This card is so cool for so many reasons. The shoe piece is two colors, and really pops. It\’s rare – only 135 copies made. It\’s actually game worn, and has a picture on the back of the shoe like Donruss/Playoff used to do. And it\’s Terrell freakin\’ Davis, who was such a boss back in the day at RB. Love this card, and it\’s worth every penny of COMC credit I spent on it, however much that was many months ago.
The next card I grabbed doubles of, but it\’s because technically the cards are very different. Check \’em out:
Before Mike Jones tackled Kevin Dyson on the one yard line to win the 1999 Super Bowl, the Titans had some magic go in their favor with the Music City Miracle. Frank Wycheck got hold of a kick return, threw a crossfield overhand lateral to Dyson, and Dyson scored, allowing the Titans to advance.
It\’s one of the coolest plays I\’ve ever personally witnessed, and knew I had to have one of these cards when I realized it existed. And then when I saw there are versions signed by Dyson and versions signed by Wycheck, I had to have both. So now I do!
These next two cards are each the second patch card of their set in my collection. Aaron Sele\’s Mariners patch comes from the same set as my Greg Maddux one:
These both are awesome relic sets, so I need to see who else I can nab off the set list.
When Michael Sam first came out (both in the draft and as a homosexual), I was tempted to start a PC. I never did, but now his cards are crazy cheap so I built a little trifecta. First a patch card and an autograph:
And then two base rookies – one for each team he was on for good measure:
I also grabbed a Cleo Lemon #\’d RC:
One nice way to get cheap low-numbered cards of random guys is to chase Leaf Rookies and Stars parallels. It\’s kind of like Score parallels today where there were so many that they lost their value. Like this Keyaron Fox RC /25, a guy who I always used in late 00\’s Madden, was less than $1:
The final card of this package, and one that was long overdue, is a Chris Ogbonnaya RC autograph /699 from Bowman Sterling:
This is one of the few cases where a sticker auto works well, and I\’d long been considering an Ogbonnaya auto due to his past days as a Browns RB. He played RB during some dark days in Cleveland (though aren\’t they all dark?), but was always able to provide cool memories like the one below:
That\’ll do \’er for the randoms. PC posts will come eventually, and will include tons of Shyrone Stith progress, lots of Crowns, and a NEW SENECA WALLACE PICKuP! WOOHOO!
