Earlier I wrote about my girlfriend and her first hobby box purchase, I'm extremely proud of her for her snap decision on purchasing something she would enjoying opening. Let's go to the cards and check out her favorite ones:
2009 Topps Mayo Football
Nice...even though he plays for the Giants I'm sure her soft spot for him has to be the fact he is a former Wisconsin Badger!
Ryan Grant, a powerful runner who seems to get better as the year goes on. I'm a huge fan because he is a former Golden Domer, and I'm a homer for Notre Dame!
Maurice Greene and her first hit! Gotta be happy with an autograph of a man who has won some medals!
One of her favorite Packers, Greg Jennings. This receiver came out of nowhere from a small college in Michigan and has solidified his #1 status in Green Bay.
Aaron Kampmann, the Jacksonville fans will love him. Probably won't find a harder working football player in the league, it's a shame the Packers played him out of position. Would have loved to keep him in Green Bay!
Her second hit...Heyward-Bey. What can you say about him?! Hopefully his hands can catch up to his feet and he turns into a good wideout in the NFL. Maybe a new quarterback in Campbell will make him better!
Finally...she purchased another card off a table and got a good price on it.
An Upper Deck Icons Jordy Nelson Autograph. Nelson and James Jones have been pushing Driver for more playing time, and the thought is he could really break out in the offense this year. With Rodgers spreading the ball out, his size and speed can help create match up problems for many teams!
Well, that is all for this post and card show loot. I'm extremely happy she wanted to share some of her favorite cards from her box break, even though I'm more of baseball guy it's neat seeing her excited about cracking wax. Check back soon for more card show loot she got, and for what I picked up!
