Mike Webster

I came across this Mike Webster PSA autographed 8 x 10 as a Buy It Now on Ebay and the price was right. He was a need for the Football HOF collection, so I jumped on it Mike is the 208th member I have a little over 60% of all HOFers.  Will be looking to add more in the near future.

Jack Christiansen

I purchased this JSA autographed picture of Detroit Lion Jack Christiansen from Ebay.  This is the 207th Football Hall of Famer in the collection. Jack was a member of the 1970 class and passed away in 1986.  So definitely not one I would be getting in person. Happy to have been able to add him.

Panini Rewards Points

I redeemed some Panini Rewards Points for 10 Cards.  I did it back in the beginning of March so took 2 months to complete from time of ordering.  Had to also pay for shipping & Handling which was $14 total now I knew why the package weighed 7 ounces and they shipped it as 3 pounds for $11.90 so roughly 3 times what it should have been but what the heck customer is paying I guess so they don't care, in addition that these are replacements for hits you should have received in the a box any cost is ridiculous IMO.  They also scotch taped each top-loader and a couple of the top-loaders used were too big for the card.  With all that said I'm happy with the cards I got and that they did finally arrive safely.  

1) Julius Thomas - 2014 Rookies & Stars Longevity Jersey/Auto #'d 20/25 # MS-JT.
