Investment Rating: 6.0


Overview

A wide receiving prodigy, Art Monk cards and autographed memorabilia are very collectible. He was the first player in NFL history to total more than 900 career receptions. He also holds, or was the first to achieve, many other receiving records. Primarily remembered as member of the Washington Redskins, Monk was a key part of the offense that won three Super Bowls during his tenure.

Monk's rookie card is part of the 1981 Topps Football set. He also has two food-issue cards from the same year. One is from Coke and the other from Frito Lay.

Art Monk's first certified autographed card is in the 1992 Pro Line Profiles set. He has a total of eight different autograph cards on the checklist, none of which are serial numbered.

His first game-used memorabilia cards were included in multiple 2001 Donruss products. One of his most popular cards is his autographed memorabilia card in 2001 Donruss Throwback Threads. It is limited to 25 serial numbered copies.

Art Monk autographed memorabilia remains popular, particularly with Washington Redskins fans and collectors. Footballs and photographs are the most commonly found items. The prices of his memorabilia saw an increase upon his induction into the Hall of Fame in 2008.

Monk shares the rookie spotlight with fellow Hall of Famer Joe Montana in the set. The 1981 Topps Football set is known for having centering issues. As a result, professionally graded cards returning with a high grade sell at a premium.
