    You have to love it when guys have great game right after you snag a nice card of them. Amazing catch by Gage on the TD.

    Picked up the eTopps Titans team card /749 today

    Cool looking card with a low print run... nice selection of players too. If the Titans win the Super Bowl, they'll issue a special card to everyone who owns a Titans team card.

    You have to set up an eTopps account here...

    http://www.etopps.com/Authenticate/Login.html

    Once you have an eTopps account you can purchase the cards either directly from eTopps on the week they're offered or after the fact on eBay. If you purchase an eTopps card on eBay they'll be transfered directly into your portfolio (no shipping required!). When you accumulate a few cards, you can chose to have them delivered. I cashed in my cards last year, but have since added a Chris Johnson card and the Titans team card to my account. From time to time they'll have in house signings (with on card sigs!).

    Back in the mid-seventies I was just getting into football and I found myself liking two teams. The Houston Oilers (because of Kenny Burrough and his super cool 00 jersey number) and the Oakland Raiders. I liked the Raiders because of one guy... Jack Tatum. The baddest hard-hitting safety ever to lace 'em up. The Oilers added Billy "White Shoes" Johnson, and Robert "DR. Doom" Brazile to lock up my loyality... to think I almost became "Raider fan".

    I decided to go back and grab all of Tatum's cards from his playing days. I'd also like to grab a sig, but he hasn't signed much at all so his autos are :greedy: I read a bio on Tatum back in the day called "They Call Me Assassin"... definitely going to search eBay for a copy.

    Here are the first few arrivals...

    Jack "The Assassin" Tatum

    74 Topps (his 2nd card)

    78 Topps

    79 Topps

    Tatum ended up finishing his career as an Oiler when he was acquired by Bum Phillips as the coach tried to load up for another run at those ****ing Steelers.

    And in another rather timely postal delivery I received these two beauties of a more recent vintage....

    William Hayes 08 Bowman Chrome Gold Refractor 02/50
    [​IMG]

    Jason Jones 08 Bowman Chrome Orange Refractor 20/25
    [​IMG]

    Snagged the Jones for 99 cents :) I'm thinking it'd be a bit more this week.

    To date both players only cardboard has been in the 2008 Bowman and Bowman Chrome releases.
