It has Manning's picture and stats but on the front of the card it has the name Plaxico Burress. Is this common or do I have something special? I can't find pricing for it anywhere.

Three or four years down the road if you are still going hard at this PC youll look over your list and realize every set has like 3-5 variations of the same card and you cant find them anywhere. Thats were I am at now. Im only missing about 10-15 non 1/1 autos but im missing over 100 non 1/1 base cards....they are a killer.

I think the Jags are setting him up for success with their WRs and coaching decisions. If he has a huge price increase, the GU/Base stuff will not jump as much as his auto cards.
The other thing to consider is once he does get hot, lots of base and GU'd will pop up on eBay, which is THE best way to buy for a player collection. Back when lots were popular on eBay, sellers would show a picture with 9-18 cards, I'd add the amount I was willing to pay for the cards I need, bid, and usually win for half the amount. Then there would be 30-40 other cards not shown and I'd find 10-15 I'd need. It was heaven.
But 25 is a GREAT number if you want to move on. It does get difficult when the only cards you are getting are auto's. Makes you want other stuff too! LOL.
