Thread: An Addition to the Collection - Div. II Football Card

  1. #1

    Default An Addition to the Collection - Div. II Football Card

    It's a rarity when a D2 NFLer gets the honor of having a football card produced featuring him in his college uniform - they're just not desired as much as the NFL counterpart (even for big time schools). There's enough of a market though that cards can be produced, just not in the same quantity as NFL cards.

    I'd get into the nuances of collecting college cards, licensing agreements, and the model changes of college football cards - but I'll hold off. Just know that this is truly an awesome thing to see floating around and certainly wouldn't have been possible even 5 years ago.



    It will go well next to this one.




    I figured someone here might enjoy these - If anyone has any others to add, please feel free!

    Here's some more I've come across, if anyone is interested. Some of these schools might be NAIA at the time.

    Ronnie West - Pittsburg State



    Derrick Moore - Northeastern State



    Todd Collins - Carson-Newman

    Would this be a thread without this?



    I found where you can buy it too.

    I found some old Harlan Hill cards, but he wasn't in North Alabama Teacher's College uniform.

    I guess I didn't realize there were that many. Danny Woodhead makes sense though, he is the reigning king of D2.

    I found this on eBay. Not pictured in his Minot State get up though.

    I'd count it if I were making a comprehensive list.

    I'm not, because that sounds like a nightmare of a project, but still...

    Jim Kleinsasser (North Dakota) had one.
    Kevin Daft (UC Davis) had one.

    Does anyone still collect cards still? I use to as a kid, but now with the internet, I don't have as much a desire to collect. Of course I can see yall do, but I mean in the general public. I'm sure technology has killed some of it out for the majority of players.

    Yeah, I mean to some extent. It's certainly not as popular as it was.

    The hobby became too complex, which made it wildly expensive effectively leaving the younger crowd behind. Not to mention mergers, bankruptcies, scandals, licensing battles... it's amazing that the hobby still exists.

    I myself don't really collect anymore, I just keep my eyes out for cool cards like the one I posted - I don't really like to spend more than a couple bucks on a card.

    Huh. HSU had their own card set. That's kinda cool. Not a common practice among bigger schools, let alone smaller ones.

    Yea in 1988 Smokey the Bear set. A lot of west coast schools had Smokey sets in the 80's. I believe Humboldt was the only D2. You can sometimes find a few on EBAY or Beckett. But they are rare.
