About Peyton Manning
Wyatt wrote a bit about Peyton here – but to recap, he’s one of the greatest quarterbacks in history — arguably as high as #3 of all-time, but certainly in the top 10, though he has been eclipsed by his longtime rival Tom Brady, who has won several Super Bowls since Peyton hung up the spikes to become an ubiquitous TV pitchman. He retired with major career records that have also been passed by Brady and Drew Brees, but he does still hold some single-season passing records (that will be broken with the new 17 game schedule) and won 5 MVP awards and 2 Super Bowls. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame this year, and his profile still remains high thanks to the Nationwide/Papa John’s/Gatorade/etc ads.
It’s actually a little bit surprising that this is only the second fractional offering of his so far.
In 2003-04, Peyton had an excellent year, winning the MVP but losing in the AFC Championship game to the Patriots.
Sports Memorabilia posted a -15% ROI in Q2 2021.
Recent Sales and Current Valuation
This is the type of asset that could attract a buyout offer – we’ve seen it with other 1/1 memorabilia items that originally sold for far less in recent auctions. Collectable has proven strong at sourcing buyouts.
