I don't know how many of you remember my post about four months ago where I showed off my UM card collection (which led to my meeting a couple great fellow collectors, so thanks again to those guys!) but I wanted to give the board an update on that mainly because of something I received today: the eighth and final card I needed from Cazzie Russell's 2011-12 SP Authentic By the Letter "Michigan" nameplate. Every one of these cards is a manufactured letter autographed by Cazzie and serial #d to 50 (except for the "M" for some reason, that's to 25). Today I finally got to see all eight together and I was pretty excited, so I hoped some of you might enjoy it as well:

So what do you guys think?
Since I was bored today I thought I'd throw up a board post showing off my burgeoning collection of Michigan cards and autographed memorabilia. I've been collecting since I was a kid, and in the last 10 or 15 years I've really focused on my alma mater. These Picasa albums (which I'm always updating, so please check in every now and then!) include my Michigan autograph/relic collections from the four major sports, plus important rookies, and finally my autographed memorabilia collection I've acquired over time (either in-person or via the internet).
I'm also curious to see if there are any fellow MGoCollectors around here that would like to show off their collections and/or trade. From time to time I pick up doubles that I don't need and would be happy to get some trading going.
For now, here are links to my collection albums, which I hope some of you enjoy!:
To give you a little taste, here's a sweet card I picked up after winning a bet with a Virginia Tech fan thanks to Michigan winning the Sugar Bowl:
