Todd Gurley Rookie Cards Guide and Checklist - Updated

Todd Gurley Rookie Cards Guide and Checklist – Updated

An explosive young running back with plenty of name recognition, Todd Gurley has returned from a serious ACL tear in college to emerge as one of the top running backs in the NFL. Already one of the key collecting options from the 2015 draft class, Todd Gurley rookie cards are primed for some big growth if he remains healthy.

A strong college career at the University of Georgia ended on a sour note for Todd Gurley as he was suspended for NCAA violations and then tore his ACL. While the injury likely softened his interest from NFL teams slightly, Gurley only dropped to tenth overall where he selected by the St. Louis Rams in 2015.

Although the team started him off slowly in his rookie year, it only took a few games before he assumed the starting spot and began putting up big numbers. As a result, Gurley was named the NFL Rookie of the Month for October. He finished the year with ten touchdowns, over 1,100 rushing yards and a Pro Bowl invite and was later awarded the 2016 AP Offensive Rookie of the Year.

While his official rookie cards were not issued until 2015, the earliest Todd Gurley cards came from Upper Deck in 2012 thanks to his participation with USA Football. The following list includes all the Todd Gurley rookie cards from 2015 NFL products and more will be added as the season progresses. While popular, the many inserts for Gurley are not shown. Below the rookie cards, Gurley's key college and pre-rookie cards are highlighted.

2015 Bowman Todd Gurley RC #28

The basic look and airbrushed image do this early Todd Gurley rookie card no favors. There are much better budget options than this forgettable card.

2015 Bowman Todd Gurley RC #28

2015 Donruss Rated Rookie Todd Gurley RC #206

Tapping into the nostalgia for the Rated Rookie brand, this simple rookie from Donruss is given a little personality with a foil nameplate. A wrapper redemption exclusive offers a college version with a holofoil finish.

2015 Donruss Rated Rookie Todd Gurley RC #206

2015 Donruss Signature Series Todd Gurley RC #494 Autographed Jersey

The all-autograph set is very deep, meaning that the unnumbered rookie autographs for Gurley are very tough to track down. Although the cluttered design and sticker autograph does it no favors, the overall rarity should help it maintain a strong value with collectors.

2015 Panini Certified Todd Gurley RC #239 Autographed Jersey #/199

Featuring a loud design, the Panini Certified rookie for Todd Gurley adds a jumbo patch and sticker autograph to make a solid mid-level option. The moderate print run keeps the card in decent supply.

2015 Panini Contenders Rookie Ticket Todd Gurley RC #238 Autograph - Redemption

One of the top Todd Gurley rookie options, the 2015 Panini Contenders Rookie Ticket was originally issued as a redemption. There are two versions of this card that were signed at the 2016 NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.

2015 Panini Clear Vision Todd Gurley RC #110

All things considered, the Clear Vision card is a pretty nice rookie card for Gurley in the same vein as Topps High Tek. The acetate design makes it stand out from the many base rookies and there is also a variation, shown on the right, that includes a different image and background design.

2015 Panini Crown Royale Todd Gurley RC #238 Autographed Jersey - Redemption

Another redemption for Gurley, the base jersey relic version was available from the start. However, collectors had to wait on the on-card version. The Silhouettes design has become a popular option in the hobby making this a key choice for Gurley collectors.

2015 Panini Gridiron Kings Todd Gurley RC #102

The frame and artistic image give the Tood Gurley Gridiron Kings rookie a distinct look. Although the price tag is quite cheap, this is a great choice for collectors that are looking for something a little different. There are several limited parallels that switch the frame color and apply rarity.

2015 Panini Gridiron Kings Todd Gurley RC #102

2015 Panini Immaculate Collection Todd Gurley RC #160 Autographed Jersey #/99

One of the key premium rookie cards for Gurley, Immaculate Collection offers everything collectors look for in a high-end RC. The quality design, on-card autograph, low print run and nice patch place it in a special class.

2015 Panini Playbook Rookie Booklet Todd Gurley RC #70 #/199

As the name indicates, Playbook is all about the booklet cards. Todd Gurley has several options in the main set, including base Rookie Booklets, jumbo relic versions and signed versions.

2015 Panini Prestige Todd Gurley RC #291

An NFL card with a college image is not the preferred option for most, but this Prestige rookie is still better than a generic option where the logos have been scrubbed. Prestige also included the NFL jersey version as a variation for Gurley.

2015 Prestige Football Base RC 291 Todd Gurley 2015 Prestige Football Variation RC 291 Todd Gurley

2015 Panini Prizm Todd Gurley RC #291

Something about the Rams' colors and the large silver frame really makes this Todd Gurley card pop. A solid budget option, there is also a more-limited variation, that features a shot of Gurley without his helmet.

2015 Panini Prizm Football Base Todd Gurley RC 2015 Panini Prizm Football Variation Todd Gurley

2015 Panini Rookies & Stars Todd Gurley RC #130

While the design is little overwhelming, the Target-exclusive R&S rookie for Todd Gurley is a little more accessible for casual collectors who don't have local card shop. The shiny Crusade inserts are another popular option in the release.

