I grabbed this pair of Michigan players (as usual) from a BlowoutCards forum for sale post. I had dealt with the seller before so I knew the guy was legit; unfortunately shipping took a LOT longer this time (this was a few weeks ago) for some reason--the crazy weather the last few weeks, the general incompetence of the USPS, or all of the above. Fortunately, they safely arrived in my mailbox yesterday. For $15 delivered I picked up this great duo:
Retail moratorium over:
I didn't actually impose a literal moratorium on buying retail stuff, but it had been quite a while since I bought blasters/packs at a store. While I was at Meijer yesterday, among other things I grabbed a blaster of 2009 Upper Deck Rookie Premiere football cards. It's basically a 30 card boxed set that also gives you a chance at an autograph. The set comes shrink-wrapped inside a way-too-big blaster box. I didn't pull an autograph, but I was happy with how the set looks and decided to present it here:
|Aaron Curry, Brandon Pettigrew, Brian Robiskie, Chris Wells, Darius Heyward-Bey, Deon Butler, Derrick Williams, Donald Brown, Hackeem Nicks|
|Jason Smith, Javon Ringer, Jeremy Maclin, Josh Freeman, Juaquin Iglesias, Kenny Britt, Knowshon Moreno, LeSean McCoy, Mark Sanchez|
|Matthew Stafford, Michael Crabtree, Mohamed Massaquoi, Nate Davis, Pat White, Patrick Turner, Percy Harvin, Ramses Barden, Rhett Bomar|
|Shonn Greene, Tyson Jackson, Checklist|
Not bad for $5. No Wolverines, but a good trio of Lions and overall a nice group of rookies with some cool photography.
Reminder: GSNHOF trade bait draft tonight:
I'll be there, of course, because I'm participating, but I still recommend non-participants check it out too because it could lead to lots of great deals with those that are. Check it out tonight at 7:30 EST.
