Adrian Peterson Card and Memorabilia Guide

Date of Birth: 3/21/1985
Rookie Card Year: 2007
Investment Rating: 7.0


Overview

Adrian Peterson card and memorabilia collectors are among the most loyal in the hobby. It shouldn't be surprising considering he is one of the most successful running backs in the NFL. Peterson has been a focal point for the Minnesota Vikings and collectors since he left the University of Oklahoma. Given that he is still in his prime as a running back, Peterson should have at least a few more good seasons before his skills begin to decline.

Although Adrian Peterson card values are already on the high-end of the spectrum, a Super Bowl win could lead to a huge run on his football cards and memorabilia. When paired with Brett Favre in 2009, the Vikings came within one bad throw by Favre to making the Super Bowl. Now filled with younger talent, it may be a few seasons before the Vikings can compete in a stacked NFC North division. Based on that and the history of running backs once they reach 30 years old, the window is closing quickly for Adrian Peterson card values to rise to the next level.

As it stands, Peterson's best opportunity for a strong boost, other than a title, would be to break high-profile career records or winning an MVP award. Because of his tendency for injuries, it will be difficult for Peterson to keep up his regular production for an entire season. With no likely increase on the horizon, it is hard to recommend heavy investments in Peterson cards and memorabilia.

Adrian Peterson has 40 rookie cards in all price ranges. His top three rookie cards all feature on-card autographs and jersey patches.

National Treasures is another elite brand and a great option for Peterson collectors. Fundamentally, there is little difference between the Exquisite and National Treasures cards. It boils down to card design and your preferred card layout -- horizontal or vertical.

2007 SP Authentic Adrian Peterson Image

Don't let the higher print run fool you. The 2007 SP Authentic Adrian Peterson card is a collector favorite for the same reasons that make National Treasures and Exquisite popular.

  7. The remaining part of the signature is a flourish of letters jumbled together
