When I spent some time in Nebraska this summer for the College World Series, the topic of conversation would usually steer toward football, and specifically the Nebraska Cornhuskers. The people in Omaha loved Ndamkong Suh and they are eagerly anticipating his NFL debut with the Detroit Lions.
Suh payed homage to his former college on his 2010 Topps Sketch card by inscribing "Huskers 93" on the front. The card is serial numbered 1/1 and has an autograph on the back. These cards were obtained by Topps at the 2010 NFL Rookie Premiere Photo Shoot, and inserted into packs of 2010 Topps Football. Earlier this month a Tim Tebow Sketch card sold for $752.37. Before I took my trip to Nebraska I was surprised to see how high Ndamkong Suh's rookie cards were selling for, specifically the 2010 Press Pass Autographs were selling for as high as $70 when the set was first released. My guess is that many of Suh's rookie cards end up in the state of Nebraska because no matter what type of career he has in the NFL he will always have a huge fan base from that area.
