Possible Paterno Relics Coming Soon?

Most likely not.  Thats why two Penn State graduates paid $9,000.00 for an autographed pair of Joe Paterno’s glasses.  Last month Paterno had eye surgery and he no longer needs those thick Coke bottle like glasses to see.  You can read the whole story over on ESPN.

Joe Paterno doesn’t have a lot of cards for collectors to add to their collection.  The cards he does have will hit your wallet hard because they are so rare and valuable.  Last year Razor and Panini created a few cut signatures that sold well into the high hundreds.  And if your looking to add an authentic 1950 Topps Felt Backs Paterno RC to your collection you better get ready to spend some big bucks.  I think it would have been great if Press Pass, Upper Deck, Panini, or Topps would have purchased this pair of glasses to insert into a set.  It wouldn’t be the first time a pair of glasses found their way into a pack.  A few years ago Topps included the eyeglass frame once used by Woodrow Wilson into a pack of Triple Threads.

  1. I think I’d rather see the pair of glasses wind up in the collection of someone who will appreciate them. Why destroy an interesting item to make some (probably ugly) relic cards?

  2. I just can’t believe it someone would pay $9000.00 for them. That’s crazy.
