Adrian Peterson Card and Memorabilia Guide

Adrian Peterson

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.

Adrian Peterson Key Signature Attributes: An authentic Adrian Peterson autograph will exhibit several distinguishing characteristics. Regardless of  the type of item or when it was signed, look for the following signature features:

  1. Entire signature is on a right leaning slope of about 75-degrees
  2. The vertical lines of the letter "A" are narrowly spaced which accentuates the crossed line, that usually leaves a small opening
  3. The letter "d" is legible as is the letter "r"
  4. The remaining letters of the first name are not discernible but characteristically features a tall loop resembling the letter "l"
  5. That loop is actually the letter "P" of his last name
  6. The only other distinguishable letter in the last name is the letter "t"
  7. The remaining part of the signature is a flourish of letters jumbled together
