Here are more cards that I received from my most recent group break at the Trading Card Central forums. While my only hits from this break were a David Harris relic card and Stephen Paea autograph card (see previous post), I did manage to pull some nice Chargers base cards.
One of the boxes that we opened was 2008 SP Authentic Football. Didn’t pull any autographs, but I managed to complete the 4 card team set.
2008 was one of those weird seasons for the Chargers. It was the year of the Ed Hochuli game. It was also the season that the Chargers won the division despite a mediocre 8-8 record. In the playoffs, they beat the Indianapolis Colts in the divisional round (a game which I saw from the Wynn Encore hotel in Las Vegas). But, they would go on to lose the following playoff game to the Pittsburgh Steelers to finish 9-9 overall.
