CR7 Claims 3rd Champions League Title! Top Cristiano Ronaldo Cards

CR7 Claims 3rd Champions League Title! Top Cristiano Ronaldo Cards

Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the most recognizable global athletes and has been an elite player for two huge franchises: Manchester United and Real Madrid. He also suits up for Portugal in international play and started his pro career at Sporting CP. Although quantities are not exactly plentiful, collectors can find examples that showcase each of these affiliations. Even with limited options, Cristiano Ronaldo cards and autographs are among the most pursued soccer cards in the world.

Despite his immense popularity, there are not a ton of Cristiano Ronaldo cards available to collectors. However, starting with his time on the pitch for Sporting CP, various cards have been produced for the dynamic forward and that number is growing. This card production was ramped up during the period that Cristiano played for United, and several Upper Deck cards are available, including a few signed editions. Since then, a variety of brands have released Cristiano Ronaldo cards, with noteworthy offerings from Topps Match Attax, Panini, Adrenalyn XL, Futera, Sportkings and Topps Premier Gold, among others.

Although certified Cristiano Ronaldo autographs remain relatively rare, several have emerged in the last few years and are his most valuable cardboard collectibles. Collectors can look to 2014 Panini Prizm World Cup for some of the key autographs from Cristiano, as well as other stars in the world of football. Also, one of the most anticipated high-end soccer sets of all-time — 2016 Flawless — is slated to include on-card autographs and game-worn relics for Ronaldo. The following list includes the best CR7 cards for collectors to chase. Most are in short supply, but they are not impossible to track down.

2002-03 Panini Mega Craques Cristiano Ronaldo #137

Cristiano Ronaldo's first card comes from his days at Sporting Clube de Portugal. The card features an action image of a very young Cristiano and the value has been steadily increasing. Most collectors consider this to be the true Cristiano Ronaldo rookie card and prices reflect that.

2002-03 Panini Stickers Cristiano Ronaldo #306

Not quite on the same level as his traditional Mega Craques card, the simple sticker for Cristiano has still proven to be popular and valuable with collectors. Don't let the basic look fool you as high grades can push into the four-figure range.

2003-04 Upper Deck Manchester United Cristiano Ronaldo #13,14,15

Cristiano Ronaldo came onto the world stage when he joined Manchester United and his first cards with ManU came from Upper Deck. Three different base cards document his inaugural season with the famed club and the limited parallels produce strong values.

2003-04 Upper Deck Manchester United ManUscripts Red Cristiano Ronaldo #R #/39

Also found in the Upper Deck Manchester United product, the very first certified autograph for Cristiano Ronaldo was a ManUscripts sticker autograph. The base red card is only numbered to 39 and a black parallel features a different image and is numbered to 25.

2004-05 SP Authentic Manchester United Sign of the Times Cristiano Ronaldo #/173

The following year, SP Authentic produced a Manchester United product. One of the biggest highlights was a Cristiano Ronaldo Sign of the Times sticker autograph, numbered to 173. The horizontal layout offers a unique look, but most of the autographs from both sets have not held up well over time. He also has a trio of base cards in the product.

2013 Sportkings Autographs Silver Cristiano Ronaldo #ACR #/15 (5 versions)

2013 Sportkings included five different Cristiano Ronaldo autographs, each numbered to just 15. The generic look is not ideal, but they are his first on-card autographs. Even more rare, gold parallels are numbered to five.

2013-14 Topps Premier Gold International Icons Autographs Cristiano Ronaldo #SP-CR

Part of the 2013-14 Topps Premier Gold product that covered the EPL, Cristiano Ronaldo is the top autograph option despite leaving the Premier League in 2009. Although the base version that shows him with Manchester United is not numbered, values remain strong and numbered parallels command even more.

2014 Panini Prizm World Cup Signatures Cristiano Ronaldo #S-CR

2014 Panini Prizm World Cup is one of the most popular Cristiano Ronaldo autographs to date and documents his 2014 World Cup with Portugal. Although no print runs were released, it appears that this card is less available than most of the other signers from the set and values are strong. Collectors can also find a Combo Signatures insert that pairs Ronaldo with either Pele or Pepe. These rare cards carry a print run of ten base copies to go along with ten more Prizm parallels for a total of 20.

2015-16 Topps UEFA Champions League Showcase Autographs Cristiano Ronaldo

Taking on additional significance given the 2015-16 Champions League title for Real Madrid that saw Ronaldo seal the win on penalties, collectors will actually have a very tough time tracking down this signed card. Although he was listed on the final autograph checklist in 2015-16 Topps UEFA Champions League Showcase, only a signed printing plate has surfaced for Cristiano Ronaldo.
