I hope my brother didn't jinx us...

I was talking to my brother who still lives in Northern Wisconsin and he brought up the unbringupable subject of the perfect season.  We shall not speak of such things here until it happens.  Until then we will only speak of what is done.

Bring on the Chiefs!!!!

Cliched the NFC north already 12-0 and Rodgers is over 3,000 yards for the year and a shoo in for MVP.

Life is good for this Packers fan.

Ten and Oh Yeah!

10 Oh Yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yikes again.  After dismantling the Vikings in Week 10, the Pack seems to be back to it's old ways in Week 11.  That being said the defense still had 2 takeaways and we still put up 35 points. But man the Packers defense is killing me in fantasy football.  But man is Jordy Nelson having a year.  So far he's racked up 756 yards and 9 touchdowns.

And a Thanksgiving game against the Lions that might actually be good and is relevant.  The Pack hasn't played the Lions yet this year and holy crap did they come roaring back.  I was playing against Stafford in Fantasy this week and he just blew me away.  51 freaking points and he was listed as Probable and has a broken finger.  

Bring on the turkey and Lions, I'll be up bright and early for this one the game starts at 8:30 here in Alaska.

cb out.

Oh Yeah!

That is how I want to see my Packers play the rest of the season.  Defense on target, Offense on fire.  Hell the Viks were nice enough to even let our back up score a TD.  Do I expect my team to go undefeated this year, of course not, do I expect a great rest of the season you bet.  9 and ohhhhhhh yeah.

2011 Packer Police Set.

Wow after last weeks game I need a walk around the block and some heart medication.  Yikes! But the Pack is 8 and 0 and looks like we might actually break they record of 10-0 as the teams best start. I fully expect to destroy the Vikings this Sunday, no reason not to. With a rookie quarterback.  Anyway, I just got this in the mail.  Every year since 1983 the Green Bay police department and the Packers team up to offer a set with sound police advise on the back.  Most of these set can be had for a few dollars, with the 1992 set, the first year Favre was included going for fairly big bucks.  I ended up snagging this set from a seller for a five dollar bill with free shipping, so not too shabby.  Here they are all 20 of them for your viewing pleasure.
Wait a second, where's Jordy?  The punter gets a card, but not Jordy Nelson? Blasphemy.

A few new cards to add to the collection.

Wow what a great opening game for the 2011 season.  And we even held onto win!!! That's always good.

I've really haven't been hitting the packers cards too hard other than some team sets and random pulls but I did pick up a couple nice cards recently.

First we have a Gameday auto from 2011 Topps Football. Jordy is currently my favorite packer right now, but after Randall Cobbs performance last Thursday Jordy better watch out.  Jordy still had a great game, picking up right were he left off in the Super Bowl.

And next a great card with some classic players.

2011 Elite Book card dual jersey with Paul Hornung and Forrest Gregg.  #d to 99

1997 ProFlicks Packers

I bought two boxes of these at trade night the other night.  I couldn't resist, for the price of a pack of cards I got a slew of cool oddball football cards.  And I also got a few Packers to add to my collection. I did put up a bigger post of the box break over at Collector's Crack

Will start off with the late and great Rev. Reggie White.

Here's what the box looks like.

Not a bad checklist in the product either, some great HOFer's in here, and some not so hot anymore guys too.

Chewy.  Poor Mark got injured in 1999 against the Lions and was never the same.  He is probably best remembered in Wisconsin for his trial for allegedly having sex with his 17 year old baby sitter.  He was acquitted.

And lastly the Favres.
One of these is the refractor parallel but the scan makes it impossible to tell which.  I do know that the Reggie White up top was a Refractor as well.
I was really hoping to pull a QB Greats Favre too but I ended up with two Troy Aikmans.

And of course this was put out after the Packers SuperBowl XXXI win, so it's got that going for it too.
