Jimmy Clausen 2010 Exquisite Collection #106 Rookie Silver Holofoil /10

Jimmy Clausen was a part of my 2010. I can remember when some of the products came out that year, he was one of the three big rookies. It was an excellent time to collect and I had fun promoting these guys when new products were launched at the card shop I was then managing. The fond memories are rich.

It would be another three years before I’d buy a Jimmy Clausen card and when I did, he was all of a memory to collectors. That said, my first card was a monster that had been tamed. Since then, I’ve acquired other cards I just plain like. The depicted card, if pulled in 2010, would’ve been one of Jimmy Clausen’s biggest cards. In the current state, it still remains a big card but that doesn’t mean it’s valuable.

This is something to keep in mind when collecting: Card significance doesn’t always mean high value. Printing plates of utility players are the perfect example. Their existence is significance in that they’re all 1/1s and were made so that the associated cards could be printed. Same deal with cards of players who’s professional careers were relatively unproductive, short, and in the distant past. For collectors like myself, I actually really like cards like this because it allows me to enjoy quality without dealing with severe competition from prospectors.

This Jimmy Clausen 2010 Exquisite Collection Rookie Silver Holofoil /10 is such a beautiful specimen. I really like the color combination, holofoil, silver ink autograph, and player photo. It’s just a really appealing card. Upper Deck did such a great job with Exquisite and I’m excited to have this card in the collection.
