Friday Hot List: Trent Richardson, NFL rookies and Danica

By Susan Lulgjuraj | Beckett Basketball Editor

A couple of rookies emerged this week, giving collectors other options for the newest draft class.

Houston’s DeAndre Hopkins and Cincinnati’s Giovani Bernard had good games in the last week to get collectors chasing their cards.

Hopkins had 117 receiving yards and a touchdown in a 30-24 win over the Tennessee Titans. Bernard had 38 rushing yards, 27 receiving yards and two touchdowns in the Bengals 20-10 win over Pittsburgh.

Collectors like options and these two players gave that to them this week.

Check out the rest of the Hot List below:

Football

Trent Richardson

The newest Indianapolis Colt found himself in a better situation. That led collectors on a buying spree of his cards over the last couple of days. Richardson was traded from the Cleveland Browns to a playoff-caliber team in need of a better running game. His stats and card values should get better

2013 Certified Freshman Fabric Autograph

There are two different subsets in 2013 Certified with fabric in the title, but it seems that the Freshman Fabrics dual jersey autograph cards are outselling the Fabric of the Game (autograph) cards in the early going. As certain 2013 rookies heat up, their Certified Freshman Fabric cards are looking good to collectors.

Baseball

Billy Hamilton

The Cincinnati Reds speedster is getting more and more attention as the season progresses. He stole four bases in one game and his season total is now up to nine (in just eight games).

Basketball

2012-13 Intrigue Intriguing Players Gold

The Silver inserts have done well with some of the top players bringing in about $10-$15 per card. But the Gold Intriguing Players parallels, which are numbered to 10, are commanding good money. These cards are numbered to just 10 copies and have sold for $50 or more. A Kobe Bryant Gold sold for $121.50.

Racing

2013 Press Pass Showcase Racing Danica Patrick and Dale Earnhardt Jr. cards

Pretty much anything with Danica Patrick or Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s name on it is selling out of 2013 Press Pass Showcase Racing. Autographs sell for $100 or more, memorabilia start at $20, but go higher. These two drivers have some of the top-selling cards out of Showcase Racing.

Sorry to say but based on some personal insights and research-And believe me I hope I’m wrong. But pack sales are down in many areas of the Midwest. More people are buying singles and inserts. I’ve been to shows in the last couple of years and have seen the same thing over and over. Show goers are looking for only singles. I-personally-have seen less people buying Packs and Boxes.

Unless these sales are going to online retailers-who are increasingly showing more sales and clearance prices lately. This is a distrubing trend. More and more I personally have seen money being saved to purchase high end inserts and singles. Now I do believe people can spend their money the way they want. But when I was younger and even to this day I love the visceral experiance of opening packs.
