2000 Gamers Football Hobby

Game on!
A few weeks ago I bought a hobby box of 2000 Fleer Gamers football from my local card shop. Why? I always enjoyed the baseball set and like the card design and stock. So why not buy a box that cost $70+ new in 2000 for $25 today. Plus why pass up the chance at some Titans and Saints cards?

So let's get to crinkling some foil!


One hobby box. Five cards per pack. Twenty four packs per box.

100 Card Base Set

45 Card Next Gamers subset (1:8 Packs)

Parallels:
Gamers Extra - Gold foil printing and has EXTRA under card number
Base Cards 1 - 100 (1:8 Packs)
Next Gamers 101 - 145 (1:24 Packs)

Insert Sets:
Contact Sport - 20 Cards (1:4 Packs)

Yard Chargers
Wide Receivers 1 - 5 (1:9 Packs) / Running Backs 6 - 10 (1:24 Packs)
Quarterbacks 11 - 15 (1:144 Packs)

Change The Game - 15 Cards (1:24 Packs)

Gamers Uniformity - Jersey Cards (1:44 Packs)

Gamers Autographics - On Card Autographs (1:287 Packs)

This is back when game used and autos were a rare treat.



Pack 1




















87 Brad Johnson






















57 Tim Biakabatuka

Fun name to say. Bad name to type.
















13 of 20 CS Dennis Northcutt Contact Sport

Better looking cards in person. Bright and pics are light gold with refractor like shine to card.
























81 Kevin Johnson






















52 Kurt Warner

Please stop the Hall of Fame talk. Too many bad years for that yet.



Pack 2



















Checklist Card

Nothing like a great checklist. If you look closely enough you can see it has great players names on it. Thus making it valuable.





















11 Mike Alstott






















60 Eddie George

Second best RB in the Oilers / Titans history after Earl Campbell.
First Titan of the box and a nice card. As you can see under Eddie
is a Bronco that was just too scared to tackle.





















126 J.R. Redmond





















39 Jon Kitna





















65 Mark Brunell


Pack 3




















56 Steve McNair

When I was working in Vicksburg, MS, Steve was in his last year at the NCAA Division Two level. Some guys I managed were students at Alcorn State and invited me down to shoot some hoops. After about 30 mins on the court a slightly faded, early 80's Nissan Z pulls up to the court. Out steps McNair. Crowd gathers. My friends laugh as Steve lines up opposite me. After a few minutes he goes for the lane, starts his leap, palms me in the face, pushes off and dunks. 200 people scream happily, laugh, taunt and grab crotches while saying "Damn" "Awe Shit, man" and other stuff. I walk off the court with head held low as Steve laughs and pats me on the back. Steve McNair made me the other guy on the poster.




















4 Rich Gannon


Almost a Super Bowl winner. Damn tuck rule.






















13 of 15 CG Edgerin James Change the Game

Another bad scan of a great looking foil card.





















93 Amani Toomer





















9 Jevon Kearse

Great player. Too bad he was a Gator. Had fun taunting him during a friend's batchelor party when Tank Williams got Javon to tag along. He is a great guy and willing to put up with Vols fans.
Here's to an injury free season.


Pack 4




















46 Raghib Ismail

I forgot. Did this guy save the CFL or not?




















15 James Stewart























67 Marcus Robinson





















84 Steve Beurlein





















100 Kerry Collins

Why could Drunky McFumbles not put together a Super Bowl season for the Saints
?

Pack 5




















47 Ricky Williams

Thanks to Iron Mike for trying to make the Saints into the Lions.























75 Randall Cunningham

Man this guy was electric.
















12 of 20 CS Trung Candidate Contact Sport






















64 Emmit Smith





















22 Jamal Anderson

What ever happened to the Dirty Birds?
Is that you dayf?


Pack 6




















71 Damon Huard





















59 Wayne Chrebet

Between this guy and Steve Tasker, the little guys were well represented in the 90's.






















4 of 15 YC Tim Brown Yard Chargers

Even though this guy is on of the greats of the game I just don't see him that way.





















92 Jake Plummer




















8 Dedric Ward




This is all I have ime to post this week. Next Tuesday or Wed. I will post the rest of the box. Some good stuff in here. I just want to get it out there.

  1. Reading this after McNair died, the story is bittersweet... Nah! It is just SWEEEEEET!!! (while grabbing crotch.:)

  2. Gotta disagree with you on the Warner thing. He may not be a hall of famer, but the discussion is certainly valid. Look at the record books (just set another record today) and ACTUAL production. Sure he is 1-2 in Superbowls, but he holds the top 3 yards passing marks and had his team either tied or in the lead with less than a minute to go in all 3. Peyton Manning got more rushing production in his one superbowl than Warner got in all three combined. Quick, name 10 better QB's. Are they all HOF or no doubt future HOF's. I thought so.
