On a side note, don't ever bother putting money in Flacco. That guy will never be huge in the collecting world.

As far as Kap goes I guess I can see your point, its just his cards are a lot more expensive now then they were. When I first started collecting him I could get an auto rookie for $10-$20, now its minimum $50 to $100 a basic rookie I could get 10 for $3 now they are 10 for $30 so there has already been a huge increase in his prices, I just am fearful to buy more at these higher prices. I think he is a good QB but thinking he may have a "sophomore blues" season next year.

As for "investment" quality QB's, young backups that you can get at a great buy are your rule of thumb, regardless what round they were drafted. Kirk Cousins was thought of highly enough by the Redskins to be taken in the 3rd round even though the team traded all of their picks, 2 water boys, and future considerations to Dan Snyders first born grandson for him. Ryan Mallet couldn't be in a better situation. When's the last QB NOT to do well there? It doesn't happen. Brock Osweiler is in a similar situation behind an all time great. The flipside of this is that you are going to have to wait on these guys. To call Mallet a bust is just silly talk. What do you want them to do? Bench a HOF QB still in his prime so they can play the kid? I remember when everyone called Aaron Rodgers a bust because he sat for close to 3 seasons.
At the end of the day, unless you are buying in mass quantities at wholesale you simply aren't going to make any money "investing" in football cards. I got out of the business side of the hobby about 10 years ago because it's a total crap shoot now. The great part is that I can buy pretty much any card I want as long as it's not a top 10 super hot card and I can get it at a great price. But I know Ill never get out of the hobby what I put in, which just wasn't the case 20 years ago.
