Phungo Roman Numeral Challenge I

In honor of the Super Bowl today we will be running a day long Phungo Challenge.

Today Super Bowl XLIV wil be played by the Saints and Colts. In recognition of this we are going to be running a challenge having to do with the NFLs continuing insistence to use Roman Numerals in the Name of the Superbowl.

Throughout the day I will be posting cards which represent different Roman Numerals. Your Goal is to figure out what the Roman Number is and give me the Arabic (traditional english) Number.

The connection could have to do with the Subjects Names, Numbers, Card Numbers, and probably some really odd connections that would only happen in my brain.

First Person to get each card gets a point, most points at the end of the day wins the challenge. The Prize for this Challenge is bragging rights in the Card Blogoshpere - Trying using that at your SuperBowl party tonight.

I have broken the Challenge into 4 quarters. This is the first Quarter and here are the first two cards. I think these are pretty easy.


I will try and get the 2nd 3rd and 4th quarters up at 12, 2, and 4 eastern today.

My original guess was that you were just going for XXVI = 26, but that's before I took Jimmie's first name into account (and saw PATP's answer!)

actually I should have been more specific. Each Card represents a different number.

I will give PATP the Jimmie Foxx Card - that is 20.

26 isn't what I was looking for on the Eckstein Card.

eckstein=xstein=10

Rod is up early on the West Coast and being a good Padres Fan got the X for Eckstein. We will be back at noon for the 2nd quarter - well done all.
