Autograph Of The Week: Blake Martinez

Blake Martinez was a tackling machine long before the NY Giants picked him up in the last free agency. A lot of Packers fans said how much they would miss him which only made me even more excited.

It was a long time since the Giants had any linebackers to be excited about.

Then I was concerned a tad that the buildup would be more than the play I would see and luckily I was wrong. He had 140 tackles, 1 int and 3 sacks but him leadership impact also played a big role on a much different looking Giants defense in 2020.

I was looking through my collection and realized it lacked an autograph of Blake.
 
So $3 later, I had one.

I had to make sure it was in a Stanford uniform as I don't want cards in a Packers uniform for my Giants collection and that's all that Panini made for 2020 with a Giants symbol on them. That I don't like either.

With this seasons pickups and what they already had in place, I am very excited to see what Blake and the defense can do in 2021.

  1. Blake Martinez was my guy in Green Bay. I was bummed when NY got him. He doesn't have a whole lot of cards, and I've never even looked for an auto. This is a nice one, even if it's not quite what you're looking for.
