Cleveland Browns fans have been waiting for a long time for someone to help turn their franchise around after several dismal seasons.
And it looks like Browns fans found one in rookie quarterback sensation Baker Mayfield.
Similarly to rookie star quarterback Patrick Mahomes of the Kansas City Chiefs, Mayfield has galvanized the fanbase giving their team hope for a better future.
For football card collectors, here’s our pick for his top 3 rookie cards (click on any of the links below to purchase or take a closer at the live listing).
1. 2018 Panini Optic Autograph Card #153
This is just a nice clean card with a nice clean autograph.
The sky backdrop is also a nice touch aesthetically, giving Mayfield the appearance of a team leader ready for action.
There are also other parallel versions available for hardcore collectors.
And price wise, it doesn’t cost as much as other rookie autographs currently out on the market.
2. 2018 Panini Contenders Rookie Ticket Autograph Card
For football card collectors, the Rookie Ticket subset from the Panini Contenders boxes remain pretty popular.
There’s a couple of image variations with some rare parallels as well in this set to collect.
3. 2018 Panini Flawless Patch Autograph Card (#RPA BM and #RPA BM2)
While this doesn’t have Mayfield featured in a Browns uniform, it does have him in his college one.
And it has a nice big patch to go with his autograph card.
The price ranges significantly though depending on the patch of the card with a couple of variations of the card.
One has a patch featuring a photo of Mayfield running with the ball with the plain white relics much more affordable. But there are ones that contain part of the logo featuring Mayfield receiving the ball (some numbered to just 10 and 15) that cost generally more.
