Marcus Mariota rookie cards are some of the hottest collectibles in today’s hobby.  The Tennessee Titans superstar showed he was well worth the #2 pick in the 2015 NFL Draft.  Marcus showed great poise in his rookie season and dazzled fans with his long touchdown runs.  His pinpoint accuracy showed fans that he belongs in the NFL.  Fans flocked to card shows looking to buy the most expensive Marcus Mariota rookie cards.  Mariota has been often been compared to Jameis Winston and Joe Montana.  Marcus already has cards that sell for over $2,000 which is pretty amazing when you consider it was his first year in the NFL.  Marcus Mariota autographed football cards are definitely his most valuable football cards while limited-edition parallels are coming in at a close second.

In 2015 there were more than 2,000 different Marcus Mariota rookie cards produced.  This is not a misprint.  Card manufacturers like Topps and Panini made sure to include the young superstar in almost every set they produced.  This crazy sum of rookie cards can leave buyers perplexed.  Here we will break down the difference of the various Marcus Mariota football cards produced in 2015.

Most Affordable Marcus Mariota Rookie Cards

Base cards are normally the most affordable cards you can buy.  These rookie cards are limited in production compared to inserts, parallels or autographed cards.  These football cards still make great collectibles and are much more commonly traded in the hobby.  Some are more limited than others.  Short printed photo variations have become popular to give collectors a more limited version to choose from of the base card. Mariota has more than a few photo variation rookies that sell for 3-4 times the base card.  Buyers should pay close attention to the condition of these cards before making a purchase.

Marcus Mariota Autographed Football Cards

Marcus has tons of rookie cards, but not all of them are autographed.  Many of his cards have been signed.  Typically, the lower the print run the more valuable the cards.  Topps, Panini, and Upper Deck even included game-used jersey swatches on some Marcus Mariota rookies.  These cards are high ticket items and not meant for those on a fixed budget.
