Default Where are the NFL lettermen this year?

So I've been working a project since 2009 I wanted to make my sons name out of different autographed lettermen Seahawks cards. His name is Landon and I have all the letters except a D.

Heres the thing ... there has never been an auto letter D in a hawks jersey made.

weve had Bosworth, Strong, Mccoy, Thomas, Curry, Butler, Zorn, Largent, Hutchinson, Jackson, Turbin, Wilson, Tate, plus the words The Boz and Seahawks.. NO Letter D to be found

So you can imagine my excitement when we drafted Paul Richardson in the 1st round... I was going to finish my project.... except no products have NFL lettermen this year. Rant Over

Fad. The letterman thing got way too big way too quickly and people lost interest after a while. Probably around the time Topps made that awful letterman set.

I agree its a fad but that being said they have had Auto NFL Lettermen cards every year since 06. They have been in Prominence, Threads, Topps Lettermen, Donruss Classics, Leaf Limited, etc ...... just kind of strange that they are gone.

Did he have anything in Topps football or inception? I can't say that I've checked those products but I know they have previously had letterman stuff... I think five star may contain lettermans as well but most of those products will have 1/1 letterman so a specific letter might be a bit difficult to track down. Either way best of luck with completion.

i am shocked Topps didn't throw out multiple letterman sets considering how much other garbage they flung at collectors this year.



that said, i wish there were more Bearcats letterman cards in UD

Putting together names with lettermen is one of my favorite projects. I just finished a Bears set for my cousin. That 'v' in my name can be a real headache!

the bigger releases have them usually so you should be able to get 1 in five star/nt.

just spent 15 minutes challenging myself to find you something other than that expensive Wilson... armanti edwards had a workout with Seattle recently... maybe they'll sign him! lol. There's got to be something like that out there. But I gave up.

Oh well, not like I had anything better to do--it's 2 degrees outside.

Hah appreciate the effort. And I am looking for Seahawks uniform so the Wilson wont do. Onlything close was in 06 Flair they had actual 1/1 game used latters of Shaun Alexander so there is 1 D out there but its not Autographed. I want an Auto Lettermen.
