Bob Gibson Cards, Rookie Card and Autographed Memorabilia Guide

Rookie Card Year: 1959
Investment Rating: 8.0


Overview

One of the most dominant pitchers of baseball's Golden Age, Bob Gibson cards and autographed memorabilia are still very popular. His on-field accomplishments make him a worthy Hall of Famer. Gibson was an All-Star and Gold Glove winner nine-times. He also won the Cy Young Award two-times. He led the St. Louis Cardinals to two World Series Championships where he was the MVP of each.

The Bob Gibson rookie card comes from the 1959 Topps Baseball set. He has a team-issued card by the Omaha Cardinals from 1958 that is also very collectible. Professionally graded versions of both cards in top condition can sell for a substantial premium.

Gibson's early autographed cards include two food issues, 1994 Nabisco and 1995 Tombstone. His first certified autograph from a major trading card manufacturer is in 1997 Donruss Signatures Series Baseball and is serial numbered to 2,000.

In 2000, both Fleer and Upper Deck produced Gibson's first game used memorabilia cards. Fleer paid tribute to him as a member of the 3,000 Strikeouts Club with a series of five different memorabilia cards. They are numbered between 25 and 825. They include single swatches of memorabilia as well as combinations that include game worn jerseys, hats, and bats.

Bob Gibson's autographed memorabilia sees strong demand to this day. Despite being long retired from the game, his dominant presence on the mound has been an enduring memory to those who had the fortune to watch him play. He has appeared at numerous organized signing events and the value of his signed items has remained strong due to a healthy balance between supply and demand.
