I don’t mean to brag, but I have the ENTIRE 1992 set of Topps baseball cards. I’m currently getting offers for TENs of dollars. Boise State is hoping their latest NIL-centric collector cards will hold their value a bit better, and put some of those dollars back in the hands of student athletes (who will then try to purchase my full set of 1992 Topps baseball cards—includes Fred McGriff!). At participating Jacksons Stores beginning on Friday, you’ll be able to purchase officially licensed Boise State football trading cards for $12.99 a piece (are they made of gold?!). Each pack will contain 14 cards and one in 10 packs will include a limited-edition autographed card. Jacksons secured all the licensing and handled the production, so that might explain the higher price point (Jacksons Bobbleheads were $12 or $7 with purchase of a soda)—the players get paid either way. Broncos like Scott Matlock, Zeke Noa, John Ojukwu, JL Skinner, and Riley Smith are some of the names in the pool of autographed cards…extra points for guys that have a cleaner and less juvenile looking auto than Kellen Moore (in fairness, he’s left-handed).
Also, an unfounded rumor that I started has at least one lenticular card of the Boise State OC…it changes from Tim Plough to Dirk Koetter when you turn it. Start breakin’, Bronco fans!
I’m with you as an old avid collector. Put my children’s college funds into full sets of 1990-1993 Topps, Donruss, Fleer, and Score baseball cards. I even bought 20 extra black and white Bo’s because they were “guaranteed” to be worth hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars in a few years. Hahaha. BUT as an old avid collector, there are so many unanswered questions: 1 – how many cards make a whole set? 2 – are their checklists available? 3 – can a whole set be made out of this “series 1” or do we have to wait for future… Read more »
I do believe that there are 100 cards in the “set” and 10 different auto cards, so it stands to reason that 110 would be the whole shebang.
I did a double-take on the price. However, as a true Blue homer, I will gladly throw my $13.77 down to pick up a pack. I am hoping for a signed Mike Atkinson card (fingers crossed – I smell bacon!!). I do hope they come out with the older players at some point. I want a Jarvis Hodge card!

Too bad you can’t purchase these online. I’d love to pick up a few packs, but airline tickets aren’t cheap.
Maybe I’ll get lucky and find some still hanging around the stores next summer.
I’m driving to Boise tomorrow so I can see my nephew play on senior night. Would gladly pick up a pack for anyone in the Willamette valley that wants one.
Also, I believe the correct term is not “Left Handed”. It’s wrong handed.
I’m in the Midwest, which is unfortunately not close to the Willamette Valley. Thanks for the offer, though!

I’ve got a full year Donruss 1988 set and Upper Deck 92 set. I’m kind of a big deal. Just ran out to Jacksons and picked up two packs of Broncos cards. I’m geekin out.
