1989 Barry Sanders Rookies - Greatest of all-time

Yes, the greatest running back title is debatable...but in my opinion Barry takes the title. Payton and Brown were obviously incredible as well, but both had decent teams around them. Barry had a couple of receivers and two decent O-lineman. The Pro Set and Topps are both PSA 10's, the Police card is a SGC 98 and the Score is a *gulp* GAI 9.5...looking at the scan looks a tad o/c left-right, so probably more likely a 9.

Tedy Bruschi - Heart of the Defense

Tedy was awesome. He was a career long Patriot and earned his way onto two All-Pro teams, during the Super Bowl run. Bruschi was a team leader when the defense was actually good. Looking like the Patriots are returning to a defensive focus which is good.

The 1996 Bowman's Best Tedy Bruschi card is alright. I like the photo, but all the other stuff going on with the card is a little much for me. I am cool with the chrome look, actually a huge fan of Topps Chrome cards, but I am not understanding the gold comb in the background.

1974 Sam Bam Cunningham

The Patriots are not a franchise known for their running game, ever. Sam Cunningham was a beast. This is a 1974 Topps SGC 92, I would like to upgrade at some point...but man the quality control in the seventies was atrocious.

President George H.W. Bush signature

The scan blurred :Bush: the actual signature is not smudged. This is a signed 4x6 of a portrait from his time in the Navy, I think this is a great picture. My presidential collection is going to grow extremely slowly, but I do get excited when I am able to pick them up.

1984 Andre Tippett - Hall of Famer

Andre Tippett was awesome. Again, not a fan of the portrait photos for cards...I would prefer a shot similar to the autographed photo, but what are you going to do. The 1984 Topps set was amazing for rookie cards, especially QBs.  Other than Tippett's picture, I actually like this set.
