Overview

Eric Dickerson was one of the most dynamic and entertaining running backs of his era. As a result, Eric Dickerson cards and autographed memorabilia are highly desired by collectors. During his career, which spanned from 1983 to 1993, Dickerson played for four different teams. He is best remembered as being a member of the Los Angeles Rams. He was named an All-Pro, six-times and was the league's rushing champion four-times.

Eric Dickerson shares the rookie card spotlight with several illustrious players in the 1984 Topps Football set. They include fellow Hall of Famers John Elway, Dan Marino and Howie Long. While not technically a card, collectors also gravitate to Dickerson's 1984 7-11 Disc.

His first certified autograph cards, like many players from his era, hails from 1991 Pro Line Portraits. Other early Dickerson autograph cards that are popular with collectors are those from 1997 Upper Deck Legends and 1999 Topps. The Topps card is part of the Hall of Fame Autographs insert set. Its release coincided with his enshrinement into the Professional Football Hall of Fame.

Dickerson's first game-used memorabilia cards were produced in 2000 by multiple manufacturers. A handful of these cards also include autograph versions. The most popular of these come from Donruss Elite and Leaf Certified.

Eric Dickerson was often an elusive and evasive person during his career. His charitable contributions and volunteer efforts are, however, well known. In-person signing experiences were a bit of a hit or miss during his playing days and that trend continues today. He does, occasionally, appear at formal signing events. Because of his numerous rushing titles, there will always be a demand for his signed memorabilia items.
