COMC Frankenset Adds

005 - 2011 Certified - Tom Brady
The classic Patriot Pat throwbacks looking good on a cool red foil-y card

006 - 2017 Upper Deck CFL - Jovan Olafioye
The Alouettes came out with these in 2014 and wore them through 2017 (with a different helmet in 2018). The two tone helmet, the grey on grey and the weird wings on the shoulders and pants are a very weird look, forever documented on this card.

007 - 2001 UD MVP - Pat Tillman
No explication needed, if you don't know his story it's worth looking up.

058 - 2016 National Treasures - Jarvis Landry
I wanted to stay away from thick, high end cards, but I believe this is the only cardboard evidence of the Dolphins orange-on-orange color rush.

 060 - 2016 Absolute - Luke Kuechly
All Blue/Teal Color Rush.

093 - 2010 Topps Unrivaled - Dwayne Bowe
Throwback to the 1960-1962 Dallas Texas for the AFL's 50th Anniversary season in 2009.

105 - Collector's Edge Masters - Kerry Collins
After his very weird exit from Carolina, Collins played in 7 games with Saints to finish the 1998 season before going to the Giants in 1999.

124 - 2009 Jogo CFL - Randy Chevrier
Grey Cup celebrations are an easy add. Chevrier also had a pretty interesting career, from being drafted out of the Canadian College system by the Jaguars, to playing Long Snapper, Defensive and Offensive Line and winning 3 Grey Cups.

127 - 2004 Bowman - Sean Taylor
Photo from the 2004 Hall of Fame Game, Sean Taylor’s pro debut, when he had two interceptions, including a pick six.

130 - 2010 Gridiron Gear - John Carlson
My favorite of the modern Seahawks jerseys, only worn in 2009.

142 - 2005 UD Reflections - Jesse Lumsden
Looking like a star in the making coming out of Canadian College, spent time with the Seahawks and Redskins but never made a regular season roaster. He then struggled with injuries in the CFL and went on to be a bobsledder in the 2010, 2014 & 2018 Winter Olympics.

160 - 2018 Panini - Philip Rivers
Rivers rocking the San Diego Color Rush on one of my favorite recent designs, 2018 Panini.

170 - 2014 Prizm - Ace Sanders
Great shot of the Jags weird two tone helmet on a shiny card, also bonus points for being named "Ace". (Actually it is Tracy)

212 - 2004 Bowman - Wes Welker
So close to a zero year, Welker played one game with the Chargers after signing as an un-drafted free agent, then went on to catch 903 passes including 123 in 2009, make 5 Pro Bowls and was a 4x All Pro.

  1. Love the Tillman! He's definitely a hometown hero where I live.
