Above is a list of Robert Griffin III rookie cards from the 2012 NFL season. There are many more parallel and insert cards that you can also find of RGIII. The ones listed are cards I consider to be his ‘main’ rookie from that set, although Topps and Panini sometimes make it tough to judge what the actual “RC” card is.

Very few rookies in the NFL have had such an impact on his team and the NFL like Robert Griffin III did during his rookie season. His rookie cards were highly collectible and sold for as much or more than fellow rookie Andrew Luck. RGIII got hurt a few times during his rookie season, and even suffered a serious injury late in the season that required off-season surgery. Many fans expect a full recovery, and his rookie cards are still some of the most coveted in the game right now.

If I were to purchase just one Robert Griffin III rookie card, I’d probably just go with his 2012 Panini National Treasures #/99 because it’s one of his most rare rookie cards. Although you really can’t go wrong with any rookie card you get of his.

In only his second season in 2011, Rob Gronkowski had one of the best seasons a tight end has ever had in the history of the NFL. He caught an amazing 17 touchdowns and an incredible 1,300+ passing yards. Sure, having Tom Brady as your QB makes it easier, but this young TE has quickly solidified himself as one of the games best at the TE position.

Putting up numbers like he did in 2011 has put the spotlight on Gronkowski’s sports cards as well. His rookie cards trade at levels much higher than even other Pro-Bowl TE’s that were drafted in the same draft class. Even Gronkowski’s rookie year numbers are impressive … leaving many to believe that he could end up having a great career.

If Rob Gronkowski can keep playing at an elite level, collectors will continue to pay more for his cards. His National Treasures, SP Authentic, Exquisite and Topps Five Star Autograph are some of his most collectible rookie cards, although  all of his rookie cards have some value. The list above consists of Rob Gronkowski’s main set rookie cards, and also autographs and/or relic cards within that set that trade like rookies as well. Keep in mind there are numerous parallel versions to the lists above, and Topps Platinum is a good example of a set with multiple tiers of rookie cards.

Considering how well fellow rookie QB’s Cam Newton and Andy Dalton played during the 2011 season, it was somewhat easy for fans to overlook the #8 pick in the draft. Jake Locker only got to play in 5 games during his rookie season, filling in for starting QB Matt Hasselbeck. However, in those few games, Locker did impress fans – and never threw an interception … so his card values remained elevated for most of his rookie season.

The above list should get you started with all the Jake Locker main issue cards + some cards that trade like rookie cards. For example, Topps Prime is a weird set where every rookie actually has a few different cards that could be considered a ‘rookie’ so I tried to list most of them. Most of Topps sets are like this, and SP Authentic is another good example of this from another manufacture.

In terms of what to buy when shopping for Jake Locker rookie cards. I think if you want to just get a ‘base’ or non-autographed rookie card – his Topps Chrome #185 might be the best choice. If you’ve got some money to spend, the autographed version of the Topps Chrome ++ SP Authentic Patch/Auto, National Treasures, and Five Star are all very collectible cards/brands that should go up in value if Jake Locker has a great career.

Athletically gifted and talented, Gresham has the ability to lineup at TE and sometimes in a WR formation. He’s also used to having good QB’s throw him the ball, as Gresham’s quarterback at Oklahoma was Sam Bradford, and many thought former USC strand-out Carson Palmer was going to be his QB in Cincinnati. Turns out Andy Dalton ended up with the job and the two have seemed to develop a nice chemistry, as they both made the Pro-Bowl for the 1st time in Dalton’s first season.

Gresham was one of the NFL players selected to attend the 2010 NFL Photo Shoot, so he has lot of rookie autograph, and other cards to choose from. Some of his best rookie cards are his 2010 Topps Five Star Autograph and National Treasures Autograph cards. Fans from his Oklahoma days would enjoy his cards from Upper Deck, as they feature him in his Sooners uniform. The above list includes all his main cards, and some of the cards that trade like rookies in as many sets as I could find. Also keep in mind that the jerseys pieces were not worn in an NFL game for cards made during Gresham’s rookie year.

Ryan Mallett autographed rookie’s and cards were collectible for the entire 2011 NFL season even though he didn’t play. He had many cards from Panini, Topps, Upper Deck and Leaf. His autograph cards traded at high values, often selling for higher prices than Andy Dalton – who made the Pro bowl. As long as he doesn’t play and sits behind all pro QB Tom Brady his card values will probably stay high. Matt Cassel, Aaron Rodgers and other QBs have sat for many years only to watch their card values go up once they got to play.

Ryan Mallett’s most valuable cards are probably his Upper Deck cards, his Topps Chrome autograph card along with his Panini National Treasures autograph card numbered to just 99 copies. Note that the above list has ‘material’ and ‘jersey’ cards listed, these are all jersey pieces that were obtained during the 2011 NFL rookie photo shoot and were not worn in an NFL game.
