Football Challenge Card (2002 Pacific Heads Up Josh Reed # 133)

Today's card comes from Ebay. I offered less than the initial price because this is not going to be a high-demand card any more since it's in the "ten year old or more" dead zone of cards. This one is machine numbered to 1090 copies using the old "dot matrix" printer style of stamping. As you can see from the photo it has a foil finish and features the Bills wide receiver in his LSU threads. The back of the card erroneously compares this rookie to Jerry Rice, of course hindsight is always 20/20 but that's a bold statement. Apparently Reed was a pretty darn good college player though as he got the Biletnikoff Award in 2001 (awarded to the nation's top College WR) but it just didn't pan out in the NFL. I snagged this one for about 3.00 including shipping.

The next card on my challenge list (the card ending soonest on Ebay once this card was in hand) is a base card from 2011, more specifically 2011 Panini Threads # 8 Roddy White. This card might be better to try to track down at the local card shop because shipping will be more than the card is worth. I'll see if I can track it down this weekend. Until tomorrow, good luck on your personal football card quests!
