Overview

Tim Brown's cards and autographed memorabilia have a tremendous following by both collegiate and pro collectors. He spent all but one of his 17 years in the NFL with the Los Angeles/Oakland Raiders franchise. During that time, he was selected to the Pro Bowl nine times and retired with 19,683 all-purpose yards and 105 touchdowns. Brown was also a two-time All-American at Notre Dame and won the Heisman Trophy in 1987.

Tim Brown has three rookie cards, all of which were released in 1989. He also has several other first-year insert cards from that same year and four of them are part of the 1989 Score set. One of the Score cards (#305B) corrects an error that actually pictures fellow wide receiver, James Lofton. Additionally, he has a pre-rookie card from 1986 Brownell.

Tim Brown's first certified autograph card was issued in the 1991 Heisman Collection I set. It is serial numbered to 200 total copies.

In 1997, Collector's Edge produced Brown's first memorabilia cards. He has two Game Gear Quad insert cards in Extreme. One features a swatch of game-worn jersey. The other contains a piece of a game-used football.

The other 1997 Tim Brown relic cards appear in Excaliber. Brown's Game Helmets inserts are short prints and have an announced print run of 249 copies, but they are not serial numbered. There is also a Tim Brown Game Helmets Autograph parallel found in the product. It is serial numbered to just 100 and is one of his most popular autographed memorabilia cards.

Tim Brown's autographed memorabilia has seen consistent demand through the years. New generations of Notre Dame and Raiders fans appreciate the contributions he made to their respsective organizations. He has been a willing in-person signer is also a frequent guest at sports collectibles shows and autograph signing events.

Professionally graded copies of this card receive a slight premium when returned in high-grade. Also, some collectors like being able to see the player's face on their rookie card. If that describes your preference, 1989 Topps is the best place to look for a Tim Brown rookie card.

Tim Brown Key Signature Attributes: An authentic Tim Brown signature autograph will exhibit several distinguishing characteristics. Regardless of  the type of item or when it was signed, look for the following signature features:

  1. A consistent signature with some unusual lettering but fairly legible.
  2. The "T" is written like a number "7."
  3. The "i-m" combination is discernible but he cheats a bit leaving a hump off of the "m."
  4. The "i" is dotted haphazardly.
  5. The "B" can best be described as looking similar to a large number "3."
  6. The "r-o-w-n" combine into a single character that looks like "now" or "non."
  7. The signature finishes with a short, trailing horizontal tail.
  8. He almost always inscribes his jersey number "81."
