EA Sports Sends 'Madden' Stars Swanky '99 Club' Gift Box
Part of the dream of playing in the NFL is getting to be a playable character in the “Madden” video games. While there’s somewhat of a superstition about being on the cover of the game (the Madden Curse), getting a high rating in the game is a point of pride.
EA Sports is now taking it a step further, putting together a nice little gift package for exclusive members of the “99 Club,” the lucky and talented few who get the game’s highest player rating of 99.
The first inductee for the game’s latest edition was Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who was surprised by teammate Travis Kelce.

Within the branded wooden box, personalized with Mahomes’ name and “Welcome to the Club” branding, there’s some pretty glitzy jewelry from Jason of Beverly Hills with the number 99 on it, along with other 99 Club- specific gifts.
The full list of 99 Club members will be revealed today at some point, and there will no doubt be a flood of pictures and videos on social media where players are unboxing their jewelry.
Mahomes obviously has his Super Bowl ring from this past year, but adding some more exclusive custom jewelry to his collection is pretty nice, too.
