Besides the baseball stuff I posted from last month's show over on TMV this evening, I scored some pigskin pickups as well, some of which include some Michigan uniform action. Let's get down to it:
inserts. This Finest Moments card came out of 2008 Finest, and that set came with something like seven different Refractor parallels, plus autographed versions, Superfractors, and Plates! The 50-card set includes 2008 draftees Mike Hart, Chad Henne, Jake Long, and Mario Manningham, plus GOAT QB Tom Brady. This "base" version of Edwards notes his eight catch/146 yards/2 TD performance as Cleveland beat the Bengals 51-45 10 years ago. He'd finish the 2007 season with a career-high 16 TDs, then never approach double digits again.
Mike Hart made a couple appearances in Upper Deck's 2008 Draft Edition base set. That's where this one belongs even if the design, especially the foil, makes it look more like an insert. McFadden was obviously the more successful of the pair, but I'm glad that Hart appears to have transitioned well to coaching.
Charles Woodson! Ol' Chuck has made a nice number of base set appearances the last few years, especially thanks to Panini, who's included him in products such as Contenders and this one: 2016 Prizm Draft Picks. They combine older college photos with newer designs (and sometimes parallels and inserts!) and that's just fine by me since I can't ever get enough of a player like Woodson.
With this show stuff out of the way, will I finally get around to writing up some trade package posts? Stay tuned!
