Selected first overall in the 2020 NFL Draft, Joe Burrow has high expectations to lead the Cincinnati Bengals – and he certainly has, which is already reflected in the value of Joe Burrow rookie cards.
Even before the start of the 2020 NFL season, Burrow is the favorite to win offensive rookie of the year award.
And there are already a few of his prospect / rookie cards available to collect. Here’s the three we like best (which is sure to be updated as more official releases come from future hobby sets).
1. 2020 Panini Prizm Rookie Cards
One of his more popular rookie cards and it might be argued it’s the top Joe Burrow rookie card, is from Panini Prizm. It consists of many parallels of his rookie card.
There are some that come with autographs too.
2. 2020 Panini Select Field Level Rookie Card
If you’re looking for a high-end, low population rookie card, the Panini Select Field Level set is for you.
The more rare parallels will see you dish out several thousand dollars to add one to your personal collection.
3. 2020 Panini Flawless Rookie Patch Autograph Card
Here’s one of the super high-end cards to collect if budget is not an issue.
There are a couple of image variations, but each card has an autograph plus a sick patch.
BONUS: 2020 Panini Select Autograph Rookie Patch Card
Here’s a more recent release from the Panini Select set.
This one is for those looking to have both a relic patch and an autograph.
Some of the lower numbered cards are already going for thousands.
MORE INFO ON JOE BURROW: Joe Burrow started his college playing career at Ohio State University. But after spending two years at Ohio State with limited playing time, he decided to transfer to Louisiana State University (LSU) in 2018.
At LSU, Burrow established himself as one of the best quarterbacks in college football, leading LSU to an impressive 10-3 record in his first season. He was named the SEC Offensive Player of the Year.
But in his senior year, Burrow led the Tigers to an undefeated national championship season and won the prestigious Heisman Trophy as the best player in college football.
He broke numerous records during the season, including the all-time single-season passing touchdown record with 60.
Burrow then declared for the 2020 NFL Draft and was selected first overall by the Cincinnati Bengals. In his first season, his success on the field continued and set several rookie records, including the most touchdown passes by a rookie in a single season. He was also named the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year.
In just his second season coming back from an injury, Joe led the Bengals to their first playoff appearance in more than three years.

I have a pink wave /10 Metal Leaf Armed & Dangerous Joe Burrow if you are interested in purchasing it. Same card you have listed for $999.95 I would sell to you for $500.
Got a Obsidian Red /10 PSA 10 I feel pretty good about. I’ve always been a huge fan of Obsidian Base RCs + Parallels, as well as their Color blast (Just as high quality as the Prizm Color Blast, noticeably cheaper, and it looks better imo. I’m not in a rush to sell necessarily, however I would like to stock up on either a 2005 Topps Chrome Rodgers PSA 10, or a Topps Chrome Rodgers Refractor (I’d like to nab a BGS 9.5, but might have to settle for a PSA 9). Base TC PSA 10s are going for ~$3k, PSA 9 TC Refractors in the high ~$2.7k-$2.8k range, and BGS 9.5 Refractors in the low $4ks.
Leaning towards a clean PSA 10 Topps Chrome over the PSA 9 Topps Chrome Refractor. But if I can swing a BGS 9.5 Refractor, I think I’ll go that route.
I got an SP Authentic Signs of the Times Rodgers Rookie Auto Gold /25. But I’ve been terrified to send it in for grading lol. I could see it landing anywhere between an 8 and a 9.5 depending on how warm and fuzzy the grader is feeling that day. And the difference between those grades is well into the 5 figures.So part of my just wants to sell it, along with my BGS 9 and BGS 9.5 Topps Chrome Rodgers and use all of the funds to upgrade while prices are astonishingly low.
I mean, there aren’t any good comps against Brees atm, as his expensive sales are all Topps Chrome Black Refractors. Looking at live listings
– HGA 9.5 Topps Chrome Refractor is listed at $13k (BGS 9.5 Topps Chrome Refractor Rodgers can be had for a third of that)
– BGS 9 Topps Chrome Refractor is listed at $10k (Can grab a BGS 9 Topps Chrome Refractor Rodgers can be had for ~$2.5-$3.k. So around 25% of listed price).
It goes on from there, but you get the point. Why is Brees 3-4x comparable Rodgers cards? He wasn’t as popular. He wasn’t as good. He has nowhere near the career accolades. Is it just because he hung up the cleats? If so, do we expect that to happen when Rodgers hangs em’ up (In 8-9 years after 3 move MVPs and 3-4 more Superbowl wins + SMVP’s obviously).
