Rookie Card Year: 1986
Investment Rating: 7.0
Jerry Rice card collectors are a devoted bunch. Rice is widely considered the greatest wide receiver of all-time. During his storied career, Rice set NFL records for most career touchdowns (208), receptions (1,549) and receiving yards (22,895). The Hall of Famer teamed with Joe Montana and Steve Young to win three Super Bowls and was named the Super Bowl XXIII MVP. Rice played for four teams during his 20-year career but will always be remembered for his time with the San Francisco 49ers. Known for his work ethic and love of the game, Rice makes a great addition to any football or sports collection.
Inducted into the Pro Football Hall Of Fame in 2010, Rice has likely achieved the last big honor of his career and there is nothing on the horizon that will push values higher. Collectors expecting big returns are out of luck, but Jerry Rice card and memorabilia values will hold for the time being and should slowly push higher over time. Despite his many contributions to the game, Rice's autograph prices are very reasonable.
There is just one rookie Jerry Rice card. His 1986 Topps Football card is the top-draw for collectors in a rookie class that also includes Reggie White, Andre Reed and his 49ers teammate, Steve Young.
Jerry Rice Rookie Card Checklist
The design on the lone Jerry Rice rookie card is anything but boring. Diagonal striping over a green background evokes an awkward image of a football field. Combined with a thin yellow border, red name box and light blue team box, the card is a bizarre combination of colors. It's a rather unfortunate-looking Jerry Rice card. It has centering issues but even mint versions can be had for a few hundred dollars.
