A couple of new additions to my University of Arizona personal collection, a duo of Nick Foles autographs. I am not a fan of the Eagles, I was born in New York and my dad is a Giants fan (though I am not a Giants fan) so it is kind of inherent to dislike the Eagles.
First up is this on-card Courage autograph from 2012 Topps Valor Football. I really like the Valor Football cards, they are on a solid card stock with a high-end look to them with on-card autographs. I picked up the redemption for this card in September. It only took three weeks to get this card from Topps, talk about a surprise.
The second card I bought last week and is from Upper Deck’s 2012 Fleer Retro Football, it is based on the 1999-00 Skybox Basketball Autographcs insert. I prefer his Upper Deck and Leaf cards because they depict him in his Arizona uniform.
It cost me $8.75 for both of these cards, around $11 with shipping. I just checked out some auctions, the same cards are now selling between $8-12 (lowest bids) with time left on the auctions. Hopefully his prices will drop back from the atmosphere, I am hoping that the price jump was from the wagon jumpers looking to make a quick buck after an amazing game only.
