Perfect Season Pickup

This morning I received a notice that I had won this Nick Buoniconti autographed card.  It comes from that Pro Football Hall of Fame set they issued near the end of last year.  The set features 253 total cards and 130 of them are autographed.  Buoniconti does not have any certified autographs and/or relics that can be found in packs.  I was lucky to find someone who decided to break their set apart card by card.  The Hall of Fame only made 150 sets, costing around $5,000.00 each.  This card only had one bid and I snatched it up for under $50.00.  Its going to be a long time before I find another person willing to spend that kind of cash on a set, and then want to break it up.  This card will fit well into my Perfect Season collection.  Its also an on-card signature and should arrive this week.

Welcome To Perfectville: Population 1

The Colts just lost their first game this year which means the ’72-’73 Perfect Season Miami Dolphins are safe for another year.  Every year there seems to be a team that looks like they might go all the way without losing, but it hasn’t happened in 36 years.  There are a ton of players from that team that should have relics and autographs made, but only a handful do.  Griese, Csonka, Yepremian, Scott, Little, and Shula make up the small amount of players that have relic and autographed cards.  I’d like to see more.  I highly doubt we’ll ever see another team go undefeated again.

Nick Buoniconti Gets An Auto

I was just browsing through the list of players that have autographs in the new Pro Football Hall of Fame trading card set, and Nick Buoniconti’s name popped up.  Buoniconti is one of the members of the Miami Dolphin’s Perfect Season team and doesn’t have any relics and/or autographs found in packs.  I know companies have approached him for relics and autographs but he hasn’t really showed interest in it.  Too bad the HOF is only making 150 of these sets and you can’t purchase the cards individually.  Its a little too pricey for me at $5,000.00.  Other Perfect Season Dolphins from the set include Bob Griese, Larry Little, Larry Csonka, Paul Warfield, and Don Shula.

2009 Press Pass Legends Football SP List + Perfect Season Players

Today Press Pass releases one of their most popular products of the year – Legends Football.  There are two players featured in this product for the first time that I’m really excited about – Jim Kiick & Dick Anderson.  I collect players from the Miami Dolphins Perfect Season team and Kiick & Anderson don’t have a lot of autographed cards to collect.

The base set consists of 100 cards, and 10 of them are SP’s:

  • Ian Johnson #4
  • Juaquin Iglesias #36
  • Jarett Dillard #41
  • Graham Harrell #49
  • Bruce Smith #64
  • Frank Gifford #68
  • Paul Warfield #83
  • Bruce Smith #86
  • Bernie Kosar #98
  • Rod Woodson #99

I hope to open some ’09 Legends at this year’s National to take advantage of Press Pass’s Promotional Events.

P.S.

Looking on eBay you’ll see many people stating certain base cards are SP’s when there’re not.  The players above are the official SP list directly from Press Pass.

Kuechenberg 2010

Bob Kuechenberg will go down as one of the best Guards that the NFL has ever seen.  He is a member of the 1972-73 Perfect Season Miami Dolphins and has played with Hall of Famers Larry Little, Jim Langer, and Dwight Stephenson.  Bob Kuechenberg attended Notre Dame and was originally drafted by the Eagles, but was cut from the team quick.  After being picked up by the Dolphins in 1970, Kuechenberg really started to bloom.  For the last few years he has been close to being chosen as a member of the Hall of Fame, but it just hasn’t happened yet.  I would like to see Kuechenberg make it to the Hall of Fame in 2010.  The Hall needs another member of that legendary team.

In Honor of the Dolphin’s Win Today

In honor of the Miami Dolphins winning today and going 7-5 for the season, check out this piece of memorabilia.  Its a full-size helmet signed by 35 members of the Perfect Season team.  All of the autographs are certified by Mounted Memories.  I would love to have something like this in my collection someday.  That day probably won’t be for a long, long, long time with a price tag of $2,500.00.
