Good call on Madden, but I think it took until 2013 or thereabouts to get legends, so maybe we'll get some new pre-war collectors, but will take some time

I used to play a cool game on my PC back in the late 90s called NFL Legends. I have not seen anything complimentary since...except for Madden I guess.

Steve Sabol and his father with NFL Films helped fill in the gap!

Cool - I didn't play that one, but I just remembered "Super Bowl Sunday" from the 80s by Avalon Hill - that was a good one too - but I still mostly just played the recent super bowls - the historical bug didn't bite me until 20+ years later with All-Pro Football 2K8 by 2K sports.

Thanks for all the good replies. As always, it has proven to be educational. I think the main takeaway from this thread for me is the seasonal nature of collecting. Growing up, baseball and baseball cards were a part of summer. Football happened after school started. I didn't collect football cards as much as baseball cards as a kid. Only as an adult have I made the decision to revisit them. I never saw it that way before....

Baseball has been around since 1869.
Baseball was America's game for forever.
Photos of baseball players have been around forever.
Football was only popular in college until the 50's mildly popular until the 1970's and didn't become America's game until recently.
Kids collected and traded baseball cards with no value n the 50's are still alive today many trying to recapture their childhood.
Baseball has 9 individual players, all can be a star at any moment.
Football has QB's, RB's and receivers.
Football is shot mostly from a distance.
Baseball has close ups of every batter and pitcher every inning.

Maybe the 80's generation will pick up the pace in 2026. But capturing a childhood might be hand held games or flip phones.

I think it's two simple things for me. (I do buy football, but I won't pay much and I usually only collect my team, Detroit)

a. Short careers keep player collecting to a minimum.

b. Absolute value crash and disinterest the moment a player retires because of short careers. Any investment of consequence is completely foolhardy.
