Continuing from yesterday, and it looks like my one guaranteed hit should be in this half-box, and there are still plenty of Browns to look for. Let's get to it!
74 Vic Beasley Jr. - Falcons
68 Joe Haden - Browns
63 Cecil Shorts III - Texans
116 Dre Kirkpatrick - Bengals
106 Tyler Eifert - Bengals
196 Von Miller - Broncos
Decorated 15 Emmitt Smith - Cowboys
Shining Armor parallel 293 Darron Lee - Jets
217 Emmanuel Ogbah - Browns
207 Sheldon Rankins - Saints
Well, two Browns in the first pack makes it a good start.
59 Kamar Aiken - Ravens
34 Matt Ryan - Falcons
187 Tavon Austin - Rams
179 Torrey Smith - 49ers
172 Jordan Matthews - Eagles
Knights of the Round Die-Cuts 12 Marshall Faulk - Rams
Royal Family 4 Sterling & Shannon Sharpe - Packers / Broncos
Sacrifice Die-Cut 52 Jason Witten - Cowboys (#/199)
297 Kamalei Correa - Ravens
288 Pharoh Cooper - Rams
Okay, this pack just threw the six base veteran cards out the window, but I don't think I should complain too much about getting an extra insert, and one that I hadn't seen yet.
26 Jeremy Langford - Bears
17 Ted Ginn Jr. - Panthers
7 Kelvin Benjamin - Panthers
166 Paul Posluszny - Jaguars
145 Randall Cobb - Packers
139 Jordan Reed - Redskins
Accolades 14 Aaron Rodgers - Packers
Knight's Templar parallel 267 Kevin Dodd - Titans
280 Christian Hackenberg - Jets
273 Malcolm Mitchell - Patriots
After the back-to-back Panthers was another blue bordered card for the Jaguars. At first I thought that I might have pulled three consecutive cards on one team.
58 Duke Johnson - Browns
56 Martellus Bennett - Patriots
19 Kenny Britt - Rams
181 Heath Miller - Steelers
174 Allen Hurns - Jaguars
168 Carson Palmer - Cardinals
Combine Champions 14 Braxton Miller - Texans
Shining Armor parallel 131 Richard Sherman - Seahawks
227 DeAndre Washington - Raiders
218 Jared Goff - Rams
I just had to show the Steelers uniform here. It bumps out the number one draft pick from the scan.
9 Chris Long - Patriots
99 Kirk Cousins - Redskins
90 Danny Woodhead - Chargers
163 Mike Wallace - Ravens
159 Carlos Hyde - 49ers
134 Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie - Giants
Decorated 14 Terrell Davis - Broncos
Knight's Templar parallel 173 Anthony Barr - Vikings
208 Su'a Cravens - Redskins
298 Demarcus Robinson - Chiefs
I do like the Chargers powder blue uniforms.
82 Darren McFadden - Cowboys
75 Golden Tate - Lions
69 Justin Forsett - Ravens
126 Sammy Watkins - Bills
117 Amari Cooper - Raiders
107 LeGarrette Blount - Patriots
Accolades 13 DeAngelo Hall - Redskins
Chainmail Armor parallel 141 Bobby Wagner - Seahawks
289 Dak Prescott - Cowboys
281 Nelson Spruce - Rams
I'm sure that Sammy Watkins is more frustrated than any Bills fan at his foot. With his talent, I hope that he gets and stays healthy.
I'm happy for Dak Prescott and the start to his career that he is having. He's lucky he didn't wind up behind the Browns O-Line.
64 Mohamed Sanu - Falcons
60 Melvin Gordon - Chargers
57 Tom Brady - Patriots
197 Aaron Donald - Rams
188 David Johnson - Cardinals
180 Andrew Luck - Colts
Legends of the Shield 14 Marcus Allen - Raiders
Sacrifice Die-Cut 134 Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie - Giants (#/199)
274 Connor Cook - Raiders
268 Leonte Carroo - Dolphins
I'm really surprised at the Cardinals offense this year. Johnson seems to be holding up his end.
One of my friends will be happy, I seem to pulling a lot of Raiders.
27 Josh Norman - Redskins
18 Emmanuel Sanders - Broncos
8 DeMarcus Ware - Broncos
173 Anthony Barr - Vikings
167 Malcolm Smith - Raiders
162 Reshad Jones - Dolphins
Combine Champions 15 Justin Simmons - Broncos
Blue Knight 42 Tony Romo - Cowboys (#/99)
263 Laquon Treadwell - Vikings
259 Kevin Hogan - Chiefs
Many people were surprised when the Panthers let Josh Norman go. He seems to be playing well in Washington.
