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.
I originally intended to do two more posts in this series but then I thought, why not finish it up so I can get on to the next thing? Therefore, I've split up the cards into two sections since that's how I had them scanned. Finishing with a bang, here's the rest of my original in-hand football RCs from 2008 and 2009-2015!
- Jamar Adams (2008): Topps
- Adrian Arrington (2008): Bowman; Bowman Chrome
- Shawn Crable (2008): Bowman; Topps; Upper Deck Heroes (#153); Upper Deck Heroes (#154)
- Mike Hart (2008): Bowman; Donruss Gridiron Gear
- Mike Hart (2008, cont.): SP Rookie Edition; Topps; Topps Rookie Progression; Upper Deck Heroes (#181); Upper Deck Heroes (#182)
- Chad Henne (2008): Bowman; SP Rookie Edition; Topps; Topps Rookie Progression
- Chad Henne (2008, cont.): Upper Deck; Upper Deck Heroes (#117); Upper Deck Heroes (#118)
- Jake Long (2008): Bowman; SP Rookie Edition; Topps; Topps Rookie Progression; Upper Deck Heroes (#151); Upper Deck Heroes (#152)
- Mario Manningham (2008): Bowman; SP Rookie Edition; Topps; UD Masterpieces; Upper Deck; Upper Deck Draft Edition; Upper Deck Heroes (#177); Upper Deck Heroes (#178)
That closes the book on my all-time favorite draft class, but here's a couple scans worth of issues of more recent players. These years produced a dearth of Michigan-to-NFL talent so there's not much to see!
- Devin Funchess (2015): Bowman
- Jeremy Gallon (2014): Upper Deck
- Brandon Graham (2010): Donruss Elite; Panini Threads; Score; Topps
- Tim Jamison (2009): Upper Deck Draft Edition
- Taylor Lewan (2014): Upper Deck
- Mike Martin (2012): SP Authentic
- David Molk (2012): SP Authentic
- Denard Robinson (2013): Panini Prizm; Topps
- Roy Roundtree (2013): Upper Deck
- Terrance Taylor (2009): Bowman Draft
- Morgan Trent (2009): Upper Deck
Now that this series is over I'll try to mix things up a bit with other content, though I'll have a number of similar posts thanks to large pickups from COMC and Sportlots!
