Got this gem off of the electronic bay for about $3 shipped. I think Panini has one photo of Chris Thompson and it’s of him stretching in sweats. This one is cropped so you think you’re getting something different…but you’re not…
I got some nice autographs! Wanna See!
I got a great deal on them…and really happy to jump on these cards before they go through the roof, because as we all know, the football team from Washington is going to be great once again! -HTTR!
I’m going to go alphabetically by first name, so the first player is Brandon Jenkins from Florida State University and his Bowman Chrome Refractor. The light in the scanner is making this thing look like a urine stained card…but trust me, it’s in mint condition and smells wonderful.
Next up, we have Chris Thompson, also from FSU (pronounced ay-fay-shu). Since Shanahan has been the head coach slash GM, the football team from Washington has tended to draft multiple players from the same school in their drafts. I have no idea if this is common place around the league since i tend to not pay too much attention to the other teams drafts…but it’s a little curious.
- 2010 – Perry Riley and Dennis Morris from LSU
- 2011 – Roy Helu, DeJon Gomes and Niles Paul from Nebraska
- 2012 – Josh LeRibeus and Richard Crawford from SMU (Aldrick Robinson from the 2011 draft)
- 2013 – Chris Thompson and Brandon Jenkins from Florida State
The next couple of guys will hopefully have a huge impact this season. Jawan Jamison and Jordan Reed. Jamison is coming off a pretty solid career at Rutgers, but was injured in his last season. I guess he’s one of those big upside guys that you either hit a home run with or strike out with…but don’t lose too much in the loss.
Jordan Reed is quite intriguing. He has mentioned in the very recent past that Aaron Hernandez was a role model of his and someone that he looked up to while he was at Florida…kind of scary since the darkside of Hernandez is being peeled back each day and only getting worse. Let’s hope that Reed was only referencing Hernandez for his on-field abilities and not his propensity to murder people…allegedly…of course. Innocent until proven guilty.
