2001 Topps Enduring Freedom

Here's a curveball. My first non-sports pack(s) for the blog! I told you I'd have some non-sports eventually.

This set documented the beginnings of our nation's war on terror. Way back over 6 whole years ago when terms like "United We Stand" and "Don't Tread on Me" meant something again to us again for a short while. American flags were proudly displayed everywhere.. now if you have a flag sticker on your car and you park downtown, your car gets keyed. *sigh*
