Brett Favre rookie cards have been some of the most popular football cards in the past two decades. These cards have held their values even though Favre has changed teams twice since leaving the Green Bay Packers. Many people believe that Brett will play another season and his rookie cards will continue to stay popular with collectors. Here are some of the best Brett Favre rookie cards to date with some current values and things to look for when it comes to condition.
1991 Stadium Club
This is one of the most popular Brett Favre rookie cards to date. These cards were not mass produced like many of the other Favre RC’s. They have also held their value and slowly increased in price over the past few years. You can currently by these cards online for about $40 ungraded. Expect to pay about $150-$200 graded in Gem MT 10 condition.
1991 Star Pics Autograph Rookie
These Brett Favre autograph rookie cards were very limited in production. They sell for about $400 ungraded in mint condition. Their have not been too many of these cards graded in Gem MT condition so it is harder to determine the value of these great cards. This might be Favre’s best rookie card in the future due to its limited print run.
1991 Upper Deck
This is one of the more popular Favre football cards as they are some of the most affordable first years cards that he has. You can normally buy these cards for about $3-$5 on Ebay. Make sure you look for centered cards as that is a common flaw with many of these football cards due to bad printing by Upper Deck.
1991 Wild Card 1000 Stripe
There are rumored to be only 10 of these rookie cards to have ever been produced. I would not bet on those numbers but I would agree that these cards are very hard to find do to a limited print run. These cards are also very hard to find in good condition due to the black borders that exist. These borders accentuate flaws in corners and display chipping on many of the borders. Expect to pay close to $1000 for this rare rookie card. This is also the most expensive Brett Favre rookie card to exist.
1991 Ultra Update
These Favre cards are very affordable selling for around $5-$7. If he gets hot these cards normally pick up a lot of steam as they are not as common to find like the 1991 Upper Deck rookie.
If you are a Brett Favre fan or football card collector almost every Brett Favre rookie card is worth owning. He has shattered almost every quarterback record and continues to play in the NFL at a high level. Expect Brett Favre rookie cards to continue to go up in value in the upcoming years.
