CSG Certifies Throwback Cards Featuring Rookie Jacksonville Jaguars Quarterback
Posted on 6/23/2021
Recently, the experts at Certified Sports Guaranty® (CSG™) graded several highly coveted 2021 Trevor Lawrence football cards. The X Trevor Lawrence cards represent Topps’ first bid at a player-curated set for football. Sold directly to collectors, the set featured 50 cards, including 30 cards dedicated to classic Topps designs of the past. The remaining 20 cards showcase the artwork of Lawrence's brother and sister-in-law.
Trevor Lawrence went undefeated as a freshman at Clemson University, concluding with a victory in the 2019 National Championship Game. He set the Clemson record for career quarterback wins and was the first quarterback ever to win three ACC Championship games. In April 2021, he was the overall No. 1 pick in the NFL Draft, joining the Jacksonville Jaguars.
