Randy Couture Cards, Rookie Cards and Autographed Memorabilia Guide

Randy Couture

Date of Birth: 6/22/1963
Rookie Card Year: 1998
Investment Rating: 6.0


Overview

Before MMA was seen as a mainstream sport, Randy Couture ruled the octagon. He is recognized as helping put the sport on the map and is treated as the sport's proverbial godfathers. As a result, there is strong demand for Randy Couture trading cards and autographed memorabilia. Since retiring from the ring, he has enjoyed cross-over success in a couple of feature films. He will always be an iconic MMA name.

While Randy Couture does not have an official rookie card, his popularity and accomplishments in UFC have made him an integral part of several multi-sport trading card products including 2006 Topps Allen & Ginter, 2008 Donruss Americana and 2008 Sportkings, to name a few. The first Randy Couture trading card, however, was in the little-known 1998 Culture House Heroes of Wrestling. Before becoming involved with MMA, Couture was an accomplished Greco-Roman wrestler.

It would not be until 2009 that Couture would have his first licensed UFC cards. 2009 Topps UFC Round 1 includes a base card of Couture and two autographs.

Enjoying celebrity status as an athlete and semi-movie star ensures that Couture has plenty of autographed memorabilia in the marketplace. Signed gloves and photographs are some of his most popular items. Forgeries have been known to be an issue so caution should be exercised when shopping for his signed memorabilia.
