Shannon Sharpe's first certified autograph card was released in the 1993 Pro Line Portraits set. It is not serial numbered and the exact print run has never been disclosed.

His first game-used memorabilia card was produced by Collector's Edge in 1996. The card features a piece of game-used football.

Shannon Sharpe became a commentator for CBS after his retirement. He has appeared at a handful of organized signing events. His Denver Broncos autographed memorabilia is very popular with fans and collectors of the team.

The Action Packed brand had a short-lived time in the hobby. The company used new design elements in an attempt to distinguish themselves from the competition. Embossing, rounded corners and gold card stock were just a few of the things the company experimented with. All of them were used in their 1990 set.
