As I did last year on 2/14, I'm going to do a top 10 involving cards from my 2/14 collection. As with last year, this will also be thetop 10 cards that I couldn't have had last year. I'm also going to limit this to one card from each person, mainly as a way to prevent this from being half cards of Jadeveon Clowney.
And away we go!
Derek was near thr top last year with his super base card in Series 2. Not so much this year, but he was an All-Star and got your typical bland card to go with it. Still, getting two base cards and all the parallels gives me a lot of options when it comes to expanding his PC.
This probably should be higher, but I'm just not a big fan of soccer. Still, one of these should be on the list. I opted for this one over Edinson Cavani because I liked how the Argentinian jersey looked with the Prizm design.
#7 - J.J. Wilcox - Panini National Treasures - Only one card (and parallels) for this guy, who was a rookie in 13-14, and it was from a mega super high end set. And there's only about 150 or so total cards out there when numbering of this and its parallels are considered. Still, a nice deal at COMC makes this a new card for my collection.
#1 - Jadeveon Clowney - Certified - As soon I learned that there was a 2/14 baby among those likely to be very high in the draft this year, I had to get at least one relic and one auto of his cards. Seeing him go #1 worried me, but I figured that since he was defensive guy, prices would be reasonable enough. They really didn't drop as the year (and injuries) piled on. However, I jumped into a football random gorup break at mojobreak over at Black Friday, and the randomizer granted my wish with the Texans. And I was able to get both of my wanted cards combined on one. And it is a really nice 3 colour patch as well. I did see some similar ones going for about $40.00 for a one-colour patch, but upwards of $80.00 for 3-colours. And I even got a bonus Clowney (one that would have been Top 3) from the Black Friday packs that were included.
And there you have it. What do you think, sirs?
