The Hall of Fame wants his stuff. Adrian Peterson rookie cards are the hottest thing going on eBay. It’s officially the Year of A.P. in the N.F.L.
They apparently don’t have authenticators at each game site like Major League Baseball, but the Pro Football Hall of Fame is still looking to grab game worn memorabilia when something really big happens.
Adrian Peterson’s 296-yard record-breaking game last Sunday would certainly qualify, especially considering he’s a rookie. Now, the guys in Canton are hoping he’ll rush something their way.
Meanwhile, Peterson continues to be the focal point of those who chase current football cards. Some of Peterson’s 1/1 type autographed cards have sold on eBay for in excess of $1,000 with new listings continuing to explode.
Upper Deck has added Peterson to the November 14 release of Ultimate Collection Football (SRP $100 per pack). Collectors can try to tackle his Ultimate Rookie Signature card complete with the NFL shield from his Vikings jersey.
The company says Peterson will also be featured in SP Chirography Football (late December release, SRP $50 per pack). Peterson will have several high-end cards in this set, including a dual autograph card with teammate Sidney Rice and a Chirography Rookie Signatures card.
