My Most Valued Spartan Card

I have been asked before what is my most valued Michigan State card.  It usually means more of a monetary value, but to me, it has more sentimental reasons.
1996 Pacific NFL Regime #32
Mill Coleman was a star wide receiver for MSU during the early 90s after playing quarterback in high school.  During his time at Farmington Hills Harrison, he won a state title and broke career state passing records. But before his days at Harrison High he was a classmate/friend/baseball teammate in Albion, Michigan of mine.  Yes, I have a professional trading card of a childhood friend. Pretty cool, isn't it?
While at MSU, Coleman caught over hundred passes over his career before a season ending knee injury midway through his senior season.
Professionally, he was a member of the Chicago Bears practice squad and later played for CFL's Montreal Alouettes.  Another knee injury ended his football playing days and now he helps run a football camp in the Detroit area.
