Andrew Luck Rookie Card

17 posts in this topic

I try to collect all the Peyton Manning cards but ever since he left I got dismotivated...lol. I am still interested in the Peyton Manning SP Authentic rookie card which I think is the most expensive Peyton one out there (even more now that he left)

It was $1500 a couple months back.

But now I want to collect the Andrew Luck rookie card but I dont know where to start. Im guessing that if SP Authentic holds the most expensive Peyton rookie card, wouldnt it be the same for Andrew Luck? Does SP Authetic still exist? I cant find one for Luck.

Any advice would help on collecting cards. Which brand should I get for Luck?

Im really interested in this one though:

What do you think would be the best Andrew Luck card?

2012 Sp Authentic will not be releases until about Dec, or Jan. Upper Deck has lost a huge foothold in the card collecting cirlcles. They no longet have a NFL liscense, which maens players can only be pictured in College uniforms. Pannini National treasures is a higher end product then Sp Authentic. It also has yet to be realsed for the upcoming season. The best 2012 products already out there at this time is Topps Inception, Pannini Elite.

Wow. In a year, that card will be enough to buy more cards like that.

Question: How do people put prices on cards and signatures like that? Do they get together and say "How about 1000? $1000 sound okay to you guys?"

Supply and demand.

It's only worth what others are willing to play.

Best way to gauge actual value of cards like this is looking at recent ended auctions on ebay. In my opinion that is more accurate than a price guide.

I did see some new rookie cards at a show at a mall that I didn't even know was happening, but back to the point a lot of the cards are out there are kinda horrible looking since they lack Logos and the NFL license.

For example:

Others are nicer because they have the license and such.

Thanks for the info. Im guessing SP Authentic wants the real game action for photos on the cards, right?

That cant be, since they do not have a nfl liscense. They just try and space out the releases over the full season. Sp Authentic is usually one of the last to hit the market.

I'm currently waiting for the Topps Finest auto/jersey patch. They should be out sometime in Aug. However, I might wait to see how the SP Auths or SPXs (if they even make them) Andrew Luck rc cards fair.

I really wanted one of those PM SP Auth rcs but they where just to expensive.

yea but might as well get them all since we dont know which one will be the expensive one. lol. Especially his rookie year. For Peyton, I have the ones where he won the Super Bowls and want the rookie card mainly. Wasnt too interested in the rest.

The basic Andrew Luck RC that will be worth having is his one from Topps Bowman Chrome. Everything else is ok but the Chrome stuff always holds value over them.

Yeah I hear ya, usually you can put your $ on the SP Authentic for some of the top tier rc cards, but they come out pretty late. There are also some good playoff series cards. It's tough because if you get a card right now before many of the others come out you might end up seeing one you like better but if you're a major collector you can just go grab one of his other cards down the road.

The playoff prestige auto rc looks like a very nice card and are available right now. Also the Topps Finest Jersey/patches should be out sometime soon. The pic of the Finest jers/patch I think is just a concept but it should look similar.

In my case it's very tough which one to choose because I'll probably just buy one premium Andrew Luck rc card. I'll probably wait a bit to explore my options and I'm really looking forward to see how the SP Authentic turn out.

If your lucky enough to grab a pack that isn't already bowed. Hate those dang cards. I've got boxes and boxes of chrome, not a single one of them is straight.

So can somebody post a pic of which one they think is the best to buy?

I think it's because of the finish on the card that makes it that way.

OK, so I have an autographed Peyton rookie card, as well as an autographed Eli rookie and an autographed Archie rookie card. They're all in phenomenal condition, but I haven't sent them in to be graded yet. I'm hoping they're worth some $$, but time will tell. As I check out some of the going rates for Andrew autographed rookies, they go anywhere from $100-1000 and up. Think the Manning family rookie cards are worth anything?

