The Best Romelu Lukaku Cards to Collect

As a seasoned card collector with over 20 years of experience, I have had the pleasure of witnessing the rise and achievements of numerous football stars. One such player who has consistently captured the attention of fans and collectors alike is Romelu Lukaku. With his recent transfer to Chelsea FC, Lukaku’s popularity has soared, resulting in an increased demand for his trading cards. In this article, we will explore some of the best Romelu Lukaku cards available in the market today, highlighting their significance and value to collectors.

Romelu Lukaku 2024

As of now, his move to Chelsea FC has created a surge in demand for his cards, resulting in an increase in their value. Collectors should keep an eye out for limited edition releases or special sets that feature Lukaku in his new club colors. Additionally, any achievements or milestones reached by Lukaku while playing for Chelsea will likely have a positive impact on the value of his cards.

Furthermore, it’s worth noting that Romelu Lukaku has been performing exceptionally well in recent seasons, consistently scoring goals and making significant contributions to his team’s success. This has further boosted his reputation and increased the desirability of his cards among collectors.

Romelu Lukaku Rookie Card: 2009/10 Panini Foot Belgium #23

This card from the 2009/10 season is incredibly hard to come across. Which, when you think about it, makes a lot of sense.

  1. The set was only released in Belgium
  2. Soccer stickers weren’t a massive deal in 2009 so people didn’t put them away to keep
  3. Regular hurdles with stickers, like people sticking them into collector books

At the time of writing, there was only one of these stickers graded. That should rise as soccer stickers get more popular, but the number won’t explode overnight. 

If you can get your hands on this sticker though, it’s a great find.

2018 World Cup Prizm Lukaku Cards

2018 was Lukaku’s first World Cup as a key man for Belgium (although he was in the 2014 squad). In Russia, he scored four goals, leading the Belgian side throughout the tournament.

With that, it meant that Lukaku got his first World Cup Prizm – he wasn’t on the 2014 checklist.

Because it’s a Prizm, there’s about 2435 different parallels and refractors to sort though. But they’re a great set regardless. To many, this is the Lukaku card that is easiest to obtain. You’ll probably see more fluctuation in Prizm prices because there is so many of them compared to other sets – so there’s more sales.

2016 Panini Prizm UEFA Lukaku

Another Prizm from a leading international tournament, the 2016 EURO Prizm set includes some beautiful Lukaku cards.

Again, because it’s a Prizm, there’s multiple parallels with different levels of scarcity.

Some of the super-rare cards from this set are still highly valued in the hobby.

2014 World Cup Sticker Lukaku

While the 2018 Prizm is Lukaku’s first Prizm Card, he was actually on the 2014 World Cup sticker checklist.

Sure, modern World Cup stickers don’t necessarily have the reputation that the card sets do, but I absolutely LOVE World Cup stickers from every tournament, and the 2014 ones are slept on a bit, with all of the eyes focusing on Prizm.

Other Lukaku Cards

While this was only a quick selection of some Lukaku cards, there’s plenty more to look at.
