Overview

Marvin Harrison spent his entire 13-year NFL career with the Indianapolis Colts where  he was Peyton Manning's favorite target for several seasons. Marvin Harrison cards have room for growth in terms of value. He is a lock to be inducted into the Hall of Fame when he becomes eligible. His football cards and autographed memorabilia will almost certainly see an increase in value when that day comes.

Marvin Harrison was the 19th overall pick in the 1996 NFL Draft. All of his rookie cards are from that year. He has 29 in total and all are very affordable. None of his rookie cards are autographed, numbered or contain memorabilia.

Harrison's first certified autograph cards were issued in his first year but are not considered to be  rookie cards. This is because they're inserts and not base cards. Harrison has an autograph in 1996 Leaf Collector's Edition that has a stated print run of 2,000. Another autograph is in 1996 Skybox Impact Rookies.

Harrison's first memorabilia cards were issued in 1999 Leaf Certified. He has two cards in the product. One has a swatch of jersey material. It is not serial numbered but has a known print run of 300 copies. The other card is a one-of-one NFL Shield Logo Patch card.

Marvin Harrison's autographed memorabilia is readily available on the secondary market. Prices are commiserate with a player of his future Hall of Fame caliber. Footballs and photographs are the most common items he signs. Jerseys and helmets are also very popular but can be expensive.

1996 SP Marvin Harrison RC #18

1996 SP Marvin Harrison RC

1996 Finest Marvin Harrison RC #243

1996 Finest Marvin Harrison RC

The Finest brand has been a collector favorite for years. When first released, collectors didn't know whether to peel off the protective film or leave it affixed to the card. Examples submitted for professional grading, that still have the film, almost always recieve higher grades than an unprotected card in similar condition. The lesson here is, don't peel, especially now that that cards aren't exactly new.

Marvin Harrison Cut Signature Exemplar

Marvin Harris Signature Example

Marvin Harrison Key Signature Attributes: An authentic Marvin Harrison signature autograph will exhibit several distinguishing characteristics. However, the signature can vary depending on the type of item being signed. This is especially true with trading cards, where his signature becomes more abbreviated. Regardless of the type of item signed or when in his career, look for these signature characteristics:

Signature Characteristics

  1. The entire signature appears to consist of just a few pen strokes.
  2. The letters "M" often shows the greatest variance. The above example is the one you will see on most memorabilia items. It starts with a small hook at the the bottom left. It has a loop at the top of the right vertical line.
  3. The "a-r" combination looks more like an "o" and upside down "v."
  4. The signature finishes with a bow-like character.
