I remember pulling a Junior Seau rookie card and a Troy Aikman SUPER rookie. Don't know what made it "super" since he was in 1989 products but it has to be one of the few times in football that they labeled stuff rookies that weren't really rookies.Trade Bucket: Hidden Content

Cool story behind mine, I was about 8 or something and I went into a store to get milk for my mom, as I was walking out the owner threw me a pack of cards. This was 1995 or 1996, but he gave me a pack of 1990 topps, must have been sitting around forever lol. Anyways I got back in the card and me and my friend were amazed at the cards, the one card I remember from it is below.

1982 Donruss, I remember getting them at the mall at the coin shop. It was mostly a coin shop and he would have a box or two on the counter. I remember Kent Hrbek was the card to get and also my friends and I liked the San Diego Chicken Mascot card.

I used to go to one in woodfield mall in Shaumburg, IL when I was young.
Since we did have autos and mem back in the stone ages, lol Most pharmacies or newsstands carried topps baseball or football. 7 eleven is also where I got most of my packs! All the topps was on an end cap! 25 cent for small packs and 35-45 cent for jumbo cello packs! Also, if anyone remembers, kaybee toys used to carry the 3-tier cello packs in a big bin. I used to pull them out and look for cubs on the top of the packs! Guess Ill get called a pack searcher, but i wasnt! There was no hits in those days, and 2 i was a kid looking to at least score some cards of the cubbies!Go Gators and Bears!
I only collect Justin Blackmon and I guess I am getting in the SUPER collector range of Alshon Jeffery! Over 40 autos and rising!

I super collect Marcus Trufant so please let me know if you have any of his cards minus base.

I remember opening 1978 Topps baseball when my family and me were stationed in Germany. I do remember opening a bunch of 1981 Topps football there too. Sadly, all my cards and comics never showed up when we moved to Florida.
