6/2/18 card show report: winning and Wolverines

If you've made your way here from today's TMV post then you know I had another good day at the monthly card show--and a great day overall!

Besides getting to see my Tigers win plus winning a few bucks at the casino, I scored some fun Michigan Football inserts (and one sneaky base card) from the quarter boxes at the show:
For whatever reason parallels from Playoff's 2007 NFL Playoffs product figured heavily into my buying this month.  What can I say?  That's what the boxes had to offer!  The first two cards here star former Cardinals draftees Alan Branch and Steve Breaston, with the former being a Red Metalized (#275/399) parallel and the latter simply called Gold (#185/299).  Note that each Wolverine you're seeing from this product today is on a parallel of their RCs from that set.

A couple former QBs give us a quick break from those, with an airborne Todd Collins on 1995 Summit's Rookie Summit and coach Jim Harbaugh featured on what I totally forgot was actually the "base" version of 1997 Totally Certified (#1184/4999).

Old tackling machine LB David Harris finishes off the group with three cards of his own.  Two of those are from that Playoff product--the previously seen Gold (#185/299) and Red Metalized (#275/399) parallels--and to those I was happy to add a Blue Press Proof from 2016 Donruss.  That one's not numbered but that's fine because I really like the product's design anyway.
PC guy Denard Robinson kicks off this group of the other four I came up with as he stars on a Rookie Die Cut insert from Topps' 2013 Strata.  It kind of looks like it should have a hole punched out on top so you can hang it from your Christmas tree.

Former star running back Tyrone Wheatley makes two appearances today.  The first is our second offering from 1995 Summit, and this time the insert is called "Backfield Stars".  Do you think Ty forgot that he's a back of the running variety and not a QB?  His other appearance is on the Platinum Blue parallel of 1997 Pinnacle Totally Certified (#1367/2499) which is an insert, unlike Harbaugh's card.

Last up for today is another former star defender on that 2007 Playoff product, but at least both the name and insert are different!  This is Steelers great LaMarr Woodley and a Red Holofoil insert (#071/125), the rarest of today's group.

That's it for this show but I have a bunch of great new additions arriving in the next day or so from COMC, so expect to see those as soon as I can get all ~150 total cards scanned and ready to show off on both blogs!
