The Kansas City Chiefs chose offensive tackle Eric Fisher with the first pick of the NFL Draft. Fisher is just the fourth OT to be taken first overall since 1936, according to the NFL website.
While a need for the Chiefs, it’s not a sexy pick for collectors looking to invest. Tackles don’t normally drum up a lot of interest when it comes to collecting. These are the type of players that Chiefs fans would collect.
But they might have a hard time finding his cards.
Many of the draft prospects have cards in Leaf, Sa-Ge, Upper Deck and Press Pass, but Fisher has just six cards on the market.
By the way, Luke Joeckel, another OT, went second to the Jacksonville Jaguars.
