red border instead of black and are identical to the 2002 Strategy cards in terms of design. The copyright date on the fron however is 2001. We've noted below key players that can be identified on each card.
