I saw that one guy who busted several boxes pulled an autograph of a recent Wolverine graduate, and after just a bit of haggling we came up with a price of $5.50 delivered, which it turns out is close to half what I would have paid on eBay, so woohoo to that! Here's what I scored this time:
Roy Roundtree 2013 Fleer Retro Fleer Rookie Sensations Autographs auto
Michigan uni hit FTW! Here's 'Tree in his #21 Desmond Howard Legends jersey tearing up Northwestern in 2012, which was a nice choice since he led both teams with five catches for 139 yards in Michigan's OT win (it's always close against the Wildcats for some reason; see: 2013). He went undrafted and signed with Cincy's practice squad, but that doesn't matter to me since I really wanted a card of Roundtree in the Maize & Blue anyway.
The set is a throwback to an insert from Fleer's '92 product, with the originals looking like this:
Upper Deck managed to capture the essence of its inspiration, including the football field background and tilted player photo, down to the "Rookie Sensations" logo and foil football. Pretty cool, I say! The rest of the product features some more great callbacks to past designs, such as the popular Precious Metal Gems, and I may have to track other Wolverines from the set down.
