Any card collectors here??

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I have been ordering tons of cool saints cards on ebay lately. I used to collect as a kid but just recently in the last couple of months caught the fever again to collect. They make tons off cool ones ...

Any card collectors here??

I have been ordering tons of cool saints cards on ebay lately. I used to collect as a kid but just recently in the last couple of months caught the fever again to collect. They make tons off cool ones with jersey inserts, autographs, ect. Ill post some pics if anyone wants to see some. If anyone else collects I would like to see yalls as well.

Katrina took my childhood collection. I had some very valuable rookie cards... all down the drain.

It is cool to see some of the stuff they do with cards now-a-days. Uni inserts, game used ball swatches, autos.... pretty cool stuff.

Show what you got.

Re: Any card collectors here??

Well I usually buy just saints players on ebay but I decided to buy a few packs at my local card store. This is my pride and joy. The luckest pull of my life.... The odds were like 1:5000

Only 20 made in the world


Colston/Meachem dual auto


Drew Brees Probowl Patch 4/5


This one I really like, I just got it. Its a piece of the face mask that was cut with his auto

SUPER BOWL CHAMPS 2009 :)

I have been an avid collector for about 20 years plus. I couldn't begin to show stuff as I probably have tens of thousands of cards.

Re: Any card collectors here??

I am a big card collector. I, just like Papz lost all of my stuff in a big flood on the Westbank back in 78, but I've repurchased alot of the cards. My dad worked for the Parish and used to meet alot of the players back in the day. It was alot easier to get to them back in the late 60's and 70's. Had autographed picks from just about every big name Saint, Manning, Abramowicz, Hargett, Dempsey, Gilliam, etc. but so goes life. I'll try to take some photos today and post them for everyone. If anyone wants to sell something or an entire collection let me know.

Golf and sex are about the only things you can enjoy without being good at them.
