Andrew Luck Indianapolis Colts Quarterback Retires at 29 Years Old
Posted by Tosh on Sunday, August 25, 2019 3:24 AM

With great excitement, I remember in 2012 pulling a Andrew Luck autographed and a part of his Jersey football card.  It came from a Panini Black Football Card Box.  

For those of you that don’t collect football cards, the Panini Black Football Card series was one of the most expensive and coveted cards I’ve ever purchased.  It cost $100.00 for 12 cards.  All special and autographed cards.  In that series, I also pulled a Matt Ryan Jersey Card.  Excitement like a little child is what I enjoyed as a hobby just like building model kits!

Now at 29, with a birthday coming up in September 12, Andrew Luck retires due to severe pain.  This led to a debilitating issue hence his retirement.  I’m in constant pain and with my prescription based opioid pills I try each day to fight through my pain.  I know what he’s talking about.

Andrew Luck was one of my top 5 quarterbacks.  To see him in tears at his annoucement I could also feel the pain he’s going through.  Good Luck Andrew Luck, enjoy your second chance in life!

Your Friend, Toshi

So true. I have a lot of respect for him. I wish Andrew and his young family all the best. 

Another thing that differentiated Andrew from other NFL players ... earning a degree in a hard major (architectural engineering) from a very good school (Stanford), while still devoting all that time to QB'ing their team.

Yes sir, Tojo72.  I agree with you, know one and I mean know one should have booed this outstanding individual as Andrew Luck!  They should have properly given Andrew Luck a standing ovation.  

As you said, he is an outstanding individual, and if I may add he had a heart of gold.

Here I have a rookie 1 of 1 card which to me is rare.  I don’t think there‘s a high money value yet as a collector (Hobby) I value these two cards greatly.

On the one card below is what a normal card is.  But the card below that has the back part printed up front.  When you turn the card around, it’s blank!

A side by side detailed inspection.

That‘s right!  I almost forgot that he has a degree in engineering.  He had a heart of gold, he was one of the top 5 QB’s that played the game.  Thank you TSoriano stopping by my thread, it’s greatly appreciated.

Here I have two cards with Andrew Lucks jersey and autographed cards.  These cards per Beckett magazine, (A Football Card collector‘s bible.  It allows you to see the value of the card) are both a little over $150.00 each.  

Now I will wait to see if these cards are worth anything.

It was sad to hear, but he's taken quite a beating. Last season was good, but they've yet to rebuild a really solid team. Even Jacoby Brissett took a beating when he had to step in during the 2017 season. That one season as the starting QB probably took years off of his (Jacoby's) potential career.

Yes, it was sad and with such an unexpected timing (During a Colts game) that he announced his retirement.  I was watching a game on NFL Network when it switched to Andrew Luck saying I’m mentally tired.  

Yah, I feel for Jacoby Brissett, there is not enough QB protection for him let alone Andrew Luck.  Luck was torn apart physically and mentally.  Andrew Luck literally took the Colts to 4 playoffs during his 7 years and went to the Pro Bowl every year.

Last year he made a comeback after his shoulder surgery and was awarded “Comeback Player of the Year”.  I know he missed the whole 2017 season and it must have been hard for him to watch his team play while he rehabs on the sideline.  

He “WOULD HAVE BEEN” a first rounder pick for the HOF golden jacket like my other idol “Brett Favre”!!!!!!!!!!

Being “Booed” off the field, Andrew Luck was asked about that situation and he said it hurt!  They should have given him a standing ovation.  He used his body on physical hits just to get a touchdown with a very weak team.  I know he gets an astronomical Pay Check to take the team to the Super Bowl but not when you’re getting beat up in every game.  The Colts really needed to build the team properly, then you would get better results.

Thank you sir for visiting and sharing on my thread, I’m greatly appreciated.

Thank you, Your Friend Toshi.
