Update on 2008 Topps Rookie Progression

Posted by houstoncollector on April 18, 2008

I have the checklist now, and it’s a 220 card set, with 150ish veterans, 10 or so retired players, and 55 draft picks.  Who am I interested in?

Well, whoever the Texans draft, for one thing.  Beyond that, Matt Schaub, Earl Campbell, Andre Johnson, Mario Williams, and Donnie Avery (UH).  There are a few players that puzzle me, though.  Sage Rosenfels, for one.  Yes, he’s a talented player, but … he’s a backup QB.  Why is he in this set?  He could be much better replaced by DeMeco Ryans or Amobi Okoye on the Texans.

There’s a relic of Donnie Avery, and a Dual with Avery and Marcus Smith (why not Anthony Alridge? or Kevin Kolb?), and a Triple of Avery, Keenan Burton, and Harry Douglas, as well as one with Avery, Donald Driver, and Marcus Smith.  Avery’s also got a Progression Rookie.  Avery gets a total of one autograph in it, in an autographed relic variety, and then he gets a Senior Letter.

What’s interesting is some of the triple signatures they’ve got, such as:  Adrian Peterson, Darrin McFadden…and Jim Brown.  Or how about…Marino, Elway, and Montana?

So…I’m a bit more interested in this set now.
