WHEN IT COMES TO FOOTBALL CARDS, QUARTER- BACKS DOMINATE. SO IT SHOULDN’T COME AS A SURPRISE THAT AS THE BUFFALO BILLS EMERGE AS AN AFC FAVORITE, JOSH ALLEN ROOKIE CARD INTEREST HAS RISEN.

Allen is the centerpiece of an explosive and exciting Bills offense that is racking up points. This means lots of highlights and it’s translating into wins.

The seventh pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, Allen was taken after Baker Mayfield and Sam Darnold. During their rookie season, this meant that Allen’s early cards had a certain level of popularity but lagged behind the top two picks. Then in 2019, Lamar Jackson put together an MVP season in Baltimore. So it wasn’t until 2020 that interest really pegan to pick up.

Collectors have more than 30 Josh Allen Rookie Cards to chase. And that’s just his traditional base RCs. On top of those are lots of parallels, inserts, autographs and memorabilia cards. As one would expect, there’s a range of prices available in the Allen RC lineup. Some are a few dollars while National Treasures RCs fetch thousands.
