What Colts gear/memorabilia do you have?


Recommended Posts

Just curious what Colts gear/memorabilia you have? I have lots but my prized possession is a signed Edgerrin James ball and a decent collection of trading cards have found over the years. My most recent purchase(Bought yesterday) is below:rock::D

Love the throwback all blue helmet.

Signed Gino Marchetti football that has every Colts title both Balt and Indy, have a ton of others BUT this is my favorite. Gino is one of the Balt Colts that embraced Indy (Along with Earl Morral) .

I hate you. Because I don't own that. ;-)    

 

I have one thing but it's great: somewhere in a box (after moving) I have a card with Johnny U's autograph. Meeting him was probably my greatest sports moment ever. It was at some sports card event and I just stumbled on it in the paper (90 mins away) and it was THAT DAY...I barely had time to haul * there and meet him as he was walking out. The weird thing was he was leaving and instead of being mobbed as I would expect, just a few kids were chasing after him for a last few autographs. To this day I regret not saying more than "thank you" as he walked off to his car, alone, where his and other cars were parked in this field, like some dad leaving a soccer game.

Don't have that much anymore. Gave a lot to younger family back in Indy when I moved back in-town. 

Still have autographed photos of Manning and Marvin. I refuse to give those up, at least for another 5-10 years. 

I have a bunch of misc autographs from the early to mid 90s somewhere. I should give most of those away if I ever take the time to dig them out. I'll likely keep Gusa's and Baldi's though. I had an signed photo of Edge too, but could not find that during the move. Either in a box somewhere, or one of my cousins or buddies got a five finger discount. 

I've given almost all of my jerseys away. Still have #18 though......

Signed Luck and Manning jerseys that I don't wear, non-signed Luck, Manning, Leonard and Unitas jerseys that I do wear (don't really wear the Luck jersey anymore though). Lots of Andrew Luck football cards including a graded 9.5/10 auto rookie of him numbered out of 25 (still salty on that one). Colts football helmet, a Manning rug thing I have hung up on my wall, a Colts blanket, and Colts rugs on the floor.

My favorite piece is the NFL miniature helmet.  I have 3, one is a Saints helmet, with Archie's autograph, One NY Giant's helmet with Eli's autograph and best of all, a COLTS helmet with Peyton's Autograph; all display in a nice covered case.

 

Have it in my Office and it always makes for a great starter conversation.

Actual Colts gameday football, that was caught by my father, in the grandstand of Baltimore Memorial Stadium.

Miami Dolphins at Baltimore Colts - December 11th, 1971

also... this was the game when Mike Curtis tackled the drunken fan who ran onto the field.

I have a large Colts card collection - focused primarily on Dallas Clark & Peyton Manning.  I tend to lean toward autograph and jersey cards.

 

I have a Peyton Manning autographed "Super Bowl XLI" mini-helmet - helmet - and - football.

 

I have 3 Dallas Clark autographed mini-helmets - and - one full-sized replica helmet that I am going to customize to a "Super Bowl XLI" helmet

 

I could sit here and type all day - but - those are some of my most treasured memorabilia.

In my display cabinet I have Colts game ticket stubs, cups, programs, hats, key chain, watch and mini helmet signed by Peyton Manning during his rookie year. I also have a framed picture and piece of a ball commemorating Luck breaking Mannings single season yardage record that is hanging on the wall of my man cave!

I have a Colts hat, Luck Jersey I haven’t worn since he retired, scarf they gave away at a game, sweat pants and a dry fit long sleeve hooded shirt. 
 

Honestly, NFL swag is so freakin expensive I don’t like to buy it. If I had a man cave I would probably get some memorabilia.

Awe man, you guys are fortunate to have all this stuff!  I do have sealed from new Marshall Faulk rookie cards (2) Edge rookie card, Peyton Rookie card, Marv rookie card, Reggie rookie card.  I have my game day official colts sweat pants, and hat.  I used to have alot more wears, but the wife has decided she is in charge of my clothing, and some disappeared without my knowledge.  If anyone is looking for a trade of a jersey, for a clothing coordinator, any generous offers will be accepted.

I suck compared to you guys. I have a 18, 88, and a 00 jersey with my nickname on it, all unsigned. numerous hats, hoodies T's, and a tin budweiser Colt's sign.

I do have a Colt's rubber duck that someone gave us 18 years ago when my daughter was born that seems to be a bit unique.

I collected cards in my youth, but only basketball and baseball. Stopped collecting any cards right around the time Peyton was drafted (just in time to still get some Kobe RCs fortunately). 
 

And then I picked it back up the last couple of years cause of COVID, except now I collect baseball and switched to football. 
 

So unintentionally, I missed the whole Manning and Luck era as a card collector, despite how much time and money I have invested.
 

Still plan to get different Luck RCs at some point though and put them in some type of display. No offense to Peyton or any other Colts’ great, but Luck will always be my favorite Colts player of all time.

