O.J. Simpson Cards, Rookie Card and Autographed Memorabilia Guide

O.J. Simpson

Date of Birth: 7/9/1947
Rookie Card Year: 1970
Investment Rating: 4.5


Overview

Before his run-ins with the law, O.J. Simpson was a well respected and accomplished NFL running back. After his retirement, he successfully transitioned to an acting career appearing in multiple commercials and movies. His off-field success aided the popularity of O.J. Simpson cards and autographed memorabilia. And then his reputation would be forever tarnished after being arrested for the murder of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and Ronald Goldman.

O.J. Simpson's rookie card is in 1970 Topps Football. He has a Glossy insert in the set as well. Other sets with Simpson include 1970 Topps Supers, an over0sized set, and 1970 Kellogg's Football.

Simpson's first certified autograph can be found in the 1989 Goal Line Art card set. The card is serial numbered to 100 copies. He also has an autographed card in 1991 Pro Line Portraits. However, his most notorious card is likely the 1994 Signature Rookies Tetrad Autograph, which was signed by Simpson in prison as he awaited trial.

To date, Simpson has not had a memorabilia card produced.

O.J. Simpson's autographed memorabilia took a downward turn following his highly publicized trial in the mid 1990s. Simpson is a former Heisman Trophy winner and was the first NFL player to rush for 2,000 yards in a season. Collectors of those two niches are still willing to pay for O.J.'s signature.

One of the key cards in the 1970 Topps Football set, Simpson's rookie card, at one point in time, carried a significant premium. Collectors building the set in a specific graded condition are still willing to pay top dollar for the card. That said, with Simpson's name tarnished, it doesn't carry nearly the clout it once did.
