Warm! and who probably has a good personality… NFL Week 3 Football Card Trading Update!
Howdy Jacksters! We are two weeks into the NFL season and with Week 3 upon us there a lot of questions new and unanswered from the “pre-season” that have not been solved.
Lets look at the best bet as far as collecting for Week 3. Cant miss players that will vary in cost to own. With varying levels of return potential.
CAN’T MISS LIST
Clyde Edwards-Helaire – Hyphens are hot right now… This Kansas City Chief Running Back landed in the best spot you can imagine as a rookie. His competition opted out. Edwards-Helaire was drafted in the first round, that means my mans did get paid! CEH is playing with arguably the best QB in the game, Patrick Mahomes. This super-star in the making has stepped into an offense under Andy Reid. Which has developed and enless list of offensive weapons, Russia has hacked him.
What does this mean as far as card value? In currently sales data, CEH is arguably 2nd behind first overall pick Joe Burrow. You want this guy in your collection? You are going to have to crack that wallet a little wider then you may want. I think it will be worth it.
I give him a Cost rating of 4-$$$$
Value and possible return rating of 5-$$$$$
Buyer Beware – He is a RB in the NFL. Like most NFL RB’s he will get Hurt… it does not mean you cant ride him for a few years and get that maximum return.
Chase Claypool – Go Stillers! Yinz guys didn’t see him make that 85 yd Touchdown catch and run? I saw some offensive pass interference and some payment notifications saying that my Claypool AUTOS had sold. When CC continues to be at least half decent the Steeler fans will pump the card value up! Guaranteed! Pittsburgh is starved for that next great WR. Since AB left the Steelers have had suspect WR play, at best…
Here is the plan. Get all you can of this rookie while prices are justified. He has no pressure to play and if Big Ben stays on the field this manimal will get 700+ yds and 10+ touchdowns. I think any fan of the black and gold would love to have it and can see him doing it already in this small portion of the season.
I give him a Cost Rating of 2-$$
Value and possible return rating of 4-$$$$
Buyer Beware- We all remember duck hodges and mason rudolph last year… its what Steelers nation has to look forward too. On the bright side the old new back up the rocket scientist Dobbs is back. Charlie Villanueva Anyone??
James Robinson – Who?? Excactly! Ole Jack gives ya the fire! Here is what I know about James Robinson. They released Leonard Fournette in Jacksonville (Sorry Ke’Shawn Vaugh) signed by the Bucs. He was undrafted and only has a few rookie cards. Panini Prizm Draft Picks (Autos only). Playoff Contender Draft Picks (Autos only) Score (Base and Auto).
This may be the only scenario where it’s okay to come back home with that box of 2020 Score. Your wife will be laughing at you while on the phone with her Mother who is saying to her simultaneously that she had always known you were a loser. Then you pull that Robinson /10 Serial Numbered Rookie AUTO, so you retort “You are as dumb as your mother! But less attractive…” Snap back to reality… you didnt pull a base and now you got a handful of worthless 2020 scores.
I just had checked my 2020 Scores and found one James Robinson. Possibly getting it sent to be graded. Just an FYI.
I give him a Cost Rating of 2-$$ (Right now, Pre-Thursday night game)
Value and possible return – $$$$
Buyer Beware- See Clyde Edwards Helaire. The emerging star known as Laviska Shenualt JR. He might steal a lot of touches and opportunities and make James Robinson a James White of sorts value wise.
Sterling Shepard – Saquon is done for the year. Slayton is down in injury. Here is what i see… Jones actually throws to SS. Evan Engram and Golden Tate are his other options and with options like that it makes SS look even better. The New York Giants signed a new RB this week due to the back up RB’s being hot garbage. His cards are trending up! Keep an eye out for him.
Joshua Kelly – He is this years Eckler. If you are reading this post I would have to assume you know what that means. Good receiver out of the backfield. With Herbert coming out as the starter after paying the medical staff to puncture the lung of Tyrod Taylor (speculation). JKell is going to get a lot of looks as folks keeping their attention on Herbert. Expect a boost in sales and value.
Laviska Shenault Jr – I had to put this dreaded any position monster on the list. Fact: I currently have no Laviska Shenault Jrs anymore. A collector on facebook traded me Zions and Ja’s and a bunch of football cards for him before the season had even started. I had 2 graded and 2 raw autos and over 20 additional base and parallels. I knew he would be good. Now you know!
COVID-2020 (Stay Away)
Saquon Barkley – My man got injured again… Just don’t overpay on Barkley’s rookie cards unless your a hapless GMEN collector. If that is the case I wish Good Luck to you!
Dede Westbrook – Yeah Unload him if you can. Literally came in as a 1st round pick and cant even make it on the field.
Ronald Jones II – Hey lets face it. It’s only a matter of time before Fournette takes over (At least I hope, as Leonard is on my fantasy team). Any major value increase is unlikely based on all the mouths to feed. If gronk cant get looks, you think Jones is ranking high on that list?
Any subjects you want tackled by ole Jack send me a comment, shout out or some love and let me know what you all want some insight on!
Thank you for checking me and Week 3 out! I appreciate the support and keep collecting y’all!
