2014 Adventures in Repacks: Part 63 - 75 Football cards

I'm in auto post mode during Grey Cup weekend, so let's do a bunch of football posts in my absence. I'll start with a 75 card repack.
2008 Topps Chrome - Jeremy Shockey - First of the visible cards - nice and shiny to start. Visible refractors are always a good selling point for me.
2006 Topps - Kurt Warner
2009 Score - Aaron Kelly
2008 UD - Dustin Keller - I'm seeing a lot of this cheesy card in a repack. At least the crash pad is cropped out of this photo.
2008 Score - Fred Taylor
1990 Pro Set - Don Warren
1990 Pro Set - Timm Rosenbach
1991 Bowman - Vinnie Testaverde - Vinny on the front, but it reads Vinnie on the back.
1994 Pinnacle Gold Zone - Tyrone Hughes
1991 All World CFL - Dieter Brock
1993 UD - Troy Vincent
1991 Bowman - Dean Biasucci - Kicker card!
1994 Classic - Carolina Panthers - My favourite non-Bills card in this is a reproduction of the Charlotte Observer that announced the granting of the expansion franchise. I wish they'd cropped the front page a little tighter so you could try to read some more of the articles. I now want the Jaguars one too.
1991 Score - Mike Gann
1991 Topps - Pat Harlow
1992 Score - Joe Bowden
1991 Score - Eric Moten
1994 Classic - Kevin Greene
1991 Score - Lewis Billups
1996 Zenith - Brent Jones
1995 Classic - Chris Hudson
1990 Pro Set - Pete Stoyanovich - Another kicker!
1990 Pro Set - Wilber Marshall
1999 Topps - Ellis Johnson
1990 Pro Set - Michael Cofer
2002 Bowman - Omar Easy - I actually got an Omar Easy card from the COMC challenges when I was looking for NFL birthplaces that don't appear on too many NFL cards. In this case, Jamaica.
1998 Score - OJ McDuffie
1995 Skybox - Mark Bruener
1999 Bowman - Peter Boulware
1996 Action Packed - Jeff Blake - I had no idea that Action Packed cards were available in 1996.
1989 Pro Set - Erik McMillan
1989 Pro Set - John Rade
2008 Score - Gartrell Johnson - The last repack contained 5 Score rookie cards of guys no longer in the NFL. I did better on this one. Johnson and Ringer are no longer active, but the others are still on rosters.
2008 Score - Rey Maualuga
2008 Score - Eugene Monroe
2008 Score - Javon Ringer
2008 Score - Jared Cook
2011 UD U of Texas - Mike Baab
2005 Sweet Spot - Rudi Johnson - Visible card on the back.

2009 Absolute - Tom Brady - And the other front visible card. Trade bait for TMM is always a good pick up.
2010 Score - Matt Cassel
2011 Topps - Jimmy Smith
2010 Score - CJ Spiller - Bills content!
1994 UD SP - Darnay Scott
1994 UD SP - Derrick Thomas
2006 Ultra - Abdul Hodge
1995 Stadium Club - Bruce Smith - And more Bills content!
1994 Pinnacle - Jackie Harris - A definite contender for the best photograph in this repack. Fighting for every last inch with a pair of Cowboys draped all over him.
1993 Stadium Club - Richard Dent
1994 Fleer - Ricky Proehl
1991 Platinum - Andre Rison
1993 Collector's Edge - KC Chiefs Team
1994 Pinnacle - Herschel Walker - And in the same category as the Harris, Walker tries to make every inch count.
1991 Platinum - Merril Hoge - It gets hurt with its tie-in with Pro Set, but these Platinum cards are really nice with their full bleed photos.
1992 Pro Set - Ray Childress
1994 Topps - Randy Baldwin
1992 Score - Dave Waymer
1990 Aciton Packed - Brian Blades - 2 Action Packed in the same repack! WOO-HOO!
2000 Fleer Skybox - Steve Beuerlein
2001 Bowman - Moran Norris
1996 UD - Terry Glenn - Now this might be even cheesier than the Keller. Too bad there wasn't a brick wall or some railroad tracks there so he could really salute every yokel local band ever.
2001 Bowman - Jeff Lewis
2001 Bowman - Corey Alston
2011 Topps Super Bowl - Aaron Rodgers
2011 Topps Super Bowl - James Starks
2012 Leaf - Jacoby Harris
2008 Press Pass - Andre Woodson
2011 Topps - Ricky Williams
2011 Topps - Cedric Benson
2011 Topps - Willis McGahee
2011 Topps - TJ Ward
2011 Topps - Vince Wilfork - In the middle of the wall of 2011 Topps, here's 325 pounds (yeah, right!) of terror heading the way of an unfortunate Jet.
2011 Topps - Jason Snelling
2011 Topps - Brandon Meriweather
2011 Topps - Anquan Boldin
2011 Topps - DeSean Jackson
1974 Topps - Larry Stallings - I could actually see there was a 1974 card in this repack when I picked it up to look at the visible card on the back. I couldn't see who it was, but any nice vintage 70s card would have been a pleasant bonus as well.


2011 Score - Nnamdi Asomugha - And the visible card on the back.

Not too bad for a few bucks.
