Jeff Bagwell - Series 8 (Regular edition)
Nolan Ryan - Cooperstown Collection (Rangers edition)
Ricky Williams - Series 10 (Regular edition)
Priest Holmes - Series 6 (Red/Red variant)
Priest Holmes - Series 9 (White/Red variant)
Roy Williams - Series 10 (Blue star variant)
Troy Aikman - Legends Series 1 (Regular edition)

Mine have to meet a few qualifications:
Be a present/former member of the Astros or Cowboys.
Be a former Texas Longhorn.
Have a variant of that team's uniform. I made an exception for Nolan in his Rangers uniform because he's my favorite athlete...ever.

So there are more that I still need to get...

Craig Biggio
Nolan Ryan 2
Billy Wagner (If I can find the Astros variant)
Roger Clemens (Any/All of them)
Roy Oswalt
Andy Pettite
Lance Berkman
Drew Bledsoe (Latest series though I doubt I'll pursue it)
Emmitt Smith ($$$$$$$$$$$)
Julius Jones

No interest in guys that spent limited time with those teams (Randy Johnson, Carlos Beltran, etc.).

I've got the 6" Rangers edition from the first Cooperstown Series. The one I get from the third Cooperstown Series will have the Astros variant.

The 12" are too big to put on top of my desk.

I got Bledsoe and Carr!!



( not a collector though... gifts. It took me awhile to figure out what you were talking about )

EDIT:

I just took a close look at Bledsoe... I cannot look at the football for too long before I want to try and break it open to get to the chocolate inside. LOL... ( ehhh nevermind. )

Where can you find these? I've never seen a Texan player any time I've looked.

David Carr edition

Standard edition being sold on E-bay

The "variant" editions tend to be worth more because they're harder to find.

There's an Emmitt Smith Series 1 variant that sold for $2,300 at an auction. But that particular one is really rare.

Right now I have three David Carr figures, one each in Red, White, and Blue uniforms. That's it for the moment. I look at them all the time and I did buy a Joey Harrington figure when those were out. I turned him into a Dan Pastorini but IMO (with apologies to Dom Capers for using his trademark phrase) I didn't quite "execute" and so I pitched it. I've been studying up on how those custom figures are done because I'm thinking that's probably the only way I'll ever get me a Greg Bingham, Robert Brazile, Elvin Bethea, or Curly Culp. I'm pretty sure that we'll be seeing an Earl Campbell pretty soon and a Warren Moon. I was real excited to see that they were going to start making some classic players.

It's very cool
My wife just bought me the 12 inch figure for my birthday, very sweet. I was shocked, she saw me looking at it a while back and remembered and bought it. I didn't have a clue. Luv_ya, where did you find the Carr blue jersey? I have the white, and actually just got my batle red in the mail yesterday from the seller, but I didn't know there was a blue. I clicked on the links you posted, but all I found were the red and white.

I saw that. But I'd probably lump Bledsoe in the same group as Randy Johnson and Carlos Beltran. They didn't/haven't spent enough time with the team for me to give them serious consideration. I may not even pick up the Julius Jones if he doesn't stick past this season.

If they make an Earl Campbell with a tear-away jersey, it goes straight to the top of my list.

Actually, I used to buy these things by the case and sold them on Ebay. In one case a couple years ago (the Carr figs are pretty old) I got a Carr regular (white), a Carr variant (blue) and a Carr (blue) with a packaging error on it. It didn't have the sticker on the front of the bubble. No big deal, just makes it a little more rare. I actually bought THREE sets of the Super Bowl specials. My wife, son and I stood in the McFarlane line when the SB came to Houston. So I've got the complete set plus an error Carr and two more battle reds to boot.
Thanks for the link, Luv_ya.

It was from e-bay. I have also bid on the blue Carr variant that you gave me the link to.

I like the Sportspicks because they are so realistic. I'm waiting for the "David Carr on his butt" variant, though. LOL

Personally I REALLY WANT a No Helmet Eddie George!!!!!!
Want a No Helmet Urlacher too!!!

Can't see spending $200+ on it. I found one for less than a hundred bucks two years ago and was flat broke. I've kicked myself many times for not buying the Eddie.
Actually, I am considering selling off my other figures (other than my Roy Oswalt and 2 - hopefully 3 soon - Carrs) and just focusing on Houston players and my favorite players (Urlacher, for example). I have a fair amount of figures, I just recently starting pulling them out of storage which includes parent's attic, dad's shop, etc. They are actually all in good shape, the problem is that almost all of my figures are the standard issues, only a couple of variants, so I'm thinking they're not worth a whole lot.
