2014 trade package #14: My Legendary Mistress

Easily one of the coolest banners you'll ever see
It was in November of 2013 that I last received a trade package from Adam of My Cardboard Mistress, but fortunately for me, the legendary Spankee decided to do something about that, and now I've got another great one to show off!

Leading off (baseball pun!) is this pair of 2013 A&Gs of two-time former Tiger Omar Infante.  The base card is actually an SP, which makes it a nice get, and the Mini is a mini and is therefore automatically cool.  These are actually the only baseball cards in the bunch...

Because the main draw was a complete set of 2011 UD College Football Legends!  This beautiful set calls back to the design of the extremely popular set of the same name that came out in 1997, and that ended up being a great choice.  The design is gorgeous, featuring action-packed color AND black-and-white photos atop a cool but simple bottom border that includes the player name and a small cropped version of the main photo.  As the name implies, all cards feature players in their college unis.

Adam busted more than a case of this late last year and remembered that I expressed interest in picking up a set from him.

I'm thrilled to pick it up, and really only have two complaints.  For one thing, where are all the Wolverines?!  Just one is represented.  And secondly, why bother including a group of 2011 rookies when you could have had room for more legends?  Not EVERY set has to include rookies.  Those small gripes aside, this is a beautiful set chock full of college stars, and I'm proudly adding it to my football collection.  Here's a look at the full set, with captions because the names are tough to read since the cards aren't the easiest in the world to scan:
Keith Jackson, Tommy McDonald, Willie Buchanon, Ron Yary, Tony Casillas, Steve Young, Jason White, Daryl Johnston, Troy Aikman

And as usual, while I'm at it, for completeness here's a back from Aaron Rodgers' card:

And amazingly that's not all!  Head over to TMM to see the Wolverine portion of this package as well.

Thanks as always for a fun-filled envelope, Adam!  Maybe you'll get a Hokie-filled package in return before much longer, who knows?  Readers, head over to My Cardboard Mistress for some great blogging, and don't forget to


  1. Glad you like them. So many good cards in that set.

    1. No argument here! Lots of great cards, other than the Buckeyes, Spartans, and Irish. Just a beautiful set, thanks again!

  2. You missed a Wolverine, btw...Warren Moon is owning one on his card...

    1. I DID miss that while counting up all the Hokies that aren't in this set

    2. We are proudly represented in the Bowl Game Heroes insert set on Jim Kelly and Aaron Rodgers cards. Who cares if those were losses. It's the thought that counts.
