2008 Donruss Sports Legends Hobby Pack Break

I already posted this earlier, over at A Pack to be Named Later, but wanted to share it with you all as well, just in case you don't that fabulous blog (you really should).

Yesterday I swung by the best hobby shop near my house (Sports Card Depot) and picked up an assortment of hobby packs. This seems to have become my Friday ritual, and I plan on keeping it up. This was the ONLY pack of Sports Legends I purchased.

There's somethin' good in this pack, so stick with me here.

#54 Bill Gadsby
. Sweet sweater dude!

#79 Jeanette "Black Widow" Lee
. The Mojo Hand was commenting the other day on just how attractive Ms. Lee is. No arguments here.

#21 Troy Aikman
. I have a friend who strictly refers to him as "Taikman". When we used to play Madden back in the day, his name would show as T. Aikman. Being a big Cowboys fan (ewww!) this friend would always threaten to wreck me with "Taikman".

#CLP-21 Marion Jones Collegiate Legends Patch Auto 150/246
. When I first pulled this from the pack, I saw the UNC logo, and the "M" in Marion followed by the "J" in Jones, and for a second thought that I had a Jordan auto in my hands. Turns out it was just another suspected cheater. Still a very nice patch auto though.

#63 Pete Rose
. Mr. Coverboy himself. For some reason, I don't consider him a cheater. Hopefully he ends up where he belongs, in the Hall Of Fame, very soon.

#88 Jim Taylor
. Former Fullback for the Packers. Never heard of him, but he is a Hall of Famer. Fullbacks rarely get much publicity. I wonder if that bothers them?

Th-Th-Th-Th-That's All Folks!


  1. Rose was never a cheater that I know of. In fact if him making a play was the difference between winning the game and winning a bet, he would have taken the game every time.

  2. That is a really cool hit. Historically notable at least. Wish I had something cool to offer in trade for it.

  3. lonestarr, if you can find something, i'll trade it.
