Albert Pujols Baseball Cards, Rookie Card Checklist, Autograph Guide

Overview

At one point in time, Albert Pujols was at the top of the popularity list when it comes to sports cards and collectibles. With a panache for clutch-hitting in addition to his ability to hit for power, Pujols will always be a Cardinal in the hearts and minds of St. Louis fans after leading his team to a World Series title in 2011.

Signed pieces of memorabilia, including balls, bats and jerseys command top-dollar on the secondary market, a testament to his continued popularity amongst fans and collectors alike. Items signed as a member of the Cardinals do carry a slight premium.

All of Albert Pujols' rookie cards hail from 2001 with his autographed 2001 Bowman Chrome #340 being the most coveted. Some of his other rookie cards include pieces of game used bat and game worn jersey swatches. Fortunately for those without deep pockets, Pujols has several other rookie cards to choose from (42 in total) at varying prices.

2001 Bowman Chrome Albert Pujols (/500)

The 2001 Bowman Chrome Albert Pujols rookie card features an on-card autograph and is limited to only 500 copies.  Graded versions have sold for five figures. It's a card that is considered a must have for the die-hard Pujols collector. It's also worth noting that the card was a redemption, which means that any that might be still lurking in packs have long since expired. Fortunately for those without deep pockets, he has several other rookie cards to choose from at varying prices.

With just 330 copies produced, this is Pujols' most limited autographed rookie card. Unfortunately, the autograph is in the form of a sticker label, which detracts from its overall aesthetic value. However, this doesn't take away from the card's ability to sell for several hundred dollars.
