Buzz Building Around Tim Tebow’s First NFL Autograph Cards by Tracy Hackler

In the 48 hours since they released in 2010 Prestige Football, Tim Tebow‘s first NFL trading cards — especially those featuring his consistently-administered penmanship — have been buzz-building, bid-generating click-inducers on the secondary market.

And for every motivated buyer looking to add an early Tebow autograph to the collection, there is bound to be at least 10 other onlookers just curious to see what his first autographed NFL cards look like. It’s an expected phenomenon for one of the most talked-about draft picks in recent history, and one that’s been playing out similarly since early April with his Press Pass “draft picks”” autograph cards.

In its first product of the year, Panini America incorporated 11 different versions of Tebow certified autograph cards, all on-card or on-fabric, including five Collegiate Lettermen (the “T,” “E,” “B,” “O” and “W” of his surname), an NFL Draft, a Draft Picks Rights rookie parallel numbered to 99, a popular Pro Helmets Autographs, and NFL Draft, NFL Equipment and NFL Shield patch autographs.

Of those, it would appear that the five individual letters in the Collegiate Lettermen insert are the most difficult to find.

Early action on Tebow’s first NFL autographed cards has been brisk, with most selling between $115 and $200. Several of the cards, though, are sitting on eBay with lofty asking prices or with plenty of time remaining to bid, so it will take some time for a more stable market to surface.

But it’s never too early for a Tim Tebow autograph gallery . . .
