Top Roger Staubach Football Cards for All Budgets

Top Roger Staubach Football Cards for All Budgets

A favorite of Cowboys fans and one of the top quarterbacks of the 1970s, Roger Staubach has remained firmly on the collecting radar. Centered around his vintage releases and modern autographed cards, Roger Staubach cards are very popular with collectors.

While he was drafted after his college career with the U.S. Naval Academy in 1964, Roger Staubach did not actually start playing in the NFL until 1969 due to his military obligations. Over his 11 seasons with the Cowboys, Staubach led the team to four Super Bowl appearances and two titles. He was also named the Super Bowl VI MVP and was selected to six Pro Bowls.

Although there are many Roger Staubach cards available, collectors gravitate toward his vintage Topps releases as well as his signed cards from more recent products. The following guide highlights the top Roger Staubach cards, starting with all his main releases from the 1970s.

1972 Topps Roger Staubach RC #200

One of the most iconic football rookies of all-time, the 1972 Topps card for Roger Staubach is actually very similar to other Topps cards for Staubach that were released during the 1970s. Low grades and ungraded versions start around $20, but high grades are tough to locate as the card is notorious for centering issues. A PSA 9 sold for $4,226 in February of 2015.

1973 Topps Roger Staubach #475

The sophomore card for Roger Staubach sees the pink frame replaced by a pink and orange ribbon. 1973 Topps continues the trend of non-game images for Roger Staubach. The card is a much more affordable option for collectors but high grades can still reach into the hundreds.

1974 Topps Roger Staubach #500

Easy to remember based on the goalposts in the card design, 1974 Topps is particularly susceptible to frayed edges. 1974 was also the start of the green and pink combo for Roger Staubach and other Cowboys cards from Topps that would continue for several seasons.

1975 Topps Roger Staubach #145

Showcasing a very similar image to 1974 Topps, down to the hairstyle and band-aid, 1975 Topps goes very simple with this Roger Staubach card. The clean look makes it one of the more popular designs of the 1970s.

1976 Topps Roger Staubach #395

The pink and green makes its final appearance in 1976 Topps, but it is easy to get distracted by the large football and bubble text on this Roger Staubach card. However, the card design has more personality than many of the other 1970s releases for Staubach.

1977 Topps Roger Staubach #45

Notable for several reasons, the most obvious thing about the 1977 Topps card for Roger Staubach is the action image. While it is odd to see Staubach without the iconic star on his helmet, the image variety is a refreshing change. 1977 is also important for fans and collectors because it is the season that Staubach won his second Super Bowl with the Cowboys.

1978 Topps Roger Staubach #290

Reverting back to the layout from the majority of the decade, 1978 Topps goes with a posed shot of Roger Staubach that includes some unfortunate background items.

1979 Topps Roger Staubach #400

The final card from Roger Staubach's active career, it may be his best overall vintage image. Contrary to the posed shots without helmets, the 1979 Topps feels more like an in-game image since he is wearing his helmet, but you can still get a good look at him. In addition to the normal gray stock, there is limited cream option with a thinner stock.

1997 Upper Deck Legends Autographs Roger Staubach #AL-11

Part of one of the top autograph sets in football collecting, 1997 Upper Deck Legends offers collectors an on-card signature for Roger Staubach that remains popular and does not surface often. Since the base cards have identical fronts, make sure the card back includes the #AL- prefix if you are planning to add one to your collection.
