Athletically gifted and talented, Gresham has the ability to lineup at TE and sometimes in a WR formation. He’s also used to having good QB’s throw him the ball, as Gresham’s quarterback at Oklahoma was Sam Bradford, and many thought former USC strand-out Carson Palmer was going to be his QB in Cincinnati. Turns out Andy Dalton ended up with the job and the two have seemed to develop a nice chemistry, as they both made the Pro-Bowl for the 1st time in Dalton’s first season.

Gresham was one of the NFL players selected to attend the 2010 NFL Photo Shoot, so he has lot of rookie autograph, and other cards to choose from. Some of his best rookie cards are his 2010 Topps Five Star Autograph and National Treasures Autograph cards. Fans from his Oklahoma days would enjoy his cards from Upper Deck, as they feature him in his Sooners uniform. The above list includes all his main cards, and some of the cards that trade like rookies in as many sets as I could find. Also keep in mind that the jerseys pieces were not worn in an NFL game for cards made during Gresham’s rookie year.

Ryan Mallett autographed rookie’s and cards were collectible for the entire 2011 NFL season even though he didn’t play. He had many cards from Panini, Topps, Upper Deck and Leaf. His autograph cards traded at high values, often selling for higher prices than Andy Dalton – who made the Pro bowl. As long as he doesn’t play and sits behind all pro QB Tom Brady his card values will probably stay high. Matt Cassel, Aaron Rodgers and other QBs have sat for many years only to watch their card values go up once they got to play.

Ryan Mallett’s most valuable cards are probably his Upper Deck cards, his Topps Chrome autograph card along with his Panini National Treasures autograph card numbered to just 99 copies. Note that the above list has ‘material’ and ‘jersey’ cards listed, these are all jersey pieces that were obtained during the 2011 NFL rookie photo shoot and were not worn in an NFL game.

Cam Newton didn’t waste much time getting the attention of collectors by throwing for over 400 years in his first NFL game. Not that the #1 pick wasn’t already on collectors radar, but his play during the 2011 NFL season seemed to crank up his card values to another level.

It should be noted that recent #1 picks Sam Bradford, JaMarcus Russell, and even Matt Ryan have seen their card values go down in most cases because the pressure to succeed only gets greater as your career goes along. Cam Newton does have the ability to run and get touchdowns in ways most QB’s only can dream of, so it’s possible his values stay strong.

The above list only includes the main cards from the sets, including some autograph versions which are traded like rookie cards. Keep in mind there are lots of parallel and even some other sets that have Cam Newton cards. This list should get you started, and it includes all the major brands.

A.J. Green came in as the highest rated WR in the 2011 NFL rookie class, and he did just about everything for the Bengals in year one by going to the Pro-Bowl. He even had a rookie QB (Andy Dalton) and a 1st year offensive coordinator calling plays (Jay Gruden). Expectations will be very high for A.J. for the rest of his career – and very few WR’s can put up big numbers for many seasons like Jerry Rice or Tim Brown did.

Bengals fans had it good in 2011, and collectors were actually happy to hit a Bengals RC this year with both A.J. Green and Andy Dalton being top rookies during their 1st seasons. The pairs rookie cards almost sell for about the same amount of money, with the slight edge going to Dalton as of Pre-Season 2012.

This list consists of A.J. Green’s main rookie cards and other cards that collectors trade like rookies. Topps Chrome and Prestige are good examples of having a base card and an autograph that both are considered rookies by most collectors. Keep in mind this is not a complete list of his 2011 cards, but should give you a good starting point to hunt down all the parallel cards that exist.

Andy Dalton had one of the most impressive rookie seasons a QB has had coming out of the second round of the 2011 NFL Draft. Only Cam Newton out-shined Dalton, who made the Pro-Bowl during his rookie campaign. What makes Dalton unique, is his ability to get the ball out of his hands quickly on almost every passing down. Most QB’s learning a new system in a lockout shortened season wouldn’t have adjusted as quickly as Dalton did, but he lead a relatively under-maned Bengals team to the playoffs.

Expectations will be high for Dalton for the remainder of his career. Fans in Cincinnati have been waiting for a winning team for decades – and with the talents of A.J. Green at wide receiver, many expect the Bengals to be a winning franchise in the years to come.

During the 2011 NFL season, fans started to see that Dalton was for real – and started paying more & more for his autograph RC cards as the season went on. Much of the fan-fare was centered around higher draft picks like Jake Locker, Blaine Gabbert and Cam Newton, however as the season wore on, collectors appreciated Dalton’s play and he became one of the more sought after cards. His rookies sometimes sell for more than A.J. Green who was also in the Pro-Bowl and a much higher draft pick. Goes to show you that there usually a QB ‘premium’ & the value of their cards will often go up & down more than other players.

Keep in mind, Dalton has lots of parallel cards – and in some cases like Prestige & Topps Chrome – he has a base card, and an autograph card. This list should be a good starting point for you when collecting his cards from 2011.