      Oh, the sky is falling and we are all doomed. Sounds like you are describing the Browns.
    • ESPN shows a troublesome Colts drafting trend...
      Sorry, ZTB,  I'm more confused than ever before.    The part I put in to BOLD doesn't make sense to me.   Luck was established as a franchise QB after Year 1 under Arians.      Since then here's what we've NOT been able to do.   Failed at building an OL,   that includes Holmes, Thornton,  Thomas and Cherilus as well as Herremans and I may be missing someone else.          Failed at building a running game.     That includes Bradshaw and Brown,  both of whom are very good complimentary backs,  but neither of whom are even average every down backs.     Neither can hold up as the #1 RB  on any team.     They're either injured or they wear down.   Failed at the 3rd WR slot.    Look at the list...  Avery,  Hayward-Bey,  Nicks and Johnson.    Four straight veteran candidates for the 3rd WR spot and all were judged to be not worthy of bringing back after just one season.   Failed at properly coordinating our offense.     Pep was an OK coordinator but we needed better.    That's a LOT of failure.   So here we are in Year 5 and while we have our established franchise QB,   but we have failed SPECTACULARLY at surrounding him with the proper talent.      We are STILL trying to build a proper offense around Luck and while that process has taken longer than we hoped and expected,   we put off building the defense until that was done and so we're behind schedule on both sides of the ball.   There's plenty to lament.     We're not where we should be.     And now that we've officially stopped building via free agency (we may sign 1 or 2 lesser free agents like Robinson a year,  but not more expensive guys)   then since we're focusing only on the draft,  that slows the process even more.     I think we're 1-3 years away from being a serious contender.        I'm sure that won't be a popular view and I hope I'm wrong about that.    But I don't see much reason for optimism here.....    I'm expecting the process to be slower than anyone here would like...      again,  I hope I'm wrong.  
    • Something no one is talking about
      Fair enough as far as that goes.     
    • tight ends
      Me too I'd love to see that but I am not counting on it. The only negative comment I've heard Pagano make about a player was Holmes Pagano is hard to take serious when he talks about his guys 
    • Which one most likely to happen...
      An Easy one.
      The sack numbers.
      Chud will make Andrew get rid of the ball quicker and run it near 50/50 most weeks.    Then again, after looking at our schedule, we are likely to be playing from behind a lot this season.
       More passing, more sacks?

      When I first saw this thread, I thought I was late to the party, but then I saw that this thread has been going since 2012.   I'm still late to the party, but story of my life.  I joined in 2015, but have been a Colts fan since I was a kid.   My first Colts memory is getting a hat signed by Quentin Coryatt at training camp, and that same year almost going to the SB.   My favorite Colts memory is beating the Pats to get to the SB in 2006.   Favorite Colts:   1. Peyton Manning 2. Marvin Harrison 3. Reggie Wayne 4. Dallas Clark 5. Brandon Stokely   Needless to say, Peyton (#1) and everyone he threw the ball to (#2-5) won me many, many fantasy football games, and are my guys for eternity.   You might assume from my top 5 Colts that I am a "new-age" "fairweather" fan who only likes offense and points.  You are wrong.  I am grateful for the offensive Renaissance in Indy, but Defense is my passion.  My secret top 5 Colts: Bob Sanders, Dwight Freeney, Robert Mathis, Cato June, Gary Brackett.   I want Henry Anderson to help lead a Defensive Renaissance in Indy.  Luck and TY are great, and I hope the OLine is outstanding, but the D is the Key.

      Hey guys,   I have been posting for probably a year or so now.  I reside in Brazil, IN, which is about 20 minutes East of Terre Haute on I-70.  I'm 28 years old and have been a Colts fan since Harbaugh days, but really started following and rooting hard for them after they drafted Manning in 98.  I love our team and my family and I make sure we are ready to rock for every game.  We always have viewing parties at my father-in-laws or my house and are known to holler and scream at the TV!  Hope all is well with all of you, and GO COLTS!
