Rookie Card Year: 2012
Investment Rating: 7.5


Overview

The moment he won the 2011 Heisman Trophy, Robert Griffin III cards and memorabilia had a long-term place in the hobby. However, most collectors are expecting a lot more from the dynamic quarterback as he easily became one of the poster boys of the 2012 NFL Draft Class.

Taken with the second pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, RG3 brings tremendous athleticism and a charismatic personality to the Washington Redskins. The combination of the team's passionate fan base, his college accolades and hobby prospectors have led to strong prices on all early Robert Griffin III cards.

Despite early injuries in his career, Griffin has shown he has what it takes to compete at this level and Redskins fans are anxious to get back to the teams winning ways.

Panini and Topps both used RG3 aggressively in the marketing of 2012 football products. Between the two companies, nearly 40 products contain an RG3 rookie card. Collectors have no shortage of options for Robert Griffin III rookie cards.
