Rookie Card Year: 1977
Investment Rating: 6.5


Overview

Andre Dawson cards and and autographed memorabilia are popular on several fronts. He's one of the greatest, if not the greatestMontreal Expo of all-time. He was the Rookie of the Year in 1977 en route to a Hall of Fame resumé that boasts 438 Home Runs and 1,591 RBI. Before knee injuries hurt his mobility, Dawson also possessed decent speed, making him the consummate five-tool player.

Andre Dawson has just one rookie card. It hails from the 1977 Topps Baseball set which he shares with three other players, none of whom can be compared to Dawson in terms of talent and on-field accomplishments. Dawson's induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2010 caused the card to get a bump in value that has been sustained, particularly in high-grade condition.

Dawson's first certified autograph card can be found in the 1996 Leaf Signature Series Autographs set. Issued at a time when print runs far exceeded what the hobby sees today, Dawson's base autograph has a print run of 3,500 copies. As if that wasn't enough, he also has a Silver parallel, with another 1,000 copies and a Gold parallel with an additional 500 copies. Since then, Dawson has been a regular signer in many sets. As far as Hall of Famers go, his autograph is one of the easiest to find on cards.

Dawson's first memorabilia cards came in 2001 and he had over 20 of them produced by every major card maker at the time. Among them were a pair of autographed memorabilia cards from Fleer.

Andre Dawson spent several years in coaching prior to his retirement and didn't immediately jump on the national autograph circuit. However, he has always been a fairly reliable in-person signer. In the last few years, he has participated in several national signing events with items from the teams he spent the most time with, the Chicago Cubs and Montreal Expos, being equally popular.

  3. The "d" contains a long fish-hook like tail.
  4. The "r" like the "n" looks like an "l" or "i" and the "e" is small and the loop is closed.
  5. The last name contains a swoop below the horizontal coming off the smallish sized "D" and a flairing swoop off the final letter.
  6. The remaining letters can be discerned, except for the "o" which is absent.
