The prices of sports cards can wildly fluctuate for young emerging star quarterbacks on a week-by-week basis. A few good weeks is all it takes sometimes for collectors to decide "this guy could be the next Joe Montana" and shoot the value of his cards to the moon. A few poor weeks is all it takes at times to cause a huge correction in their value.
In the last few years, fans of the Jets, Giants, and Eagles were bubbling with excitement over their young signal-callers. Each of them showed enough potential early in their careers to have fans dreaming of locking them in as their franchise quarterback for the next 10-15 years. The market reacted, and prices went up according to what these players could be, rather than what they had already become.
After slow starts to the 2020 season, we have seen Sam Darnold, Daniel Jones, and Carson Wentz's card markets crash. The Eagles spent a 2020 2nd round pick on Jalen Hurts, and his presence will loom large if the Eagles don't improve on their sub .500 record. Sam Darnold has regressed for his 0-9 Jets, to the point that fans are now openly rooting for the team to lose games and secure his replacement (Trevor Lawrence). Although he was just selected in 2019, Daniel Jones continues to be a turnover machine, and fans of Big Blue are beginning to get impatient with his development.
With values currently so low, you might be asking yourself if any of the three are salvageable and if now might be a good time to buy, so let's take a deep dive into each player.
