Rookie Card Year: 2010
Investment Rating: 6.5
Tight ends do not normally get the hobby love reserved for other offensive positions, like quarterbacks, running backs and wide receivers. As a result, Jimmy Graham's on-field success has not necessarily translated to high card values. However, after fairly consistent production throughout his career, Jimmy Graham rookie cards are seeing increased attention from collectors.
The University of Miami graduate was drafted late in the third round of the 2010 NFL Draft by the New Orleans Saints and put forth four strong seasons, including three Pro Bowl nods, before being traded to the Seattle Seahawks. He added another Pro Bowl with the Hawks in 2016.
Despite all the accolades and a high regard among fans (especially those of the fantasy football persuasion), Jimmy Graham rookie cards and autographs remain largely reasonable. Collectors have over 20 official Jimmy Graham rookie options, including three autographs. There are also several college-themed, first-year cards for Graham from Upper Deck, notably his 2010 Exquisite Collection and SP Authentic autograph cards. In fact, all Jimmy Graham autograph cards from 2010 products maintain interest.
