Fans and collectors have been patiently waiting for DeMarco Murray to consistently deliver on the glimpses of greatness that were on display early in his career. After a good 2013, Murray is off to a blazing start in 2014 and the market has started to pick up for the Dallas Cowboys' top running back.

After participating in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl following his high school career, DeMarco Murray made the decision to play college football for the University of Oklahoma. He played all four seasons of his eligibility and finished on a high note, rushing for over 1,200 yards and 20 total touchdowns in his senior year.  He entered the 2013 NFL Draft as an appealing early-round running back option and was selected in the third round by the Dallas Cowboys.

DeMarco Murray battled injuries and the depth chart during his first two seasons with the Cowboys. 2013 was a turning point as he remained relatively health and totaled 1,100 yards and nine rushing touchdowns. That consistency carried over to 2014 and he has been one of the top backs in the league. Given the media focus and considerable fan base for the Cowboys, if Murray keeps this up and the team continues to win, demand for DeMarco Murray cards will skyrocket.

While many of the 2011 Topps Five Star rookies are numbered to less than 100, the print run of the DeMarco Murray sits at 130. As a result, the comparison between it and his National Treasures rookie isn't much of a contest, especially when you factor in the small patch swatch.
