Justin Fields has quickly risen through the ranks both on the field and in the hobby with Justin Fields rookie cards rising in value.
Fields was selected by the Chicago Bears with the 11th overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, making him the franchise’s first-round quarterback selection in over 20 years.
While Fields’ rookie season in the NFL was filled with ups and downs, he showed the ability to make all the throws required of an NFL quarterback.
He also displayed his mobility, using his legs to extend plays and pick up first downs (reminiscent of Lamar Jackson?).
Fields finished his rookie season with 2,210 passing yards, 12 touchdowns, and only five interceptions, while also rushing for 358 yards and three touchdowns.
Fields’ performance in his rookie season earned him recognition and accolades, including being named the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Month for December 2021.
If you’re looking to add a Justin Fields rookie card, here are the three we like best.
1. 2021 Panini Prizm #334 Justin Fields Rookie Card
The Prizm set remains popular for football card collectors with its range of price points depending on the rarity of the parallel.
Some already go up to several thousand dollars for the lower numbered parallel cards while base cards are relatively affordable for the average collector.
2. 2021 Panini Select Field Level #350 Justin Fields Rookie Card
The Panini Select set is a nice alternative to the aforementioned Prizm set.
It usually has a lower price point, but the Field Level subset is more difficult to hit making it fairly valuable.
Plus there are some very nice parallels to collect as well.
3. 2021 Panini Flawless Patch Autograph Justin Fields Rookie Card
For something a little more higher end, take a look at the beautiful Panini Flawless rookie patch autograph card.
Most of the parallels all have low serial numbers and the design of the card is great.
