Where Will Cam Newton End Up? – Beckett Pricing Insider
The Carolina Panthers have signed Teddy Bridgewater and let go of their star Cam Newton, who had been their quarterback since entering the league in 2011. He won the MVP award in 2015 and also took Carolina to the Super Bowl that year. Cam’s stats have been pretty consistent his entire career although he has only gone over 4,000 yards passing once, in his rookie season. Injuries in 2019 cause Newton to miss almost the entire season.
Collectors have loved Cam Newton’s cards for several years. His autographs have sold higher than any other players from his rookie year. That said, his values have slipped in the past few years and don’t look to be going up at the moment. With a quarterback-heavy draft this year, along with several free agent QBs, the future for Newton is unclear. If he can sign with another team and get back to his 2015 play, collectors will be happy that they bought his cards when they were lower in value.
Here’s a look at some high-end Cam Newton cards from his rookie season.
