First Cam Newton won Ohio State its third Heisman Trophy.
Now, according to the stats listed on the back of some sort of limited edition football card from Topps, The Blessed Individual never left Florida.
It’s like the universe has absorbed more Cam envy than it can handle and is trying to relieve the pressure with pop-culture gaffes… a valuable gaffe, in this case.
The Cam Newton Red Zone Rookie Autographs card, unsealed yesterday on YouTube, instantly went for $499 on eBay (with a little help from some other cards—including this nifty, vintage-esque mini-card). But according to the video’s commentary (“Aww, bam! Look at Card Jesus again… CAM NEWTON MOJO IN YOUR FACE!!!”) the Red Zone, No. 25 out of only 100, was the money card, and even more so due to the misprint.
We’re still partial to the Cam card released on Rapture Saturday.

Lists Cam Newton As Having (Only) Played For Florida? Well…not really. Look up at the top of the back of the card. See where it says college? See where it lists Auburn?
The stats thing down below is obviously either a careless misprint, or a purposeful misprint designed to make the card an immediately valuable collectible (which in turn is good for Topps as it means that people will be rushing out to buy multiple packs of cards trying to get one of these.)
The Cam Newton rookie card will be included in the Hater’s Kit.

I just pulled this card #97/100 out of a jumbo pack I purchased from Hall of Fame Cards & Collectibles in Potomac MD. WOOO HOOO!! Now I’m trying to figure out what I should do with it.
-Get it graded
