According to another report by the outlet:

The story behind the card is great … the owner tells us he started buying up CK items in 2016 when collectors thought Colin’s kneeling protest would cause his collectibility value to plummet.

And if a person is interested in more Kaepernick memorabilia, the former NFL QB‘s game-worn and signed gloves are also going up for auction.
