Here’s another printing plate recently purchased by none other than me. It’s of Alfred Morris aka Alf aka Fromo aka the Butcher aka A-Train…and so on. H’e a really good player and I like him a lot. The kid is crazy modest and borderline impossible to tackle with your arms. Along with Garçon, he’s been one of the most consistent Redskins this season. He’s also been a guy that doesn’t go blabbing to the media about how certain players don’t say ‘I’ or ‘Me’ enough…but that’s another post.
Ok, so there is the card. A magenta printing plate. I don’t know about your collection, but the vast majority of the plates that i’ve come across are magenta. It’s almost like there are more of them, but of course that doesn’t make sense since they are all 1/1. Not like the magentas are in more packs…because, there’s only 1. Get it? I need to be on the lookout for a nice yellow printing plate. Let me know if you see one…A Redskin of course.
One thing about this lil piece of metal is that is slightly bent/rolled on the bottom with a slight dent on the bottom left. No matter. It’s a nice piece of metal from one of my new favorite players. I have so many favorite players…
Ok, it’s been a helluva long time since i posted. My absence is due to many reasons, one of them is of course the fact that my Redskins have tanked this season. I thought the first Eagles game was an aberration, but i was wrong…coincidentally, my last post was after the first game on Monday night. I’ve still been collecting and picking up new items…just inspired or motivated to scan and post them. But guess what bitches, i’m back!
As i may have mentioned in an earlier post, i’ve been on a printing plate binge of sorts. Focusing my collection on 1/1’s. Plus I like light gauges of metal in the colors of C-M-Y and K. Here is one plate that i recently picked up on the electronic bay. Jordan Reed. He’s Magenta, M in your 4-letter color coding system. It’s cool to turn the metal over and see ‘Congratulations’. Being an only child, i could never get enough accolades. So seeing it on a Redskins card is pretty awesome even I wasn’t the first person to see it, but you can see it right here!
Some of you fantasy leaguers out there should take note of this kid. He’s going to be something special. If only he can manage to stay healthy and on the field. Seems to be struggling with that so far. But i have high expectations for 2014. That will be the Redskins year. #HTTR
