Updated 2010 Playoff Contenders Golden Ticket Tracker: Tim Tebow, Jimmy Clausen

February 25, 2011

It’s no secret by now that the pioneering Golden Ticket redemption treasures buried randomly in packs of 2010 Playoff Contenders Football have created a frenzied collecting buzz across America since they first hit the market more than a week ago.

Every card pulled is nothing short of an industry-wide event, complete with the staggering auction prices to prove it. The Golden Ticket for Aaron Rodgers sold for more than $2,200 while cards of Peyton Manning, Roger Staubach and Mark Sanchez have each eclipsed the $1,200 barrier. 

In an effort to keep everyone up to date on this exciting cross-country gold-dig, we’ve created the following list of all known Golden Tickets that have been pulled to date, including sales information when possible. We’ll update this list periodically as more Golden Tickets surface. Most recently, we’ve confirmed the appearance of Golden Tickets featuring Tim Tebow, Jimmy Clausen and Steve Young.
