Pat Neshek is one that jumps into my mind who has a very impressive collection.

Josh Donaldson is pretty big collector from What I've heard back around the time when he won the AL MVP (6-7 years ago). Not sure if he still is.

I saw Bobby Bell (former Chiefs LB) selling cards at a card show in the '80s, and I'm pretty sure he was really involved in the hobby.  Sadly, he died just yesterday.

I saw a picture today of Evan Carter (Rangers Rookie OF) buying cards of his former minor league teammate Thomas Saggese at the Dallas Card show. Josh Jung (Rangers 3B) is also a known collector and has a very famous auto in 2023 Heritage where he drew "4-eyed" glasses on his picture along with the auto.
