Among the top names in the soccer/football collecting world, the market for Kylian Mbappe cards continues to grow based on the stellar play of the young superstar.
His senior career began with AS Monaco FC, but it was his move to Paris Saint-Germain and also his national team play for France that really put him on the collecting radar.
If you are looking for Kylian Mbappe rookie cards, basically every card of his from 2016 and 2017 can make that claim even though there are no official rookies. Many view his 2018 releases as rookies also.
While his card options continue to grow via a surge in new sets, the big hobby void is the lack of mainstream Mbappe autographs. Finally, in 2022, both Topps and Panini issued Kylian Mbappe autographs, with Panini ultimately locking down the exclusive.
By no means is this an exhaustive list of all the Kylian Mbappe cards out there. It focuses on some of the key cards from early in his career.
