Ahmad Rashad sells for $271

In 1991 Portraits, 1992 Portraits on August 19, 2012 at 10:40 pm


Jeremy Nierenberg, a card dealer in Tamarac, Fla., recently bought a lot of Pro Line cards from a collector. He is selling them individually on eBay, and he recently appears to have sold a Frank Gifford card for $299.

The collection had some rare cards in it, and one was this Ahmad Rashad card. Nierenberg’s buy-it-now price was $499.99, but he also was accepting best offers on the card. Apparently the high offer was $271.

Some other highlights were Reggie Langhorne selling for $271.50, Alonzo Highsmith for $177.51, Mark Carrier of the Bears for $128.04, Greg Townsend for $143.51, Albert Lewis for $95.

Oddly, the 1991 Roger Staubach Portraits card went for $120, which is a little high, IMHO.

His most recent set of auctions range from Ronnie Lott or Phil Simms starting at about $20 to John Elway at about $80 and Santa Claus at a C-note.

And if you’re looking for more prices that more Pro Line cards from 1991, 1992 or 1993 sold for, check out my Market Data section here. It’s not a price guide. It’s a list of sale prices that I am aware of. Some might be tremendous bargains. I recently bought a 1992 Thurman Thomas Profiles card for less than $5. That’s a great deal. Other prices might be gross overpayments. Maybe that Staubach that i mentioned a few paragraphs ago was too much. But, as I enter more results, a clearer picture will emerge of approximately how much other people are paying for the exact same card. And through that collection of data, perhaps readers will be able to gauge a fair range of prices for any particular card when buying or selling.

  1. I’m a fan of your site. I collect the bazaar auto’s…I.e different color ink cards and I have roughly half of the Rypien’s.

  2. I think your site is a bit out of date, I have been collecting the 1991 and 1992 Pro Line autographs since they came out. I paid about $300 on eBay for Greg Townsend and a few of others. I am only a few cards short on completing the 91 and 92 autograph sets. Last year i was outbid on the Phylicia Rashad autograph card on eBay and it went for more than $800. Sad thing is I have the Rashad Family autograh card with her and hubby’s auto on it and paid way less that half of what her card went for.

    • if you can give me any information to help make the site more up today and more complete, i’d love to hear it! keep up the good work. i’m working on completing my set, too. sometimes you find good deals; sometimes you don’t. unfortunately, i’ve left a lot of the difficult cards to the end. so i expect to pay more than i would have if i’d bought 10, 15, 20 years ago. but that’s the way it goes. i have a great start, and i’m getting to the point where i could consider myself “close” to the end.
