The Centerpiece Of My Saquon Barkley Collection

We are still less than a month from the NFL Draft where the Giants took highly touted draftee RB Saquon Barkley with the number two pick. It's by far the most excited I have been about a Giants draft pick in a long time. Probably ever since Odell Beckham Jr but may be even bigger.

Since then, I have taken a ride on the Barkley train trying desperately to add his cards to my PC. So far I have three including a SI For Kids card. Not very much and a bit disappointing.

I am a bit surprised more haven't been thrown my way especially after updating my Trade Bait tab and I have been promoting it. Oh well, will add what I can when I can I guess.

Recently, @NFLAuction held a contest on all of it's social media sites for a signed Barkley SI. When I saw that contest, I was all over it on two of the three social media sites. I still haven't ever attempted Instagram. Don't think I ever will.

Late last week, I was messaged on Facebook from NFL Auction that I had won the Barkley. Yes, I had won a signed Barkley SI. Wow. Blown away.

A few days later the item showed up by Fed Ex along with a certificate of authenticity.
 
Still blown away especially having it in hand. By far the best Barkley item I have right now.

I still want to add an autograph card badly, but for now, I will stare at this. I will need to find a safe place to store it however and make sure the autograph is protected and won't fade.

By the way, check out @nflauction for their auctions on Facebook,  Twitter and Instagram. All sales from their auctions go to a good cause of the players and they have lots of great items available.

Now I need to ask, how would you guys display such a cool item? Let me know in comments!

Oh, before I close, Happy Mother's Day to all of those moms out there!

  1. Congratulations, a great prize for a Giants collector like you. With it being signed with paint pen you don’t have the same fading issues that come with other types of pens. I would think a nice shadow box would be cool.

    1. Thanks Billy!

      I gave up reading magazines. I had way too many to be read in a pile. I just don't have the time

  5. Congratulations! That's awesome that a true blue Giants fan won the contest. Personally, if it were me... I'd matte and frame that bad boy up.
