Mailday: Ladarius Green, Ryan Mathews Autographs Plus Melvin Ingram & Eric Weddle
I received some brand new additions to my Charger collection today. These arrived courtesy from a fellow collector from Trading Card Central.
First off, an autographed card of TE Ladarius Green from 2012 Rookies & Stars. Green was a fourth rounder in the 2012 draft. He hasn’t seen much playing time, only recording one catch so far this season. With Antonio Gates nearing the end of his career it will be interesting to see if he will be able to develop into a threat on the offensive side of the ball.
A Ryan Mathews autographed card to add to the collection. This is serial numbered 2/25.
A couple of Melvin Ingram rookie cards. From Topps Platinum and Topps Prime. I already picked up a Topps Prime Melvin Ingram Card from a group break. This card has the same number, but a different picture. At first, I thought one of these might be a short print photo variation. After doing some digging, it turns out that there are two different Melvin Ingram cards in Prime. One is from hobby packs and one from retail packs.
Finally, an insert card featuring FS Eric Weddle. Last season, Weddle tied for the NFL lead with seven interceptions. Hence his inclusion in an insert set titled Statistical Standouts.
