Here are some of this year's rookie autographs that I've bought before the season's opening kickoff.
I also have the regular Bowman Chrome refractor autograph to go with the blue one above. As a DT his cards were not that difficult to get. He is wearing 71 with the Browns so that part of the signature will change in the future.
I think I picked this one up at the same time as the Orchard one below. I understand all these players have so many autographs to sign but initials are just so boring.
At least there are some sort of squiggles after the initials.
This is one of four Mayle autographs that I picked up, including an autographed Leaf Clear printing plate. My roommate is a Washington State fan so I watched Mayle play quite a bit last year. I hope he does well in Dallas, but as a Browns draft pick these cards will stay in my collection.
This was pulled in a local store where the owner rightly suspected that I would want it. I think that Erving will have a good career, and many analysts figure he is insurance at C in case Alex Mack opts out after this year. I hope there is no need for him to start this year as that means there will have been no injuries and the line is playing well.
Now it is time to start working on getting some of the rookie autographs from the regular, non-college sets.
I'm still debating making the drive to Syracuse tomorrow for a card show. If I do, I'll be sure to post my thoughts and anything that I pick up.
