The Top 10 Most Collectible Football Players Of The 1990s

1990s sports card collector Zanoo23_sportscards on Instagram recently conducted a vote on the most collectible baseball and football players of the 90s. Here are the final top 10 rankings of the football vote:

  1. Barry Sanders
  2. Jerry Rice
  3. Brett Favre
  4. Peyton Manning
  5. Randy Moss
  6. Emmitt Smith
  7. Deion Sanders
  8. Dan Marino
  9. John Elway
  10. Steve Young

What does “collectible” mean to you? Largest collector base? Most valuable cards? What leads to high demand for a player’s cards? A couple thoughts:

  • Surprising to see Favre so high up on the list. Ahead of Manning?
  • Only 1 defensive player made the list in Deion. Another that came to mind for me is Reggie White. Similar to pitchers in baseball, defensive players get very little love in the sports card hobby overall. Will that change?

What would your top 10 be?
