Best Joe Burrow Rookie Card Options

We may earn money or products from the companies mentioned in this post.

Joe Burrow’s cards are some of the most in-demand cards from the 2020s. The good news is that there are many different options that you can go for; the bad news is that you might face a lot of competition from fellow card collectors.

Drafted in 2020, Joe Burrow was a recruit from Iowa for the Cincinnati Bengals, picked as the #1 pick in the 2020 draft.

Burrow comes from a family with a long history in football, with Joe’s father, Jim, also being a good football player himself.

If you’re looking for a good Joe Burrow rookie card for you, then you’ll have many great options. We’ll go through some of the best ones here to help you make an easier decision.

Top Joe Burrow Rookie Card Options

Take a look at these options for Joe Burrow rookie cards. We’ll start with the base and more mainstream options and move on to more expensive ones towards the end.

2020 Panini Prizm Joe Burrow RC #307

2020 Panini Prizm Joe Burrow RC #307

The 2020 Panini Prizm should be among the first cards on your to-buy checklist if you:

  • Want something that’ll age well
  • Looking for a card that’s not going to make you go bankrupt
  • Want a reliable option

Panini Prizm is perhaps one of the most, if not the most, reputable card brands when it comes to football.

There’s no doubt that it’s one of the most easily and widely available cards out there. You will probably not have any problems with getting the base card, although some of the parallels can get quite expensive.

That’s of course if you want to have something a bit more extraordinary in your collection.

You’ll find parallels of all kinds, but just know that some of these can get quite expensive. Among the most popular parallels are Silver Prizm, Red, White, and Blue, and Orange Lazer.

2020 Donruss Optic Rated Rookie Joe Burrow RC #151

Next up is the Donruss Optic Rated Rookie Joe Burrow rookie card. For this card, similar things can be said as with the Panini Prizm card.

It’s a widely available card that comes with a relatively big print run. Secondly, it should be quite easy to find, even in the best conditions. And thirdly, you should not have to spend extortionate amounts to get the base version.

The Donruss Optic design has not changed much from previous years’ designs with this 2020 card. You still get an action shot of Burrow and a red-white design, which livens things up a bit.

This one might be one of the first options when it comes to Joe Burrow rookie cards if you’re on a budget and you prefer a highly reliable option.

Taking a look at the parallels, you have the typical Holo parallel which is often seen with these Donruss Optic cards.

If you can stretch your budget a bit, then it’s probably better to go for the Holo version of the card as it’s going to be a slightly more premium option. Else, the base version is also a great option.

2020 Panini Select Joe Burrow RC #146

2020 Panini Select Joe Burrow RC #146

Panini Select is a popular choice among those collectors who are on a budget.

It’s fair to say that in comparison with more expensive cards, this one is nothing spectacular. But still, it gets a lot of attention from collectors of all types.

One of the main reasons for that is the popularity of the Panini Select brand.

Over the years, it’s become the go-to brand for budget card collectors, in particular, providing some excellent card options for some of the best sportsmen in the world for modest prices.

And this one’s no different.

If you prefer something a bit rarer, then you might want to consider its parallels. The parallels for this card are also known as Prizms, and you’ll have all types of colors to choose from, as well as different designs.

For example, one of the most valuable parallels is the Red Disco parallel, which is going to be quite expensive.

Here’s what it looks like:

As you can see, the image on this parallel is different than the image on the base card.

A card like this can cost thousands and potentially even more if the card is graded (this one above is not).

2020 Panini Score Joe Burrow RC #438

2020 Panini Score Joe Burrow RC #438

Next in the category of budget rookie cards is the 2020 Score card.

Score is a card brand with a lot of history. In the past, this was one of the main card brands for football, although it was pushed out by bigger and more powerful brands later on, sadly.

Today, it represents a great option for those collectors who are on a budget.

That’s why this 2020 Score card of Joe Burrow remains a highly popular option for collectors who don’t want to spend a fortune on a football card.

It has a pretty basic design. One interesting feature of this card is the fact that it depicts a Joe Burrow playing for Ohio State, which might suit some collectors, while others might be turned away by this feature.

2020 Panini Absolute Joe Burrow RC #158

2020 Panini Absolute Joe Burrow RC #158

Panini Absolute is home to one of the most popular Joe Burrow rookie cards out there, and many more outrageous parallels.

The Absolute base card is a good option for those who want a budget card.

