Andre Reed Cards, Rookie Card and Autographed Memorabilia Guide

Andre Reed

Date of Birth: 1/29/1964
Rookie Card Year: 1986
Investment Rating: 5.0 (Average)


Overview

Andre Reed cards and autographed memorabilia should see a small uptick in interest now that he was been elected to the Hall of Fame. Reed played nearly his entire 16-year career with the Buffalo Bills. He suffered through the team's highs and lows, just like their fans, which endeared himself to the team's fans. Reed was favorite target of another Hall of Famer, Jim Kelly. When he retired, Reed ranked in the top 15 all-time for receptions.

While Andre Reed has just one rookie card, 1986 Topps Football, he does have a few other regional issues from his freshman year as well. Player and team collectors will want to track down the McDonald's Tab cards. Available in four colors (gold, green, blue and black), these food issues can make for a tough chase. Additionally, Andre Reed also appears in the 1986 Topps Football Stickers set. He is #168.

Andre Reed autographed memorabilia has traditionally been very affordable and that shouldn't change. If anything, the temporary increase in demand related to his Hall of Fame induction, will create extra supply, ensuring that values stabilize long term. The old-school, bright red, Buffalo Bills helmet is a favorite piece to get signed as the contrast of  both Sharpie and paint pens makes for an attractive piece.

With its instantly recognizable design, the nostalgia of the mid-1980's is immediately on display. Featuring an in-game photograph from the previous season, the crazy color scheme is distracting but a collector favorite nonetheless. The green borders are prone to corner and edge wear making mint condition copies definitely worth having graded.

With a stated print run of 500 non-serial numbered copies, this is, by far, Reed's most coveted early autograph card. Autographed copies of the base card (pictured above for reference) are very difficult to locate. In addition to this autograph card, Reed is part of the 1991 Pro Line Portraits Autographs set.

This is another difficult to find card and is Andre Reed's first memorabilia card. Well ahead of their time, Collector's Edge inserted pieces of a game-used football from the Super Bowl into the cards. The exact quantity produced isn't known.
