Immediately after being picked first in 2009 NFL draft, Matthew Stafford was anointed the Detroit Lions' starting quarterback. The new face of the franchise and the player the entire team is being rebuilt around, the resurgent Lions execute a pass-first offense designed to take advantage of Stafford's speed and arm strength. Despite a 19-21 record as the team's starting quarterback, fans in the Motor City hope that they will soon be able to compete in the NFC North Division.

An impressive college player at the University of Georgia, Stafford went undefeated in Bowl games and was named the MVP of the 2009 Capital One Bowl. Stafford chose to forgo his senior year and enter the NFL. With the Lions coming off one of the worst years in team history, it was a foregone conclusion that Stafford would be the number one pick. Stafford signed a six-year contract worth $41.7 million in guaranteed money, which, at the time, was the most in NFL history.

Stafford has more than 40 rookie cards in 2009 products. The investment potential is high because he's playing for a franchise rich with history and ready to be a contender. With so many different rookie football cards available, collectors on any budget will have no problem finding a card to add to their collection.
