Thursday Six Pack

I humbly submit the second six pack. I'll never get used to seeing Favre in a Vikings uniform.

Percy Harvin on the other hand....he's gonna be a goodun.....

I'm hoping this is the year LT gets to go to his Super Bowl. I predicted a Chargers-Saints match up in the preseason. I sure would like to see it happen.

Love him or hate him, chances are he'll have the Eagles playing the in the NFC Championship this year.

Chris Johnson. Simply awesome.

Remember back when Denver looked like they were going places? Well this is what Kyle Orton looked like when they were. It's like the 1975 San Diego Padres fielded a football team....

Sunday Six Pack: 2009 RobbyT NFL Cards Are Here!

Well, here they are. I'm hoping to do a six pack each Sunday through the Super Bowl, but since I will be out of town for a couple of Sundays around the New Year, I know it won't happen. So I may cheat and throw up a sixer or two on Thursday nights too. I'd like to get at least one for each team up before the playoffs start. We'll see how it goes.

After 4 years of doing baseball this is my first attempt at football. Okay, it's my second attempt. This season. I had a design all but finished (16 cards, one for each AFC team), but I just wasn't happy with the design. So I scrapped them and then went back to the drawing board. I'm much happier with the way these turned out.

It's a shame I have to res these down to save for the web, because the mottled background really pops on the hi-res files.

I can't put my finger on it just yet, but there is something about them that keeps making me think of early 90's Fleer football. Hopefully it's just my imagination.

I thought about doing some sort of RC designation for Johnny Knox, one of the most exciting young players in the league, but I can't stand that thing on baseball cards (since they're almost never their real RC despite that logo) so I passed.

I love throwback uniforms in all sports. These Pats unis are some of my favorite of all time, even though I'm not a Pats fan. I like the Bills, Chargers and Titans throwbacks too. The Broncos are cool in a "did they really wear that crap" kind of way. The Jets throwbacks are awful. I've yet to see the Bengals in theirs this year. Are they not participating in this thing?

The inaugural 2009 RobbyT football cards are coming real soon. Perhaps as early as Sunday evening.

Thanks everybody for the support and emails!
