Why I love the hobby.

Why I love the hobby.
Close the page if you want to see a huge pull....cause this isn't the reason.

I just bought two rookie cards (Contenders - base/non auto, and Plates and Patches - silver/non auto) of.....MICHAEL PALMER. Who? The 3rd string TE of the Falcons.

Who else is he? My daughters favorite football player - he went to he elementary school and reads to her class -2 years in a row now. Last year she got an autographed poster - this year I got her the P&P card for an in person auto. Got the contenders for my 4 yr old to get an in person as well.

I'll post the photo when she gets her auto (in her school library) Smile

A very touching story, and a awesome time for your daughter.

Looking for all types of rookie cards. Only trade with a d/c #. If you have less than 25 trades you must ship first. Thanks.

cool man! Nice to hear these guys are giving back you know. Even though he is a 3rd string that still is awesome that he cares enough to go and do things like that. Post that pic when you get it!

RE: Why I love the hobby.
He's a really nice guy. He even got choked up last year reading the story. It meant something to him and he wanted to share it with he kids.

He's got a cool story - Clemson was the only school that courted him (he played highschool for Parkview (Gwinnett, Ga - identical jerseys as Clemson) - did well, but not drafted. ATL picked him up as they always do with local products.....but he made the team. He just re-signed this year after his 2 year deal was up. Falcons apparently like what he brings.

You can search nfl.com and see his first pro TD - and see the reaction from Tony Gonzalez. I think the team just likes what he brings - talent and positivity.
