Cam Newton

Date of Birth: 5/11/1989
Rookie Card Year: 2011
Investment Rating: 7.0


While the potential was always there, Cam Newton never quite seemed to live up to the hype surrounding his insane athletic ability. However, the 2015 season marked a notable shift in success for both Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers. Impressive play and lots of wins have Cam Newton rookie cards surging to the forefront of the hobby.

Cam Newton, the 2010 Heisman Trophy winner out of Auburn University, was the first overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft. As a First-Team All-American and two-time NCAA champion, Newton's leadership and athletic abilities made him a highly coveted player. Selected by the Carolina Panthers, Newton was immediately anointed the future of the franchise and given the starting quarterback position.

Never afraid of the spotlight, Newton immediately made an impression and was named the AP NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2011. Cam Newton cards and memorabilia values took off quickly as well. While Newton experienced the ups and downs faced by most NFL players, he appears to have turned the corner in 2015, leading the Panthers on a historic run and taking his cards along for the ride.

Official Cam Newton rookie cards are found in 2011 products. Also popular, pre-draft and college-themed cards are available from Sage, Upper Deck, Leaf or Press Pass.

With a decent amount of choices, collectors of all budgets can track down something in their price rage. Key options are noted below and and full checklist is found on the tab above. The best overall Cam Newton rookie cards are covered in our detailed top ten.

2011 Topps Triple Threads Cam Newton RC #110 Autographed Jersey #/99

Not nearly as appealing as the previous Cam Newton rookies, but equally as limited, Newton's Triple Thread rookie card contains a three-piece jersey swatch and autograph. The signature is on a reflective sticker.

2011 Topps Inception Cam Newton #135 Autographed #/50

A beautiful and artistic card, Inception features a large image of Newton and an on-card autograph. Some may debate its status as an official rookie card as it's part of the Green parallel set. That said, he doesn't appear in the base Rookie Autograph set.

  1. This article may be a little old, but I just recently got a box of 2011 Panini Timeless Treasures and pulled a Cam Newton Rookie Recruits NFL Shield Patch 1 of 1. Im debating whether to sell it or not, but I dont know anybody who collects Cam. Do you know anybody who would really be interested in this? Thanks

  2. Kevin P eBay would probably be your best bet.
