#PaniniPylon Prizm 1/1 – Brian Orakpo

I am going to break one of my rules and have multiple posts in one day in order to get a little caught up on the blogging.  I’ve been away from home and have had limited access to a computer the past few days as I was helping my move from San Antonio to Portland.  We had four full days of driving and managed to escape the flooding in Schertz and Cibolo to arrive safely on Tuesday evening.  Needless to say I was completely exhausted last night and the previous three nights…driving 10+ hours a day can do that to you!

The last piece of the of the Panini Pylon Prizm collection is one of my all time favorite Redskins, Brian Orakpo.

12 PP Brian Orakpo Pylon 1:1

‘Rak has been injured the last two seasons and missed all but two games last year with a muscle tear.  Here’s hoping this doesn’t become a recurring injury that limits him in the future.

This card went up for auction on the same day the Ryan Kerrigan card went up, so I had to double down and do some quick jumping from screen to screen in order to be the winner!  I had seen the upcoming auctions and knew this day was coming so I passed on the Fred Davis and Pierre Garcon cards in order to afford these two defensive linemen.  I would love to have gotten in on the Garçon card, but it went significantly higher than I thought it would and I just watched from the sidelines.  I also watched from the sidelines on the RG3 card as it went for an astounding $1200!  I guess that’s about right for a 1/1 parallel rookie card.  Wonder how much it would have gone for if it had an on card autograph penned to it?

Overall, I am really happy with the cards I won and would love to have pulled in the whole Redskin collection…but I am more than excited with what I did win.  If Panini does something similar to this again next year, I will no doubt be in line for the bidding.

-HTTR!
