Default The Incredibly Ascending Pierre Garcon

The Incredibly Ascending Pierre Garcon


Seems Pierre Garcon was catching more than just everything Peyton Manning threw his way in the Coltsí 30-17 victory over the Jets in Sundayís AFC Championship Game. He was also catching major hobby heat.

In a mostly breathtaking display of pass-catching prowess that at times looked recess easy, the second-year receiver of Haitian descent established an AFC Championship Game record with 11 catches for a career-high 151 yards and the Coltsí second touchdown.

And itís obvious now that Americaís football card collectors were every bit as impressed with Garcon as the Jetsí vaunted secondary was.

Late Sunday night and all day Monday, Garconís two autographed Rookie Cards Ė 2008 Playoff Contenders #216 and 2008 Playoff National Treasures #188 Ė were selling for as much as 85 percent above their current listed values.

Copies of Garconís more plentiful Contenders RCs, currently valued at $60, have been selling briskly in the $100 range. Meanwhile, the scant copies of his National Treasures RC, limited to just 49 copies, have sold for as much as $150 despite a current value of $80.
