Your unwanted Cleveland Browns QB autographs are worth a $100 gift card from Steiner


Johnny Manziel Signed Mini Helmet

By Ryan Cracknell | Hobby Editor

If someone offered to trade you a $100 gift card for your 2014 Connor Shaw autograph card, would you take it? Ready to throw in the towel on the Johnny Manziel Era and part ways with that signature you were stoked to land last year? Steiner Sports wants to talk.

The memorabilia dealer is offering a $100 gift card for a certified autograph of any of the starting quarterbacks the Cleveland Browns have had since 1999. This applies to both cards and memorabilia.

2014 Topps Chrome Connor Shaw Autograph

Steiner Sports will trade you $100 for this or any other Connor Shaw autographed Browns card.

The list of qualifying Browns autographs is long. And if you’re a fan of the team, it’s probably depressing. Steiner is willing to trade for Cleveland Browns signatures of any of the following players:

  • Derek Anderson
  • Jason Campbell
  • Tim Couch
  • Austin Davis
  • Jake Delhomme
  • Ty Detmer
  • Trent Dilfer
  • Ken Dorsey
  •  Charlie Frye
  • Jeff Garcia
  • Bruce Gradkowski
  • Kelly Holcomb
  • Brian Hoyer
  • Thad Lewis
  • Johnny Manziel
  • Josh McCown
  • Luke McCown
  • Colt McCoy
  • Doug Pederson
  • Connor Shaw
  • Brady Quinn
  • Seneca Wallace
  • Brandon Weeden
  • Spergon Wynn

There are a couple of conditions attached, though. The autograph must come certifed or authenticated by either Steiner, PSA/DNA, TriStar, JSA, Fanatics Authentic, Panini, Topps or Upper Deck.

Browns photos, jerseys, mini helmets and cards all qualify for Steiner’s Browns QB Giveback offer.

Items must be sent to:

Steiner Sports Memorabilia
c/o: Browns QB Giveback / Customer Service
10 Cedar Street
New Rochelle, NY 10801

There is a limit of one $100 gift card per household and the offer expires on Friday, January 22 at 12PM EST.

Full details for the program can be seen on the Steiner website.

    $100 cash would be better. You can’t buy anything good from steiner for $100, everything is way more expensive than that.

      Of course cash would be better, but they’re still offering quite a bit for something you might not be able to get $5 for. You might not be able to land a big-name autograph from them for $100 but there are lots of sales and even smaller items that might be more appealing to some that a card or dust-covered piece of memorabilia they no longer care about.

    Ok so fun question… Your life is on the line who is the one quarterback you take from that list to win you a single game?? Gotta be Dehlomme right?

  3. Jordan 8 January, 2016 at 11:31

    One of the guys on that list was the starting QB on a Super Bowl winning team, I’d go with Dilfer.

    It’s a cool offer. It’s like getting a $100 coupon for, basically, and I’m sorry to say this Cleveland fans, nothing. I’ll have to consider this (unless someone else wants my Connor Shaw Autograph…anyone…Bueller? (crickets).)

  5. Trey 8 January, 2016 at 12:34

    Ryan, a couple of questions.

    Can you confirm with Steiner that they’ll take autographed cards that Panini, Topps and Upper Deck have authenticated amd issued in packs? I’ve seen on their site that they would accept items from the memorabilia divisions of these companies (Topps Authentic, Panini Authentic and UDA) but nothing about the card side.

    Will Steiner destroy the items they receive? In the case of any trading cards that they get that are numbered and signed, it would reduce the population overall in the marketplace which may be beneficial to their prices in the future.

    • Ryan Cracknell 8 January, 2016 at 12:40

      I was following their Twitter feed yesterday and they confirmed cards were okay if they were certified. They didn’t say what they’d do with the items that were sent in. Even if a couple thousand people take advantage of the offer, I don’t think it will make much of a noticeable blip spread out.

    Congrats Steiner Sports, you’re about to become proud owners of the crappiest collection of cards ever.

  7. David Johnson 8 January, 2016 at 16:04

    That’s a great promotion, and I will have to see what I have to send in. The downside is that these “gift cards” are never eligible to be used on their sale items. They don’t say that, but when the big sales come up the sales always say “no gift cards” as Steiner is notorious for giving away gift cards as promotions.

  8. andrew 8 January, 2016 at 23:23

    their prices are completely absurd, which is too bad.
    the $100 gift card is probably worth $17.50 or so.

    would i rather have a brandon weeden contenders auto, or a luis tiant signed baseball?

  9. pacrimcollectibles 10 January, 2016 at 22:41

    Andrew, you’re missing the opportunity here. It isn’t as though you are spending $100 to get a gift card. If done right you’re discarding a nearly worthless autograph that you don’t care about to obtain the chance to spend on or toward something you really want. Is an autograph of Luke McCown worth sending in to get $100, even if what you can get in return may have a higher than normal price? Absolutely, at least in my estimation, which is why my McCown Finest auto is in the mail.

  10. andrew 11 January, 2016 at 11:58

    i have sent my junky card in, so i haven’t missed the opportunity, nor did i mean to suggest this wasn’t a worthwhile promotion. certainly, there is some equity to be had here, however, i’m just stunned at just how little there really is, after reviewing Steiner’s pricing, and learning that the $100 may not be able to be applied toward discounted, or sale items.
    i’ve priced a few pieces, but getting $100 off a $200 item that i can buy on ebay for $80 doesn’t work for me.
    how will you be spending yours?

  11. Mike 11 January, 2016 at 19:07

    Andrew, where did you see that the gift card couldn’t be used on discounted or sale items? I see in the rules on Steiner’s website that the gift card from the Browns QB Giveaway can be used towards any order. I just want to make sure I’m not missing something.
