Reggie White Cards, Rookie Cards and Autographed Memorabilia

Date of Birth: 12/19/1961
Rookie Card Year: 1986
Investment Rating: 6.0


Overview

Traditionally, NFL defensive lineman haven't been the most glamorous or collectible players on a football team's roster. Reggie White helped changed the image of the of the defensive end position with his athletics and outspoken personality. His demonstrative play on the field ushered in a new era in football making the defensive end position one to be feared, respected and worthy of star power. As a result, Reggie White cards and autographed memorabilia have become quite collectible.

Reggie White got his professional start in the now-defunct USFL. His rookie card from that league is part of the 1984 Topps USFL set. After playing for the Memphis Showboats for two seasons, White signed with the Philadelphia Eagles in 1985. His NFL rookie card is in the 1986 Topps Football set. He has three additional first year NFL cards that were regionally distributed. They include cards from McDonald's, Frito Lay and the Philadelphia Police Department.

White's first certified autograph cards were released in 1992 Fleer Ultra. He has ten different autographs in the product.

His first memorabilia cards were produced in 1997 by Collector's Edge and Upper Deck. All of his cards from that year's Collector's Edge sets feature a piece of a game-used football. They also partner him with other standout defensive linemen.

His preferred memorabilia card is from 1997 Upper Deck Football. It features a swatch of game-worn jersey material. Despite not being serial numbered it is a highly respected card.

Reggie White died at the young age of 43. As a result, his autographed memorabilia has seen a spike in value since his passing. He was a willing in-person signer during his career. He also participated in a few autograph signing events. So while his signed memorabilia is available, it does command a premium.

Distributed as part of a tough-to-find box set, White is one of the key rookies in 1984 Topps USFL. Values for White and the rest of the set have held up very well since the league's collapse. This card is much more valuable than his 1986 Topps card, which is White's first in an NFL uniform.

White could have been part of the highly celebrated 1984 rookie class but opted for the USFL instead. Had he chosen the NFL, he would have been one more reason that the 1984 Topps Football set is so collectible. However, his first NFL card comes from another appreciated set. Centering of these cards is the most common condition issue. As a result, cards submitted for professional grading and earning high marks carry a premium.

Reggie White Signature Example

Reggie White Key Signature Attributes: An authentic Reggie White signature autograph will exhibit several distinguishing characteristics. Regardless of the type of item signed or when in his career, look for these signature characteristics:

Reggie White Signature Characteristics

  1. It is a fairly legible signature, written in cursive on a horizontal plane. White was  deeply religious and his signature is almost always accompanied by a Biblical scripture verse.
  2. The letter "R" is slightly larger than the other letters. It is formed so a small circular loop anchors the vertical lines and loops.
  3. The pen flows into a large "e" which can be mistaken for an "l."
  4. The "g"s are present but hard to describe. They also vary slightly from one to the other.
  5. The "i" is dotted and the "e" is smaller than the first.
  6. The "W" look like a narrow and backwards number "3" and then a traditional "w" shape attached.
  7. The "h" starts as a number "7" before starting the rounded hump.
  8. The "i" is again dotted. The "t" looks like a crossed "l."
  9. The final "e" is smaller than the other two.
