New Additions For January Seventh
Today's mail brought cards from two trades last week. Waiting in my mailbox were additions to my New England Patriots Collections as well as my Daunte Culpepper collection.
New Cards Received:
1999 Upper Deck MVP Daunte Culpepper Rookie
2002 Pacific Atomic Jabar Gaffney Rookie #ed/465
2002 Topps Pristine Uncirculated Refractor Jabar Gaffney Rookie #ed/999
2002 Upper Deck Star Rookie Jabar Gaffney
The Culpepper rookie provides me with another first year card as I continue working the on player collection. I happen to like this particular issue of UD MVP as I have a modest portion of the baseball set(of this year and with the same design) stashed away somewhere in a 1,000 count box. Something about it appeals to me. I don't really no why, but I appreciate it none the less.
The Gaffney Rookies are a nice addition to my Patriots Collection as well. Gaffney is a low key player who is overshadowed by stars Randy Moss and Wes Welker. Gaffney made several key catches during the Patriots final games in their attempt to earn a playoff birth. When Gaffney joined the Patriots after being discarded by the Texans, nobody thought he would be a contributor. Jabar has played consistently as a number three receiver and shows no signs of stopping.
