Larry Fitzgerald is helping to bring something to the Arizona Cardinals that they haven't had for most of their existence: star power. Despite the tough market in the desert, collectors are hip to the fact that the Pitt product is one of the most gifted receivers in the NFL.

Fitzgerald played just 26 college games, but that was more than a sufficient sample size to show off his talent. He broke an NCAA record by scoring receiving touchdowns in 18 straight games and very nearly won the Heisman Trophy in 2003.

Recognizing that Fitzgerald combined size, speed and great hands, the Cardinals drafted him third overall in 2004. Starting from day one, he managed 780 yards and eight touchdowns during his rookie season.

Since then, he's proven that as long as he's healthy, he's virtually unstoppable. Between 2005 and 2008, Fitzgerald cracked 1,400 receiving yards and 10 receiving touchdowns three times each. He also scored the first touchdown in Arizona's Wild Card victory over Atlanta in the 2008 Playoffs, helping break a decades-long drought for the franchise.

With fellow Pro Bowler Anquan Boldin on the opposite side, Fitzgerald should enjoy optimal conditions to continue carving up defenses for years. He's got an even 50 rookie cards to collect, the rarest of which is his Playoff Contenders # 151, an autographed card with only 50 copies in existence.
