2008 Finest Steve Slaton Black Printing Plate Auto 1/1
The Pirates were off today, so that means WVU showcase! 2008 was a big year for running backs with such guys as Jamal Charles, Ray Rice, Matt Forte, Darren McFadden and Chris Johnson all being drafted. To this day I still see Slaton cards pop up that I've never seen before. He has many high end releases featuring him along with all those I mentioned.
Injuries and fumble issues cost Slaton his career, but his cards still sell. People who collect WVU have such fond memories of Pat White, Owen Schmitt and Steve Slaton that collectors still hoard their cards. My Mountaineer collection is not as big as my Pirates, but I cherish it the same. I actively hunt for rare pieces that I missed when they were released.
