Andrew Luck’s first autographed Colts cards are hitting eBay and they are already getting some nice, fat bids associated with them.
Panini’s 2012 Father’s Day promotion features these first cards of the year, kind of strange that it comes from promotional packs, but that’s going to make these even hotter as they are harder to find.
These are the first cards featuring Andrew Luck in his new Colts uniform. Topps has come out with a set along with several non-NFL licensed products but none have Luck in the horseshoe. That puts a bit of a premium on these cards and you can already see from the prices on eBay.
His plain rookies numbered to 499 are going between $30 and $40 while one of his first Colts autographs has three days left and is already over $200.
Our friend over at FieldLevelView even pulled one of the first Andrew Luck Cracked Ice parallels which are non-numbered but limited to just 25 copies. It isn’t autographed, but it’s definitely one of the highlights of the Father’s Day promotion and is a pretty sweet looking card. I featured it on our post about Panini Father’s Day 2012.
Make sure you head to your local card shop this weekend to see if they are part of Panini’s promotion and get your chance to pull some of these beauties.
Mary Riley of Benchwarmer says Happy Father’s Day in this card. It is from 2009 but forget about that, it’s Mary Riley.
This Father’s Day surely is a great one for all you fathers out there. For one, if you’re reading this post, you get to see the beautiful Mary Riley in a Father’s Day commemorative card.
Secondly, there will be a ton of great inter-league baseball for all you dads to watch this afternoon into the evening hours.
Third, if you aren’t into baseball you’re surely into golf. You can watch the final round of the US Open and see if Rory McIlroy can hold his lead at this major tournament this time around.
Finally, when the sun goes down it will only get hotter when the 2011 Miss USA Pagaent will be live on NBC.
What a great Father’s Day lineup for dad to sit home and enjoy the best things the world has to offer for men. Sports and women. While you’re at it, make it even better and crack open a couple cold ones.*
*If you’re of legal age: 21 in the US and 18 everywhere else that has their heads on straight. Otherwise, have yourself an O’Douls or root beer.
While I am not a father as of right now, I will be enjoying all of these things as the fiancee will be working.
And remember to support prostate cancer awareness on this day. If they find a preventative cure, you will no longer need those special appointments where you are afraid to look at your doctor afterwards.
