And here we go. Another Rookie Currently in the CFL!

This card, a 2008 Donruss Threads Cory Boyd Holofoil is another example of a guy who didn't make it in the NFL and yet had at least 100 or more cards produced of him. I can understand card companies not wanting to miss another Priest Holmes or Tom Brady but really? It seems like every non drafted rookie free agent gets a card these days just because companies want to expand their rookie content. If companies would move more towards veteran content then you wouldn't have this problem of cards that just don't mean anything like this one. As a set collector I want it because it's part of the set. If I were a Tampa Bay collector, I might want it because he was briefly with the team. Perhaps the only collectors these cards would appeal to is diehard CFL collectors (and I'm sure there are some out there) or college collectors. I suppose every card has its niche. This would be one of those "special cards".
