2006 Topps Heritage Football

More cheap cards for all of you.

Let's tear in.

Top to Bottom:
141 Osi Umenyiora

119 Patrick Crayton
THC33 Javon Walker Chrome (0158/1952)

297 Kassim Osgood
253 Drew Brees

180 Dunta Robinson
77 Demorrio Williams Black Back
392 David Givens

There are two things to take notice of in this pack. First of all, there's the coincidence of getting the Walker chromie the same week he catches a tremendous beat-down. (Editor's note: Look for Jay Leno's stale-ass monologue to include an O.J. Simpson reference in relation to this story at some point in the next week, then to follow for the subsequent fifteen or so shows.)

Second is the complete awesomeness of Osi Umenyiora's signature. From the time most kids are old enough to write their names, there's a tendency to practice your signature. For girls, the practice takes the form of attaching a crush's last name to their first name, precognitions of future matrimonial bliss. If you're a boy, though, you practice what your autograph will look like for the inevitable eventuality of signing things for your adoring fans. When Umenyiora was little, he had better things to do. "Hmmm, let's see... First name: Manuscript. Last name: Short curved line. Well, that oughta do it."
