Kenny Britt is an explosive WR and has a knack for scoring touchdowns. Despite numerous off-field issues Britt remains one of the top red zone threats in the entire NFL.

The market for his rookie cards have remained somewhat soft because of the trouble he’s had staying off the police blotter. If he is able to mature and stay out of trouble his rookie cards could soar up in value.

Just based on what we’ve seen in Bradford’s first season – he has all the tools to become a great QB in the NFL. Even without major talent around him in St. Louis, Bradford was able to play well during most of his rookie season. It’s rare that card values of a player stay consistently high throughout a RC season, but Bradford’s cards are still highly sought after in box breaks & on the single card market.

The cards above are his main RC Cards, but keep in mind Bradford has many parallel cards and inserts from 2010 as well. Being a top QB in the NFL, almost any Sam Bradford card from his rookie season has some value. The standout cards are probably his Topps Five Star, Playoff Contenders, Upper Deck Exquisite, and Playoff National Treasures … they also happen to be some of the most expensive. Some of the more affordable RC cards will be his Topps, Topps Chrome and Topps Platinum. Only time will tell if Bradford can be a legend in St. Louis like Kurt Warner – but it appears he has all the skills to be a top QB in the league for many years.

Cowboys fans are expecting big things from Dez Bryant, who follows a long list of popular players that have gone through the lone star state. Bryant showed fans why he was a top pick by the Cowboys in 2010 during his RC season, before going down with an injury. Fans are anticipating a solid career with Tony Romo pulling the strings early in his career.

There were so many good cards in 2010, that it’s hard to pick his best RC. However, one thing to keep in mind is that Dez Bryant did NOT make it into Topps Five Star, which has some valuable rookies. That leaves National Treasures and Exquisite as the traditional premium brands people look towards when seeking a players top rookie card … and I think these are his best RC. There are tons of parallel cards, including Topps Chrome and Topps Finest that have multiple autograph versions that are also considered ‘rookies’. The list above is strictly from the main set.

If we had this website up in 2004 – we would have predicted that Ben Roethlisberger would be the best QB from the 2004 NFL Draft class which included Eli Manning and Phillip Rivers. After watching Ben play college football at the University of Miami (Ohio) it was evident he had the skills needed to be a star. In 2010 Ben led the Steelers to their third Super Bowl during his tenure at Quarterback.

Values of Ben Roethlisberger 2004 Rookie Cards aren’t as high as they were when he first led the Steelers to the Super Bowl in 2005. He has dealt with some off field issues that has hurt his reputation. Over the long term, his cards are a smart buy because he will end up with quite a few Super Bowl rings and will be a legend in the state of Pennsylvania for many years to come.

Johnny Knox teamed with Bears QB Jay Cutler in 2010 to form a dynamic passing duo. Values of Knox’s rookie card went up significantly in 2010 and collectors are hoping for continued success in the future. Knox rookie cards will hinge on Cutler playing well and getting him the ball.
