Hello! If you’re looking for a list of the best Dak Prescott rookie football cards, then you’ve come to the right place.
Dak Prescott is one of the most promising young quarterbacks in the NFL today.
A fourth-round pick out of Mississippi State in 2016, Prescott quickly rose to prominence, leading the Dallas Cowboys to an NFC-best 13-3 record as a rookie.
In the process, he set a number of franchise records, including most passing yards and touchdowns by a rookie.
As a result, Dak Prescott rookie cards have become highly sought-after collectibles by Dallas Cowboy fans.
While some fans invest in these cards as a way to make money, others simply enjoy collecting them as a way to remember Dak's incredible debut season.
Whether you're purchasing your first Dak Prescott rookie card or looking to add to your collection, the experts here at Sports Card Sharks have spent countless hours sifting through each and every Dak Prescott rookie card on the market and have compiled a list of the ones we feel are the best of the best. Enjoy!
The rookie cards we select for our lists are judged based on 3 criteria:
- Design / Aesthetics
At Sports Card Sharks, we tend to go against the grain. We typically aren’t buying what everyone else is buying when everyone else is buying it, so if you’re moving with the masses this may not be the right list for you. Adios!
Our Founder is an 80's baby that grew up in the 90's collecting sports cards during the junk wax era.
While card collecting when on hiatus for a couple of decades, that passion was re-sparked in 2020 and we haven't looked back since.
We spend countless hours researching each player and constructing these posts to help you save time and energy so that you can focus on the fun part which is collecting!
Why We Love Dak Prescott
- He had one of the greatest rookie seasons of all time
- He seems to have recovered nicely from his leg injury
- He has an incredible receiving core around him with CeeDee Lamb and Amari Cooper. Not to mention a quality back in Zeke Elliott.
