ESPN announced today that it has signed Michelle Beadle to a new multi-year deal to keep her on the airwaves with SportsNation and a new national radio show.
Beadle is one of a small number of ESPN personalities who are non-athetes to appear on certified autographs as she’s appeared on cards from Panini America and Topps in recent years.
Her first cards came from Panini America in its 2011-12 Pinnacle Fans of the Game hockey insert set as well as its 2011 Americana non-sports release. Her most-recent cards were in the 2015 Topps Allen & Ginter baseball set, which featured a few ESPN personalities when its 10th edition arrived last year. She has autographs and memorabilia cards in the Americana and Ginter releases.
Her Ginter autographs are pretty consistent sellers around $25, while her signed cards in active auctions have a bit higher asking prices.
All this got Buzz wondering … are there any sports-related TV stars out there who haven’t yet had a certified autograph that fans should want? Tell us on Twitter or in a comment.
