Beckett Sports Card Hot / Cold – January 21, 2023

Share This Post

Welcome to Beckett Sports Card Hot/Cold where we take a quick look and what’s hot and what’s not in the worlds of sports and sports cards. Football is getting a lot of the buzz right now as the march towards the Super Bowl is officially underway.

So far, that has meant the continued surge of the most surprising rookie in a long time, Brock Purdy. He’s entrenched at the helm of the 49ers and their run. Just a couple of months ago, they were cheap. At the moment, they’re the hottest in the hobby driven by a large San Francisco fanbase, speculators and hype. There’s also the fact that Purdy doesn’t have a lot of cards out there. As the last pick in the draft, he’s part of a group of deep cuts that typically only appear when Panini opts to go for larger checklists. That’ll likely change a little more as they’re year-end releases come out, but for now, there’s not much to choose from.

It’s amazing how quickly the conversation around athletes can change. In the first half against the Chargers last Saturday, Trevor Lawrence looked abysmal, throwing four interceptions. Down 27-0, the Jaguars’ season appeared to be over. But Lawrence and the Jaguars regrouped, culminating in a miraculous 31-30 comeback win. It was a game that will likely follow Lawrence forever and one that people will point to should his team continue to develop.
