NFL Players & Coaches Collect Everything From Shoes to Slurpee Cups | NFL Films Presents


It’s human nature to want things And as you might expect people like collecting football stuff I’ve achieved the ultimate man cave to display my memorabilia and collections to celebrate the success of the Packers and a tradition of the Packers Collections ranged from the mundane to the slightly off-kilter. I collect socks. Here’s a beauty right here The Denver Broncos nobody realizes they’ve morphed from that to that Whether you’re into autographs stuffed animals Or even sweaty articles of clothing It turns out football players are just like the rest of us Real being on shoes I have a ton of shoes probably four or five of our closets at home Is dedicated to my shoes. Let me get my shoes. Y’all come take a look at my shoes man. I’m a Jordan fanatic Oh, yeah, I’ll check this out first though Y’all see them LeBron To Harry signed by LeBron, that’s the only problem. I have in the fashion world It’s buying too many pairs of Jordans. At my house in Jackson I have a ball. I’ll say about over 300 pair now I Bought over 300 pair and then back home in Detroit. I’ll say about 75 to 100 I have a walk-in closet, and it’s just layers and layers of racks of shoes I Probably wear 25% of my shoes. It’s like those shoes. I do wear is kinda like a rotation on us. I just keep Sneaker heads love their collections body and Soul and there’s no need to tread lightly when it comes to things people prized as kids Love collected marbels, all the real pretty ones that had so many different colors the boulder marbles that people talked about, I was a marble guy When I was younger 7-eleven Slurpee, cups you know they had the player names on them Rinsed them, stacked them. Those were a big deal probably every once in a while You didn’t fully rinse them and the two stuck together and then So they probably went out the trash. my generation in the seventies we had the max boxcars, so you know But like you know I lost mine pretty quickly soda bottles because you get five cents back for them back when I was a kid Of all the items that coaches treasured there was one common collectible I Got a million football, baseball cards football cards baseball cards collect baseball cards football cards we all collected baseball cards you know and football cards Ask my mom many times what the heck happened to my Cards cuz I had some great ones my most brother Jim and my brother John one day They got a big fight and Jim decided to take John’s Best property which was a Pete Rose rookie card and poke holes in the eyeballs that car’s not worth much anymore pretty big fight that I had to break up and my mom came out with the wooden spoon, so everybody calmed down We would set up all the baseball cards and around the field we’d position him a certain way And then we’d cut crayon and we would pitch the crayon to the other guy And you had the card and you hit the crayon I mean wherever it landed, we had a bunch of rules for there was a single a double and out or whatever and The cards got pretty marked up with crayons You know so our cards are never in good shape a lot of the older ones have a lot more Personal meaning to me than they would have to any other collector I played with them, so we had Johnny Unitas handing off to Jim Brown throwing to Mike Ditka against Dick Butkus They blocked and they tackled and they crashed into each other. There’s a lot of wear and tear on those cards Bill Belichick’s cards may not have retained their value But the coach who was one more Super Bowls than anyone else holds the most priceless collection in the NFL
