This has been a pretty interesting week for me. We had the massive snowstorm that literally snowed me in with waist high snow drifts. The Packers are in the Super Bowl on Sunday and so nothing could really bring me down. The highlight of my week though would be a random e-mail that I received. Throughout my series of LIVE blogs that I have been doing anytime Packer fullback John Kuhn gets the ball or runs in a touchdown I'm screaming "KKKKKUUUUUHHHHHNNNNN" all over the place. The great part is when you hear a "KKKKKUUUUUHHHHHNNNNN" during a Packer road game.
I've listed John as a player who's cards I collect but that's not really possible currently as he doesn't actually have any cards out from an NFL officailly licensed source. Which brings me to the e-mail I received this week from John Kuhn's father.
I imagine he found me through my non-stop Kuhn references during my LIVE blogs and he e-mailed me asking if I had any of his son's cards that he could buy. I didn't have any unfortunately and told him that there are few that exist and directed him to a couple of eBay auctions with custom cards or unlicensed sources.
Well, all that recently changed as Panini has issued John's first official card. It's a special Super Bowl cards and a few of them are finding their way onto eBay with prices around $30. Here's what the card looks like:
