Colin Kaepernick Autographed Memorabilia
He’s Not Montana or Young But Colin Kaepernick Might Be The Next Best Thing
The San Francisco 49ers have a rich history at the quarterback position. Any young man that steps under center knows that they are following in the footsteps of greats like Y.A. Tittle, Joe Montana and Steve Young. That type of pressure can unnerve most people but it doesn’t seem to faze Colin Kaepernick. He has come in and given 49ers fans hope that another Super Bowl title could be close at hand. It doesn’t matter if you are a fan or a collector, you can realize that the value of Colin Kaepernick Autographed Memorabilia is about to go up. Everything from Colin Kaepernick Autographed Footballs to Colin Kaepernick Autographed Jerseys and everything else bearing his signature will be worth more tomorrow than it is today.
Colin Kaepernick is not the prototypical quarterback that we have become accustomed to seeing. He originally was a star baseball pitcher. Coming out of high school, many felt that Kaepernick would be a top pitching prospect. Almost every college that offered him a scholarship did so for his baseball talent. But Nevada Wolf Pack head coach Chris Ault saw something in the tall, gangly kid with the big arm. Ault decided that the upside potential of Kaepernick was worth a scholarship offer. And since Kaepernick’s heart was with football, he took them up on their offer. Ault would not have to question his decision.
At Nevada, Kaepernick put the big arm and long legs to use. As a sophomore, he threw for over 2,000 yards and rushed for another 1,000 yards in one season. Those were numbers that had only been seen in college football 4 other times. Throughout his college career he continued to astound fans and football observers alike with his strong are and quick feet. His numbers were staggering even for a college quarterback. In his collegiate career, he threw for over 10,000 yards and rushed for over 4,000 yards. No other quarterback in Division 1 had ever done that.
Those numbers caused the San Francisco 49ers to trade up in the 2011 NFL Draft to select him. Even though Alex Smith was supposedly the 49ers’ quarterback of the future, the team saw the promise that Kaepernick had. After Smith got hurt, Kaepernick got his chance. The kid that had promised himself that one day he would play for the Niners was going to get the shot of a lifetime. And he took full advantage of it. Kaepernick simultaneously thrilled fans while he frustrated opposing defenses. And now he is on the cusp of a chance at a Super Bowl title and greatness.
Collectors value the memorabilia of the San Francisco 49ers more than most teams. Few teams have had legends like Joe Montana and Jerry Rice wear their jersey. If Colin Kaepernick continues to play the way that he has, any Colin Kaepernick Autographed Memorabilia will be valuable. Currently there are few Colin Kaepernick Autographed Jerseys and Colin Kaepernick Autographed Footballs available. As Kaepernick becomes more of a star, there will be more items that will come on to the market. But any responsible collector won’t wait until then. They will get everything that they can that bears Colin Kaepernick’s signature now.
