Each post will include a range of one or more years, and the cards from that range are sorted alphabetically by each player's last name and then by set (uh, mostly--sometimes I goofed on "official" set titles and sorted accordingly). I'll list each player and card, plus anything done in this style indicates what I consider to be a Michigan uniform photo, regardless of airbrushing, etc.
Today's group spans 1989-1995, and that's seemingly a large range, but this is still pre-90s product explosion. Here's 14 rookies of eight total players from that era:
- Jarrod Bunch (1991): Pro Line Portraits; Pro Set; Topps; Ultra
- Todd Collins (1995): Collector's Choice
- John Elliott (1989): Topps
- Greg McMurtry (1990): Pro Set; Score
- Jamie Morris (1989): Topps
- Bubba Paris (1989): Topps
- Derrick Walker (1991): Fleer; Pro Set
- Tyrone Wheatley (1995): Action Packed Monday Night Football; (Playoff) Absolute
Big OL Bubba Paris, a winner of three rings, makes his first appearance on this blog since Kerry sent me something of his back in this March trade. Chargers TE Derrick Walker gets a double dip, and both of those came from Doug's early package linked above, leaving me short just his '91 UD card. Finally, keeping the offensive position streak intact is Michigan legend and new Wolverines RB coach Tyrone Wheatley on a rounded, embossed Action Packed card and a shiny foil Absolute card with a great college action photo.
That's it for today but check back soon for more rookies from this series!
