Joe Burrow Rookie Card – Top 3 Cards, Checklist, and Buyers Guide




Joe Burrow Rookie Card

Joe Burrow rookie cards are one of the hottest cards in the hobby and will only get hotter as we get closer to the NFL season. Burrow was selected with the 1st overall pick by the Cincinnati Bengals in the 2020 NFL Draft out of LSU.

He has been compared to the likes of Ryan Tannehill, Andy Dalton, and Russell Wilson (minus the arm strength of Wilson)

Were not big on comparisons but do think he has what it takes to be an elite QB in the NFL; big-time accuracy, tremendous pocket composure, hard worker, leader, great decision-maker, and a true student of the game.

One big negative is being drafted by the Bengals but we think Burrow has the skills to overcome that… hopefully.

Card of the Month

We feel right now is the perfect time to buy Luka Doncic rookie cards. The Mavericks are out of the playoffs and the spotlight is not shinning on the kid for once. Luka current rookie card prices are most likely the lowest we will ever see them again making it the best time to invest in Luka! We particularly love his Panini Opulence and Panini Prizm rookie cards.

Luka Doncic Rookie Card

The above card is the legendary 2018 Luka Doncic Panini Opulence RPA RC /10… some other blogs have called it the best investment on the planet… we hesitate to go that far BUT would do a lot of things to own that bad boy!
