Erling Haaland continues to play well beyond his years and the hobby has certainly taken notice of the star striker and, of course, the notable Erling Haaland rookie cards.
After getting his start in Norway with Bryne, he moved to Molde for a few years and then made the jump to the Austrian club FC Red Bull Salzburg. Near the end of 2019, Erling Haaland signed with German Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund. While BVB was the site of his mainstream breakout in the UEFA Champions League, he has surged on the path to superstardom thanks to his performances for Manchester City in the Premier League.
After a slower start, new Erling Haaland cards arrive more frequently, especially from Topps' Bundesliga sets and the print-to-order Topps Now series. Notable stickers are featured alongside traditional cards.
