Are you ready for some football?
Week 1, at time of hope and optimism, were every team coming into the game is in first place with an undefeated 0-0 record, and a time for me to post some cards that have been sitting in the scanned folder for far to long. Starting with a black bordered parallel ,numbered to 35, of Sean Taylor from 2004 Skybox LE. I have grown tired of die-cuts, but I actually like this set. I usually don't like training camp shots either, but the trees in the background make for a nice photo.
Lorenzo Alexander made the Pro-Bowl as a special teamer, and I think this is the only Redskins card he has, from the higher end National Treasures line. After leaving Washington to go to Arizona, the Redskins had one the worst special teams units in the history of mankind last year.
Offensive line-man don't get much cardboard love anymore, so I couldn't pass up the chance to add an autograph of the Redskins top lineman Trent Williams, even if it is a ugly sticker.
and finally a framed acetate Champ Bailey from 1999 Absolute SSD, when everyone had an NFL license and there were it seemed like there was 150 brands every season.
