Green Bay Packers running back Ryan Grant went down with an ankle injury during week one which opens the door for Brandon Jackson to get increased work on the football field and collectors would be well advised to search their stacks for any of his 2007 rookie cards.
Jackson is a former star at the University of Nebraska and was a 2nd round pick by the Packers in the 2007 NFL Draft. He's played off and on since his rookie season in '07 but has mostly served as a backup to Grant. This might be a great time to sell high on Jackson because the shelf life of NFL running backs is typically short and sweet. The Packers are a high profile team and fans of the team spend big bucks on cards as evident earlier this month when an Aaron Rodgers 2005 Bowman Chrome Superfractor Autograph 1/1 sold for $2,570.00. I am not convinced Jackson will be as productive as Grant was and that's why I would look to move any Brandon Jackson cards a.s.a.p. It's too bad Dimitri Nance, a RB the Packers just signed off the Atlanta Falcons practice squad, does not have any rookie cards because he might be a guy who ends up getting some carries if/when Jackson wears down.
Rookie cards of Brandon Jackson have began to heat up on eBay and one of the most popular RC's for sale is his 2007 Upper Deck Exquisite Autograph /99. If Jackson runs well the next couple weeks look for prices to continue to rise. Take advantage of this upswing and sell any Jackson cards in your collection and put a few dollars in your pocket.
