    Panini Investigates the Rising Cost of Colin Kaepernick

    http://paniniamerica.wordpress.com/2...gallery-video/





    It seemed nothing short of poetic when the San Francisco 49ers traded up in the 2011 NFL Draft to nab Colin Kapernick, the profusely athletic hometown hero from the University of Nevada by way of California’s Pitman High School. But the buzz largely subsided when Kaepernick spent most of his rookie season backing up Alex Smith and watching as the 49ers made it all the way to the NFC Championship Game.

    2012 started out much the same way, with the potential-packed Kaepernick clutching a clipboard as the Niners bolted to a 6-2 start. But everything changed during San Francisco’s Week 10 game against the St. Louis Rams, when Kaepernick relieved an injured Smith in a game that eventually ended in a 24-24 tie. Three weeks later, the only thing Kaepernick is clutching now is the 49ers’ starting quarterback job.

    In just more than 10 quarters as a starter, Kaepernick has completed 43-of-65 passes (66.2 percent) for 591 yards and three touchdowns. He’s also rushed for 105 yards and two more touchdowns during that time. As a result, the Niners are perched near the top of the NFC with an 8-2-1 record — and Kaepernick’s best Panini America Rookie Cards are absolutely on fire.

    Generating the kind of frenzied secondary-market activity historically reserved for San Francisco signal-callers such as Joe Montana and Steve Young, Kaepernick’s top cards are currently selling for as much as three times their most recent listed values on Beckett.com.

    Kaepernicksanity? Sure.

    It is great to see a guy thriving when the opportunity presents itself, but all it will take is 1 bad game and he will be holding the clipboard again.

    As a 49ers fan, I hope he doesn't have a bad game -- bad enough to lose, anyways.

    As a guy that bought an Alex Smith jersey the day before the concussion.... LOL
