That being said, I'm definitely cheering for the Pats today. I know Brady is near the end of his career so there won't be a lot more chances like this, so let's hope he pulls it off!
In related news, I always wanted a Tom Brady patch card, but they always cost way too much so I've never been able to pick one up. But this morning a guy had a bunch of Tom Brady cards on sale on COMC (due to the Super Bowl), and his one Brady patch was priced nicely so I grabbed it. It's obviously not yet in hand, but it's a really nice card IMHO:
Antowain Smith is there too, which mike take away for some, but really adds to it for me since he was such a big part of the 2001 and 2003 Super Bowl wins. The fact that both patches are three colors is extra nice IMHO.
The best part though - the guarantee on the back:
I am a sucker for any old school card where they show you a picture of the jersey the piece came from, let alone two pictures for two jersey pieces. Smith's jersey looks crazy beat up which is awesome, and I wonder if it'd be possible to match it to a game since it has some tell tale tears. Maybe I'll have to check that out sometime, but today my focus is all on the Super Bowl - GO PATS!
