Terry Bradshaw

Date of Birth: 9/2/1948
Rookie Card Year: 1971
Investment Rating: 7.0


Overview

Terry Bradshaw was the face of football for many years during the Pittsburgh Steelers Super Bowl dynasty of the 1970s. As a longtime host of Fox's NFL show, he continues to be a beloved figure in football. As such, Terry Bradshaw cards and autographed memorabilia still remain popular with collectors and fans, particularly those that bleed black and yellow as part of the Steeler's Nation.

Selected with the number one pick out of Louisiana Tech in 1970, his cardboard debut came in 1971 Topps Football. That year, Bradshaw had two other cards released, although because of their regional distribution, neither are considered to be official rookie cards. Player and team collectors do consider them important however, when talking about early Terry Bradshaw collectibles. The first of these is the 1971-72 Dell Photos #6 and the other being the 1971 NFLPA Wonderful World Stamps #319.

A willing signer throughout his playing days and a frequent member of the autograph circuit, there is no shortage of Terry Bradshaw autographs. However, due to his incredible popularity, demand remains strong and, therefore, so do the values. Items signed during his playing days including balls, jerseys and commemorative championship pieces do carry a premium. Game-used material from his carry command top-dollar at auction.

Terry Bradshaw Rookie Card

1971 Topps Terry Bradshaw

The Terry Bradshaw rookie card is presented with a striking contrast of vibrant colors, with the red border and the blue of sky in the background. It is iconic and well recognized within, and even outside of, hobby circles. The bold block lettering of the team name and dynamic yellow of the player name all combine to form a card that truly captures your attention. The condition-sensitive nature of the red borders means that they are prone to chipping, edge and corner wear. As a result, high grade versions command a super premium.

Key Cards

Terry Bradshaw Key Football Cards

A look at early Terry Bradshaw autograph and memorabilia cards reveals that his first autograph card was actually a part of a food promotion held by Tombstone Pizza in 1995. An extremely limited quantity of signed cards were randomly inserted into the packaging. However, it wasn't until 1997 that Bradshaw had his his first officially licensed trading card.

In 2000, Playoff produced several cards containing swatches of game-worn material of the Steelers legendary quarterback. Many of these cards paired Bradshaw with teammates like Franco Harris or contentious rivals like Roger Staubach. In that same year, Fleer and Upper Deck each produced a single memorabilia card of Bradshaw as well. A handful of memorabilia cards also include a Terry Bradshaw signature, some with print runs as low as 21, making for a truly rare and treasured collectible.

1997 Upper Deck Legends Sign of the Times Terry Bradshaw #ST5 Auto SP #/100

 

The Sign of the Times autograph card is limited to 100 total copies. Bradshaw also had a base card autograph version in the set as well. They rarely make it to the secondary market, safe in the hands of die-hard Steelers collectors.

 

 2000 Fleer Greats of the Game Feel The Game Classics Terry Bradshaw #3 Jersey

2000 Fleer Greats of the Game Terry Bradshaw

This is by far, Terry Bradshaw's most accessible first year jersey card. While others may be more limited, this is a card every collector can afford from this legend of the game. The black and white color scheme works to the card's advantage and showcases a small jersey swatch inset within a die-cut football. All the elements combine to produce a very nice looking card.

2000 Playoff Terry Bradshaw Super Bowl Souveniers Auto

At the opposite end of the affordability scale is this classic from Donruss/Playoff. Featuring an on-card signature and authentic game-used Super Bowl football relic, it is serial numbered to just 25 copies. However, Bradshaw does have a similar card in the set, with each commemorating a different Super Bowl, and it too is numbered to just 25 copies as well.
