New Collections 2015: The "O" Quarterbacks

You guys probably know that I'm a Patriots fan, have been for a very long time.  I've worked on my Pats collection kinda on the sly desiring to focus more of my attention on the Angels.  And even my Pats collection has taken a somewhat narrower focus - pre 1990.  Don't stop sending your Patriots cards though!  I'll take any and all you want to send me.

Recently however, I've been intrigued by the rookie cards of two Patriots Quarterbacks: Old School Drew Bledsoe and newby Jimmy Garoppolo.  And intrigued by the fact that Tim Tebow was ALMOST a real Patriot.

I'll have to find a checklist for Bledsoe rookies, and obviously Garoppolo's rookie cards are still coming out.  Tebow had maybe a handful of cards made in a Patriots uniform, or with a Patriots logo on the card.  I'm not one to go all gang-busters, sell the house to purchase every relic and autograph and 1/1 out there.  I'm more of a base and parallel guy because that's what I can afford or get through trades.

Anyhow, here's what I've obtained so far:

Drew Bledsoe
1993 Classic Four Sport #91
1993 Classic Four Sport Draft Star Chrome #DS48
1993 Classic Images #129
1993 Collectors Edge Rookie Update #262

2014 Topps Chrome 1985 #3
2014 Topps Prime #118
2014 Upper Deck Star Rookies #15
2014 Upper Deck #62 Star Rookies

Again, new tab at the top for my Quarterback Want (or Have) List.

And with that, I think my New Collections for 2015 is capped off.

  1. Ah, I can be of a small amount of help here. I have a 2013 Panini Black Friday Lava Flow parallel of Tebow as a Patriot. Hit me up.
