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.
2) Calvin Pryor - 2014 Totally Certified #'d RP-CP.
3) T.J. Green - 2014 Preferred Rookie Color Guard# 285 #'d 10/49.
4) Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot - 2016-17 Spectra Jersey/Auto # 115 #'d 237/300
5) De'Anthony Thomas - 2014 Select Jersey/Auto # 217 #'d 145/149.
6) Tre Mason - 2014 Certified Patch # 240 #'d 141/699.
7) DeMarcus Walker - 2017 Contenders # 138. 
8) Reggie Ragland - 2016 Contenders # 178.
9) Andre Williams - 2014 Certified Patch # 2040 #'d 282/699. 
10) Zach Cunningham - 2017 Preferred # 10.

Ravens Trade # 6

I made a trade with fellow Ravens autographer Ryan we usually graph together at games and some functions through out the season.  He reached out I guess being at home he had time to organize and sent me link to pictures of his doubles.  I went through and found the following 69 cards to add to my collection in exchange for the same to his collection from my doubles so was a great deal both ways, always nice to turn doubles into singles. See the 5 pictures below for each of the cards I got in this deal.

BFG Prize

Last Friday night I played in John's BFG game on his blog and won the following cards that arrived in the mail today. See his blog to get in on the fun.
1) Oversize 1984 Donruss Dale Murphy
2) Mark Brunell 1996 Donruss IP autograph. (Note on Brunell he played a few times in Baltimore against the Ravens and I asked him towards end of his career to sign as he exited the tunnel, since he had been in town a few times and never stopped to sign he turned and yelled "And I never f@$&ing will"). So nice he he signed somewhere at sometime........
Thanks John!
