Trading Card Tuesday 8/1/2017

It’s August, which means college football is on the horizon for the month.  Today’s pack comes from the collegiate ranks.  LSU(Louisiana State University) Tigers trading cards.

Pretty plain packaging and straight forward bold text.  Maybe this was put together by a college kid, perhaps an intern?

I should write them, see if I can get some more packs, or I might possibly need a time machine.

Billy Hardin was hardly winning back in the early 1960’s.

George Atiyeh, I tell ya don’t want to get in a fight with him.

They say cleanliness is next to Godfreyness.  This man can run with the best of them in the empty stadium.

Terry high stepping into our hearts.  Seems like featured running backs now get 2500 yards in a season, not a career anymore.

Eddie was the trifecta of talent, running the ball, catching it, and kicking the hell out of it.

I was honestly hoping for a Pistol Pete card, and was disappointed.  Still am.

Mr. Anderson entered the matrix of LSU to plug holes, and not show his neck in his card photos.

Gaynell played both ways as an end.  Doesn’t get better than that.

 

I hope these student athletes received some kind of reimbursement for their likeness.  Seems like a shame to have these out in the wild, but no compensation.

 

Not a very good pack, and I am still disappointed to not get a Pistol Pete Maravich card.

 

On to next week!
