Sunday Six: Memorable (and cheap) cards from 1992 Pro Line Portraits


There are many sports cards sets out there from the past that aren’t valuable in the financial way at all but they can carry some intrinsic quality that should just resonate with some collectors anyway.

Maybe it’s just because Buzz ripped these packs in the past — or maybe because they are just so much more different than anything made in the years since — but one set that feels that way for me is 1992 Pro Line Portraits.

DarynColledge2A former Green Bay Packers lineman has opted to enlist in the Army National Guard, and, unlike many of his brothers on the offensive line, he has football cards for collectors to consider.

He’s Daryn Colledge, a 34-year-old, nine-year veteran of the league who was a member of the Super Bowl XLV-winning Packers. He started 137 games in his NFL career, also playing for the Arizona Cardinals and Miami Dolphins.

“After all my time in the NFL, traveling, meeting and supporting the troops, I’ve decided to step up and stand shoulder-to-shoulder with them,” he said on Twitter. “This was not a decision made lightly. We live in an ever-changing world and at this time in my life I feel it is best-served with me in defense of my family, state, country. With the support of my family [and] friends I look forward to the work and road ahead.”
