It doesn't necessarily have to be your most valuable Broncos card (i.e. Elway 1984 Topps) on the free market.

But which of your Bronco football cards holds the most sentimental value to you?

It's a tough call for me, but I always liked Shannon Sharpe's 1990 Action Packed rookie card. Action Packed was the only football set that year that produced Sharpe. It's a preseason shot of Sharpe and he is sporting the number 1. So freaking cool!

These were 2 of my favorites when I was a kid.

I had the 1980 Orange Crush card taped to the top of a cigar box, in which I kept all my Broncos cards.

Rick Upchurch was my favorite player as a kid.

I've still got all my football and baseball cards.

I like this Mother******* Card

I think my favorite two are the 1988 Topps John Elway, I collected the whole set just by buying the packs, there was only one store in my tiny town that sold them so it was competition just to get them before your buddy did, the Elway was the final card I needed to complete the entire set, took me nearly a month to get it, I never had a double of it either, I really liked the 1985 Topps as well I thought they looked really cool

I've always liked Little's rookie. Design has a nice look and the photo is classic football pose.


I also make a few when bored. '83 Elway

As a kid this was my favorite, the odd pose just made it unique.

Score Supplemenal Bobby humphrey RC card--- the purple one.

I only have 2 football cards.... An Elway and Tomlinson rookie cards. With that said my Elway is my favorite :)

I have a set of 1991 Pro Line John Elway cards....normally they would be worthless, as most of the Pro Line cards are.

They had all the players autograph a few hundred of each of the cards.

That year they had a 9 card John Elway set.

I knew someone with an in at the company and I was able to get an autographed set of all 9 John Elway cards.

That and every TD rookie I could find ...

I had a card of Terrell Davis in a Georgia uni, but I lost it before he took his first snap as a Bronco. I remember looking for it during the preseason because he looked like he could be good.

I found one of him when he went to Long Beach State, should of bought on Ebay when I had the chance.

I went into a card shop the day after the 95 draft. I wanted a Rashaan Salaam autographed rookie. The shop owner wouldnt sell it, said it was going to be priceless. So I took a look at who the broncos drafted. The only autographed
Broncos rookie the guy had from that year was "some RB named Terrell Davis". I bought it for $2. HA!!! I came out on the good end of that one. That is my favorite card.

The Card of the 1977 AFC CHampionship game with Rob Lytle looking like he was going to throw on as the pic and the box scores on the back.

It also has the game score on the front Broncos 20, raiders 17!

Me too! My Elway rookie is by far my favorite football card, but I also like both of the Mannings rookie cards, my TD rookie, Emmit Smith multiple-company rookie cards, Troy Aikman Score rookie card, and my Shannon Sharpe rookie too. I used to like my Cutler rookie card, but the wife's a Bears' fan, so I gave it to her.

I have this with his signature, favorite piece of memorabilia easily

I've got 9 of the John Elway rookies....I always wanted a full page of them in my John Elway card collection.

I think I have close to 400 different John Elway cards....not including duplicates.

I quit trying to collect them all many years ago, but may try to start collecting them again someday.

The limited edition insert cards made it impossible to collect them all, but also produced some pretty cool cards.

When I was 13 I got my John Elway Rookie Card signed by him at training camp before the 1997 season, that by far, has to be my favorite.

I was scanning my cards to put into my photobucket and came across this gem... I know its of plummer but I love the jersey!!!!

I was bored during the draft, I know it's favorite actual cards, but with the hobby on it's way to being done, I figured this would be fun.
