I have a few of them as well. I think they are great!
A couple of years ago I met Todd's father at the car wash of all places (it is a very funny story actually). Todd and his family moved to Calgary when he was 9 or so, and his parents still live here.
After chatting about Todd, and the figures for a while, I had asked him if they had any "rights" to retired players, namely Barry Sanders, and if they would ever make any. He told me that they were in the works for the "NHL" legends, but had only just begun to think about the NFL ones. I know that Barry created his own opportunity as being one of the 6 chosen, but I would like to think that I had a little
to do with influencing Barry's chance.
If you have only started to collect them, wait until you get into the "variants" and "chase" figures.
You can get addicted to snatching them up, everywhere from Walmart to eBay. Fun stuff though.
