The best Richarlison cards are worth a fair amount, especially after scoring three goals in four matches at the 2022 World Cup. Here’s a rundown with five top options to collect.
One of the success stories from the 2022 World Cup, Brazil forward Richarlison signed with Tottenham in the summer after stints with América Mineiro, Fluminese, Watford, and Everton respectively.
A tenacious player with an emphasis on pace and physicality, he can play out wide or down the middle.
We’ve taken the time to check out some of the best Richarlison cards released over the past few years, with a number of big hits making the list.
The Best Richarlison Cards
Richarlison is still only 25, despite playing in the Premier League since 2017. (He made his professional debut in Brazil back in 2015.)
5. 2019 Panini Prizm Premier League Kaboom! Richarlison #K-7 (eBay)
Let’s start with Richarlison’s Kaboom! insert from 2019-20 Panini Prizm Premier League. It features the player in an Everton kit, contesting for the ball with a foot raised.
Kaboom! inserts are proof that you don’t necessarily need a serial number or an autograph to make a card highly collectible. They typically come in at a rate of one per case, making the inserts some of the rarer options on the market.
4. 2019 Panini Prizm Premier League Color Blast Richarlison #13 (eBay)
2019 Prizm Premier League sets feature white Color Blast cards focusing on the top flight in England.
Another case hit, they’re hyper-rare, and will attract endless bids when a copy comes up at auction. The unique design has been well received by most collectors.
Be wary, as there are two Richarlison Color Blast cards. The latter was released in 2020-21 Prizm Premier League, and has a slightly different design to the one seen above.
3. 2018 Panini Donruss Richarlison #106 (eBay)
Heading back to 2018, the Panini Donruss set has an early option, featuring Richarlison on international duty with Brazil. Rather than the base card, we’d check out the version from the Optic subset, which is seen above. Unlike the inserts, it comes with a range of parallels which are serial numbered, and change the color of the outer border.
- Parallels: Holo, Green Velocity #/200, Aqua #/149, Purple Velocity #/125, Orange #/99, Red Velocity #/50, Black Velocity #/25, Gold #/10, Green #/5, Gold Vinyl 1/1
2. 2022 Panini Prizm World Cup Richarlison Auto #S-RI (eBay)
Richarlison’s 2022 Panini Prizm World Cup auto has been attracting a lot of attention at auction over the past few weeks. The only signed option to make the list, it’s worth noting that the autograph isn’t the most impressive. However, the brand is popular with fans, especially if you use 2014 or 2018 sets as a measuring stick. As well as this auto found in the Signatures set, there’s a second International Ink edition with a different design.
- Parallels: Blue Shimmer, Green Wave, Silver #/199, Gold #/10, Black 1/1
- Breakaway: Base, Gold #/10 or less, Black 1/1
- Choice: Base, Gold #/10, Black 1/1
1. 2022 Panini Prizm World Cup Richarlison #34 (eBay)
The 2022 Panini Prizm World Cup base card has also attracted a lot of attention in recent weeks. It features the player in a simple action shot, in the yellow and blue of Brazil. There’s a wide variety of Prizm parallels to chase, both numbered and unnumbered. (For example, check out the Gold version seen above, limited to 10 copies.)
Given the brand recognition and the fact Richarlison is likely to play up top for Brazil in the foreseeable future, this has to take the top spot on our list.
- Parallels: Green Ice, Green Wave, Hyper, Ice, Pink, Silver, White Sparkle, Red #/399, Blue #/299, Blue Wave #/199, Purple #/199, Purple Wave #/99, Red Mojo #/99, Blue Mojo #/75, Purple Mojo #/49, Orange #/25, Maroon #/22, Pink Mojo #/11, Gold #/10, Blue Shimmer #/5, Green #/5, Black 1/1, Gold Power 1/1
- Breakaway: Base, Red #/99, Blue #/49, Purple #/35, Gold #/10, Green #/5, Black 1/1
- Choice: Elephant, Red, Tiger Stripe, Zebra, Blue #/135, Nebula 1/1
Are there any downsides?
Aside from the 2019 Copa América, Richarlison hadn’t won much for club or country. He was awarded the Goal of the Tournament for the 2022 World Cup in Brazil’s win over Serbia, but it’s going to be tough to win serious trophies with Spurs, even with the talent they have. However, his club side does seem to be moving in the right direction.
Richarlison Cards: Final Thoughts
Richarlison is still finding his feet at Tottenham, but he’s a proven Premier League forward who makes a difference every time he’s on the field. He’s also a key player in a talented Brazil side. It bodes well for the future, especially as he has yet to hit his prime.
There are EPL-themed rare inserts, the 2022 World Cup cards, or older options like the 2018 Donruss release. The majority are valuable, and highly collectible.
