Recent Sportlots orders: 1999 - 2007 cards

Continuing the cards from recent Sportlots orders, with these cards being from 1999 - 2007.

Top (l-r): 1999 Upper Deck Century Legends #166; 2001 Score Select #48
Bottom: 2000 Topps Gallery #63

I previously owned a parallel of the Jim Brown card. It is always nice to add the base card to a parallel.

The blue border on the Northcutt card has some chipping on the bottom. A little unfortunate, but not really that noticeable in the binder, and I have no problem paying $0.18 for it.

Even though the Kevin Johnson card came out before the Northcutt card, I figured by putting it on the bottom of the scan it would be close to the grouping of his other cards below.

Top (l-r): 2000 Bowman Chrome #29; 2001 Bowman Chrome #45
Bottom (l-r): 2001 Fleer Authority #30; 2001 Stadium Club #105

Stadium Club had great photos in football too!

Top: 2002 Donruss Elite #8
Bottom (l-r): 2001 Topps Archives #62; 2003 Donruss Gridiron Kings - Heritage Collection #HC22

When I manage to catch Browns pre-season games on tv with the Cleveland coverage, I enjoy listening to Tim Couch in the booth. Last Thursday's game had Couch in the booth, Bernie Kosar doing sideline commentary, and Joe Thomas as a special guest in the booth for the third quarter.

It is nice to pick up a couple of new Ozzie Newsome cards to my collection, including the Topps Archives reprint of his rookie card.

Top: 2002 Pacific Atomic - Countdown to Stardom #5
Bottom (l-r): 2003 Fleer Mystique #19 and #20

I don't know how many various insert cards that I have of William Green. I enjoy them, but there are so many. I guess that is what happens with a team's rookie running back.

Top (l-r): 2003 Topps Draft Picks and Prospects - Chrome Gold Refractors #85; 2003 Upper Deck Standing O #177
Bottom (l-r): 2004 Fleer Authentix #113 (#/750); 2004 Topps Draft Picks and Prospects #72

I'm sneaking in another Kevin Johnson card here. I previously owned the die-cut parallel of the football from this set.

I like the shiny refractor for the Quincy Morgan card, and the inset "ticket" on the Authentix Luke McCown card.

Top (l-r): 2004 Fleer Tradition - Blue #89; - Blue #100
Bottom (l-r): 2004 Fleer Tradition - Blue #130; - Green #167

As basic as they are, I love the colored parallels for the 2004 Fleer Tradition set.

L-R: 2004 Playoff Prime Signatures #24 (#/999); 2005 Donruss Gridiron Gear #125 (#/399)

Another Ozzie, and the beginning of a bunch of Charlie Frye cards.

Top: 2005 Donruss Throwback Threads - Rookie Hoggs #27 (#/750)
Bottom: 2005 Playoff Contenders - Legendary Contenders Green #10 (#/750)

I'm not going to complain about adding another Jim Brown card to my collection.

Top (l-r): 2005 Playoff Prestige - Draft Picks #DP3; 2005 Press Pass SE - Old School Collector's Series #OS9
Bottom (l-r): 2005 SAGE Hit - Autographs Silver #5; 2005 SAGE Hit - Reflectors Blue #R5

Here are a bunch of cards with Charlie Frye in his Akron Zips uniform. The autographed card was the most expensive card of this post at $3.00.

I've probably mentioned it before, but my roommate owns an Akron Zips baseball cap. When we stopped at a sporting goods store on a football trip to Cleveland, he wanted to buy a baseball cap, and really liked the look of the Zips caps. I don't really think he knew what it was beforehand but he likes it and still wears it a fair bit.

Top (l-r): 2005 SPx - Holoview #8; 2005 Topps Total - Silver #326
Bottom: 2005 Topps Total - Silver #139

I'm so happy that the Browns signed Phil Dawson to a one-day retirement contract. He deserves to retire with the Browns.

An interesting thing about his retirement contract - it was a legitimate contract, and they added him to a roster spot before he retired. It wasn't just a ceremonial contract. Now, from what I read, that also means that his rights stay with the Browns if he wants to come out of retirement.

Top (l-r): 2005 Score #68 and #71
Bottom (l-r): 2005 Topps Total - Silver #68; 2006 Topps Total - Red #204

It seems to always surprise me when I need Score base cards, although for cards where the player in the Browns uniform is listed with his new team, I can easily miss them.

Top: 2005 Topps Total - Silver #348
Middle: 2005 Topps Total - Silver #421
Bottom: 2006 Topps Total - Blue #353

I guess this is time to make my usual comment about loving Topps Total.

Adding the parallels of Michael Lehan, and Derrick Frost to their base cards removes both of them from the group of players that I only have one card of in my collection.

Top (l-r): 2005 Topps Turkey Red - Red #191; 2006 Finest - Refractors #91 (#/399)
Bottom (l-r): 2006 Leaf Rookies & Stars - Gold #26 (#/299); 2006 Playoff Prestige - Turning Pro #10

The red Charlie Frye parallel is a double. I thought I was ordering the base card. Oops.

Top (l-r): 2006 Topps DPP - Chrome Black #20; 2006 Topps DPP - Chrome Black Refractors #128
Bottom (l-r): 2006 Topps Turkey Red - Autographs Gray #TW; 2007 Leaf Certified #163 (#/1500)

The chrome black refractors seem to look so much better in the scans than they do in hand.

The Travis Wilson autograph was the most expensive card of this post at $2.49.

The total purchase cost for this scan was just a little more than a blaster at $23.31.


  1. The image on that Kevin Johnson Stadium Club is really fantastic!

  2. That Rookie Hoggs insert of Frye is really cool. I'm gonna need to see what other rookies were in that set.
