LaDainian Tomlinson was inducted into Canton this weekend, elected in his first year of eligibility. As a Chargers fan, it was a treat for me to watch him back in the day. He's a class act and you couldn't ask for a better face for your franchise. Great player and great man. You can check out this HOF speech on YouTube.
I've never been a huge football card collector, but I've compiled a decent LT PC over the years. Let's take this opportunity to check out the cards of his I have.
Easily the highlight is this auto/relic/xmas card.
A few memorabilia cards, including a bit of metal from a face-mask (#'d 85/400) and a couple jersey swatches.
Some cards from Score, including an Artist's Proof #'d 10/32.
Good ol' Upper Deck.
These are Leaf, Panini, and Fleer cards. The orange Etched In Time is #'d 12/25 (woo!). The Leaf Certified Materials is #'d 71/150. The Timeless Triples is #'d 17/100.
Some Topps cards. The card in the top-loader is #'d 136/149.
And we close out with a bunch of 2007 Topps/Chrome cards.
I'm always up for any other Tomlinson cards I don't have in trade.
Congratulations on making it into the Hall of Fame, LT! Thanks for everything.
I was very impressed with Tomlinson's speech ladt night. He is defintely under tbe radar as one of the better running backs in NFL history. I will keep you in mind if I come across LT cards as I go through cards.ReplyDelete
Last year I won $50 in store credit from COMC and ended up buying a pair of Tomlinson autographs with the money. One of my buddies is a huge Chargers fan, so I ended up seeing Tomlinson play a lot. The guy was a beast. These days, Lorenzo Neal is one of the radio personalities on my local morning show, so I'm blessed to hear some of the cool behind the scenes stories about LT2.ReplyDelete
