Can Adrian Peterson Break the NFL’s Rushing Record? – Beckett Pricing Insider
Adrian Peterson is currently fifth on the all-time rushing list. While Frank Gore is ahead of him, Peterson has fewer years on his legs and a better chance of getting close to Emmitt Smith’s record. If you asked anyone after his first couple years in the league, most people would have said that Peterson was a lock. Unfortunately for him, injuries and a year-long suspension threw a wrench into that. He has had a career resurgence with the Washington Redskins.
Peterson’s card values have taken a hit over the last few years but the closer he gets to the record the more those values could rebound. Washington will look to rely on Peterson’s running abilities while they get young quarterback Dwayne Haskins up to form. Time will only tell if he can continue his hot streak and if collectors show his cards the love they used to.
If he does, here are some Adrian Peterson cards you might want to keep an eye on.
