To recap: These are the cards I would take with me if I could take ten 9-card pages with me to Mars.
I decided that each part of my collection cannot have more than
one page. The cards must fit into a regulation page as far as height
and width but I am taking liberties with how thick some of the cards
And now for some good old American football:
1911 T51 Murad College Series
Michigan football. 'Nuff said.
1970 Kellogg's #13
This card represents three things in my sheet. Detroit Lions, Kellogg's cards and Blazing Saddles. I had forgotten that there was such thing as Kellogg's football cards until I found this at a show.
1993 Upper Deck #481
As far as I know, Robert is the only player from my high school ever featured on a card. Go Angoras!
1999 TK Legacy
TK Legacy produced a wonderful set of Michigan Wolverine stars. This is my only autograph from the set. If anyone out there has some regular cards or autos available for trade let me know.
2005 Topps All American #51
My all-time favorite athlete. This one has to be included because it has Herschel in his UGA uniform. My family had season tickets in 1980 and 1981 so I got to see Herschel play many times. He was simply awesome.
2008 Playoff Absolute Rookie Premiere Materials #20
With all due respect to Steve Bartkowski, Matt is the best QB in Falcon's history and maybe the Falcons best draft pick ever.
2008 Upper Deck Premier Rare Materials
This is the only memorabilia card I have of Herschel. I actually found myself rooting for the Cowboys the years that he was playing for them. Never before or since, however. Kind of like when Andruw Jones played for the Yankees or when Dominique Wilkins played for the Celtics.
2010 Sweet Spot Sweet Swatches #59
Another UGA representative, Matthew has closed the debate on whether he or Mark Sanchez was better. This is one of the few memorabilia or autograph sets that I am actively collecting.
2014 Sage Hit
Another great draft pick by the Falcons and I look forward to him anchoring the line for years to come. Jake is one of the main reasons that Johnny Football got so much time to run around at Texas A&M.
I was a big Steeler's fan in the 1970's but I don't have a card that stands out enough for his page.
So today, in the Falcons game, we learn that a 10 yard, incomplete, forward pass can be a fumble and be the difference in the game.
I watched very little of the NFL draft this year. It's not because I wasn't interested but I have regular shows that I watch on Thu...
Memorial Day weekend revolves around auto racing for me. Sunday is the greatest single day of the year with Monaco, the Indy 500 and the Na...
