Judging from some of the posts I've seen of late, Matt from Sport Card Collectors has been busy sending out PWEs to various bloggers. I was fortunate enough recently to receive not one, but two PWEs with some football goodies from Matt.
The big item was the only one I was expecting. When Matt pulled the Fred Warner auto out of his break of Leaf Draft, I immediately claimed it. He said I could have it if Warner wasn't drafted by the Giants. On Day 2, I was happy to see the 49ers pick him, securing my latest BYU autograph. For years, BYU was a quarterback school (see: Jim McMahon, Steve Young, Ty Detmer, et al). In the past few years, they seem to be churning out linebackers instead. Kyle Van Noy, Harvey Langi, and now Fred Warner have all been 2nd or 3rd round picks in the past five years. In my opinion, Warner is the least of the three, but the promise he flashed during his freshman and sophomore years might be an indicator of the potential he still hasn't tapped.
Thanks for the PWEs, Matt! It's always good to add to that BYU auto collection.