I have never and will never buy any NFL stuff out of disgust for what the NFL has become in terms of tolerating thugs and other assorted losers. They will never get a nickel from me. But I still root for my Colts :)

Ouch, sounds a little harsh but everyone can/should be able to voice their opinion. So I was around the team from 1999 to 2010 working security during training camps. I really didn't see this acceptance of loser mentality at all especially during the Dungy/Polian and Caldwell/Polian years. The one year I worked during the Mora time it seemed a little more foolishness went on. I can tell you an incident (not the player's name) snuck a female into the residence hall where he was staying. Players turned the guy in to the coaches and at 2am said player ruined his football career and was kicked out of camp. I know this is true as I helped escort the player and his unwanted guest off the campus. I am not particulary religious but behind the scenes you would see players reading their bibles alone and no one around to act like they were putting on a show. Saw Rob Morris so hurt he walked like an 80 year old but took the time to walk the distance of a football field to meet with some fans who had drove from Utah just to see a Colts practice. I know this for a fact as I was the person who happened to meet the fans before practice and let Morris know about them after practice was over. I have so many stories similar to this. In fact the exception to the rule is finding a bad apple (at least during that time frame) on the Indianapolis Colts. They were not 100% perfect but pretty darn close.

I'm sure others have gotten this from Mr. Irsay-----an (autographed) $100 bill.  I have been hanging onto it for some reason....I'm thinking I may have to use it for gas sometime this summer....and I've had it like 6 yrs!

I get that angle. It doesn’t bother me though. The nfl pays men millions of dollars bc they can run fast and jump high. I personally never understood the desire to make athletes role models. 
 

The league is full of extremely bright minds.  Still, I hear some of these guys talk and I can’t help but think there is no way they wrote all of their college papers and passed their exams themselves. If anything there is a very generous curve applied.

lied. 

That isn't my point. I get that aspect and have no problem with it. I have however a severe problem with tolerating slimeballs.

Jus two months ago I moved from one office that i shared with someone to another and when i left was given a photograph of a game at the stadium that has a piece of a game sues ball in it.  I love it more for the thoughtfulness of the gift.  Its the first thing i hung in my new office.

    • I'm not as optimistic as you are in some areas lol.  I'm in a wait and see mode in several. And a prove me wrong mode until I see something different in a few.    Doesn't really matter. If we're good, everyone (most anyway) will be happy and forget about a lot of the stuff. If we're not, the same conversations will be had.   Perhaps we need a "Colts Negative" thread to go along with the "Colts Positive" thread lol.... It would be a safe place for all the neg nancies to vent. I don't think the Colts Positive thread has kept the sunshine pumpers from pumping sunshine in normal threads though 
    • Loved what Cross did, and there was some other stuff to like. But it's hard to get too cheery knowing it was our 1st team D vs their 2nd team O.    And let's be honest. On the first drive, Keenum drove them right down to the 5... and they went for it on 4th and 4. If Allen is in, that's a TD 99% of the time. It was Keenum though. won't call him a super scrub, but he's not a starter. And Shakir and Moss pretty much had their way that drive. Our DBs had no answer for Shakir.   And just not a lot of pressure from the DL. No sacks or QB hits at all from our starters. Expected much better vs their 2nd team OL. 
    • I have even been posting with a chip on my shoulder lately, grouchy at times, etc.. As a fan I am all in, in serious mode once September rolls around. I am on record saying AFC Title Game or bust for us, time to man up, etc..    I just think we have the QB, roster, and yes even coach to get to the Championship Game and then from there lets see what happens. Matt Ryan doesn't have that ring so I have a feeling he is going to have a big year, not so much statistically but just making big plays at crucial moments. I don't see Taylor missing much of a beat either, and I think Pittman will even be better. Hines will be our ace in the hole, bailing us out on many 3rd and shorts with the pass. I like our defense but not sold on it, I am concerned about Maniac because we need him. He creates so many game changing Turnovers. Overall, I love our team though. Only huge question mark is LT IMO, but Nelson plays on the left side so that should help.
    • There's always going to be debate, that's for sure. And yes, all sunshine and puppy dogs would be boring, and you wouldn't have much traffic lol.    Overall, I think most give rooks, new players (to the team), and new coaches/scheme, the patience they deserve.    Patience though gets shorter when folks get tired of trends, certain vets, or certain coaches. I have high hopes for Ryan/Reich. But I begin this season with the same pessimism about play calling and scheme. And that will remain until I see something different. Hopefully the addition of Ryan offsets that... But folks in general have become more skeptical of Frank the last year. And I think that will continue unless the O looks different. 
    • It most definitely isn’t. If Shakir balls out over the next couple of years and Pierce doesn’t Ballard clearly overvalues characteristics that don’t equate to production.
