Adam sent a bunch of nice Steelers cards my way. When I was buying Steelers cards on a regular basis Bettis was probably second to only Hines Ward in my collection. I love when I can receive Steelers cards via trade (or Secret Santa!) because I would venture to say they are among the most expensive teams to collect. A rabid fanbase and legitimate superstars create the perfect storm.
The Steelers have done a good job over the years on what players to give long term deals. The one notable mess up was Rod Woodson. He had several really good post Steeler years.
When I think athlete Mike Lavalliere often comes to mind.....
Thanks for being a good sport Adam. You definitely took one for the team. Thanks for sending so many great cards.
