Something new and something blue

Black and blue that is.  The first 6 weeks have been rough in Carolina for Panthers fans.  I'm not giving up hope though.  Even though the team only has 1 win there have been flashes of greatness on the field.  Heck, at least the team is putting some points on the board!  Other than last week's game against the Falcons (which was closer than the score indicated) the Panthers have been in every game.  They took the defending Super Bowl champs down to the wire and only lost by 3 points.  Same thing when it came to playing the Bears and Saints.  That said I still get excited about acquiring new Panthers cards.  These few I'm sharing today came several weeks ago before things started to change.  I don't anticipate acquiring many more this season, but it's OK.  Outside of Cam Newton fans I don't know many card bloggers that care about the cats.

2011 Panini Rookie & Stars
I love these big jersey swatch cards!

2011 Topps Rising Rookies
Former coach John Fox basically refused to play Armanti Edwards last season.  So far he hasn't been all that successful trying to return the ball.  Verdict is still out on whether they can convert this former college QB into a WR in the NFL.

2010 Panini Patches & Plates
I had high hopes coming into this season for David Gettis.  It's a shape he went down so early with a season ending injury.  The Panthers still lack that #2 receiver to go along with Steve Smith.  I guess if there is anything good about the injury is it seems no one is actively looking for his cards making them el-cheap!
