Some feel that the professional leagues have become more about the athletes showing off and not playing the game. Because of this, they are more likely to be interested in collecting college items rather than the professional items.

Commemorative items that are collected from these games are considered very valuable. Often collectors value items that are associated with their alma mater. Since they graduated from the same school, they feel a connection with the college teams that is not there with the professional teams.
Football NCAA collectibles are also very popular. Many fans follow players throughout their college careers and into their professional careers. With highly televised games, NCAA football has developed a vast following. Because of this, many items from these games also become collectible.
