Overview

Few players in the NFL or collecting world have received the hype and media-focus bestowed on Johnny Manziel. The most polarizing NFL figure since Tim Tebow, Manziel is still popular with collectors despite a disappointing rookie season in the NFL.

Johnny Manziel emerged from relative anonymity as a mid-level quarterback recruit to take college football by storm. During his first college season, Manziel put up huge numbers, helped Texas A&M upset the defending NCAA National Champions, the University of Alabama, and became the first true freshman to ever win the Heisman Trophy.

"Johnny Football" followed up his Heisman season with another great year, but was dogged by allegations that he broke NCAA rules by accepting money for signing autographs. Although there were fears that he might lose his eligibility, Manziel was only suspended for one half. While the team's title aspirations were eventually dashed, the Aggies and Manziel finished on a high note, winning a shoot-out against Duke in the 2013 Chick-fil-a Bowl.

Soon after, Johnny Manziel announced that he would forego his junior year and declared for the 2014 NFL Draft. The gunslinger continued to make headlines leading up the draft, with most expecting him to be taken in the first round. While he was not the first quarterback taken, Manziel was selected by the Cleveland Browns with the 22nd overall pick in the first round.

In an interesting development, the NFL was not the only league to draft Johnny Manziel. In addition to Cleveland, he also heard his name called by the San Diego Padres in the 28th round of the 2014 MLB Draft and the Harlem Globetrotters also selected him in their annual draft.

After a rookie season that nearly killed all the hobby excitement for Manziel, fans and collectors are left with more questions than answers and his future in Cleveland is very uncertain.

Collectors should be aware that Manziel signed an exclusive with Panini Authentic, so that is the best place to start the search for any of his Cleveland Browns autographed memorabilia.

Johnny Manziel cards from college-themed and prospect products can be seen on the next tab. Leaf was the first major producer to get on the Johnny Football bandwagon, producing cut signature cards while he was still in college.

The following list includes all the Johnny Manziel rookie cards from Panini and Topps that are currently available. The Topps rookie cards are shown first, followed by the Panini cards.

Topps Cards

2014 Bowman Johnny Manziel RC #9

2014 Topps Five Star Base Autograph Johnny Manziel #FSA-JM

While it might not be an official Johnny Manziel rookie because of the lack of a true base set in 2014 Topps Five Star, this is a very appealing option for collectors thanks to the premium design and brand power.

With a distinct look and on-card signature, 2014 Topps Inception brings collectors a popular autographed rookie card.

2014 Topps Museum Collection Johnny Manziel RC #30

Not as exciting as the hits that populate the high-end product, the base rookie for Johnny Manziel in 2014 Museum Collection goes with a simple and classic design.

2014 Topps Museum Collection Johnny Manziel RC #30

2014 Topps Platinum Johnny Manziel RC #126

One of the nicer budget rookies for Johnny Manziel, all the base rookie cards are Refractors and the minimal design allows that to be the main focus of the card.

2014 Topps Platinum Johnny Manziel RC #126

2014 Topps Prime Johnny Manziel RC #144

While there is not much fundamental difference between this and the Johnny Manziel rookie in 2014 Topps Flagship, collectors who enjoy full-bleed over bordered cards should check 2014 Topps Prime out. Continuing a common theme in the hobby today, the base variation is shown on the right.

2014 Topps Supreme Johnny Manziel RC #88 #/162

One of the more plentiful rookie options in Triple Threads, this Johnny Manziel rookie card is numbered to 99 but there are actually three versions. While the card has an appealing design and layout, the sticker is disappointing and the dark jersey pieces seem to blend into card.

2014 Topps Turkey Red Johnny Manziel #1

Part of the all-rookie retail release, the vintage feel of 2014 Topps Turkey Red gives it a distinct look. The base Johnny Manziel card also has short print variation and the product is only found at Target.

2014 Topps Valor Johnny Manziel RC #50

2014 Panini Prestige Johnny Manziel RC #253

With a re-used image and generic feel, this base 2014 Prestige rookie card for Manziel  is not likely to wow anyone. Collectors have  shown more interest in the base rookie variation, which shows Manizel in his NFL gear.

A popular low-end release, 2014 Score is a great way for budget collectors to obtain a simple rookie card for Johnny Manziel.
