Jake Locker to wear #10 for Tennessee Titans

Jake Locker, the #1 Draft Pick of the Tennessee Titans will wear Jersey #10 as a Titan here in Nashville, Tennessee.  Locker wore #10 while playing college football for the Washington Huskies.  Vince Young has quarterbacked using jersey #10 during his playing career with the Titans.  Titan Fans welcome the hard work ethic Jake Locker brings along with his hard nose style of play.  New Head Coach Mike Munchak is quickly surrounding himself with hard working personnel to start his 1st year as Head Coach of the Tennessee Titans. The 2011 NFL Football Season looks to be an exciting year for the Titans if only the players and owners can agree to play football this fall.  Welcome to Nashville Mr. Jake Locker!

2011 NFL and College Football Cards Now on Pro Sports Website.

2011 HIT FOOTBALL CARDS ARE HERE!  Cards of future greats such as Jake Locker, Mark Ingram, Cam Newton, Ryan Mallett and many more have arrived.  We just got in our new shipment of HIT FOOTBALL CARDS today.  I opened about 8 boxes and got some great autographs in the mix.  Each box contained 6 autographs and one had 9 autographs.  The cards are nice just like in the past, and the inserts are very mixed.   I have found in years past that HIT FOOTBALL  seems to be the best mix of new rookies.  I have been putting sets of these together for years and am amazed to the value of the set that it holds.  I began putting sets together in 2004 and still am amazed at the superstars that have happened from that year. Eli Manning, Ben Roethlisberger, Phillip Rivers cards have maintained great value and is still a desired card by young collectors.  I have collected other brands for rookies but seemed to think that HIT produces the best opportunities for autographs and relic cards of the new prospects.
