Now that we got hockey, baseball, and basketball out of the way, let's move on to the bulk of what was in my $25 card show box: football. Now, there were no Penguins Cubs, or Rockets to be found so far, so it was nice to at least find five cards from the Houston Texans, and being in Fargo, ND, it was no surprise to find a HEAVY Vikings presence. In total, there were five Texans and 26 Vikings. Here's a quick look at them:

Now most of the Vikings were rookies from around 2007 who didn't really make it too far, but I was impressed with how many autographs there were. That has to count for something, right?
Anyway, I'll conclude the series tomorrow with the rest of football.
