Rookie Card Year: 2012
Investment Rating: 7.5
Heading into the 2012 training camp, all eyes were on Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III to lead a deep rookie class. With the fast emergence of another quarterback, that rookie crop is even deeper. Russell Wilson cards have quickly joined the top-tier of 2012 rookies. He may not be quite to the level of Luck and RG3, but his rapid growth with a strong Seahawks team could easily lead to bigger things in a hurry.
Seattle picked Wilson in the third round of the 2012 draft. After starting his college career at the University of North Carolina, Wilson transferred to Wisconsin. He helped the Badgers win the 2012 Rose Bowl.
Wilson was the surprise starting QB for the Seahawks at the beginning of the season. It was a move few expected, but an impressive preseason showing made it the logical choice. And it has paid off. On paper, Seattle already had one of the NFL's most impressive defenses. Marshawn Lynch is one of the league's better runners. Now, with Wilson's quick development, the Seahawks are primed with a balanced attack on both sides of the field.
Russell Wilson cards have enjoyed a very fast rise in the hobby. And as high as they've reached, they will go further in a hurry if Seattle sees more postseason success. The deeper they go, the higher prices will likely go.
