Panini recenlty posted an article announcing the arrival of their Tim Tebow 2010 Contenders Rookie Autographs back to their offices. Upon watching the video (see below), I noticed that Tebow had returned various inscribed versions of his Rookie Ticket and Rookie Ink autos. They featured such variations as “God Bless, Go Broncos, GB² (God Bless, Go Broncos), and some of his favorite Bible scriptures.

By the way, check out that awesome 1 of 1 Championship Ticket.

The resurgence of Michael Vick

The resurgence of Michael Vick
The resurgence of Michael Vick

Back in 2006, Michael Vick was the poster child for the NFL. His endorsement contracts included Nike, EA Sports, Coca-Cola, Powerade, Kraft, Rawlings, Hasbro and AirTran. At the end of 2006, Sports Illustrated magazine estimated Vick’s annual income between his NFL salary and endorsements at $25.4 million, ranking him just below NASCAR’s Dale Earnhardt, Jr. in a listing of highest earning athletes. He had reached the height of his popularity and then his world came crashing down.

Even before the animal cruelty case surfaced in 2007, Vick’s corporate status had started to deteriorate. Among the negative incidents was his middle finger gesture to Atlanta football fans in 2006. In August of 2007, Vick plead guilty to animal cruelty charges and was subsequently suspended indefinitely from the NFL.

Vick had now reached rock bottom. Facing 12-18 month is prison, on the brink of bankruptcy, and quickly becoming public enemy number one. While in prison, Vick’s income was reduced to wages of less than a dollar a day.

Fast forward to the 2009 NFL season. Vick had been reinstated by the NFL after his release from prison, and he signed a one year contract with the Philadelphia Eagles. Vick played 12 games, starting 1 of them in 2009. In December 2009, Vick became the Ed Block Courage Award recipient for the Eagles, an award voted by teammates. The award honors players who “exemplify commitment to the principles of sportsmanship and courage.”

Coming out of training camp in 2010, the starting job in Philadelphia had been awarded to Kevin Kolb after the trade of Donovan McNabb. Kolb suffered an injury, which allowed Vick to take over the starting job. In his second game as a starter versus the Jacksonville Jaguars, Vick led the Eagles to a 28–3 win, throwing for 291 yards and three touchdowns as well as rushing for a touchdown. He was named the NFC Offensive Player of the Month for the month of September. On November 15, in a week 10 Monday Night Football matchup against the Washington Redskins, Vick passed for 333 yards and four touchdowns, while he rushed for 80 yards and another two touchdowns. Vick threw an 88-yard touchdown pass to DeSean Jackson on the first play from scrimmage in the game, and went on to lead the Eagles to a 59–28 victory. Vick was named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week following his performance, and the Pro Football Hall of Fame asked for his game jersey to display after Vick became the first player to pass for three touchdowns and rush for two touchdowns in the first half of a game.

His huge performance on Monday Night Football has vaulted Vick back into the limelight of 2006. I am not sure his image is ready for corporate sponsors just yet, but he certainly is back to performing to his old-ways. As a person who believes everyone should be given a second-chance, I am glad to see Vick making the most out of his.

Take a look at some of Vick’s recent card sales (some of these could have been had for less than $25 in 2008) on eBay:

Review: 2010 Topps Chrome Football – 1 Box Break

[tab:Review]

Product Information

24 packs per box. 4 cards per pack. One Rookie Autograph per Hobby Box. Box prices have been around the $40-$60 neighborhood now, but was as high as $70 at release.

The Break

Topps recently released the follow-up to their initial football release – 2010 Topps Chrome. The product features Topps patented Chrome and Refractor technology. The set features 110 veteran cards and 110 rookie cards from the 2010 NFL Draft. Each box contains one rookie autograph card. Those come in a base, refractor (numbered to 50), black refractor (numbered to 25), gold refractor (numbered to 10), and superfractor (numbered to 1) versions. There is also an alternate rookie patch autograph (numbered to 25) version available for some of the rookies.

Additionally, each non-rookie autograph card has multiple parallel versions. Refractor (not numbered), blue refractors (numbered to 199), gold refractors (numbered to 50), red refractors (numbered to 25), and superfracotor (numbered to 1) versions are avilable for each base version.

Drawbacks

Much like previous releases, the 2010 Topps Chrome Football release features sticker autographs on their rookie autographs. Unlike their baseball counterpart who was able to move to on-card autographs for the 2010 release. A very hopeful sign that the football release will be doing the same in future releases.

The cards were produced far better than the baseball release and do not have the rampant bowing and off-center that was very prevalent in the baseball release. The surfaces of the cards are very condition sensitive and seem to have issues with scratches and roller marks.

Added Value

My box featured 9 parallel cards: 1 Blue Refractor, 7 Refractors, and 1 Rookie Autograph. Topps also added Rookie Retro autographs as added hits in some boxes. These cards features a reprint of some of Topps most famous rookie cards from over the years, featuring an autograph (sticker) on the card. A definite added bonus, that seem to be a very valuable addition.

Final Thoughts

Every year, Topps Chrome Football is a staple on the release calendar and the product rarely fails to provide a fun time breaking and collecting the set. With lots of parallel’s and chases cards inserted per box, the value of product is great around the $40-$50 area. As always, Topps uses their tiered rookie autograph system, so the chance of pulling some of the top rookies are slim.

I will be looking forward to more of the 2010 product, and I am already looking forward to the 2011 Topps Chrome Football set.

2010 Topps Chrome Ryan Mathews Superfractor Auto surfaces on eBay

He has the skills and abilities to be on of the best in the NFL. He replaced a legend on the San Diego Chargers roster when he was drafted in the first round of the 2010 NFL Draft. Ryan Mathews has very large shoes to fill and very high expectations to meet in just his first NFL season. Considered by most as one of the top rookies from this years NFL draft class, his sports cards have been selling very well so far into the season, despite his slow start to his career. His 2010 Topps Chrome Superfractor Auto is currently up at a 10-day auction, ending on November 3. While Mathews still may be considered a true project by some, there is no denying that the void that someone will need to replace in the Chargers backfield after LaDainian Tomlinson was released. Mathews has the makeup to fill that void very nicely.

After 2010 Topps Chrome Baseball left a sour taste in a number of collectors mouths, most of them tip-towed into their 2010 football counterpart. Topps decided to merge two products into their 2010 Topps Chrome release by adding a special Bowman Chrome subset to the product. These include base cards, refractors, autos, and refractor autos from some of this years top rookies. The baseball set featured a number of quality control issues – and from all early indication – those are not present with football product.

Here is a break down of some early sales on eBay of 2010 Topps Chrome Football items:

Clearly, the Rookie Reprint Auto’s have been a huge addition to the set and have been selling really well on the secondary market. Sam Bradford’s on field performances have helped the value of his cards steadily rise and slowly emerged as one of the better selling rookies from the class.

Early reports from case breaks have been indicating that the rookie patch autos are not inserted one per case like they have been in previous releases.

The holy grail of Tim Tebow cards has made it’s way onto eBay. His 2010 Topps Chrome Superfractor Auto is currently up at a 10-day auction, ending on 10/24. While Tebow has not been anywhere close to one of the top rookies of the 2010 NFL season, his card prices have held steadily through the first 5 weeks of the season, and he has seemed to maintain his cult following of fan from his college days.
