I haven't finished my Topps base set this year, but I'm at the point of diminishing returns, so I didn't feel like getting 90% dupes. I can't justify the price of Chrome, just not enough bang for my buck. So even though I wanted some Chrome, didn't buy that either.
Just as i was about to leave the card aisle empty handed, I spotted
Turns out I have a white bordered version of the Romo card, so I'm good.
I didn't realize until I got home
Let's see what's inside:
Three Cowboys. With 32 teams, I guess that's right what I should get. (edit: I checked. There's no Raiders, Patriots, Titans, or Bills in the repack. But 5 Bears) I'd have taken more. I'm pretty sure I have that Everson Walls, as I bought a fair number of 1989 Pro Set. I hadn't really been in football cards for a few years, but I spent a year or two buying football cards at the beginning of college. Shepard wasn't a Cowboy long, but I'll take any Cowboys I can get.
I would normally show you all the Redskins here, maybe throw in the 49ers, Eagles and Giants too. However, in light of recent events, the bad in this repack is apparently
Redskins could go here too...
Some of the Rest
I wasn't back into collecting yet in 2011, but I've liked this design on the baseball side. And while I think its rather weak to use the same design for both sports, I think the design works real well on the football side too.
I really don't have any desire to collect football cards other than maybe trying to complete some sets like 1982 and 1983, or start getting some vintage (I have a complete 1981 set).
On the other hand, I can't seem to get enough Cowboys cards. If anybody collects a particular team, I have a couple of other repacks so let me know.
