    But yeah... stay away from that Kellen Moore guy...
    I have a couple dozen of his rookies already, got them real cheap...was hoping he would take over for Brady at some point, but that seems pretty unlikely.
    I collect HOFs, 49rs, and hot rookies.

    I like Brock as well. Big TALL QB with a strong arm plus sitting behind Peyton can only help him down the road. I would have said Nick Foles, but I don't think he has much of a future in Philly.

    I second this. Osweiler has a great situation. Big bodied guy that is young (only 22) and gets to learn the offense and game while watching a future HOFer. In a year or two when Manning hangs it up Osweiler will be just 24 or 25, very well schooled in the offense, and taking the reigns of a team that knows how to win.

    I don't think so. The 49ers are a popular team w/ a lot of stars on both O and D. Kap is a good qb with a lot of weapons. Not only can he thrown, but he can run. I'd say he has another spurt in him if the niners hit it big in 2013.

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

    Agreed, not sure why but I never cared for Flacco and the Ravens, I am not a hater, just never cared for em...
    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.
