Alex Brink, now a former NFL QB. Drafted by the Texans in the 7th round, tried out for the Jets and now plays in the CFL.

Going to go for getting as much as possible with him.. Not sure if I'm going supercollecting here... Might be.. might not biggrin.gif

Stats:

Total cards: 270 - Unique cards: 56/119

Misc stuff: 2 signed 8x10's

And unlike most supercollectors.. if people I know needs a dupe for a set.. It might be let go smile.gif

First card in the thread, and possibly the best one just of him..

Thanks guys smile.gif

To answer the both of you.. I'd love to lay out a story like "I know him" or "I have family from where he played college" or something like that. The only connection there is, is I got that card in Crpalmi's high-end break and thought "Alex Brink??!! Who in the world is Alex Brink??!!" The I saw some vids of him and I liked the way he played, have been keeping a eye on him since then and just the other day, I decided to collect him smile.gif Simple as that biggrin.gif

It's always interesing to find out the reason a less than obvious player is being collected.

I can relate being a Charlie Frye guy myself! Nice start but if this leads to you laying down big money (hard to believe it would with this guy - but you never know) don't blame this obsession on me! Last thing I need is Vibe emailing me cussing me out in Dutch for turning you to the drak side.

That being said...I'll check if I have any Brink at home and will send it your way if I do. Looking forward to seeing some more updates as you build this PC. Do you know how many different cards he has out there??

So many things to comment in one post! laugh.gif

First: Thanks Chris, and thanks for looking through your stuff for me smile.gif

Second: As far as number of cards go, beckett.com says 119 different ones.. so, I guess there's 119 tongue.gif

Third: Vibe is waaay to nice to cuss anybody out smile.gif BUT! If she does.. It'll most likely be in Danish seeing as we're.. Danish tongue.gif laugh.gif (I do know some Dutch, but not enough to write an entire rant in an email wink.gif )

And fourth: The Dark Side is the best side Chris devil.gif starwars.gif

Very very nice updates! And yes with a player collection, base are just as important and autos and game-used! Just not as nice or expensive. But still very important! Other wise its like peanut-butter with no jelly! laugh.gif Catch my drift. biggrin.gif
