Bruno Fernandes has established himself as one of the best midfielders of his era in soccer, but his rookie card offering is limited.

In my opinion, his best rookie is his 2017-18 Topps Museum Collection UCL Autograph Relic card because of the premium features it has; I’ve covered that, and his other top rookies below.

The Best Bruno Fernandes Rookie Cards

2013-14 Panini Calciatori Aggiornamenti Bruno Fernandes #A100

Bruno Fernandes’ true rookie was released in 2013, as part of the Panini Calciatori sticker set, during his time with Udinese in the Italian Serie A. 

While the 2013-14 season wasn’t actually Bruno Fernandes’ rookie season, this was his first release in the soccer card hobby, and it’s actually a sticker.

According to PSA’s population report, there aren’t many of these graded, and very few achieve the highest grade, which isn’t unusual for a sticker.

Panini’s stickers are released to collectors with albums, so collectors can stick them into the album as they collect – That makes it harder to find them ‘unstuck’ and in good condition today.

In 2022, a PSA 10 graded copy sold for $492, which makes it one of his most valuable cards.

2014-15 Panini Calciatori Bruno Fernandes #515

2014-15 Panini Calciatori Bruno Fernandes #515

Another Bruno Fernandes sticker from the Panini Calciatori series, but for the 2014-15 season, a year after his true rookie card. 

Fernandes was still at Udinese at this point and still relatively unknown in the soccer world. It’s also another rare sticker of his, with only a handful of PSA-graded copies.

With it still being a very early Bruno Fernandes card, it still has value to collectors, so it’s one to keep an eye out for.

It’s a low-value Fernandes option for soccer collectors.

2017-18 Topps Chrome UEFA Champions League Bruno Fernandes #66

2017-18 Topps Chrome UEFA Champions League Bruno Fernandes Rookie Card

The first actual cards for Bruno Fernandes came in soccer products released in the 2017-18 season, so collectors who prefer cardboard stock over stickers had to wait a few years.

For me, this Topps Chrome UCL Fernandes rookie is one of his top soccer cards. It’s also his first Topps release.

The base card is low-value, but the 8 Refractor parallel options are where the bigger price tags are found.

The lowest-numbered parallels are among Fernandes’ most expensive soccer cards ever, including the 1-of-1 Superfractor parallel.

A copy of the Red Refractor parallel (/10) sold for $1.03k in 2024, graded PSA 9.

Fernandes features on 7 different higher-end cards from the 2017-18 UCL Museum Colleciton release, which include relic pieces and sticker autographs; The first is this Museum Autograph Relic card.

It would be my personal pick for a Fernandes rookie, because of the premium features it has, which his other rookie options do not – Signature, player-worn material and serial-numbering.

The base version is limited to 99 copies, and there are 4 lower-numbered parallel options; Sapphire (/75), Gold (/50), Ruby (/25) and the 1-of-1 Emerald, which are worth more.

What Is Bruno Fernandes’ True Rookie?

Bruno Fernandes’ first soccer card release, and therefore his true rookie, is the 2013-14 Panini Calciatori Aggiornamenti (#A100) sticker.
