Will Aaron Rodgers be considered to be one of the best all-time QBs or does he need to win another Super Bowl? Wherever you stand on this debate, Aaron Rodgers rookie cards will continue to hold value as his career stats speak for themselves.
Even if you think Rodgers is too far removed in the rankings in relation to where Tom Brady sits, in the hobby, he’s definitely considered a top-tier QB with his rookie card value commanding a premium.

MORE INFO ON AARON RODGERS: With his precision passes and his ability to scramble out of the pocket, Aaron Rodgers has become one of the most successful quarterbacks in the league.
Synonymous with the Green Bay Packers (we’ll see if he moves teams in 2023!), Rodgers was selected by the Green Bay Packers in the first round of the 2005 NFL Draft, where he would begin his professional career.
People might remember that Rodgers spent his first three years in the NFL as a backup to Brett Favre. It was not until 2008 that Rodgers finally got his chance to shine. Although in his first year as a starter, Rodgers led the Packers to a 6-10 record, Rodgers continued to improve and established himself as one of the best QBs in the league.
He led the Packers to the playoffs in each of the next eight seasons, including a Super Bowl victory in 2011. In that finals game, Rodgers threw for 304 yards and three touchdowns, earning the game’s MVP award and cementing his place in NFL history
Other accolades include being named to nine Pro Bowls and also being awarded the league’s MVP three times, in 2011, 2014, and 2020.