2015 Panini Rookies & Stars Todd Gurley RC #130

2015 Panini Spectra Todd Gurley RC #121 #/99, #166 Autographed Jersey #/75

All limited with a Refractor-like finish, Spectra features two base rookies for Todd Gurley, each with a different image. There is also an autographed patch card that is quite similar to his Certified rookie card but decidedly more rare.

2015 Panini Spectra Todd Gurley RC Autographed Jersey

2015 Score Todd Gurley RC #386

Score is well known as a low-end option so it is hard to expect much from this base rookie. Basically, if you are okay with college images, this is a suitable rookie, but most are looking for his NFL jersey cards.

2015 Score Todd Gurley RC #386

2015 Topps Todd Gurley RC #422

Another budget choice, the flagship Topps rookie for Gurley will always be among his most plentiful. Collectors looking for something a bit more limited can seek out the image variation where he is preparing to catch the ball.

2015 Topps Football Base RC Todd Gurley2015 Topps Football RC Variation Gurley

2015 Topps Chrome Todd Gurley RC #110

2015 Topps Football 2.0, most collectors know that Chrome simply adds a quality finish to the flagship card. Also like the base set, 2015 Topps Chrome features a limited image variation.

2015 Topps Chrome Base Todd Gurley RC2015 Topps Chrome Variation RC Todd Gurley

2015 Topps Chrome Mini Todd Gurley RC #110

If you like Topps Chrome and are looking for size variety, the 2015 Topps Chrome Mini for Todd Gurley might be for you. While gimmicky and exactly the same as the regular version, minus the smaller dimensions, it does offer another inexpensive base card with a good amount of parallels to chase.

2015 Topps Chrome Base Todd Gurley RC

2015 Topps Finest Todd Gurley RC #85

Featuring a heavy dose of silver, the hypnotic look of the 2015 Topps Finest rookie for Todd Gurley might not put all collectors in a trance. Still, the brand has good following and the design does stand out.

2015 Topps Finest Football Base RC Gurley

2015 Topps Fire Todd Gurley RC #16

Like many of the Todd Gurley rookie cards, Fire replaces the background of the image with computer-generated haze. It is oddly appealing and those that like the designs in Valor or Inception should appreciate the Fire look as well.

2015 Topps Fire Football Todd Gurley RC

2015 Topps Heritage Todd Gurley RC #93

Part of a retail-exclusive release, Topps Heritage taps into the nostalgia factor with a simple base card for Todd Gurley.

2015 Topps Heritage Todd Gurley RC #93

2015 Topps High Tek Todd Gurley RC #108

One of the more complex products of the year, High Tek offers several base patterns for Gurley and mutiple parallels to chase. His signed cards feature on-card autographs but were issued in boxes as redemptions. There are also special promo versions that were found at the 2015 NSCC.

2015 Topps Inception Todd Gurley #RA-5 Autograph

One of the most popular early-season options for Todd Gurley, Inception features an on-card autograph and appealing design. While many of the players have a base version, Gurley is among the suspected short prints and his most common card appears to be a parallel numbered to 75. Also, a very limited variation can be found that swaps the image and only has ten copies.

2015 Topps Museum Collection Todd Gurley RC #54

Simple and regal at the same time, Museum Collection offers a quality Todd Gurley rookie card that can still be found for very little.

2015 Topps Museum Collection Todd Gurley RC #54

2015 Topps Platinum Todd Gurley RC #103

Basically Chrome with little more personality, Topps Platinum is quality base option with a budget price tag. Like Chrome, there are plenty of parallels to chase.

2015 Topps Platinum Todd Gurley RC #103

2015 Topps Triple Threads Todd Gurley RC #106,153 Autographed Jersey #/99

Even with two different versions, given each is limited to just 99 copies, the Triple Threads rookie cards for Gurley will not be the easiest to locate. Featuring a relic trio and sticker autographs, the look is a little busy but the overall rarity will help values.

2015 Topps Triple Threads Todd Gurley RC Autographed Jersey

2015 Topps Valor Todd Gurley RC #181

With a design that is somewhat similar to Inception, Valor is another Todd Gurley card that is is inexpensive but still a little different than a traditional base card.

2014 Exquisite Collection Draft Picks Todd Gurley #ER-TG #/125

Classic and refined, the Draft Picks insert in 2014 Exquisite Collection included Gurley along with many other top 2015 rookies. The limited print run and the fact that it might be the last Exquisite football set made for a while makes it an appealing pre-rookie choice.

Leaf has multiple autographs for Todd Gurley that are found in their 2015 products, but Trinity stands supreme thanks to the high-end feel and brand recognition. On-card signatures further enhance the cards.

2015 Panini National Treasures Collegiate Todd Gurley #337 Autographed Patch #/99 - Redemption

Similarly, National Treasures Collegiate also takes a premium brand back to school. This Gurley card was originally issued as a redemption so collectors will have to wait to enjoy it. However, when live, it should rival any other college-themed card for top billing.

2015 Panini Prizm Draft Picks Todd Gurley #146
