    Could you tell me how many STR's difference your husband shares with these Riddell matches and how many Riddell he has? It's possible that he an NPE Riddell, it's also possible that they are NPE's.

    Not good at this, but here's what I have: He has five First Step Matches (37 markers) and two are Riddell. I'm sure you can't tell anything from this, but thanks for responding anyway.

    Yeah, 37 markers is not close enough to suggest any sort of link. I would recommend that your husband orders the BIG Y and see where things go from there.
