Jameis Winston Rookie Cards Guide and Checklist

Jameis Winston

Date of Birth: 1/6/1994
Rookie Card Year: 2015
Investment Rating: 7.5


One of the biggest names heading into the 2015 NFL season, Jameis Winston may not have a pro team yet, but he already has several pre-rookie cards for collectors to chase. Several of the top options are highlighted below, including autographs and memorabilia cards. Jameis Winston rookie cards will be included when they are available.

Exposing him to the masses, Jameis Winston had the ultimate freshman season in 2013. While most use their first year in college to get used to new-found independence, study hard and have a little fun, Winston was busy winning the Heisman Trophy. And if that weren't enough, he led the Florida State Seminoles to a comeback victory in the 2013 BCS title game.

His sophomore effort was not nearly as successful and several off-field controversies did not help. Despite a general decrease in his stats and a one-game suspension, Winston still led the undefeated Seminoles to the inaugural College Football Playoff, where they lost to Oregon in the semifinal game.

Widely expected to go early in the first round of the 2015 NFL Draft, and likely first overall to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, collectors don't have to wait to start their Jameis Winston collections. In addition to a variety of prospect products that release ahead of the draft, Winston was also included in two sets that will pre-date his official rookie cards by several years.

Key Jameis Winston Pre-Rookie Cards

2011 Bowman Perfect Game Jameis Winston

Jameis Winston's first card isn't from the gridiron. A two-sport standout, he participated in the 2011 Perfect Game All-American Classic, an event that has Topps as a partner. Similar to AFLAC cards (Rawlings was the new sponsor), Bowman cards were made on the spot. Some were signed and put in the Topps vault for inclusion in products if they went pro. Players were also given cards to keep or hand out. Many of these cards were signed and traded at the event.

It's worth noting that the 2011 Bowman Perfect Game Jameis Winston has not been inserted in packs. Any found on the secondary market come from the event. Collectors should be cautious when buying signed versions.
