Jimmy Graham Rookie Cards Guide

Jimmy Graham

Date of Birth: 11/24/1986
Rookie Card Year: 2010
Investment Rating: 7.0

Tight ends do not normally get the hobby love reserved for other offensive positions, like quarterbacks, running backs and wide receivers. Even on a high-profile offense like the New Orleans Saints, Jimmy Graham's on-field success has not necessarily translated to high card values. However, after his consistent production in the last few seasons, Jimmy Graham rookie cards are seeing increased attention from collectors.

The University of Miami graduate was drafted late in the third round of the 2010 NFL Draft by the New Orleans Saints and showed strong promise in his first year. His big breakout came in his Sophomore season, where Graham totaled 99 receptions and 11 touchdowns, to go along with over 1,300 yards. His outstanding play in 2011 resulted in a Pro Bowl selection. Jimmy Graham followed that up with another great season in 2012 and added another Pro Bowl trip in 2013.

Despite all the accolades and high regard among fans, Jimmy Graham rookie cards and autographs remain largely reasonable. Collectors have over 20 official Jimmy Graham rookie options, including three autographs. There are also several college-themed, first year cards for Graham from Upper Deck. While not true rookie cards, these are still in strong demand with collectors, notably his 2010 Exquisite Collection and SP Authentic autograph cards. Additionally, several first-year autographs can be found in products where Graham already has a base rookie card, so they are technically viewed as inserts or parallels. Those can be seen here.
