|2011 Obak Football - Morten Andersen - Green Parallel - #/25|
I love entering them.
I love hosting them (keep an eye out for the return of the "BIG PILE" contest this fall).
I especially love WINNING them. My online luck hasn't been great, but I have managed to win a few contests here and there...This is one of those stories.
Drew from Drew's Cards (naturally) had busted a box of 2011 Obak football, and was giving most of it away. He split the box into 5 chunks and randomed each one off separately. Not only did I win a chunk, I won THE CHUNK I WANTED -- "American Heroes and Best of the Rest." Why did I want this piece? Well...my main collections for football involve Kurt Warner and Kickers/Punters (see sidebar ----->), and this set netted me the Morten Andersen parallel above (#'d to 25), TWO Kurt Warners (regular and mini), and a Ray Guy. Yep...that hits almost everything I like. Too bad there wasn't a Tebow in this set. :-)

Running Backs with great nicknames and huge shoulder pads. I remember learning how to do the "Ickey Shuffle" when I was little. Man I was a cool kid.
A few modern guys. Dennis Byrd is the "Rise and Walk" player. They thought he would be paralyzed after a freak spinal injury, but he overcame that to walk again.
Quick question...which linemen would you rather face?
So thanks again, Drew, for the awesome contest. These will all find a great place in my collection.
