Do I need to pay off my debts in collection to get new secured credit card?

I have a credit card debt, which is in collection and will be paid off in around 6 months or so. Now, if I want to work on my credit score and get a secured credit card for that, will I be denied? I mean, will I need to wait till the old debt gets paid off?
