Joe Burrow top rookie cards

Joe Burrow and his top 3 rookie cards

Check out our Daily Auctions page to see some of the best sports card auctions ending daily! And listen to our podcast Cards To The Moon!

Selected first overall in the 2020 NFL Draft, Joe Burrow has high expectations to lead the Cincinnati Bengals where Andy Dalton could not.

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 from arguably the most popular football set, the Panini Prizm 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.

    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.

    Thanks

    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).
