Just Larry, part 2

From a couple of different sources come 34 more Larry Fitzgerald cards to add to my fastest growing player collection, which now sits at 302 cards.

First, 25 cards from the 2nd Sportlots order from this week, a good mix of older base cards that I still needed...

It's very hard to tell, but the Topps Prime card in the middle row on the left is the Aqua parallel.  It looks more like a green parallel, but I'll take Topps' word for it.

Love the Football heroes card in the upper left corner.  First one of these I've had since I don't remember when (maybe early 90's)?  Lots of Topps and Upper Deck base cards here, and the next scan...

What I've noticed while collecting Larry Fitzgerald cards is that there will be lots of rainbows to chase.  I'm trying to knock down a lot of the base cards before hunting the parallels, which are usually pretty inexpensive. 

The next scan is part of a mega package that I received from now retired blogger Wes, whose swan song on the blogging front came in the form of a mega-mega break.  One of the teams that I picked was the Cardinals, and lo and behold I snagged a page's worth of cards.

Right in the middle is my 4th (?) jersey card of Fitz, a 2013 Donruss Elite Gridiron Gear #'d 165/199.  I'm already getting the Score Drive Team cards confused (bottom row middle).  It seems that there are two versions of this card featuring Fitz, one has Carson Palmer which you see above, the other features Kurt Warner and Edgerrin James, of which I have the base and yellow parallel.  Football products I guess can be just as confusing as baseball, if not more so.

I don't know how I'm going to get around to posting about the mega box of A&G cards that Wes sent my way, there was a ton of them!!  I'll figure it out somehow...

Thanks for reading!

  1. Seeing all of these well-cropped Larry's kinda makes me wanna go out and buy some football cards. That 2012 Score card is my favorite.
