    As a baseball collector, how can I get into football?

    I really like the design of the cards.

    So little information, so many possibly answers. What designs do you like? Modern or past issues?

    I've thought about this too and I'd really only get singles off of ebay. Boxes are expensive and it seems like most players besides QBs and WRs can be had for little money.

    Start with a base set and build from it by buying singles with inserts you like.

    And unless you're going for SUPER-SUPER stars, like Brady, Rodgers, etc. you'll find the prices are WAAAAAY lower in general...
    Currently looking for: 2012 Ultra football (1992 style) #31 Rudy and Gold parallel version of 2011 Bowman Platinum Chase Utley #94.

    Always looking for: 2008 BC Jake Peavy Orange Refractors /25, have 6 so far.

    Agree with much of the advice in that you probably want to determine what you want to collect. Have a favorite team or maybe a favorite player you want to PC? Maybe a favorite set or even a particular rookie crop to focus on. Once you have a focus then you'll get far more effective advice on how to proceed. I would start with either buying a few packs and see what sparks your interest, or shop around Ebay to see all that's out there and what you might want your niche to be. Without a focus, you'll have a tough time getting a real collection started. Good luck!
