Julio Jones Cards and Autograph Memorabilia Guide

Julio Jones

Date of Birth: 2/3/1989
Rookie Card Year: 2011
Investment Rating: 7.0


Overview

Julio Jones was one of the best overall athletes and top receivers in the 2011 NFL Draft. His obvious talent, combined with his college success at Alabama, has continued into his NFL career and made Julio Jones cards a hot commodity among collectors. Although injuries are a valid concern, Jones has proven to be among the NFL's elite wide receivers when healthy. Collectors should have few reservations about investing in this dynamic young player.

Following a stellar career at the University of Alabama, Julio Jones was the sixth overall pick by the Atlanta Falcons in 2011. Strong seasons in 2012 and 2014 paved the way for his ascension to the top of the receiving world and put him squarely on the collecting radar.

Although wide receivers don't generally enjoy the same hobby interest as quarterbacks or running backs, Julio Jones cards have long-term potential. Still young, Jones should enjoy a very productive career and remain a top WR for several years. His rookie cards are found in 2011 products and there are plenty of choices for collectors.

A few key Julio Jones rookie cards are noted below and his full rookie card checklist can be seen by using the tab above.
