Conor McGregor (7/14/1988) is one of the best, if not the best, MMA the UFC has ever seen. Standing 5 ft 9 in and weighing 155 lbs, this guy is a firecracker with brick for hands.


He made his UFC debut on 4/6/2013, knocking the snot out of Marcus Brimage at UFC on Fuel TV: Mousasi vs. Latifi. The knockout was so devasting McGregor ended up winning the first-ever “Knockout of the Night” award, and the legend of Conor McGregor was born.

Best Conor McGregor Rookie Cards

Let’s look at the best Conor McGregor RC for investment purposes.


2013 Conor McGregor Topps UFC Bloodlines RC #FACM


Our favorite McGregor rookie card in terms of looks. Numbered #FACM the card shows a younger Conor destroying some bum face with a sick, broken rock backdrop.

And to top it off, a Conor McGregor Auto is placed at the bottom of the card. Above the auto reads “Conor McGregor Ireland”… screaming but at high grades.


2017 Conor McGregor Topps UFC Chrome Refractor RC #97


Another great-looking Conor McGregor rookie card that focuses on that shredded, tatted body. This was in his career’s prime when he knocked these chumps out in the first minute of the match.

Conor McGregor RCs are a screaming long-term buy but somewhat average in the short term… buying now is smart

Numbered #97 the UFC logo is placed in the top right corner, and his name is towards the center bottom. The only negative about this card is no auto but still a great card.

Investment Outlook

Conor McGregor will go down in history as one of the best MMA fighters of all time and one of the most popular (famous in terms of lots of people liking him and lots of people hating him, similar to LeBron James.).

The short-term ROI on McGregor RC shouldn’t be all that great and could decrease in the concise term.

Long-term however, they are a great buy as he is one of the MMA GOATS. Buy a Conor McGregor rookie card now, and you will look like a genius 20 years from now (especially once these younger pups have real jobs and are making money).
