Most Popular Football Card of the Year?

Auto Date Sunday, August 13th, 2006

With the release of Topps Football came the Topps Rookie Premiere autographs. Every year collectors look forward to this hard to pull set of autographed cards from the years top rookies.

This year is no different. The 2006 NFL Rookie Class is one of the most anticipated in recent memory. Reggie Bush, Vince Young, Matt Leinart, A.J. Hawk, DeAngelo Williams, Jay Cutler and others highlight a great offensive class. Even Topps compares this years class to 1983 (Dan Marino, John Elway, Jim Kelly) with the release of the 8306 insert set.

Reggie Bush is the most sought after player in this years sets. The Topps Rookie Premiere Red Ink Autograph which in the past was limited to 10 cards (No word on this years set), has been selling in the $950-$1300 range. There are five completed sales on EBay in this price range.

The black ink version has been selling in the $595-$700 range. A dual Reggie Bush-Matt Leinart red ink version sold for $1300.

The release of SP Authentic autographed patches later in the year may lead to these prices being eclipsed, but will not take away from the popularity of the Topps Rookie Premiere autographs.
