Overview

Jamaal Charles has emerged as one of the top running backs in the league as a member of the resurgent Kansas City Chiefs. Although he was relatively overlooked by collectors as a rookie, he has proven to be a dynamic and productive runner and Jamaal Charles cards and autographs are on the move.

Jamaal Charles played college football at the University of Texas. As a former track star, he combined impressive speed with a bruising running ability and great hands out of the backfield. After a terrific junior season, Charles elected to forgo his Senior year, and he entered the 2008 NFL Draft. Although he expected to hear his name in the second round, Jamaal Charles slipped to the third round, where he was taken by the Kansas City Chiefs. Multiple running backs were selected before Charles, including Darren McFadden, Chris Johnson, Matt Forte, and Ray Rice.

As the third string running back to start his career with the Chiefs, it took some time before he worked his way up the depth chart. Regardless, Charles produced impressive statistics throughout his early career. Once he was finally used as the true starter, Jamaal Charles has consistently produced All-Pro numbers. Despite losing nearly the entire 2011 season to an ACL injury, Charles rebounded nicely and looks to be back to form in time for his prime years. Running backs generally begin their decline around 30, so Charles still has at least a few more great seasons left, barring any severe injuries. The next five years will dictate if he is simply an above average back or something much more. If he can sustain his production and help the Chiefs stay competitive, the sky is the limit.

With over 35 rookie options, collectors have plenty of Jamaal Charles cards to pick from, across all budgets. The top three Jamaal Charles rookie cards can be seen below and the full checklist is listed on the next tab.

Top Jamaal Charles Cards

2008 Exquisite Jamaal Charles RC #148 Autographed Jersey #/199

With a detailed foil design, on-card signature, jersey patch, and limited print run, this card is tough to beat. The only negative might be the limited signing area, but this is easily one of the top Jamaal Charles cards available from his rookie season.

2008 Playoff National Treasures Jamaal Charles RC #109 Autographed Jersey #/99

Similar to the Exquisite card, this National Treasures Jamaal Charles rookie card includes many of the main things that collectors look for in a card. Although the signing area is larger and the print run is smaller, the small image of Charles is disappointing.

2008 SP Authentic Jamaal Charles RC #293 Autographed Jersey #/999

Perhaps one of the best values among early Jamaal Charles cards, the SP Authentic rookie includes the same attributes as the first two cards, but the higher print run of 999 keeps prices lower and makes the card easier to track down.
