NYG PC SPOTLIGHT: Darius Slayton

The NY Giants didn't have a lot of bright spots in 2019, but a couple of their bright spots were rookies. One the QB, the other this future stud WR from Auburn.

I was already a fan of Darius after the draft and felt there was something special with him. After grabbing a ton of his cards early on for those just in case situations, I found out I was right.

Darius posted great numbers with 48 rec with 740 yards and 8 TD's. And this is with him missing multiple games to start the season. I imagine he would have nailed down double digit TD's and 1,000 yards. But, at least I know what to expect for next season.

I have been pretty successful in adding Slayton cards this year by picking some up early through small purchases and multiple trades as many looked at him as a 6th round pick with no future. Well, he proved them wrong.

Here's my top cards for my Darius Slayton PC so far,

If you lost track, that was 16 autographs in that PC this year. Many are great looking cards that just caught my eye. 

I hope to see big things from Darius in 2020 to help propel this Giants team to be great again. I think they have a good nucleus of WR's right now. In the meantime, I will continue to grab what I can of him and get help from others in trades as well. I am collecting all of his cards and not just the hits. Those were just the spotlight of my PC for this post.

  1. Nice collection of Slayton. 16 autographs from his rookie year? You're approaching super collector status. The Rookie Neon Signs autograph is my favorite.
