Henrik Lundqvist Extra Signature

With the Playoffs going on so far, Henrik has been playing great, more than great.  His Extra Signature displays his immense talent with the ability to block all but four shoots making it hard to beat him in a shoot off.  Henrik is a must in anybody's team for Adrenalyn XL.

Pure Adrenalyn is Headed for the States!

I will be heading to the USA in the next couple of hours from my home land, Australia.  This means there will be more long gaps in posts for this blog but also means I can get hold of NBA, NFL and NHL Adrenalyn cards and more!  If you want to follow this trip, my Dad has this great blog he's running to document this trip so check it out!

 Groover's USA Holiday 2012

I'll leave you will fellow Australian's Patty Mills who is now a Spurs Player and Andrew Bogut who is now a Golden State Warriors Player.

What a bunch of legends!

Lionel Messi 2012 UEFA Champions League Top Master

Messi has been a beast this year so far.  He has just scored over 60 goals this season to be the first person since Gerd Muller of Bayen Munich in 1972-93.  Messi has scored 23 from his last 12 games which is crazy!  Here is his current Top Master with a high Attack of 110.

Euro 2012 Adrenalyn XL Out Now (Ages Ago)!

I haven't had internet for a few months but now I've got it.  During that period the brand new Adrenalyn XL set came out in Europe.  Euro 2012 Adrenalyn XL features European soccer teams and is also the first soccer set to have codes on the back for an online game.  The design is nice but if you ask me, it reminds me of India...  I have not seen any of these so far here in Australia but I'm sure you European readers already have these.  Here is a gallery of some of the cards from the set.

LaMarcus Aldridge Series Two Ultimate

I've decided to create a new post on Pure Adrenalyn which focus' on one Adrenalyn card.  It will look at athletes that have played well in their sports and look at one of their Adrenalyn cards.  Unfortunately, I can't do this all the time but I'll try my best. Anyway today the Portland Trailblazers faced the Dallas Mavericks in Dallas.  The star of the team which is obviously LaMarcus Aldridge, rose up in the last dying seconds of the game and shot the buzzer beater to beat the Mavs 99 to 97.

Peyton to the Broncos, Tebow to the Jets and Peyton has a Unknown Extra Signature?

The NFL world was shaken when the Denver Broncos signed Peyton Manning for five years.  This caused a trade with the New York Jets sending Tim Tebow to go to the Jets.  This was a big surprise for me as I expected him to go to a different team.

Whilst I looked into the trade I decided to look at their Adrenalyn cards from booth series'.  I managed to find a Extra Signature of Peyton Manning on Panini's website.  I've tried looking everywhere to find out how to get it but I have not managed to find anything.  If you look at it it says "ESPM" where the card number usually is.  Below is a pile of both their Adrenalyn Cards besides Peyton Manning's series 2 base and ultimate cards.  If you notice, both Tebow and Manning are the only two NFL Adrenalyn XL players to have a special extra signature.
