10 Great Football Rookie Cards, 10 Great NFL Defensive Players

10 Great Football Rookie Cards, 10 Great NFL Defensive Players

The NFL Defender might be the most under-appreciated player in the entire sports card world. Fortunately, this makes their cards an extremely great value. Not only are these guys some of the best players in football, there were substantially less of their cards made, which presents collectors with an excellent long-term investment opportunity. Below we look at a handful of cards from an array of Linebackers, Defensive Lineman, Corners, and Safeties. Some have already punched their ticket to Canton, while others are well on their way to greatness.
