It’s not likely to be a big seller in Chicago, but there’s now a limited edition, fully licensed football card commemorating one of the more memorable moments of the 2021 NFL season.
As part of its Week 6 online drop, Panini America has included Aaron Rodgers’ post touchdown celebration and “I Own You” response to a certain gesture by a Bears fan in their new football cards offered through Fanatics properties. The card features Rodgers’ “title belt” celebration on the front and a short description of what happened on the play and afterward on the back. it’s priced at $24.99 and will be available until sold out.
The card steers clear of showing Rodgers’ verbal exchanges with fans that led to his now famous statement. Rodgers told reporters afterward a female fan at Soldier Field had given him a “double bird” after his touchdown run essentially ended the game.
“I STILL OWN YOU!”

The photo on the front shows the moment before the profane exchanges between the disappointed fan and Rodgers, who bellowed “I still own you!” a couple of times, with a short vulgarity of his own tossed in for good measure.
The taunts were a little out of character for the typically composed Rodgers, who jokingly told reporters after the game that he had seen the woman’s gesture to him immediately after turning toward fans and “blacked out.”
Rodgers has tortured Bears fans during his career as the Packers starter. He’s now 22-5 against Chicago.
If you want one of the cards, you might have to act fast. They’re limited to just 99 copies.
Bears fans can take some solace in a new card featuring running back Khalil Herbert’s successful first start.
Panini/Fanatics offer a series of cards each week that showcase top moments and performances in the previous week’s games. Packers receiver Davante Adams’ career high 200+-yard game was among the cards highlighted the week before. Some of those remain available. Other cards now available include one featuring top draft pick Trevor Lawrence’s first win and Dolphins rookie Jaylen Waddle’s two touchdown catches against the Jaguars.
