Derek Carr Rookie Card Gallery and Checklist

Derek Carr Rookie Card Gallery and Checklist

Certainly not overlooked coming out of college, it was still easy for Derek Carr rookie cards to be lost in the shuffle for collectors thanks to other popular quarterbacks that debuted in 2014. However, Derek Carr was the opening game starter for the Oakland Raiders in his first year and has become one of the best young QBs in the game since then. This, in turn, has increased the interest for Carr's earliest cards.

Like most modern players, Derek Carr has a good variety of cards for collectors to chase. Official NFL options are available from Panini and Topps, and can be seen below. Collectors will notice that many cards utilize the same images, especially among the early releases. However, most of the base rookie cards also feature limited photo variations. As a rule, collectors gravitate to the autographed Derek Carr rookie cards, especially the hard-signed editions. This puts Contenders, Crown Royale, Inception, Five Star and National Treasures among his most popular rookie choices.

Shop for Derek Carr cards on eBay.

Upper Deck and Leaf offer additional options that can generally be found for lower prices as they are not NFL-licensed. Notable Derek Carr cards from Leaf and Upper Deck are also highlighted in the gallery. All Upper Deck cards feature a college theme, showcasing Carr's Fresno State career. Upper Deck's deep history of brands allows them to tap into some popular sets, steeped in nostalgia.

Taking a different tactic, Leaf uses airbrushed college images. Because most feature on-card autographs combined with quality designs and a limited print run, this has made them a popular alternative. Leaf Trinity is the clear standout for those interested in Derek Carr pre-rookie cards.

The following guide looks at all the Derek Carr rookie cards in 2014 football products. Official rookie cards are shown as well as the main options for products without a true rookie card subset.

  1. Could you update this list?
    And maybe get a Amari Cooper list too? :)

    Please and Thank You! :)

  2. Robert I am pretty sure all his rookie cards are there.

  3. Great pics but I have a Strata die cut with D Carr in a red Jersey, can’t find it listed

  4. The Strata Derek Carr Die-Cut (Red Jersey) is from a Strata Insert Set called Strata Die-Cut. The Die-Cut with him in a white Jersey is from the set called Quarterback Die-Cut.

  5. I have one that’s not listed here; a Panini 2014 The National pink relic auto with NFL shield; I believe there to be 2, but wonder are there more – and in any case, can you find out how many there are? If you like, check my listing on eBay – just as reference.

  6. anyone know around what the 2016 panini national treasure #/5 collegiate jersey card would be worth
    or same year marcus allen /5 usc jersey
