LeGarrette Blount Rookie Cards Checklist and Guide

LeGarrette Blount

Date of Birth: 12/5/1986
Rookie Card Year: 2010
Investment Rating: 5.5


Overview

In four NFL regular seasons, LeGarrette Blount was a solid running back but he certainly wasn't making any waves in both the headlines and in the hobby. What a difference a couple of games makes. After finishing the season with a huge game and pushing New England into the 2014 Conference Championship, collectors have found themselves scouring their boxes of forgotten cards in search LeGarrette Blount cards.

Blount originally signed with the Tennessee Titans as an undrafted free agent in 2010. However he was waived before playing a single game. The running back was picked up by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and went on to become just the second undrafted rookie to rush for 1,000 yards. Blount's production dropped off in 2011 and 2012, in part because of injury.

The former Oregon Duck was given a change of scenery when he was traded to New England shortly before the 2013 season kicked off. The seventh round pick the Patriots gave up for Blount proved to be a steal. He rebounded with a respectable 772 yards and seven touchdowns during the regular season.

And then LeGarrette Blount arrived.

Closing out the regular season against the Buffalo Bills, he ran for 189 yards scoring a pair of touchdowns. Factor in his additional 145 yards on kickoff returns and Blout set a Patriots record with 334 all-purpose yards. But he wasn't done there. In New England's first playoff game against Indianapolis, Blount rushed for 166 yards. His four touchdowns set a team postseason record.

Understandably, LeGarrette Blount cards are on a tear following these back-to-back performances. It's tough to say what will happen over the long-term, but it's not like prices are ridiculously high at this point any way. Will they go higher? It's possible. Cashing in now would be easy profits. Given his play, one would have to expect Blount will continue to get the ball and be given every opportunity to shine, at least in the short term. Being a member of the big market Patriots certainly helps his potential as well.

Blount does come with history, though. He was suspended multiple times in college including a major one for punching a Boise State player after a game and getting into it with some fans.

LeGarrette Blount rookie cards can be found in a handful of 2010 products. However, because he went under the radar, he was left out of several sets as well. Topps included the running back in just one of their products, 2010 Topps Tribute. Collectors have just three autographed LeGarrette Blount rookie cards to chase. And while they're not official NFL rookie cards, Upper Deck included him in several of their 2010 NCAA products.

Top LeGarrette Blount Rookie Cards

2010 Playoff National Treasures LeGarrette Blount RC #265 Autograph #/99

Usually, the National Treasures rookie cards that draw the most attention come with both an autograph and a massive patch swatch. For Blount, it's just an autograph -- and a sticker at that. As a lower tier rookie, Blount has no rookie cards with jersey swatches.

2010 Playoff Contenders LeGarrette Blount RC #165 Autograph

Although not numbered, this card has a stated print run of 287 copies. The Contenders name and the Rookie Ticket Autographs carry a lot of clout, appealing to a lot of set builders. While the foil design and sticker combination isn't the most aesthetically pleasing, collectors will have to take what they can get as there are so few high-end options.

2010 Upper Deck Exquisite Collection LeGarrette Blount #166 Autograph #/65

As an NCAA card, this isn't a traditional rookie card. However, Upper Deck has done a lot in giving college cards much more mainstream appeal. Numbered to just 65 and signed on-card, the 2010 Exquisite LeGarrette Blount has a lot to offer. It doesn't hurt that the close-up shot and design are very strong as well.
