For myself I ended up with five cards, all of which are Wolverines hits, so, not too shabby!:
Juwan Howard 2004-05 SP Game Used jerseyYou all know I'm not a big basketball guy, but Juwan was a pretty good player (as opposed to the jackass Chris Webber turned out to be) so I didn't mind plunking down a buck for this very nice Orlando blue jersey swatch. It's now my fourth hit of Howard in my basketball PC.
Mitch McGary 2014-15 Select Rookie Jersey Autographs jersey auto (#122/199)
Yeah, two basketball hits is even weirder, especially considering this one set me back something like $5, but McGary is a recent guy which means he's much more relevant to me (with all due respect to Howard's amazing Fab Fab exploits). He was also a mega recruit that had a hand in bringing Michigan Basketball back to respectability. While I'd still like to get a Michigan uni hit or two of him, I thought this auto/jersey would be a fun addition as my second of Mitch after this jersey.
Steve Breaston 2011 Topps Triple Threads Autographed Unity Relics Emerald jersey auto (#TTUAR3) (#08/50)
While flipping through a $2 box I was a bit surprised to find this Breaston auto/jersey as I think I've only really seen them online, mainly on COMC. I actually have four total versions of Steve's three cards in the Unity set, and this Emerald version of #3 goes along with the "base" version of that card I already owned; I have a version each of numbers 1 and 2 as well. While I'm not going out of my way to put all of them together I do try to pick them up when I see them, especially at this price!
This is the 23rd Breaston hit in my football PC and of those I now own six that are autographed relics.
Devin Gardner 2015 Panini Michigan Autographs auto
Devin may not be in the NFL right now but he did do a great job getting the crowd on its feet singing the fight song at Jim Harbaugh's surreal Signing of the Stars event a week ago. $4 sounded right to me for this excellent Michigan uni auto out of Panini's excellent Michigan set, which shows Gardner wearing the Tom Harmon legend's patch with his #98 jersey. I now own four hits of Gardner, and in each of them he appears in a Michigan uniform, a streak I hope to keep alive!
Chad Henne 2008 Donruss Threads Crown Autographs auto
Oddly enough I think this is a card I passed on last time, but I was in a better mood on Saturday and happily parted with $5 for this very cool die-cut signature card of my favorite QB to collect. Now that I'm going to be putting up an album with everything of his that I own (soon, I promise!) I'm even more motivated to find new stuff of Henne's I don't have, and hits are always a bonus. Speaking of those, Chad still dominates the football collection count at 89, with Jake Long's 74 a distant second.
In non-milestone-but-still-kind-of-interesting-numerically news, as of this post I own 1111 football hits. 2222 might take a lot longer to get to, so I'll celebrate something like this while I can!
I'll be back soon with more of the usual--football rookies and COMC pickups--soon.
