are you ready for some football? me, i am only mildly interested. anyway, the season kicks off tonight and so i figured it was an appropriate time to show what will likely be the last football card you will ever see on this blog. it's a 2001 fleer tradition glossy card of the cowboys' emmitt smith
even though i grew up as a fan of the rams, who had a hard time beating the cowboys, i respected tom landry and his wardrobe, even if it was a bit out of time.
also, thanks to whomever it was that sent me this link to a uni-watch article when i first started pulling this collection together. it reminded me of the landry patch, and inspired me to obtain a card example of another non-baseball memorial patch for the collection. stay tuned.
