Latest addition was a freebie from volsguy16. We share a common bond in that we both collect Manning collegiate cards. For those of you who have not seen his collection (in the SCF Super Collector's Hall of Fame), it is worth a look. His collection is one of the most incredible collections out there.
Both of us needed the following card and he found multiple copies. Rather than holding one hostage or keeping the find for himself, he got copies for his collection, my collection, and the collection of another Manning collegiate collector. What a great gesture. The card is a 2000 Collector's Edge "Blue", numbered 15/75:

those are outstanding man.. I have a very small Manning collection, as he's been my favorite player since I can remember. Im' only 23, live about 30 minutes from Indy... so I started watching as he came into the league.. Completely envious of your collection. thanks for showing itCollecting Manning and the Colts

As I've said before, a lot of my collection is a product of being in the right place at the right time and having a lot of help from fellow collectors along the way. Collecting Peyton for 15 years also helps. Suddenly I feel old.
I have another GU collegiate card on the way. Hoping it will arrive this week. Thanks again for the kind words!

Latest addition comes from Press Pass. In 1998, Press Pass gave this card out at SportsFest '98. Although it is not serial numbered, the back states that the card has a production run of 1,000. The fact that it took me over three years to find a copy of this card for sale kind of surprises me considering that it is a low production Manning rookie year issue.
