He was named the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year in his first season and made the Pro Bowl in his first three years with the Giants.
Beckham Jr. has made a name for himself as one of the most talented players in the league, even if the production doesn’t always match up. His highlight reel is among the best in the league, as he uses his insane athleticism to make tough catches.
Here are the top 3 Odell Beckham Jr. Rookie Cards for investment purposes.
2014 Odell Beckham Jr. Panini Contenders Rookie Card #277 (buy on eBay)
The most popular Odell Beckham card at auction as of right now, there is a trio of variations which are as follows:
- Base: ball in the left hand
- Variation I: two hands on the ball
- Variation II: ball in the right hand
The reverse doesn’t feature a quote, but it does have a guarantee for the on-card signature.
2014 Odell Beckham Bowman Chrome Rookie Card #190 (buy on eBay)
The 2014 Bowman Chrome comes with a range of different editions which bump the price up;
Rookie Refractor Autographs, Blue (#/199), Bubbles (#/99), Gold (#/50), Red (#/25), X-Fractor (#/10), Prism (#/5), Printing Plates and Superfractors (1/1)
The reverse quote reads;
“There are abundant similarities between Beckham and Mike Wallace of the Dolphins, including the fact that both hail from New Orleans. The good-sized athletes rank among the fastest receivers in the NFL, and each can make catches far down the field and escape after the catch.”
2014 Odell Beckham Bowman Sterling RC #18 (buy on eBay)
The 2014 Bowman Sterling is the most affordable card on the list, with a PSA 10 valued at roughly $50. The reverse has a Bowman Reflection, which notes;
“Odell credits his extensive soccer background for giving him the footwork and the stamina required for “American football”. When he was 13, a soccer coach tried to get him on a U.S. junior national team, but Beckham preferred to focus on the gridiron, where he became one of the country’s top recruits”.
There were so many different Odell Beckham Jr. rookie cards made that it was challenging to limit the list to just three. This one mentioned below wasn’t good enough to make our top three, but it’s still a great card that investors will want to look at.

Beckham’s talent is indisputable, but his temperament is slightly unpredictable. His switch to the Browns shocked the sports world, but he hasn’t lived up to his early promise for his current team.
We feel Baker and Odell are not winning playoff games anytime soon, and until they prove us wrong, we are not buying (in fact, we think Baker will be benched at some point this year and will become a backup and may even be out of football in a few years).
