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.
