Want even more proof that autograph hunters and sports memorabilia collectors will buy anything labeled “one-of-a-kind” and adorned with a star’s signature?  This terrible piece of artwork turned one-of-a-kind Panini Rookie Sketch Card—hand drawn and autographed by none other than Colts rookie QB Andrew Luck—went for $1,500 in a recent eBay auction (the listing says $2,499, but Darren Rovell and the Internet says $1,500).

Here’s the description of the item, culled directly from the eBay listing…

Here it is ! The card featured on the Panini Blog, on tons of National Advertisements, and talked about on tons of sports blogs/websites ! The actual 1 of 1 of Andrew Luck – Panini Rookie Sketch card – Luck HIMSELF drew this sketch of Lucas Oil Stadium, created this 1 of a kind piece of art on the front, autographed the back with ” Andrew Luck #12 ” certified with the Panini Autograph Red Sticker on the back, plus encapulated by BGS/ Beckett Grading Services ! This is the best card Luck will ever have, its the most personal and widely talked about Luck card out there. !

The drawing says a lot about Luck’s skill as an artist—mainly that he’s not one.  No one would be able to tell whether that was Lucas Oil Field or a poorly drawn YMCA if Luck hadn’t labeled it as Indianapolis’ home field.  The only thing missing from the Indy QB’s sketch was a sun with a happy face, shining down on the  stadium.  Still, it is a unique and wholly original item, with Luck’s autograph on the backside, and if some person deemed it worth $1,500 or $2,500, then who are we to argue?

And hey, I’m pretty sure the Colts are paying Andrew Luck to be the next Peyton Manning, not the next Bob Ross.
