Autograph Of The Week:Eli Manning Rookie Auto!!

It's that time again, time to show off my latest autograph addition and this one was a big one for me.

Since the beginning of Eli Mannings career, I have been wanting to add an Eli Manning autograph. But, prices were way too high and I could never find one for trade anywhere.

Well, finally one popped up at a reasonable price and with some magic, I was able to snag it.

To my surprise, the card also came along with some bonuses.
First was this Tom Brady Masterpieces. Boy, did Upper Deck do good for football. Wished we could see that again.

then came the big surprise, however, it was damaged. A 1998 Bowman Peyton Manning rookie that apparently stuck in the pack to another card.

And then came the card I wanted, a 2004 Sage Hit graded gold Eli Manning auto /100. I know it's Sage Hit and all, but it's still my very first rookie autograph of Eli after 16 years of wanting one.

I need to update numbers to see where my Eli Manning autograph is at, I believe 7 or 8, but getting closer to my goal of 10! I would like to add a real rookie autograph at some point down the road but am happy with this one for now.

Well that ties up another week and another autograph shown off.

  1. UD Masterpieces was a great product line. I'm glad I returned to the hobby right around the time it was being released. I busted a case of their football after DA, Blowout, or Steel City were closing out their product and did really well.

    1. Excellent auto! I don’t typically like those type products, but if I can find affordable PC autos I definitely pick them up.

  3. So, is a Sage rookie autograph not considered to be a real rookie autograph then?

    1. Yes but no. It's not a mainstream product and the autograph was not found within the product. I dont' put any of the rookie terms on any of Sage or Press Pass products

  4. Sage Hit or not...that is a sweet rookie autograph. I find it nice that some of the less popular brands can be had for a much cheaper price. An autograph is still an autograph in my eyes.

    McCutchen Just Minors autos can be had for under $20. A Topps or Upper Deck auto from his rookie year starts at $50.
