*takes another sip, gets ready for a new post*
Before I move on with today's post, I wanted to take a moment of silence for all of those that had fallen on 9/11. Please do so with me.

It's officially football season! Today marks the first Sunday with a full slate of games and I can't wait. I am not expecting a lot out of the Giants this season but would love to see a few surprise wins and some growth with Daniel Jones. I honestly want him to succeed so we won't have to draft a QB next year and use our picks to fill in more offensive line and secondary needs.
With fall here and more cold weather on the way, I started to think it was time for me to dig out my sweater...shirt. My sweatshirt. I am not a sweater person, they just look so itchy. However, I do collect them for my Christmas PC.
In 2020, I completed the entire 42-card Donruss Rookie Sweater set and almost have the 8-card dual sweater set as well, missing just the Hurts/Reagor, Love/Dillion and Burrow/Higgins.
Which has now led me to want to chase down the 2021 Donruss Rookie Sweater Set. Once again, this set is 42-cards and right now I have roughly half of it complete. But, I am missing a lot of the big pieces which could be costly unless I find some trading partners.
I don't have all of my pieces in hand yet, but here is what I do have to show off for today's post,
Pretty cool, don't you think? Also, Toney was the first Giant included in this set. So, nobody can say I went without posting a Giants card on kickoff day.
I will update my set chase as I get more into it. I also have a spreadsheet I need to add to the next post as well so you can see where I am at. I may also chase the 8-card dual set as well, but who knows. I am hoping Panini produces another one of these sets for this year.
If you have any of these, just drop me an email at email@example.com. I am sure we can work out a trade if I need them!
*takes a sip before finishing up today's post*
I have pizza dough thawing, my jersey and hat picked out, and I will be ready later when the Giants kickoff their season.
In comments today, your thoughts on my chase and your expectations for your NFL team welcomed in comments.
Have a great football Sunday!

That is a cool set, I haven't seen those before. Now I may have to go chasing this! So many project which to chose? LOL.ReplyDelete
I know all about that. If it wasn't turning fall and heading towards Christmas I may have waited on this lol. Last years was just as much fun to collect and finish the set of.Delete
I don't expect much from the Seahawks. As for the Packers... anything less than a trip to the playoffs would be considered a disappointment.ReplyDelete
What a win for Seattle!Delete
Love that they have some fun and created that set...My two teams are the Giants and Browns and honestly I'm not sure who will do better as QB performance is a big question mark for both.ReplyDelete
Both barely won with questionable QB's lol.Delete
