Buy Professionally Graded Tua Tagovailoa Rookie Cards on eBay

Tua Tagovailoa Rookie Card

Tua Tagoviloa attended the University of Alabama under Nick Saban and was drafted by the Miami Dolphins with the 5th pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Bio: DOB: 3/2/1998, Birthplace: Ewa Beach HW, Height: 6’0, Weight: 217, Hands: 10, Arms: 30.5

Tua has good instincts, is accurate, and has a good pocket presence which allows him to thrive in the pocket (and hopefully in the NFL but we have our doubts). He is also athletic and mobile which allows him to avoid sacks BUT also increases the risk of injury.

Some of the negatives include in regards to Tua Tagoviloa scouting include… less than ideal height, not an “elite arm”, injury concerns, and drafted by the Miami Dolphins… the worse possibly being the latter.

Investment Rating: 7.1 out of 10

Best Tua Rookie Card: Panini Rated Rookie Prizm RC #3

There are two ways to play Tua right now… don’t invest in his cards… or buy now and then sell before his first start (when the hype is the greatest).

Too many red flags abound when looking at Tua Tagovailoa rookie cards as a long term investment as we think injuries and being drafted by the Miami Dolphins will be too much for the kid to overcome… we foresee a career backup in the NFL at best.
