Patrick Mahomes Rookie Card Countdown

Share:

Not long ago, you could have found a Patrick Mahomes Rookie Card or two flying under the hobby radar. Being a quarterback and a top ten draft pick, he’s never really been overlooked. However, with limited action in his first season, attention was elsewhere.

That’s changed in a hurry.

Patrick Mahomes Rookie Card

Following the 2017 season, Kansas City traded Alex Smith to Washington. In the process, Mahomes was crowned the new Chiefs starting quarterback. That’s when some started to take notice and really speculate. Then the season got underway.

The results, although very early, have been nothing short of revelatory. Week 1’s four-touchdown performance against the Los Angeles Chargers was strong. Mahomes followed it up with six more in Week 2 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Those ten total touchdowns broke a record for the most through two games. You may have heard of the former record holders who each had nine — Peyton Manning and Drew Brees.

It turns out Mahomes was just getting started. He’s already a Super Bowl Champion and won the NFL’s MVP award. His leadership on and off the field has further endeared Mahomes to fans. Simply put, Patrick Mahomes is the biggest star in football not named Tom Brady.

Patrick Mahomes Rookie Cards have taken on a meteoric rise since he took over in Kansas City. His top cards have broken records and are among the pace setters in the entire hobby.

Patrick Mahomes Rookie Card Overview

Being a top quarterback prospect entering his rookie season, Panini had Patrick Mahomes Rookie Cards well covered. He has over 30 RC cards found in mainstream base sets. And that doesn’t include the other inserts, parallels, autographs and memorabilia cards that number in the hundreds.

That means a lot of choice for collectors when it comes to picking out the right cards that fit their budget and collecting tastes. Some are basic and plentiful, others loaded up with autographs, patches and small print runs. Some carry a deep sense of tradition with their design while others are anything but.

At the moment, all Patrick Mahomes Rookie Cards continue to show tremendous growth. And with each stellar performance, win and championship, that momentum continues to build.

So whether you’re a Chiefs fan, someone sitting on a stash of Patrick Mahomes Rookie Cards or someone looking to add some to your collection, hold on because it looks like we’re in for a wild ride.

    Why is Rookies & Stars Stellar series not anywhere on this list? Patrick Mahomes card #5 for example.

  2. Lawrence Smith 22 November, 2020 at 09:09

    I would flip #2 and #1. A card with a GEM in it trumps a patch we know that player never wore.
