Card of the Week: Hall of Fame Snub

So, last week was the Pro Football (read: NFL) Hall of Fame induction ceremony, and Hall of Fame game.  Inducted this year were Redskins Art Monk and Darrell Green, coach and player Emmitt Thomas, Patriot Andre Tippett, Viking/Bronco Gary Zimmerman, and probably the...

Card of the Week: Football & Screen Stars, Bubba Smith

On my way out the door for an extended weekend, but I wanted to get a post up before I left, since I haven’t had much going on lately. Getting back to the Football/Screen Stars themed Cards of the Week, this week featuring Charles Aaron...

Card of the Week: Football & Screen Stars, John Matuszak

All right, this week’s football player-turned-actor was on the front of last week’s cello pack of 1979 Topps, and correctly guessed (immediately) by Mitch in what turned out to be way too easy of a contest.  Sometime in the not too distant future, Mitch...

Card of the Week: Football & Screen Stars, Jim Brown

All right, should be some more posts this week, as a package arrived this afternoon.  More on that tomorrow, hopefully. This week’s Card of the Week honoring a football player who forged a career in acting is the man who started the trend of retiring early to do...

Card of the Week: Football & TV Stars, Fred Dryer

Continuing the theme from last week’s Gary Hogeboom card, this week’s football star turned actor is Fred Dryer. Dryer was a star at San Diego State University (a teammate of Rocky’s Carl Weathers) before being drafted in the first round by the New...

Card of the Week: 1987 Topps Gary Hogeboom

I’ve been reading a lot lately about football players wanting to become actors–Jason Taylor was on Dancing with the Stars, hoping to kick start a career in show business.  And Terrell Owens recently appeared on an episode of some ridiculous show starring...

Card of the Week: 2008 Press Pass

Well, we’re finally back–I think I got the image problem kind of fixed, although I don’t appear to have an actual templated page where the image resides now. I’ll have to keep looking for that. Decided to go with a 2008 card for card of the...

Card of the Week: Countdown to the Draft, Bonus Week

As mentioned last week, I miscounted when I started doing the Countdown to the Draft series–so, like all of the retail boxes I seem to love, you’re getting a bonus that really isn’t much of a bonus this week. I counted find any Mr. Irrelevant...

Card of the Week: Countdown to the Draft, Week 4

The good news: Week 4 of the Countdown to the Draft is here. The bad news: I miscounted, and there is still one more week before the draft–and I don’t have a Week 5 in mind yet.  I initially thought maybe I would do Mr. Irrelevant, but I’m not sure...

Card of the Week: Countdown to the Draft, Week 3

We’ve had the Workout Warrior, and the Draft Bust–so this week, we turn to the positive draft results–and probably one of my favorite guys to look for in the draft. This week is the Draft Day Steal, aka Steal of the Draft or SoD (thanks to the self...
