Show and Tell #32: Greats of the Game

Here's another great trade with reader Michel from Texas. I sent him some '91 Upper Deck football and he was going to send me some Fleer Greats of the Game from 2000. Along with the Greats, as usual Michel threw in some great Packers and other odds and ends.

2009 Bowman Chrome #6 Aaron Rodgers Refractor

Aaron's leading my fantasy football team to a 7-6 record...it's not really his fault though. Aaron's just been a rock. The two running backs I drafted, Brian Westbrook and Clinton Portis, have had both of their brains scrambled by concussions with Portis out for the year and Westbrook contemplating retirement.


2009 Topps Football #4 James Jones Gold #1425/2009


Some Topps base Packers that I didn't have yet.

2009 Topps #277 Aaron Kampman
2009 Topps #260 Greg Jennings


2009 Upper Deck SP Threads #82 Ryan Grant
2009 Donruss Threads #37 Ryan Grant

Grant is siting 69 yards short of 1,000 for the season and he should get it on Sunday as he's been averaging about 78 yards a game.

2008 Upper Deck Masterpieces #6 Bart Starr

I thought at first this card was just for the Ice Bowl but instead it's a Bart Starr card. It's a little odd to only see the top of the helmet and the back of the jersey for a player's card.


2005 Topps All-American #A-CCE Chuck Cecil Autograph

Although Chuck's not in the green and gold on this card, Chuck played for the Packers from '88-'92.


I enjoy the Magic set but this card looks like it sat in the front window of a store and got all yellowed.

2009 Topps Magic #M18 Dewey Defeats Truman


I'm not sure if words can describe how much I love these old time player sets. I even like those odd unlicensed sets made by candy companies, Kmart, Woolworth's, etc...

Michel sent me a good part of this set and I don't think I owned any of these cards before now.

2000 Fleer Greats of the Game #79 Carl Yastrzemski


2000 Fleer Greats of the Game #97 Vida Blue


2000 Fleer Greats of the Game #22 Paul Molitor


2000 Fleer Greats of the Game #7 Roger Maris

Who doesn't like a sweaty single season home run king? Fuck Barry and the asterisks!


2000 Fleer Greats of the Game #81 Jim Kaat


This is a neat little insert set in the series.

2000 Fleer Greats of the Game Retrospection #10 Roger Maris
2000 Fleer Greats of the Game Retrospection #4 Tom Seaver
2000 Fleer Greats of the Game Retrospection #12 Yogi Berra

Thanks Michel!
