The Atlanta Falcons aren’t one of the teams you think of when it comes to card collecting because, in recent years, they just haven’t been able to get the right young guy with all the hype around him.
In 2021, that will change for Atlanta Falcons.
The Atlanta Falcons chose Florida tight end, Kyle Pitts, in this year’s draft. Pitts has found himself in the perfect storm with the Atlanta Falcons playing alongside one of the best quarterbacks in this generation in Matt Ryan and playing number two to Calvin Ridley.
While Pitts isn’t the quarterback that most card collectors spend tons of money on trying to obtain, his Atlanta Falcons rookie card will be one of the most touted in football.
The card collecting scene went through an astronomical boom when COVID came around.
They want and need certain players to drive up the price of the once-affordable hobby. In the NFL, quarterbacks ran the scene since quarterback is probably the most important position in sports. What makes a Kyle Pitts card so desirable?
The hype around this young man is real.
Hype and accomplishments are what drives up the demand for a player. That’s the reason why a Matt Ryan Atlanta Falcons rookie card will never be worth as much as a Patrick Mahomes or Aaron Rodgers rookie card. Both of those guys have the hype around them that makes them desirable for collectors.
Pitts hasn’t accomplished much besides being a top-five pick in the draft, so what’s the hype around Kyle Pitts and why should his card be in your collection?
In a draft class consisting of Trevor Lawrence, Justin Fields, Zach Wilson, Jamarr Chase, and Devonta Smith, quite a few people have stated that Pitts is either the best or second-best prospect to come out this year.
Some people have even gone as far as to say that Pitts is a generational talent. Those kinds of words are music to a card collector’s ears especially if you’re an avid Atlanta Falcons card collector.
A lot of card collectors have put an astronomical value on numbered cards, different color variations of a card, and RPA’s (rookie, jersey patch, auto) as well.
You don’t always have to get spend crazy amounts of money to get a good card.
Find a good base Kyle Pitts card, keep it in good condition, or better yet, go get the card graded. When Kyle Pitts starts to show out for the Atlanta Falcons, you’re going to be glad you have a Kyle Pitts card in your collection.
