Continuing to catch up with cards that I've added to my collection.
Moving into some cards from 2010, the top card is an Inside the Numbers Materials insert card of Josh Cribbs from the 2010 Panini Prestige set.
I loved watching Cribbs as a returner. You had to pay attention in case he were to break one for a touchdown.
The bottom card is one that I had to think of as to whether to add it to my collection.
My collection generally consists of Browns cards, college cards of players that the Browns draft, and usually college cards of a Browns player that comes out the year that a player is on the Browns. (For example, when Odell Beckham Jr. played for the Browns, I would collect LSU cards of him during those seasons. I didn't collect LSU cards of him during his early seasons when he was a Giant.)
The bottom card, however, is from a high school All-American set.
Shon Coleman was drafted by the Browns, out of Auburn, in the 3rd round of the 2016 NFL Draft.
In the end, since the card was there, and wasn't expensive, I figured I would add it to my collection. It is an odd situation, but adds something a little bit different to my collection.
The card is an Autographs insert card of Shon Colemnan from the 2010 Razor US Army All-American Bowl set. At the time, he played for the Oliver Branch High School Conquistadors from Olive Branch, Mississippi.
This Joe Haden card is one of those that I had a lower numbered version of it before the higher number. This Draft Day Jerseys insert card from the 2010 Panini Limited set is numbered out of 100. I have owned the Prime version of this card, numbered out of 50, for a few years.
The card looked familiar, and if I hadn't have looked it up on The Trading Card Database, I would have passed on buying it because I thought I owned it already.
Time to begin the Montario Hardesty portion of this post.
Montario Hardesty was drafted by the Browns, out of Tennessee, in the 2nd round of the 2010 NFL Draft.
Oh, Bowman Sterling, what are you doing?
There can be multiple copies of the same player in the base set, some autographed, some memorabilia, and some autographed memorabilia cards, and then they make the parallels of all of them.
The card to the left is the regular memorabilia card from the 2010 Bowman Sterling set, while the middle one is the Refractor of the same card, numbered out of 299, and the one on the right is the Blue Refractor of the same card, numbered out of 99.
These two cards are from the 2010 Panini Classics set.
The card on the left is from the Significant Signatures Gold insert set, and is numbered out of 399.
The card on the right is from the Team Colors Materials insert set, and is numbered out of 299.
The top two cards are from the 2010 Panini Rookies & Stars set.
The card on the left is a Dress for Success Jerseys insert card, numbered out of 299.
The card on the right is a Freshman Orientation Materials Jerseys Autographs insert card, numbered out of 100.
The bottom card is from the 2010 Panini Rookies & Stars Longevity set. (Yes, Panini likes putting out similarly named sets like that.) It is from the Crosstraining Materials insert set, and numbered out of 250.
Earlier this year, I received a great package from Dennis of the Too Many Verlanders blog.
In the package, the was a great 2010 Playoff National Treasures card of Montario Hardesty. It had two memorabilia pieces, one part of a football, the other a piece of jersey. It was a NFL Gear insert card. It looked just like the one above.
That card was numbered out of 25. This one is out of 49.
This card out of 49 is considered to be the NFL Gear Prime card. I don't know why the Prime card has a higher number than the regular one.
Anyway, I like the card so having two that are slightly different is all good to me.
Here are a couple of cards from the 2010 Topps Prime set.
The top card is a Rookie Relics insert card, numbered out of 420.
The bottom card is named a Autographed Relics Level 5 insert card, numbered out of 499. (I guess we need to classify these things, but some of these names are a little ridiculous.)
Looking at those four pieces of jersey, one might almost think it was just one long strip in there, except I guess the holes in the jersey don't line up nicely enough for that. Kind of silly to put four small pieces in there that look the exact same.
The top card here is from the 2010 Topps Tribute set. It is numbered out of 30, and is part of the Relic Dual Swatch Blue insert set.
The bottom card, from 2010 Topps Triple Threads, is part of the refreshingly named Relics insert set. As you can see, it is numbered out of 36, and has two different parts of a jersey out of the three swatches.
Here are a couple of Mohamed Massaquoi cards for a change of pace. Don't worry, Montario Hardesty will reappear later in the post.
The card to the left is a Mirror Blue Materials insert card, numbered out of 100, from the 2010 Panini Certified set.
The card to the right is from the Rookie Review Materials insert set from 2010 Panini Prestige.
Colt McCoy was a 3rd Round pick of the Browns, out of Texas, in the 2010 NFL Draft.
The top card is a Rookie Blitz Materials insert card from 2010 Panini Plates & Patches. It is numbered out of 299.
The bottom card is a Freshman Orientation Materials Jerseys insert card from the 2010 Panini Rookies & Stars set. It is also numbered out of 299.
More cards from the 2010 Panini Rookies & Stars set, with the second one bringing Montario Hardesty back to this post.
The card on the left is from the Studio Rookies Materials insert set, and numbered out of 299.
The card on the right is from the Studio Rookies Combos Materials insert set, also numbered out of 299.
Here are two more cards from the 2010 Panini Rookies & Stars Longevity set.
The top Colt McCoy card is from the Crosstraining Materials insert set, and numbered out of 249.
The bottom McCoy card is from the Dress for Success Jerseys insert set, and again numbered out of 249.
The top card here has Colt McCoy again sharing a card with Montario Hardesty. It is from the 2010 Panini Threads - Rookie Collection Materials Combo insert set, and is numbered out of 299.
The bottom Colt McCoy card is an insert card from 2010 Topps. It is a Peak Performance Relics insert card. On the back of the card, it describes, as his peak performance, a game against Texas A&M in 2009 that he won 49-39 after passing for 304 yards with four touchdowns, and rushing for 175 yards and a touchdown.
Here are a couple of 2010 Topps Prime cards.
The top Colt McCoy card is from the Rookie Relics insert set, and numbered out of 420.
The bottom card of McCoy with Montario Hardesty, is from the 2nd Quarter Relics insert set, and numbered out of 355.
It almost feels like a bit of a letdown to finish these 2010 cards with a 2010 Bowman Sterling card of Carlton Mitchell. It is the regular memorabilia card from the checklist.
Carlton Mitchell was a 6th round draft pick of the Browns, out of South Florida, in the 2010 NFL Draft.
In a local note, Carlton Mitchell was drafted by the Ottawa REDBLACKS in their 2013 expansion draft, and played eight games with them in 2014.
