Back in ’06 un-drafted free agent Mike bell had a monster pre-reason and was promoted to starting RB over veteran Tatum Bell. Being un-drafted he had very few cards and the few autos went through the roof. I was lucky enough to have this one.
By the time the first game rolled around he was in a back up role. Around mid-season he had a monster game against the Colts and his cards went nuts once again. He struggled the rest of the season and was released at the end of the season.
He bounced around for a few years. He had success with the Saints in ’09, rushing for over 600 yards and winning a ring. But ultimately ended up out of the league.
This card still brings back memories of when it was the card to have for a few short days in the fall of ’06.
