A while back, I picked up a few packs of random cards from the $1.59 Power Pack box at Target, including two packs each of 2008 Press Pass and Press Pass SE. I love college football, so I figured I would post the first two packs, regular Press Pass, on a college football saturday. VT is playing right now, and it seems our offensive coordinator wants our placekicker to have a career day, so we can't do jack in the red zone and come away with field goals. Anyway, it's coming up on halftime, so I figured I would make a post.
The first pack was okay, but the second was a huuuuge kick in the face for a VT fan.
Dan Connor Trophy Club Chuck Bednarik Award
University of Kentucky Teammates Andre Woodson and Keenan Burton
Chris Long Trophy Club Reflectors Ted Hendricks Award (I hate UVA...and we'll call this foreshadowing of pack 2)
Jonathan Stewart Power Pick (this is a pretty nice looking card)
Darren McFadden All-American
Matt Ryan All-American Reflectors (one of my most hated players of all-time, I was in Blacksburg when he burned us for two touchdowns in 2 minutes to win the game. I agree he is a very good player. I hate him. It's a nice looking card though.)
Chris Long Target Limited Edition AU #06/25 (yes, one of the biggest hits of my life, and it's a UVA guy. Another of this card went on ebay not too long ago. But, you'll notice that the one I pulled is not a standard signature. No, I got the extra special "C Long Go Hoos!" version. I'm not sure how many of the 25 of these are signed this way, but my guess is not many.)
So, I picked up 8 cards, where the three of the four best cards (and they are pretty damn good cards for $3 total) are of guys I hate. All of these are available.
