Befitting his blog name, it started with a legend.

The other interesting thing is how empty the stands are behind him. I wonder where and when the photo was taken.
A second member of the Hall of Fame also lurked in the envelope.

In any case, I still love Newsome's playing career, and respect the job he has done in Baltimore, and love that I continue to see him in his Browns uniform on cardboard.
There was also a couple of nice shiny cards.

I love the look of the Blue Pulsar cards. It doesn't fit in with the color of the Browns uniforms, but I don't care. I like them.
When I opened the envelope I could have sworn that I already had the West card. Short of time at a card store or show, I probably would have passed on it figuring that I already had it. It looks just like so many other West autograph cards that I have from 2014.
Surprise! I needed it! Always room for one more autograph in the collection.
A couple of Gridiron Kings parallels of the current running backs.

I'm sure that Crowell and Johnson will be leaned on this Sunday when Cody Kessler gets his first start.
And finally, it finished with a former Browns quarterback.

Shane, thanks for the great cards! I keep looking at cards that I have put aside to send you. I should really get to that soon.
