Ronnie Lott

Date of Birth: 5/8/1959
Rookie Card Year: 1982
Investment Rating: 6.0


Ronnie Lott is considered by many fans and analysts of the game to be the greatest defensive back in NFL history. That reputation carries over to Ronnie Lott cards and autographed memorabilia. His on-field accomplishments include being a ten-time Pro Bowl selection and four Super Bowls.

Lott's rookie card is from the 1982 Topps Football set. Besides his player card, Lott is also featured on an In Action subset card. Other early cards include two 1982 team-issued cards.

His first certified autograph card is part of 1991 Pro Line Portraits. The card is not serial numbered and an exact print run has never been disclosed.

Lott's first game-used memorabilia cards were issued in 2000 by multiple manufactures. A 2000 Playoff Momentum autographed jersey card is highly coveted by collectors. It is serial numbered to just 25 copies.

Ronnie Lott's autographed memorabilia has maintained its value through the years. Autographed footballs and jerseys are commonly found items. He does participate in organized signing events and is said to deliver a fan-friendly, in-person signing experience.

  1. Hi, I’m not sure who to contact regarding the autograph I have of Ronnie Lott. In 1982 I was in TJ Fridays in Cupertino, CA with my small son and a girlfriend. Ronnie Lott came in with a friend and sat at our table. This was in 1982, however, the year is not written on the TJIF napkin. It says, “To Michael, Best of Luck! with his signature, 42 49ers

    Can you point me in the right direction to see if someone wants to purchase this. thank you so much, Katherine 828-429-7739
