2008 Upper Deck Draft Edition Football

Too early for football? Meh.
This is actually a really great-looking product. The collegiate colors are the perfect palette with which a company can craft a football card.

Let's tear in.

Top to Bottom:
52 John David Booty (Not the first time a pack of cards led to the getting of some Booty, but that's another story for another time...)

31 Kellen Davis

18 Colt Brennan Green Logo Parallel

66 Malcolm Kelly

166 Amani Toomer (Wha?)

123 Carson Palmer (Wha-wha-WHA????)

On the one hand, this pack was more interesting, player-wise, than the pack of Press Pass I opened earlier. The inclusion of NFL veterans has me baffled. If Palmer had been in a USC uniform, then it would have made some sense, kind of like a "Where Are They Now?" subset, but his and Toomer's are just regular cards.

I'm also not too thrilled about the missing logo on the Davis card. What, has MSU co-opted the rights to the capital letter "S" or something? If this is possible, I've got dibs on "B", but I'll probably need tax-exempt status or something like that. Damn.

There you have it, folks, my only two packs of new football cards this year.

Beside the missing MSU logo, the rookie card symbols on the veterans is also a bit messed up.
