Unlike the previous two Super Bowls where I stressed most of the game, yesterday’s game I was able to just sit back and relax. I was not rooting for either team so no matter what it was a win-win for me. The only thing that I had in the back of my mind was how my Sports Cards Super Bowl prediction was doing and how freaky was it that heading in to the 4th Quarter the score was 16-7 with the Broncos on top? This prediction was the closest the cards have come; maybe next year I will get at least one of the scores correct.
Now it is time to see All That Is Left VI
This year I pulled a couple of decent cards and even three hits. The blasters I grabbed each promised one rookie relic card but I pulled a Rookie Ink autograph out of the Panini Contenders box.
Here is what came from the Topps Chrome blaster:
A Calvin Johnson Refractor
One of the best receivers of this NFL’s generation who is expected to retire shortly
A Blue Wave Refractor Ameer Abdullah and a Green Refractor Josh HarperThe Blue Wave Refractors are 1 per Hobby Box so a nice pull there and Abdullah had a decent season and with Johnson leaving he can pick up receptions. Harper on the other hand isn’t even on a team, he was undrafted and signed with the Raiders but was waived before the season even began
A 1989 Topps Super Rookie from my favorite team
I finish off the Topps Chrome box with the Walmart Exclusive Rookie Relic card. I pulled Chicago Bears rookie Jeremy Langford. This is some sort of parallel of the base card, it is purplish and #/75 where the base versions are not numbered.
Here is what came from the Panini Contenders blaster:
A triple threat of Seahawks and it is expected to see Lynch retire soon too
You wonder if he is reconsidering that move to Philadelphia?
A Round Numbers die-cut of Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota
A Pennants die-cut Justin Forsett
A Rookie Ink Danny Shelton autographShelton is from the Seattle area and played at UW
Closing with my guaranteed Rookie Ticket Relic of DeVante ParkerLike the Topps Chrome guaranteed rookie relic I pulled another decent player but nothing special.
