Bruce Sutter Cards, Rookie Card and Autographed Memorabilia Guide

Bruce Sutter

Date of Birth: 1/8/1953
Rookie Card Year: 1977
Investment Rating: 5.5


Overview

Bruce Sutter was one of the most dominant relief pitchers of his era. Sutter is a six-time All-Star, a World Series Champion and a Cy Young Award winner. He spent an equal amount of time playing for the Chicago Cubs, St. Louis Cardinals and Atlanta Braves during his 12-year career. Extremely affordable, one could make the case that Bruce Sutter cards and memorabilia are undervalued. It's also a sign of how relievers are largely overlooked.

Bruce Sutter's rookie card is from the 1977 Topps Baseball set. He also has two additional regional issues, 1976 Chicago Tribune and 1977 Jewel Grocery.

Sutter's first autographed card is part of 2000 Fleer Greats of the Game. It features an on-card signature. The exact print run is unknown and it lacks any serial numbering.

His first memorabilia card was not released until 2004 Upper Deck Ultimate Collection. It pairs him with fellow closer, Eric Gagne. The card displays game-worn jersey swatches of each pitcher and is serial numbered to just 25 copies. Sutter's first solo game-used memorabilia card can be found in 2005 Upper Deck Artifacts. It is numbered to 325.

Bruce Sutter's autographed memorabilia is very affordable for a Hall of Fame player. He is a regular guest at larger signing events. He has also been a willing in-person signer.
