Bonus Redskins and a gift package

As I mentioned in the previous post Colbey from Cardboard Collections hooked me up with a few extra Redskin cards, which was very cool.  As I was flipping through the team bag of cards, I noticed most of the cards I do not have for my team sets, so they will be great additions.  Thank, Colbey!

Here is a peek at the cards that stood out for me.

09 TA Brian OrakpoThe Orakpo is really nice.  One of my favorite players on the team and a Rookie card to boot.  This one of those cards that i’ve never seen before either…so a really nice piece of cardboard.

09 SP Clinton Portis Jason CampbellNext is a couple of blasts from the not so far past.  SP Threads of Portis and Campbell…wish I had done a better job of aligning the card banding.

13 UD Robert Griffin III Football HeroesColbey also sent the two Griffin’s from this years Upper Deck set that I noticed on his blog…and really wanted for my RG3 personal collection.  Love the Baylor jerseys.

12 GG Moss Orakpo HankersonNext is a three card filmstrip of sorts of Moss, Orakpo and Hankerson.  I absolutely love the Orakpo photo…although it was used on the Topps issue as well…or at least the same pose…not really sure right now and too lazy to look it up.  The Hankerson card is a little disconcerting as it is cropped really poorly and he is chopped off at the ankles…not to mention the gigantic offensive lineman ass poking out from the right.  Ass.

09 DT Chris CooleyI’m ending with Captain Chaos, Chris Cooooooley because I don’t believe he will be back next year…and I hope he ends up retiring.  Can’t wait to watch him in the booth calling games in the future…or maybe he will become some crazy weed smoking hippy living in the hills and making pottery.

As I said, there were a lot of great cards and these were just a small handful of my favorites from Colbey.  Thanks again!

  1. Glad I could help. Of course as I buy more football I’ll make sure to set aside the ‘Skins for you.
