Dez Bryant

Date of Birth: 11/04/1988

Investment Rating: 7.0

Dez Bryant is many things, but he is definitely not boring. The outspoken and combative receiver is part Terrell Owens and part Pacman Jones. When he is on his game, he is among the best receivers in the league. But he has made a habit of letting his emotions control him and that is something that could eventually destroy his career. For now, fans and collectors are content to watch the show and see what happens next. Love him or hate him, Dez Bryant cards are popular with collectors and look to remain that way because of his productivity.

Dez Bryant attended Oklahoma State University and after two years, seemed on the verge of something big. However, due to impermissible interactions with former NFL great, Deion Sanders, Bryant was suspended for the majority of the 2009 college season. Soon after, he declared for the 2010 NFL Draft. Although at one point Bryant was projected as a top ten pick, and possibly number one overall, his off-the-field issues caused him to drop to the 24th pick, where the Dallas Cowboys traded up to select him.

Bryant performed well in the NFL during his first two seasons, but he still struggled with his immaturity. Multiple incidents led to many questions about how long he would be able to stay in the NFL. However, a breakout year in 2012 showed what he was capable of, and he continued that level of production in 2013 and 2014.

At this point, the only thing that can stop Dez Bryant is Dez Bryant. Fans and collectors hope that he directs that emotion against the rest of the NFL. If that happens, look for big gains in his card values.

There are almost 30 rookie Dez Bryant cards to collect. Over a third include Bryant's signature and comprise the most popular options. Besides official NFL rookie cards, Upper Deck has a few college-themed cards that are also popular: Exquisite, SPx and SP Authentic.
