Yesterday was the start of the college football season for my USC Trojans. I attended USC in the early 90s and greatly enjoyed their glory years under Pete Carroll while living in Trojan Country (Orange County, CA). As an eternal optimist, I am hopeful that the sanctions are behind us and we can Return to Glory. We had a great start destroying the Fresno State Bulldogs (and I won a free lunch in a bet with a buddy) yesterday so I thought I would share a wonderful Trojan card I picked up for my collection.
I recently scored a card that back in 2006 would have gone for hundreds of dollars for a less than the cost of a couple blasters. Check this out:
As a Trojan fan, I can't think of a much better score than a triple auto relic that spells out USC. The players go back to the glory days for the Trojans - before sanctions, scholarship reductions and Pete Carroll's departure. I am hoping with the penalties behind us and the new coaching staff we can rise to the top once again.
