Well, in keeping wit the "'Tis the season" theme, Fuji also sent me some Wolverines whose sports are still going strong this time of year:
From college football, which is about to enter its pre-bowl game lull for a bit, we begin with LB Erick Anderson and LB Mike Evans, both of whom have appeared here (TK Legacy auto and RC, respectively). Then we have a pair featuring all-time great Desmond Howard, including a solo card plus one highlighting Des' Heisman victory (as well as that of QB Ty Detmer). OL Greg Skrepenak, who's also been featured here thanks to my pursuit of Wolverines RCs, rounds out the football bunch with a nice shot of his hand in the dirt.
The product was named Four Sport so it makes sense that hockey was included, and that gives us a card of former UM sniper Denny Felsner. I'll admit I didn't know much about the 90s LW since he played for the school before I was following that team, but once I looked him up I was duly impressed. In his four seasons in Ann Arbor he put up a prolific 139 goals and 261 points, including 40+ goals during his upperclassman years. While that didn't translate to a long NHL career--he saw action with the Blues in just 18 games over four seasons while netting a lone score--he's another good example of the kind of talent that's part of the program's history.
Mario Manningham. Michigan was well represented in this excellent product as it includes RCs of Manningham, Chad Henne, and Jake Long on its beautiful artistic design. And as always, blue is the best parallel color, obviously! This is definitely a fantastic addition of the former Super Bowl hero.
Again, Mark, thanks for filling up my mailbox with all of this Tigers/Wolverines goodness, and I look forward to returning the favor in time for Christmas!
