Five bucks, eighteen stacks Part 2
I don't do football. You know that. But this guy did. There wasn't much football in the lot, and most of it came from one set that'll be shown in an upcoming post.
I sorted these into two stacks, expecting more Topps Heritage, I suppose. There were 15 from the 2001 issue, including two Brett Favre and a New Age Performers insert (both seen in the scan).
There were five 1992 SkyBox cards, five 2001 Score Select cards, four 2001 Dynagons (Randy Moss), five 2001 SP Authentic, ten 2001 SPx, and 14 Upper Deck 2001 cards. Is it just me or does this 2001 football issue look a bit like 2007 Upper Deck baseball (or the other way around)?
There was a small collection of inserts, too. I'm not going to list them, partly because I don't know anything about some of them. Yes, I realize that Terrence Wilkins isn't an insert but the Crown Royale sets always look good.
As I said, there's a big stack of football left to come. From the looks of things here, it feels like the guy went into the card shop or Target, bought a pack of each product he could find, and left it at that. Or maybe he bought one of those value repacks, but since most of the baseball cards come from 2001 I doubt that was the case. We'll never know!
