Andy Dalton Cards, Rookie Card Checklist and Autographed Memorabilia Guide

Andy Dalton

Date of Birth: 10/29/1987
Rookie Card Year: 2011
Investment Rating: 7.0


Overview

Andy Dalton cards have been strong sellers since his debut. However, his values can easily go higher. He was one of several quarterbacks taken early in the 2011 NFL Draft. Although not as hyped as Cam Newton and Calvin Kaaepernick, Dalton quickly established himself as a player to watch with his mature play and great poise. Collectors have taken notice.

As he grows as a player and the team is filled in around him, Andy Dalton cards and memorabilia should see regular increases. Given his quick rise to starting quarterback, it seems the supply of Andy Dalton autographs has not caught up with demand so there are not many non-card signatures available now.

Collectors have more than 30 rookie Andy Dalton cards to choose from. Prices range from low-end cards to high-end collection cornerstones.

With a massive patch, on-card autograph, and print run of 99, the 2011 National Treasures Andy Dalton rookie card has it all. As a result, expect to pay a premium to get one. But as the quarterback's stock rises, so too will values on this card.

The 2011 Topps Five Star Andy Dalton has a smaller print run than his National Treasures rookie card. It also has a smaller patch swatch. The result is still a beautiful card, just not with the same overall pop as National Treasures.

2011 Timeless Treasures Andy Dalton Image

Although not technically on-card, this autographed leather piece is designed to resemble a football. The image of Dalton seems forced into the corner and hurts the overall look of the card. A limited print run adds to the appeal.

Andy Dalton Key Signature Attributes: An authentic Andy Dalton signature autograph will exhibit several distinguishing characteristics. However, Dalton's signature changes depending on the type of venue or environment in which he is signing. Most often this is a result of a time factor involved and/or number of people to sign for.

First Example Signature Characteristics

  1. A fairly legible signature with distinguishable lettering
  2. Over-sized letter "a" features one of the vertical lines with a slight curvature
  3. The pen lifts to start the letter "n" which flows into the letter "d" which consists of an up and down pen stroke
  4. The letter "y" finishes the first name with a bit of a curl at the end of the letter
  5. The pen lifts a second time for the letter "D" which is open at the top left
  6. The pen lifts again to start the letter "a" which flows into an easily readable letter "l" and "t"
  7. The letter "o" is implied and a small letter "n" finishes the signature

Second Example Signature Characteristics

  1. The entire signature consists of just five letters "A-D-o-l-t"
  2. The letters "A" and "D" are connected with the right vertical line of the letter "A" beginning the letter "D" which is now closed and used to cross the letter "A"
  3. A half of a letter "o" is distinguishable that flows into a standard cursive letter "l" and "t"
  4. This signature style is often accompanied by his jersey number "14"
