Anderson Silva Cards and Autographed Memorabilia Guide

Anderson Silva

Date of Birth: 4/14/1975
Rookie Card Year: NA
Investment Rating: 7.0


Anderson Silva has been one of the key faces of UFC in the organization's history. His dominating presence in the ring as well as his global marketability have made Andreson Silva cards and autographed memorabilia key collectibles for MMA fans. The multi-disciplined Brazilian, nicknamed "The Spider," is a master in Muay Thai and is a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

The earliest known trading cards of Anderson Silva come from the period of time when he was fighting with PRIDE, a MMA organization based in Japan.  He has two cards in their 2006 set, a base card and a foil insert. They are considered extremely rare and sell in the $100 range which is pretty amazing for a standard base and insert card. Silva's mainstream hobby debut came three years later when he was included on the checklists of both 2009 Upper Deck Goodwin Champions and 2009 Topps UFC Round 1.

Anderson Silva's autographed trading card from the Topps set is treated as a rookie autograph by collectors and often sells for several hundred dollars. It occasionally hits four figures. 2009 Upper Deck Prominent Cuts also has an Anderson Silva autograph in its Cage Fighters insert set, but these do not carry anywhere near the same value as his Topps UFC Round 1 cards. In addition, Round 1 also contains Silva's first memorabilia card.

As a premier fighter and face of the UFC, Silva's signature is always in demand. The organization is top-notch in the marketing of its fighters and facilitates numerous in-person signing events. As a result, Silva's memorabilia is plentiful but, at the same time, has not flooded the market. This allows his signature to maintain its value. Promotional fight posters, gloves, and pictures are some of the most frequently signed items. Promotional posters from key title defenses signed by both opponents often carry a premium.
