2005 Donruss Classic Combos #CC-3

Type: Dual Jersey Card
Acquired: Bought Online
I love this card!!! Not only does it have a piece of Raiders jersey from Bo Jackson, but it also includes a beautiful piece of jersey from Hall of Fame running back Earl Campbell! The design is gorgeous, the back as usual with these types of cards has no stats, but for possibly the first time ever, this does not bother me! The great choice of photos on the front, the American flag and two of the toughest backs ever in the NFL made this a must have for my Bo card collection. BTW if you have never had one of Earl Campbells hot links fresh off the grill, you haven't lived! They are delicious!

2004 Donruss Playoff Honors #PS-36

Type: Limited Insert
Acquired: Bought Online
This card was limited to a print run of 2,500 produced. I like the design of the front of the card, but I feel like there is a lot of wasted space towards the bottom. The back gives some facts, but absolutely no stats. This could have been a very nice card. it holds no sentimental value to me, but it does include my all-time favorite athlete and the price was fair so I had to add it to my collection.

2004 Donruss Throwback Threads # 210

Type: Jersey Card
Acquired: Bought Online
Here we have another Bo "Relic" card, but this one is super cool to me. Why? Because it contains a piece of fabric from Bo Jackson's White Sox jersey complete with a pinstripe! This may not seem cool to other collectors, but I love it! It's so much better than just a solid colored swatch. Don't you think? Also, look at that photo on the front with Bo sporting those shades like the baddest man on the planet. Great pose, great shot and limited to a total of 100 cards. SOLD!

1987 Donruss The Rookies #14

Type: Limited Series
Acquired: Bought From A Friend
Here we have a young Bo Jackson ready to take the world by storm. Just look at the determination and drive in those eyes. Just by looking at this card you could tell big things were on the horizon for this upcoming MLB prospect. I like the look of this classic 87 Donruss design, especially in the green color featured in this "The Rookies" set. The back has a nice amount of stats and info which makes this one of the top Bo Jackson rookie cards in my collection!
