John Cena

Date of Birth: 4/23/1977
Rookie Card Year: 2002
Investment Rating: 7.0


Overview

John Cena is one of the most accomplished professional wrestlers in the history of the WWE. His magnetic personality and in-ring success have contributed to him becoming the face of the company. His popularity amongst the sports entertainment fan base is unmatched, even if he has many detractors as well. John Cena's appeal is so great that it has led to lucrative deals outside the ring including leading roles in action movies. It should be no surprise that John Cena cards and memorabilia are top-sellers today.

As the an 11-time World Champion and another three as Heavyweight Champion, Cena has shown little sign of slowing down. His contribution to the E! network's Total Divas show has further propelled him into the mainstream spotlight.

Demand for John Cena autographs is strong despite being a willing in-person signer and a key part of WWE signing events. Topps currently holds the license for WWE trading cards. As such, Cena has several autograph and memorabilia cards in the market. Unfortunately, all but one of his certified autograph cards thus far are done on stickers.

2002 Fleer Royal Rumble John Cena #7

The hobby has been hard-pressed to adopt rookie cards for wrestlers. That said, the 2002 Fleer Royal Rumble John Cena is his first mainstream licensed card. So even if it's not acknowledged as such, it's, in essence a rookie card. The card features Cena readying an opponent for a slam..

2005 Topps WWE Heritage Autographs John Cena

2005 Topps WWE Heritage John Cena Auto

2005 Topps WWE Heritage is the only set so far to have an on-card John Cena autograph. As a result, it is also one of his most popular cards. Relying on the tradition and novelty of the Heritage brand, the card resembles an old console TV.

2005 Topps WWE Heritage Ringside Relics John Cena

While many other wrestlers rely on costumes, face paint and outlandish robes for their ring attire, John Cena is a T-shirt and cargo shorts kind of guy. His T-shirts have been top sellers in the WWE for years. His first memorabilia card  is, fittingly, a piece of an event-worn T-shirt from the popular 2005 Topps WWE Heritage Ringside Relics insert set.

 2010 Topps Platinum Autograph Relics John Cena #1 #/275

This is the first John Cena card to have both an autograph and a relic swatch. It features Cena preparing to pounce on his nemesis Randy Orton. The basic version is numbered to 275. There are also rarer colored parallels.

John Cena Signature Example

John Cena Key Signature Attributes: Cena's autograph can vary, significantly. However, more often than not, it will resemble some form of the above example. When purchasing Cena autographs, look for the following signature features:

  1. The entire signature is written on an even plane with just a very slight lean to the right but is almost vertical.
  2. The letter "J" is always defined and pronounced.
  3. The remaining letters of the first name are usually absent.
  4. The last name consists of a highly individualized character that contains a sharp, but short up stroke, a long, left-to-right line, and a small loop at the bottom of the signature.

Other Signing Characteristics

  1. Early examples of John Cena's autograph are much neater, clearer and contain more discernible letters.
  2. His pen strokes are angular in nature as compared to being rounded.
