Overview

Ben Roethlisberger has seen his share of ups and downs. "Big Ben" was drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2004. After assuming the starting role in game three of his rookie season, he led the Steelers all the way to the AFC Championship game. Ben Roethlisberger card collectors have chased him ever since.

Although he was unable to win the big prize as a rookie, Roethlisberger brought Super Bowl victories back to Pittsburgh in 2005 and 2008. Inconsistency followed in the ensuing seasons, with the Steelers not even making the playoffs in 2006 or 2009.

Additionally, off-field issues added drama to the team chemistry and Roethlisberger's career. A motorcycle accident in 2006 almost took his life. In 2009 and 2010, allegations of sexual assault were levied against the star quarterback. Although he was never even formally charged, let alone convicted, Roethlisberger was suspended by the league for the first six games of the 2010 season for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy. In spite of these negatives, Ben Roethlisberger card collectors have remained loyal based on his winning ways and gritty play.

Ben Roethlisberger has nearly 50 rookie cards that will appeal to all budgets.
