The number one pick shows promise. A highly regarded running back does too. A defensive star in college is already one in the pro ranks. Kyler Murray, Josh Jacobs and Nick Bosa won’t likely be the only great players to eventually emerge from the class, but right now at least, they’re typically at the top of the list of the best 2019 NFL rookie cards.
Don’t sleep on Deebo Samuel, N’Keal Harry, Drew Lock, Daniel Jones, Clelin Ferrell, Josh Allen, Darnell Savage, Ed Oliver or Marquise Brown either. The ’19 class still has strong potential, although in the current marketplace, it’s the offensive talents that tend to get most of the rookie cards that are produced by Panini America.
While 2019 NFL rookies first began appearing on trading cards in the immediate wake of the draft, their best–or at least the most sought after and often pricey–rookie cards typically arrive late or even after the season when products like National Treasures, Flawless and Immaculate are released.
If you’re on a budget, there are plenty of base cards of the 2019 NFL rookie class to collect that won’t cost more than a few dollars–if that. If you’re after the autographs and autographed relic cards, you’ll pay more, of course, but the potential long-term rewards will be greater.
