What happens when a failed baseball player becomes a Heisman Trophy candidate? In the case of New York Yankees 2002 second round pick Brandon Weeden, his cards sell for 10 times their value now than prior to his leading the 2nd rank Oklahoma State Cowboys towards a BCS National Title bid. As a pitcher, Weeden went a career 19-26, topping out for the Kansas City Royals High-A affiliate in 2006 before calling it a career. The last baseball flame-out to win the Heisman was Chris Weinke who made it to Triple-A with the Toronto Blue Jays before quarterbacking to Florida State. Take a look at some of the recent sales for Weeden cards. It will be interesting to see if they meet even higher demand as the season comes towards a close and if Weeden were to win the Heisman. Keep in mind that Bowman Chrome base autographs were selling between $1 and $3 when the college football season began.
