Pack Break: 2009 Topps National Chicle Football

Didn't these come out a long time ago? This is the first time I've seen them for sale here so I grabbed one of the brightly colored, alluring packs. I like 'em enough to get more but I won't be spending too much on these.

This guy really seems to be on his way up... way up. He started out as an undrafted signing for the Giants. He never got past the practice squad in '05 and was severely injured in a non-sports related accident in '06 and almost bled to death. He was traded to Green Bay for a sixth-round draft pick and has been on fire ever since. He already holds the Packers franchise records for most rushing TD's (3) and most rushing yards (201) in a playoff game.

D'Qwell led the NFL in tackles in 2008. His '09 season was cut short by an injury in game six.

Taking over the Steelers starting runningback position in 2006 from Jerome Bettis, he's earned 2 rings in Superbowl XL and XLIII. Last year, after recovering from a brief injury, he lost his starting spot to Rashard Mendenhall.

Another Packer! Donald now holds the franchise record for most TD receptions and obviously was a huge part in helping Brett Favre earn his records for most TD's, completions, passing yards.. but hopefully not the interceptions one.

A nice looking Youngsters of the Gridiron insert. Knowshon wears the Broncos number 27 of the late Darrent Williams which he asked permission from Darrent's mother to wear with one condition, that he volunteer a couple of hours per month at the Darrent Williams Teen Center.

And of course the standard mini parallel which now come in every single retro set. I can't wait for 2036 Topps Heritage Baseball so I can get my Ken Griffey III mini surgeon general warning back!

No government stuff here.. wait a minute.. what the heck is this?
