Default Monday Morning Collector: NFL Week 6

Monday Morning Collector: NFL Week 6

Every Monday morning throughout the NFL season, we’ll select our rookie, veteran and breakout player of the week and provide a run down on why collectors should take notice. Here are our selections for NFL Week 6.

By Dan Hitt

Veteran of the Week:

Tom Brady, QB, Patriots
(380 yards passing, 6 touchdown passes)

It was difficult to choose our veteran of the week. Do we go with Drew Brees who dismantled the previously undefeated New York Giants or Tom Brady who should have silenced all doubters about his health with a shellacking of the Titans? Brady’s five touchdown passes in one quarter were just too strong to ignore. What an incredible performance against what many experts considered one of the best defenses in the league just five weeks ago. The Titans have clearly thrown in the towel, but a 59-0 score has been accomplished just once since the AFL-NFL merger way back in 1970!

Predicting movement on Tom Brady cards has been a real challenge lately since so many are priced at a level never attained by comparable cards. However, if you can purchase any quality 2000 Rookie Card at or near LO Beckett value than that’s a great buy.

Cards to Grab:
2000 E-X #122 RC/1500 ($120)
2000 Ultra #234 RC ($50)
2000 Upper Deck #254 RC ($60)

Breakout Player of the Week:

mmc6riceSidney Rice, WR, Vikings
(176 yards receiving including a 63 yard reception)

As Brett Favre goes, so go his receivers. Sidney Rice was being labeled a bust after two very disappointing seasons to begin his career, prior to 2009. Enter Brett Favre and everything seems to have changed with the Vikings franchise and for its young wide outs. While it’s far too early to change Rice’s label from bust to star, collectors are often quick to jump on the cards of such a player if he can string together some quality stats on a hot team. Sidney Rice and the Vikings appear to be just such a combination.

Rice’s best 2007 Rookie Cards (he has a ton of them) have been in the hobby cellar for more than a year. That means they were cheap enough to take some sudden leaps in value which appears to be in motion right now. Recent eBay sales on his 2007 SP Authentic RC and Exquisite RC indicate that enough collectors have seen enough from Rice to drive up values. There should still be plenty of quality 2007 Sidney Rice RCs to choose from at good prices that may not get the attention of the high profile cards. Here is our suggested list.

Cards to Grab:
2007 Absolute Memorabilia Rookie Premiere Materials Autos/100 #267 ($30)
2007 SP Chirography #117 AU/99 RC ($30)
2007 Topps Chrome Rookie Autographs #204 ($20)

Rookie of the Week:

mmc6nicksHakeem Nicks, WR, Giants
(114 yards receiving, 2 touchdowns)

Although the Giants were trounced by the Saints on Sunday, one bright spot emerged as rookie Hakeem Nicks had a break out performance. Nicks logged his first 100 yard receiving game and scored on a 37 yard touchdown. The Giants rushing attack was supposed to be the team’s offensive strength and the young receiving corps a real question mark going into 2009. But the top three receivers, Steve Smith, Mario Manningham, and now Hakeem Nicks have been tremendous surprises. Collectors have made Smith and Manningham targets of their hobby affections in the past month but now have Hakeem Nicks to consider as they sort out who will be the key player to collect if the Giants continue their assault on the NFC.

Cards to Grab:
2009 Certified #234 JSY AU/249 RC ($N/A)
2009 Donruss Rookies and Stars #214 AU/140 RC ($50)
2009 SPx #122 JSY AU/249 RC ($40)
