Show and Tell #14: Michel's Packers

Reader Michel and I have been sending cards back and forth for a little while now...his most recent package had a whole mess of Green Bay Packers.

#UDGJ-AK Aaron Kampman from Upper Deck 2008

Aaron's been the closest thing to Reggie White the Packers have had in a while although his 2008 season was not as strong as the '06 and '07 seasons when he had 15.5 and 12.5 sacks respectively.

#39 Mark Chmura from 1996 Donruss

I had completely forgotten about Mark Chmura until receiving this card. He one of the all-time d-bags not only in Packer history but the entire American history. In 1997, after the Packers won the Super Bowl, Chmura refused to meet President Clinton because he could not bare to shake his hand after the Monica Lewinsky scandal had been made public.

Three years later, Chmura was charged with having inappropriate sexual contact with a minor during a prom party he was at with his babysitter. Although he was found not guilty of the charge, he admitted to behavior that wasn't something a married man should do.
