It’s been a whirlwind couple of days for Aaron Rodgers. Super Bowl win. Party with teammates, coaches, family and staff afterward. Up for the MVP award press conference Monday morning. Flight to Disney World. Flight to New York. Letterman. Flight to Green Bay. Party at Lambeau Field.
Rodgers memorabilia has been moving on eBay, too.
A 2005 Topps Chrome autograph gold refractor drew 17 bids and sold for $3272.
JO Sports offered an unwashed Rodgers game-worn jersey from the Packers’ November win over Dallas. The asking price? $15,000. Don’t look for too many Packers Super Bowl jerseys to ever hit the open market, though. They went home with the players, who say what they represent is priceless.
eBay reported that Rodgers memorabilia sales blew away those of Ben Roethlisberger on Super Bowl Sunday, presumably even before the game was over. Aaron Rodgers autographed memorabilia is among the hottest.
The Super Bowl champions were feted–or about to be feted–on everything. Multiple commemorative magazines were being planned for distribution as early as today in Wisconsin. Rodgers and Jordy Nelson will adorn the cover of this week’s Sports Illustrated.
Mounted Memories announced via Facebook that it was rounding up players for autographs. “We are working on ten SB XLV Packers players for the March Chicago Sun-Times show. As soon as we have signed contracts, we will announce them,” a company official wrote.
Stadium edition Super Bowl XLV programs from Texas Stadium were selling on eBay for as much as $57.
Even NFC Championship programs were selling for two or three times face value.
Topps also unveiled more details on its Super Bowl special edition Packers team set, which will be ready later this month. The set includes a Rodgers card that pictures the MVP holding the Vince Lombardi trophy.
