Vincent Jackson Rookie Card One To Watch

Posted on 18 March 2010


When it comes to impact players it is hard to get by Vincent Jackson of the San Diego Chargers.  Seemingly every week he is scoring touchdowns and making huge plays for their football team and hurting the chance of the teams he is playing.  More impressive than that, however, is the different ways he is capable of scoring.  From a long bomb to a short slant in the redzone, Jackson is a threat is many ways.  These disparate skills are not often combined in one player.  For this reason, Vincent Jackson rookie cards are an important addition to any serious football card collectors collection.

Coming from a relatively small college, Vincent Jackson has not had his path to greatness adorned with roses.  He has had to fight through competition and prejudiced eyes due to his draft position to rise up and produce on the field.  Even when that happened he has had to share the spotlight with some of the great offensive stars of the NFL in the like of LaDainian Tomlinson and Antonio Gates.  Even the diminutive Darren Sproles has stolen important opportunities at times from Jackson.  Given this past seasons movement, however, it has become even more evident which direction the Chargers are headed.  Tomlinson has moved on to the New York Jets.  Sproles is rumored to be on the way out also and Antonio Gates has been battling injuries the past few years.  Given the move of the Chargers offense to a pass heavy offense under the leadership of Phillip Rivers it is no wonder that someone emerged.  However, given the inauspicious beginning of Jackson it was not always evident it was going to be him.

However, here he is producing at an impressive clip.  Being among the leaders in receiving yards and touchdowns this past season put him up even another rung on the NFL ladder.  Given his relative youth to the other monsters of the position it is not unheard of to think that his best years are still ahead of him and that he could truly put up some monster numbers.  When searching for rookie cards to own, these are the types of seasons we want to see.
