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.
