Russell Wilson Rookie Cards and Autographed Memorabilia Guide

Russell Wilson

Date of Birth: 11/29/1988
Rookie Card Year: 2012
Investment Rating: 7.5


Overview

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 NC State, Wilson finished his studies at Wisconsin. He helped the Badgers win the 2012 Rose Bowl. And in just his second season with Seattle, the Seahawks were Super Bowl champs for the first time.

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. Now that he has a Super Bowl to his name, his values may have reached a peak. Whether they go further will depend even more now on his individual play.
