2014 Adventures in Repacks: Part 47: No '14 Topps, so 10 pack repack instead

I was hoping for some retail Topps Football today. Unfortunately, they still weren't on the shelf at either Wally World or Target. Therefore, opted for a 10 pack repack of football.

Packs in question in the repack (I'm assuming all are the retail version where applicable)

1990 Score Football S1
1991 Score Football S2
2007 Threads
2008 UD Rookie Exclusives Rack Pack
2009 Philadelphia (2 packs)
2010 Epix
2010 Absolute Memorabilia
2011 Press Pass
2011 Score

7 different years of product. Interesting.

I'll do the largest packs first, and bump off the 90s Score and the 2008 UD with my first go through.

1990 Score:

Vance Johnson - It is junk wax, but at least it is an interesting photo.
Reggie White
Rodney Peete
Cortez Kennedy
Jeff Alm - A 40 percent mortality rate is kinda depressing 5 cards into a pack.
Reggie Rembert
Alan Veingrad
Steve Walsh
Steve Grogan
Mark Kelso - A Bills card. WOO-HOO!
Super Bowl Trivia #18 - As usual with these, pick the guy you are least likely to have heard of.
Mark Collins
James Dixon
Rickey Dixon
John Settle
Jim Everett
Lorenzo White

A Bills card makes the dullest pack bearable.

John Grimsley
Tom Newberry
Kelvin Martin
Rich Gannon
Dennis Byrd
Ray Childress
Anthony Carter - At least one card in this repack can go to TMM.
Johnny Johnson - The Johnsons had 9 months and the best they could come up with was Johnny.
Mike Young
Curtis Duncan
Louis Lipps
Don Warren
Paul Skansi
Jamie Mueller - A Bills card. WOO-HOO!
Maurice Carthon
Chris Smith

Once again, the Bills card saves this from blandness.

And the Rookie Exclusives rack pack. Bring on artsy and/or ridiculous shots from the rookie premiere, college and training camps!
Jerome Felton - I'm just including this a sample of what the college shots are like. Pretty boring and not what you expect from UD.
Dustin Keller
Josh Johnson - I'm just including this a sample of what the camp shots are like. Pretty boring and not what you expect from UD.
Kevin O'Connell
Geno Hayes
Davone Bess
Jonathan Hefney
Marcus Monk
Chevis Jackson
Anthony Morelli
James Hardy - Even being a Bills can't save this ridiculous card. At least the gym mats are out of the frame. Pretty stupid and not what you expect from UD.
Eddie Royal
Dexter Jackson - And these are the artsy shots. They are more interesting than the others, but that's really not praise.
Leodis McKelvin
Jacob Tamme
Earl Bennett - See what I said about the gym mats?
Jerome Simpson - OK. This one I like. It has taken almost half the pack for a keeper (the Bills have been dupes)
Dallas Clark - Rookie Photo Shoot Flashback - Of course. Even the inserts are staged photos.
Allen Patrick
Jamaal Charles
Jeff Ainge
Bruce Davis
Justin Forsett
Quintin Demps - The favourite name in this part of the repack. Still really boring, though.
Phillip Merling
Jermichael Finley
Aqib Talib
Tashard Choice
Jacob Tamme - Dupes. This pack gets even worse.
Limas Sweed - He couldn't even make a CFL expansion team this past season.
Earl Bennett
Jake Long - They think this looks artsy. I think it makes Jake look 50 years old.
Jerome Simpson
Lawrence Jackson
Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie
Jeremy Shockey - RPSF - And it wraps up on a second gimmick insert.

P.U. all around for the left side of the repack.But, them's the chances you take with one of these. The rest coming up over the weekend.
