Robert Griffin III’s cards demanding big bucks


By Dan Good | Contributing Editor

Some of Robert Griffin III’s most sought-after cards are commanding used car prices.

The Washington Redskins rookie quarterback is one of football’s hottest stars – and he has the high-end cardboard to prove it. A Topps Platinum 1/1 autographed superfractor of RGIII is currently listed on eBay for a Buy It Now price of $10,000.

By Sunday morning, the seller had declined 11 offers for the card.

Another 1/1, this one a sketch card from 2012 Panini America, is priced at $2,995. The card carries Griffin’s penmanship. He drew a picture of a tree and wrote, “Plant your roots and watch them grow.”

Redskins fans have watched Griffin grow this season. Last week, the rookie ran for a 67-yard touchdown, leading Washington to a 38-26 victory over the Vikings.

Other Griffin cards listed on eBay include:

2012 Topps Finest Pulsar/Prism autograph refractor 3/10

    Sgt. White (U.S. Army) came in my store last Friday. He told me he used to collect but hadn’t bought anything in years. He just got back from Afghanistan and decided it was time to start collecting again. He bought one box of 2012 Topps Platinum Football and carefully open each pack. Near the bottom of the box, one pack had this white card with lots of writing on it. “What is this,” asked Sgt. White. I explained it was a redemption card and explained the process to redeem his card.

    “What did I get,” asked Sgt. White. I read the back of the card. It was a 2012 Topps Platinum Football Autographed Rookie Refractor Jumbo Patch Red Shield Robert Griffin III.” Card is a 1/1. Welcome back to collecting Sgt. White.

    Click on my name (Charlie DiPietro) to see Sgt White with his new favorite card.
