It’s time to get your hands on some JuJu Smith-Schuster football cards

The Pittsburgh Steelers may have found their newest star at wide receiver.

He’s JuJu Smith-Schuster and he racked up 193 receiving yards on just seven catches and scored a 97-yard touchdown on Sunday in a 20-15 win over Detroit.
