On the Sixth Day of Cardmas, My Mistress Gave To Me...

6 Drafty Crabtrees,

5 Colored Rings,
4 Hopping Hoopsters,
3 Boring Bowmans,
2 Chromey Footballs,
And A Value Pack of Topps Chrome.


Good ole Bowman Draft Football from 2009, featuring Michael Crabtree. 


I absolutely love the Marshawn Lynch card because he is holding the ball high and tight with three points of contact.  Ladies and gentlemen, that is how you carry.  Of course, with Bowman, you can expect a number of rookies in their college unis:


The two most notable would probably be Michael Oher (Top-Middle) and Arian Foster (Middle-Left). Of course, there were two junky Wahoos in there with Clint Sintim and Eugene Monroe.  I should note that Sintim and Monroe were a combined 0-8 against VT.  Geez Al Groh was a horrible coach.  UVA had a ridiculously talented group of players for several years that amounted to nothing.  Each pack had a red parallel, perfect for the holiday season:


...including another Panther for Colbey to drool over. Four of the six packs had inserts:


The Slaton will be going into my mentor's WVU collection.  Nothing too great came out of these packs, but they were still pretty solid.  I picked them out of Target's $1.59 box, so they didn't set me back a ton, either.

All those Crabtrees on the packs, and I didn't even get a card.  I'm cool with that.

Jonathan Stewart would be a starting RB on any other team.
