I'm Just A Glutton For Punishment: My Marshawn Lynch Addiction

('08 Marshawn Lynch Upper Deck Exquisite Endorsements 08/30)
The Buffalo Bills are enduring their worst season in franchise history, and that means a few things for this collector and fan. The obvious is that football Sundays are a bit difficult to watch. Less obvious, but just as crucial, there really aren't too many players to collect on the Bills right now. I've added a few cards to my PC of a few Bills players, but it's tough when none of those players are doing much on the field. The same goes for Marshawn Lynch. I've picked up a number of nice UD Exquisite and Ultimate auto'd/jersey cards the past year, and it seems like I just can't stop. I guess I'm just a glutton for punishment.

He was recently traded to the Seattle Seahawks and will hopefully start putting some big numbers up. He's still only 24 years old and has a boat load of talent. It'd be nice if he could make another Pro Bowl or ten. That would certainly help the value of these cards go up, but it's really not about the book value. I really like these Lynch cards. Maybe its the crazy "Marshawn Lynch 23" signatures or his tough running style. Whatever it is, I'm Just A Glutton For Punishment.


  1. That is one sweet autograph!

    Couldn't agree with you more... I sure hope he starts putting up some big numbers for the Hawks... my other favorite team ;-)

  2. He has one of the biggest sig's in the hobby. It makes for some cool looking auto'd cards. I would like to see him put some decent numbers up, plus he's on my fantasy team as my fourth running back.
