My USC Football collection was once my primary team collection but I now spend much more time and money going after Giants. However with Upper Deck's releases that feature past greats in the college football uniforms, I am excited about chasing some Trojan cardboard goodness.
I started at USC in 1989, right after Rodney graduated and went to the NFL but he was the first Trojan QB I followed as a Trojan as I got early entry into school. He had a great college career including being the first Trojan to win the Johnny Unitas trophy as the nations best senior QB and was runner up to Barry Sanders for the Heisman Trophy. He also played on the USC baseball team and was drafted 3 times (twice by the A's and once by the Tigers) but went the football route. He was solid as a pro but never reach star status but to me he is always my first Trojan QB.
Here are a trio of awesome recent issue cards I have picked up recently, all from 2013 Upper Deck Quantum:
