    I'm not as deep in it as I used to be, but I still snag the odd piece on eBay. I've yet to grab anything of our 2013 draftees, but I'm sure I will at some point.

    I've managed to grab a few Locker sigs.

    The economy turned to crap, so I gave up collecting.

    I used to like the idea of these being a small investment, but now the card game has changed.

    If I could sale a Justin McCarins card for anything, Id maybe consider diving back into collecting.

    Thankfully, I'd never really viewed them as investments. The economy taking a down turn, and the Titans relatively small fan base means you can get some great cards for very little coin. When it comes to being a football fan I just enjoy indulging my inner child ha ha :geek:

    One of the things that pulled me away from collecting was cards with sticker autographs (see Zach Brown above). Almost every company went to sticker sigs at one point... I hate them and refuse to spend more than $10 on anything that features an auto sticker.

    I'm still unpacking from the move to California and I came across some old cards that I use to collect. Really it was my older brothers collection so it's mainly steelers.

    But I did come across a Drew Bennett card. And a rookie Jevon Kearse

    I agree about the sig stickers. All the players do now is sit down for an hour and sign as many stickers as they can and the company just slaps the sticker on to the card. I prefer knowing the player actually held the card and signed it.

    I stopped collecting around 2008. The last good rookie I got was a CJ auto. They're all packed away in a plastic box in my closet.
