With F1 racing in his blood, Max Verstappen is already one of the best young superstars on the track. As a result, Max Verstappen cards are helping lead the way with collectors.
The son of a former F1 driver (Jos Verstappen), Max saw early success, becoming the youngest driver and winner in Formula One history.
In 2021, the Belgian-Dutch racer claimed his first F1 championship, besting Lewis Hamilton at the final race of the year to grab the title. However, the win for the Red Bull Racing-Honda driver was controversial.
Although this is not every card in existence, the guide below covers several key cards from his career. Many collectors view the 2020 Topps releases as his rookie cards even though there are a few earlier options.
Those wanting to see his popular cards available to buy right now can view the most-watched Max Verstappen card auctions.
