Teddy Bridgewater Rookie Card

Buy Teddy Bridgewater Rookie Cards on eBay

Teddy Bridgewater was drafted by the Minnesota Vikings as a first-round 32nd overall pick in 2014 and it almost immediately started to look like a good pick.

Making the most of a Matt Cassel injury, Bridgewater was given his chance as the Vikings starting QB and seized it with both hands.

Teddy Bridgewater Rookie Year Stats: 12 games | 2919 passing yards | 14 TD passes | 54.4 QBR

Bridgewater kept his starting spot for the 2015 season and made his first Pro Bowl that year. But in 2016 he suffered a serious knee injury which kept him out for almost two full seasons, at the end of which he was released by the Vikings.

Different versions or parallels of this card are accessible to all collectors, with the base card being relatively cheap but the limited run parallels such as the rookie patch autograph can be very expensive.

2014 Terry Bridgewater SP Authentic rookie card

This horizontally printed card is a true beauty, it features Bridgewater on the left with the ball in hand and the game-worn patch on the left, and his autograph below this.

The only downside is that the uniform Bridgewater is wearing, and the patch, are both from his college days and not the Vikings.

The card had a print run of 150 so can get quite expensive, although not ridiculously so, when found in mint condition.
