For some time I have been fighting the never ending battle of team vs player collecting. I can't ever decide if I want to single out a player or two from my favorite team or go all out with just anyone. I have tried both ends of the spectrum and haven't ever decided which way to go.
For the Giants, I have collected Rueben Randle and Andre Williams. The problem there, Randle is now an Eagle and Williams might not make the team. Both very poor choices by me as I saw the upside in both players in future Giants stars and they now seem to be on their way out of the league.
Which I still will probably pick up their Giants stuff either way. Once a Giant, always a Giant. There just isn't anything past their couple of Giants years stuff.
But, I have also collected the team. There is a lot more options to find players in a Giants uniform, but the word A LOT stands out. There is a lot to collect that way as opposed to singling out a few players.
Now, there are players on the Giants I don't expect to ever leave and are stars of the league in Eli Manning and Odell Beckham Jr. Why don't I collect them exclusively, well, cost is the simple answer. Their stuff is beyond what I can afford.
So how do you guys decide for Team vs Player collecting? Which way do you lean and why? Or do you do both?
