Zombie Wes Welker

I'm a great fan of the "GRITTY WHITE RECEIVER."  Wes Welker is perhaps the prime example of this archetype in football.  I recently picked up a Welker signature card that features a slightly unsettling portrait of the former-Patriot, now-Bronco:

2009 National Chicle, West Welker autograph card.  Sticker auto, but I'm happy to own this card nonetheless.

Apparently the artist decided to paint Welker as a zombie.  His skin tone in the portrait is slightly greenish, grayish, and ashen.  It's a bit creepy.  Zombie Wes Welker has come to feast upon human flesh!

Bo Knows

Well, it's been 2+ months since my last post.  (And that last one was quite monumental.)  I really should try to post at least semi-regularly and with more frequency, perhaps starting now.  Work is very busy.  When I get home I try not to use the computer at all, since I've been having some carpal tunnel and lower-arm muscle issues again.  Weekends are for vegging out.  I do have a pretty spiffy card to show off, however.  It's a card that depicts one of the greatest athletes of all time:

Bo Knows!  2012 Press Pass Legends Hall of Fame Edition, Bo Jackson autograph, #'d 54/75.  I pulled this from a box I purchased at All Star Cards in Santee, CA (essentially, San Diego).

This wasn't necessarily the best or rarest card from the pack, but it is undoubtedly my favorite one.  Another one off the wish list, on to the next one!
