This week....the Raiders. We haven't won in Oakland since 1995. Let's hope we can change that.
Each Sunday of the NFL season, I will feature 6 random cards from my Pittsburgh Steelers' PC. There is no rhyme or reason for any of them, just 6 random cards I pull out of one of my many boxes or binders of black and gold (and there are MANY) and maybe a comment or two.
Here we go...
1948 Bowman Chuck Cherundolo #50
By far my oldest Steeler card, this 1948 Bowman is a beaut. The best part is cost me less than a couple bucks. I'll buy that all day. Check out that leather helmet. I wonder if Polamalu would still hit guys as hard if he had to play with a leather helmet? I'm guess...yeah, probably.
1996 Playoff Contenders Genuine Leather Jerome Bettis #36
This card is made of leather. At least it sure feels like it is. I guess that is the point. The card is real thick and even has the leather smell. I'm not real sure I understand the little quiver lines around the bus but still it's a nice card. We could sure use the bus these days.
2010 Epix Jason Worilds Rookie Auto #'d/499
2010 Certified Immortals Jack Lambert #182 #'d/999
Oh so shiny. So unbelievably shiny.
2013 Bowman White Jarvis Jones #120
This is the white parallel. At least I think. I don't remember what the normal cards look like. I know there are black parallels, blue, green, red, orange, purple, mauve, chartreuse, pink, fruit-stripe, emerald green, light blue, steel, grass green, off white, ecru, eggshell, off-black, and clear.
