I've got lots of great COMC stuff to post soon, but before I do that I wanted to take care of a lingering project first: showing off the Michigan Football rookies I've accumulated from complete sets, trades, and purchases. I broke them down into eight manageable groups so that's how many posts you'll be seeing under this feature.
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.
Another ranked opponent, another dominating defensive performance, and another shutout! As I enjoy the afterglow of Michigan smothering Northwestern, let's have a look at some more Wolverine rookie cards. Today features another three-year span and 14 cards, but there's lots of variety with nine different players! Let's get down to it:
- Jason Avant (2006): Bowman; Fleer; Topps
- David Baas (2005): Sweet Spot
- Braylon Edwards (2005): Topps
- Drew Henson (2004): Topps; Topps Draft Picks and Prospects
- Marlin Jackson (2005): Topps Draft Picks and Prospects
- Bennie Joppru (2003): Sweet Spot
- Tim Massaquoi (2006): Bowman; Bowman Chrome
- Ernest Shazor (2005): Playoff Prestige
- Gabe Watson (2006): Bowman; Bowman Chrome
There's 14 more in the books with lots more to come!