If you find the design of this base card attractive, then go for it. Some would say that it might look a bit dated, but the good thing about it is that it won’t cost you that much.

There are a bunch of different parallels that came with this set (And other Panini sets listed)

The most popular is the Kaboom! parallel, which looks like this:

Perhaps this card would’ve deserved its category because it’s vastly different from the base Absolute card.

But it still falls under the Absolute brand, although it comes from a different release than the base card. Overall, this is one of the more expensive Joe Burrow cards, on the whole, thanks to its relative rarity and a shiny look that attracts a lot of attention.

If you’re prepared to spend a few thousand dollars, then this card could be yours. Watch out for ungraded cards because there are many, so it’s better to go for a graded option instead.

2020 Panini Mosaic Joe Burrow RC #201

2020 Panini Mosaic Joe Burrow RC #201

Next up on his list of Joe Burrow cards is this Panini Mosaic card, which is considered to be on the list of budget cards.

The Mosaic card is known for its big print run but also for its easy availability, which naturally decreases the prices. An interesting thing about these cards is that Mosaic cards are relatively new as a concept, as they were released for the first time for football in 2020.

This means that collectors now have a chance to own something different and new, which you don’t always get. So if you’d like to try something new this time, then you might want to consider this option.

We also must mention the presence of the autographed version, which also gets a lot of attention from collectors:

Now, the auto card is a bit rarer than the base cards, which reflects in the prices for this option. You can consider it if you’re prepared to spend a bit more.

This card brand is also home to some of the most epic parallels that you’ll find out there.

For example, this Red Mosaic card is one of the more common parallels for this card, but it’s still far more expensive than the base cards. There are also other Mosaics like Gold or Green, which also get quite a lot of attention.

2020 Panini Flawless Joe Burrow RC Auto

2020 Panini Flawless Joe Burrow RC Auto

Panini Flawless cards have a reputation for being among the more premium card options for football.

They’re some of the most elegant and beautiful cards out there, and they also have an autograph, which drives the price up.

Of course, these cards are also limited in terms of print runs, so you might have some difficulty finding this card for a sensible price.

This card in the image above is the base Flawless card which only has 25 copies to its name, which means the prices are going to be quite high. Other Panini Flawless options might be a bit better fit for you.

For example, this is the Ruby alternative which has largely the same design as the base card, with a few notable differences – the biggest being the color of the card.

Also, the Ruby parallel is limited to 15 copies, which means it could be even more expensive than the base Flawless card.

2020 Immaculate Collection Joe Burrow RC Patch

2020 Immaculate Collection Joe Burrow RC Patch

Immaculate cards have always belonged to the category of premium cards, and this one’s no different.

There are different varieties for this card, which will give you a bit more freedom when picking your favorite option.

This card in the image above has a triple patch, which is interesting in and of itself; there are also different color options and some Immaculate cards also have an autograph, so you’ll have a lot of choices with this card.

Just know that this sort of design and elegance also comes at a higher price.

Firstly because these cards have a limited print run, but also because they are unique and have premium features on them. So you might need to spend several thousand dollars to get one of these, but if you can afford it, it’s worth it!

2020 Panini National Treasures Joe Burrow RC Auto Patch #151

2020 Panini National Treasures Joe Burrow RC Auto Patch #151

This list of Joe Burrow rookie cards just wouldn’t be complete without a National Treasures card hidden somewhere on that list. As you might expect, these cards usually cost slightly more, which is mainly because of the premium features on the card.

This card has an autograph, a limited print run, and a jersey patch, which is what National Treasures cards are known for, to be honest.

You’ll also get an elegant, premium design to go with these features, so the prices for this card can get quite high.

If the card is in good condition and if it is graded, you might need to spend several thousand dollars to get it, but if you have a chance to get in on the action early on, then it’s a great option for you.

2020 Panini Contenders Joe Burrow Patch RC

2020 Panini Contenders Joe Burrow Patch RC

Panini Contenders Rookie Ticket cards usually have a reputation for being the most expensive rookie card out there; however, for Joe Burrow, the situation is a little bit different this time around.

It might be available for a relatively cheap price, which might come down to the lack of autographs.

There is a variety of images that you’ll find on this card, which is good to know if you want to have something different and unique. At the moment, there are many cards of this type listed on marketplaces, so you probably won’t have any problems finding one that suits you and for a decent price.

I didn’t think I would be saying this but for Joe Burrown, the Panini Contenders card seems to be one of the bargain purchases.
