A CeeDee Lamb Rookie Card Review

He was the third receiver taken in a draft that had plenty of potentially good ones. Put some viral clips of big plays together with a franchise that has a huge fan base and plenty of outside interest and there isn’t much question that CeeDee Lamb rookie cards are worth watching.

A first round pick with the potential to enjoy a long career in the NFL, his cards still have plenty of potential for growth.

CeeDee Data

Cedarian “CeeDee” Lamb was born in a small town in Louisiana and lived in New Orleans until he and his family were victims of Hurricane Katrina and its horrific effects in 2005. He later starred John and Randolph Foster High School in Richmond, Texas as a wide out.

After a standout senior high school season which included nearly 100 receptions for over 2,000 yards and 33 touchdowns, he received various high school accolades and was rated a four-star recruit by most major recruiting outlets around the country. He received offers from many of the top schools in the nation including the University of Alabama and University of Texas. He committed to the University of Oklahoma and began his college career there in 2017, where he tied and broke a number of freshman school records catching passes from Heisman trophy winner Baker Mayfield.

As a sophomore the Sooners didn’t miss a beat as Lamb was catching passes from the next Heisman trophy winner in transcendent quarterback Kyler Murray.

As a senior, Lamb was named first Team All American after a season in which he hauled in 62 passes for over 1,300 yards. He was a finalist for the Biletnikoff Award as the nation’s best receiver.

Lamb skipped his senior season and entered the NFL Draft, being chosen 17th overall by the Dallas Cowboys.

The rookie sensation finished the season with 69 catches for just shy of 1,000 yards and 5 scores–numbers he accumulated largely by catching passes from backup quarterbacks.  Lamb is on several lists of potential breakout stars.

Below is a list of some CeeDee Lamb rookie card picks in three different pricing and significance tiers, but with 44 true RCs in the database, there are plenty to choose from.  At the bottom of the page, you can see a live list of the most watched auctions for his cards on eBay. 

Rookie Sensation Tier

1. 2020 Panini National Treasures #164 CeeDee Lamb JSY AU RC– #/99

With just 99 copies in existence of this ultra-premium product and at the price point it sits at and also factoring in that cards from NT set the tone worldwide for top tier rookie card pricing, this one sits stop the list of CeeDee RCs. The nice, large multicolored swatch coupled with the on card auto (as lackluster as his autograph may be) still make this card stand out above all the rest of the rooks.

Sales have been in the $400-$1,000 range over the last few months.

2. 2020 Immaculate Collection #114 CeeDee Lamb JSY AU RC EXCH

A redemption card that was worth the wait.  Again, just a mere 99 pieces exist here. Immaculate is always a very nice looking product and this offering is no different. Their signature flowing design offers an on card autograph and a piece of premium memorabilia coupled with a lot of ornate gold bordering and a nice thick card stock. This is just about as good as it gets for Lamb Lovers and prices have been well within reach of most collectors.

3. 2020 Panini Elements #84 CeeDee Lamb/79 RC

This product always seems to have a middle school biology class feel which is intended to a degree. The horizontal metallic gold look is not new but it’s pulled off pretty well by Elements. And with the scarcity of a sub 100 card count as a true rookie, this is definitely one to snag when they make an appearance in public.  At current prices, it’s hard to pass up.

All American Tier

1.2020 Panini Contenders #107A CeeDee Lamb AU RC/250*

Panini Contenders autographed rookie cards will always be a staple in the hobby as long as they are being produced. The classic rookie ticket is in play here again coupled with CeeDee’s Auto and a relatively low numbering makes this card fall just outside of the top tier.

2. 2020 Panini Flawless #107 CeeDee Lamb RC

The Flawless offering is another option for a high-end Lamb rookie. Number to a microscopic 20 copies, you might have to run a lot of different routes to find one. Also add into the mix there are rubies and diamonds and other precious metals on a card this really takes it to another level.

3. 2020 Panini Impeccable #106 CeeDee Lamb HEL PAT AU RC

This might be the prettiest card of the bunch. It may sound crazy to put a piece of a helmet on a card but Impeccable seems to pull it off each and every year. This isn’t just any helmet. It’s the classic silver and blue America’s Team in the Dallas Cowboys. That coupled with the jersey and an autograph, these cards are really a sight to be seen in person. With just 75 copies in existence, they aren’t easy to come by either but selling prices have been more than reasonable.

Simple Route Tier

1. 2020 Panini Prizm #334A CeeDee Lamb RC

Prizm has become a flagship brand across all major sports. It’s hard to overstate the significance and importance of a player’s Prizm rookie and all the colorful parallels that come along with it. The base rookie card of the new #88 can be found at the lowest level of this list but if you’re looking for more colorful options they are plentiful (and more expensive).

Silver Prizms have become iconic in the hobby and there are plenty of autographed copies to go around, too.

2. 2020 Panini Mosaic #207 CeeDee Lamb RC

Mosaic is relatively new on the block and they’ve been trying to take up the same hobby space that you might find Prizm and Select residing in. Its a great offering at this price point. This is a go-to lower end card for someone looking to play the penny stock game.  The card has the now classic shiny silver backdrop with a image of Lamb on the lamb.

3. 2020 Select #57- CeeDee Lamb RC

 You might find yourself lost by the different seating arrangement parallels but they are worth the hunt and once you get to your seat you’ll be happy with the view. This is another product that offers various colors, die cuts and the aforementioned stadium levels. It can be had for the price of an adult beverage at an NFL game.
