New York Yankees Rookie Card Guide - 2012 MLB Postseason Edition

New York Yankees Rookie Card Guide – 2012 MLB Postseason Edition

The New York Yankees find themselves in familiar territory this October. They're in the postseason, yet again, chasing their 28th World Series Championship. Of all the teams in the 2012 MLB Playoffs, the Yankees are the most stacked, at least as hobby favorites go.

The Yankees are led by Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, Curtis Granderson, Robinson Cano and Mark Teixeira. However, should New York find themselves in the World Series, the feel-good story the could emerge is that of Ichiro Suzuki. The Japanese superstar has yet to win the World Series. He spent several years as the centerpiece of a horrible Seattle team. But a somewhat surprising deal to New York has led to renewed collector interest in the future Hall of Famer.

Below, you will find complete rookie card checklists of all of the Yankees' starters from the first game of their Division Series against the Baltimore Orioles. To shop for rookie cards, you can click on the player's name. We have also linked to eBay listings for key individual cards for your convenience.

Today, he continues to build sets, go after inserts with cool technologies, chase Montreal Expos and finish off his John Jaha master collection.
