Jimmy Garoppolo, quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers, always had the top QB prospect pedigree but he’s really come into his own this 2019 NFL season.
Unsurprisingly then, Garoppolo’s rookie card values have also taken off after a brief downturn when he tore his ACL in 2018.
But he’s rebounded nicely leading the 49ers to an incredible start to the 2019 season (just think that he was once considered the back-up to Tom Brady.)
Here’s our pick for his three best rookie cards currently available on the market and links to where to buy them on eBay.
1. 2014 Immaculate Collection Rookie Patch Autograph Card /99
One of the more sought after high-end rookie cards that come with a patch relic comes from the 2014 Immaculate Collection set.
Fortunately there’s one for Garoppolo and the card is numbered to just 99.
2. 2014 National Treasures Rookie Patch Autograph Card
For those looking for an even higher-end rookie card than the ones found in the aforementioned Immaculate Collection set, should check out the 2014 National Treasures set.
While there are a few image variations, they all feature a great relic patch and some of the parallel versions are quite limited.
You can be spending up to five digits on these cards for some of them.
3. 2014 Panini Prizm Autograph Rookie Card
The Panini Prizm is another, more affordable, popular brand for football rookie card collectors.
And there’s an autograph card with several parallel versions to collect belonging to Garoppolo.
