1973 Topps #251

Featured Card: 1973 Topps #251. As a Heisman Trophy winner and a second-round draft choice, there is little wonder that Pat Sullivan had a rookie card so early in his career. Unfortunately, his days in the NFL were few and relatively forgettable, and his rookie card value shows that. Of current eBay listings, the highest is just $2, with free shipping. This would definitely be a good pickup to add to or start a Heisman winners rookie card collection. Just don’t expect it to add much retail value to that collection.
