Tony Romo Football Cards, Rookie Cards and Autographed Memorabilia Guide

Tony Romo

Date of Birth: 4/21/1980
Rookie Card Year: 2003
Investment Rating: 6.5


Overview

It is hard to imagine a more frustrating football player to collect than Tony Romo. His career has been marked by peaks, valleys and unfulfilled expectations. But he continues to show enough glimpses of greatness to keep demand for Tony Romo cards high. Because he signed as an undrafted rookie with the Cowboys, Romo has far fewer rookie cards than other players from the 2003 rookie class.

Playing for "America's Team" immediately bumps the collecting popularity of Tony Romo cards and memorabilia as the Cowboys have such a devoted and far-reaching fanbase.

The strong following also leads to increased scrutiny, as Romo has experienced.

At this point, the big thing missing from Romo's resume is postseason success. This keeps him from joining the ranks of other elite quarterback collecting options. Romo's days are numbered if he cannot lead the team deep into the playoffs and this is what makes him such a risky investment.

Top Tony Romo Rookie Cards

2003 SP Authentic Tony Romo RC #217 Autograph #/1,200

Romo SP Auth RC Image

Although the SP Authentic autograph card has a higher print run than the Playoff Contenders card, the on-card signature makes this the king of Tony Romo cards -- rookie and otherwise. The modern profile has an understated layout and does not detract from the signature.

2003 Playoff Contenders Tony Romo RC #156 Autograph #/999

Romo Playoff RC Image

Playoff Contenders rookie autographs always have a strong following among rookie chasers. Combine that with a low print run and this is one of the most solid Tony Romo cards that a collector can invest in. The hologram sticker is a little overwhelming, though.
