2000 Brian Urlacher Rookie Card Checklist

By

When you suit up at middle linebacker for the Chicago Bears, you join a tradition that includes Hall of Fame names like Dick Butkus and Mike Singletary. Those are tough shoes to fill, but Brian Urlacher has been doing his best to continue the legacy ever since he arrived in the Windy City out of New Mexico.

Though his game is based more on speed and athleticism than brute strength, Urlacher has put together a resume that just might land him next to his predecessors in Canton. A six-time Pro Bowl selection, he's averaged nearly eight tackles a game over his career and became just the second Bear ever to be named Associated Press Defensive Player-of-the-Year when he took home the honor in 2005.

His value goes beyond his personal numbers, as he's proven to be the cornerstone of two Chicago defenses to allow the fewest points in their respective seasons. He also has a flair for the dramatic, a trait that was on display in Week Six of the 2006 season. Urlacher's late strip of Edgerrin James led to one of two defensive touchdowns that sparked a dramatic 24-23 comeback victory over the Arizona Cardinals.

Already one of the most widely collected defensive players in the NFL, Urlacher is lacking just one thing to take him to the next level: a Super Bowl ring. A starring role in a Bears championship would pretty much ensure Urlacher's cards would reach a level none of his defensive contemporaries could touch.

Defenders don't get featured in every football card set, but Urlacher had a high profile entering the league in 2000 and managed to end up with 47 different rookie cards. His SPx autographed jersey rookie is one of his best, and with a print run of 2000 isn't too hard for collectors to track down.
