Cee Dee Lamb Rookie Cards: Our Top Choices So Far
2020 Panini Elements (Buy this Cee Dee Lamb rookie card on eBay)
This is a set that was featured in our Clyde Edwards-Helaire rookie card review. Just a great all-around set that gets its name from the periodic table of elements. Now that may sound dorky, but take one look at the cards and you’ll change your mind. One card that we like is the Cobalt, which is one of the harder to come by “elements” in this set. If you’re looking for a more common (and thus less expensive) element seek out the Golds. Regardless of the metal you go with, you can’t really go wrong here.
2020 Panini Certified (Want it? Find it on eBay!)
Here you can choose from the base rookie card or the more costly “Freshmen Fabric”. If you go with the fabric, you can choose from an Orange (349), Red (249), Blue (99), Teal (50), or Gold (25). Looking to drain the ole’ PayPal account? Take things up a notch and grab one of the “Etch” variations (all colors have less than 25 cards).

One of the top sets for NFL rookie cards. The more common Cee Dee Lamb rookie cards are the Jersey Number, Season Stat Line, Aqueous Test, Canvas, and Red Press Proof parrells.

A new set that debuted in 2019, the Panini Black is quickly becoming a favorite among many collectors (us included). There’s the base rookie set and there are the souped-up Rookie Patch Autographs. Once again, it’s all about your budget. Silver, Copper, Emerald, and Gold parrels are some of the best options when it comes to Cee Dee.
2020 Leaf Metal Draft (Buy it on eBay)
We’re not sure why this set seems to be one of the outcasts in terms of the NFL rookie card market.

So if you’re looking for some cool Cee Dee Lamb rookie cards that won’t break the bank, this is your set. Look for the Touchdown Kings variation!
