1980s football was the site of a massive leap forward for the NFL. The league was starting to distance itself from a reputation of unnecessary violence and offenses were evolving into more sophisticated units. The NFL also received some competition from the upstart USFL, who even managed to steal a few high-profile players during their brief existence. Collectors are now left with a decade full of great cards and rookie options from both the NFL and USFL. Some of the most iconic players in NFL history have rookie cards during this period. Once again, Topps had a stranglehold on the decade. A few other brands were intermittently available as well, including Fleer, Pro Set, and the very popular, 1989 Score.

With so many great rookie options, collectors would be hard-pressed to identify the best un-biased choice from the 1980s. However, it is likely found in a prominent grouping that includes John Elway, Joe Montana, Jerry Rice, Barry Sanders, Troy Aikman, and Steve Young (USFL). The decade also features popular rookie cards from Reggie White, Jim Kelly (USFL), Bo Jackson, Herschel Walker (USFL), Bruce Smith, Lawrence Taylor, Eric Dickerson, Ronnie Lott, and Warren Moon.
