Ray Rice Football Rookie Cards and Autograph Memorabilia Guide

Investment Rating: 2.0


Overview

Whether Ray Rice ever plays in the NFL again likely won't matter when it comes to collecting his cards and memorabilia. His image is not forever tainted by domestic abuse, something there is never an excuse for. It's a dark cloud that's going to follow the once promising running wherever he ends up.

After playing for Rutgers, Ray Rice was picked by Baltimore in the second round of the 2008 draft. He rushed for more than 1,000 yards in four of his first five seasons. During that time span, Rice was also selected for the Pro Bowl three times. Having signed a long-term deal with the Ravens prior to the 2012 season, he looks to be part of the franchise' s long-term plans.

There is no shortage of options when it comes to Ray Rice cards. He has more than three dozen rookie cards, which can range in price from a couple of dollars all the way up to hundreds. From a value perspective, 2008 Upper Deck Exquisite, 2008 Playoff National Treasures and 2008 SP Authentic are among the most expensive and coveted by collectors. For those on a tighter budget, 2008 Topps Chrome and 2008 Upper Deck are both nice cards.

Ray Rice Cut Signature Exemplar

Ray Rice Autograph Image

Ray Rice Key Signature Attributes: An authentic Ray Rice signature autograph will exhibit several distinguishing characteristics. Regardless of  the type of item or when it was signed, look for the following signature features:

  1. The signature is relatively consistent in character make-up with a right leaning signature.
  2. Classic cursive script is used through the signature; the pen lifts between first and last name
  3. The letter "R"'s sometimes vary in style but are usually equal in size
  4. The first "R" consists of a long first line that tails away to the left; that line is capped by the second at an upward angle of 45 degrees before beginning the down stroke
  5. The letter "a" is visible and often open at the top
  6. The "y" is clearly legible with a loop below the plane
  7. The second "R" is often more rushed and not always discernible
  8. The letters "i-c-e" are visible with the "e" typically closed and the "i" undotted
