Looks like the Buffalo Bills found the quarterback of their future with Josh Allen and for football collectors, Josh Allen rookie cards will be highly sought after.
It’s certainly been a great start for Allen and the Bills in 2020 and it’s continued for 2021 and 2022 although the end results were less than satisfying.
But no doubt, Allen with all his potential will still be the one to watch for Bills fans and hobbyists alike. Here are three Josh Allen rookie cards currently listed for sale online that we like best.
- 2018 National Treasures Rookie Patch Autograph Card
This is a Josh Allen football card that any Bills fan and collector would be lucky to have.
It’s from a marquis set that has an on-card autograph along with a sizeable patch.
The value is already in the thousands depending on the condition and rarity of the parallel.
2. 2018 Donruss Optic Football Rated Rookie Autograph Card
Another popular set for football rookie card collectors is found in the Donruss Optic hobby boxes.
It usually features a nice clean look with the Rated Rookie branding. There are also parallel cards to chase with lower print runs.
3. 2018 Panini Contenders Rookie Ticket Autograph Card
For those who like a more consistent look in their autograph Josh Allen rookie cards, the Contenders Rookie Ticket is worth a look.
There are a couple of image variations to collect as well and both are currently listed in the low to mid thousands.
BONUS: 2018 Panini Prizm Silver Rookie Card #205
For some reason, the print run for the 2018 Panini Prizm Silver football set wasn’t as high as in the following years.
So finding a high grade Josh Allen silver prizm rookie card is fairly rare hence the greater values. Here are some of the ones listed below.
MORE INFO ON JOSH ALLEN: Since entering the league in 2018, Allen has shown off his arm strength, athleticism (especially in his running abilities), and clutch performances.
When the 2018 NFL Draft took place, Allen was one of the top quarterback prospects in the class and was eventually selected seventh overall by the Buffalo Bills.
In his rookie season, it took a bit of time for Allen to adjust to the speed and physicality of the NFL game. While he showed flashes of brilliance, Allen also struggled with consistency and accuracy.
But after working on his game, he had his breakthrough season in 2019, in which the Bills QB led the team to a 10-6 record and a playoff appearance.
He set numerous franchise records, including the most passing touchdowns in a season (20) and the most rushing yards by a quarterback (510). Allen was also selected to play in the Pro Bowl.
Allen then led the Bills to a 13-3 record and the AFC Championship Game in 2020, and was named the AFC Offensive Player of the Month in November of that same year.
In addition to his arm strength, Josh Allen is also an exceptional runner, using his size and speed to pick up crucial yards when the pocket collapses.
This should help retain the value of Josh Allen cards in the foreseeable future.