Although Kevin Hogan is now a Brown, this card doesn't fit my Browns collection.
98 Jameis Winston - Buccaneers
89 Buck Allen - Ravens
81 Marshawn Lynch - Seahawks
140 Justin Houston - Chiefs
133 Teddy Bridgewater - Vikings
125 Eddie Lacy - Packers
Knight School 13 Ezekiel Elliott - Cowboys
Knight's Templar parallel 167 Malcolm Smith - Raiders
234 Jordan Howard - Bears
226 Vonn Bell - Saints
I figured that I had to include Marshawn Lynch in here, a true character in the game. I understood what he was trying to do with his press availabilities but thought he was a bit ridiculous with some of his antics.
97 Danny Amendola - Patriots
88 Josh McCown - Browns
80 Malcom Floyd - Chargers
132 Lamar Miller - Texans
124 Victor Cruz - Giants
115 Aaron Rodgers - Packers
Legends of the Shield 15 Eric Dickerson - Colts
Knight's Templar parallel 162 Reshad Jones - Dolphins
267 Kevin Dodd - Titans
262 Maliek Collins - Cowboys
The McCown card was the last of the veteran Browns needed for the base set. Still need a few rookies though.
It's funny, I rarely think of Dickerson as a Colt. I remember him with the Rams and Raiders. When I saw this card I went, "Oh, yeah."
73 Jadeveon Clowney - Texans
67 Julian Edelman - Patriots
62 Dez Bryant - Cowboys
105 Ezekial Ansah - Lions
195 Jonathan Stewart - Panthers
186 Demaryius Thomas - Broncos
Rookie Calligraphy RC-YN Yannick Ngakoue - Jaguars
Sacrifice Die-Cut 216 Jalen Ramsey - Jaguars (#/199)
240 Jacoby Brissett - Patriots
233 Chris Jones - Chiefs
My hit was found! And I much prefer an autograph over a relic. I'm not a Jaguars fan, but at least I pulled a rookie that is having a very good season. He has 6 sacks, 3 forced fumbles and 1 interception twelve games into his rookie season.
I can honestly say that I didn't remember my hit when I started scanning this box break. I remembered it wasn't from one of the favorite teams. It was summer, and to tell the truth I didn't know who this player was. It is nice when a forgotten hit turns out to be pretty nice.
40 Philip Rivers - Chargers
33 DeAndre Hopkins - Texans
25 Chris Ivory - Jaguars
178 Larry Fitzgerald - Cardinals
171 Karlos Williams - Bills
149 Pierre Garcon - Redskins
Combine Champions 16 Derrick Henry - Titans
Sacrifice Die-Cut 109 Matt Jones - Redskins
225 Vernon Hargreaves III - Buccaneers
216 Jalen Ramsey - Jaguars
It was nice to see Larry Fitzgerald move into the #3 spot on the all-time receptions list over the weekend. He's a great player that I will be happy to say that I saw play live.
Should I be surprised that Panini doesn't use the ç in Garçon?
Some good news before I look at the numbers from this half-box - no doubles in the box.
71/200 base veteran cards - giving me 143/200
24/100 base rookie cards - giving me 48/100
4/11 base Browns cards - giving me 7/11
2/20 Accolades insert set - giving me 4/20
3/20 Combine Champions insert set - giving me 5/20
2/20 Decorated insert set - giving me 4/20
1/15 Knight School insert set - giving me 3/15
1/40 Knights of the Round Die-Cut insert set - giving me 1/40
2/20 Legends of the Shield insert set - giving me 4/20
1/30 Rookie Calligraphy insert set - giving me 1/30
1/5 Royal Family insert set - giving me 2/5
Checking out the consecutive numbers from yesterday, the trend continued here. All of the inserts where I have multiple cards gave me sequential numbers from the checklist. I guess they can be more certain of their collation that way, but I would hate to wind up getting a whole box of duplicate inserts if that were to happen by doing it this way.
4 Sacrifice Die-Cut parallels (#/199) - giving me 8
4 Knight's Templar parallels, I think - giving me 8
1 Blue Knight parallel (#/99) -giving me 2
2 Shining Armor parallels, I think - giving me 4
1 Chainmail Armor parallel - giving me 2
As with most people, I have fun opening boxes. However, I really think I bought it more because I just wanted to open something this summer, not because I really needed to. Especially since it was a retail box, not a hobby box. As with a lot of other bloggers, and since I'm not trying to complete a set, I think that I'm better off just buying the Browns cards that I want at the various online sites.
