Buster Posey Baseball Cards: Rookie Cards Checklist and Autograph Buying Guide

Buster Posey

Date of Birth: 3/27/1987
Rookie Card Year: 2010
Investment Rating: 7.5


Rookie-Prospect Cards

Buster Posey was drafted by the San Francisco Giants with the fifth overall pick in the 2008 Major League Baseball Draft. Fast-tracking through the team's farm system, Posey made his major league debut on September 11, 2009. He began 2010 in the minors but rejoined the Giants on May 29, becoming their everyday catcher. Posey's stellar rookie campaign was rewarded with him being named the 2010 National League Rookie of the Year. He also helped lead San Francisco to a World Series victory. Today, he's not only one of the most collectible catchers but Buster Posey cards and memorabilia are among the most popular in all of baseball.

Posey displays all the characteristics of the quintessential five-tool player. His ability to hit for power and average were displayed early on in his pro career and led to his quick rise to the majors. His abilities behind the plate have already earned him the Johnny Bench Award and he is almost assured of being a future Gold Glover at the position.

Buster Posey cards fall into two categories, which can be confusing for collectors. Some of his most valuable cards aren't even true rookie cards by traditional definitions, but instead are his prospect cards from 2008 and 2009. His first official rookie cards are from the 2010 season. Because of the redundant nature of many prospects cards from 2008 and 2009, below you will find Posey's key 2008 prospect cards.

Buster Posey Cut Signature Example

Buster Posey Key Signature Attributes: An authentic Buster Posey signature autograph will exhibit several distinguishing characteristics. Regardless of  the type of item or when it was signed, look for the following signature features:

  1. Buster Posey's signature is defined by an over-sized letter "B" and a unique letter "P."
  2. The Letter "B" contains two open loops with a slight tail at the beginning and end of the pen stroke.
  3. The pen lifts to start a discernible letter "u."
  4. An odd, almost backward looking letter "P" consists of two pen strokes, a slightly curved vertical line, and charachter that looks like a cartoon caption bubble.
  5. A slightly curved horizontal line separates the letter "P" from a legible letter "y" which contains a downward loop.
  6. Posey usually inscribes his jersey number "28."

  1. Hello,
    My son Tyler (8) and I collect Ryne Sandberg and Buster Posey cards. We were wondering if there is any way to obtain a master list off all cards printed for either of these players.

    Thanks,
    Matt Warhurst

  2. There is a guy on ebay that offers a complete list of Buster Posey cards to date. Search Buster Posey rookie in cards. Hope it helps. D.M.
