Carl Yastrzemski Cards, Rookie Card and Autographed Memorabilia Guide

Carl Yastrzemski

Date of Birth: 8/22/1939
Rookie Card Year: 1960
Investment Rating: 7.5


Overview

The heart and soul of the Boston Red Sox for much of his 23-year career, Carl Yastrzemski baseball cards and autographed memorabilia remain incredibly popular with collectors. Yastrzemski was an 18-time All-Star and the last player to win MLB's Triple Crown before Miguel Cabrera accomplished it in 2012.

Carl Yastrzemski's lone rookie card comes from 1960 Topps Baseball. A much rarer Venezuelan issue also exists and is considered by many collectors to be a white whale. Collectors are fortunate in that, Topps hadn't made the switch to multiple rookies appearing on the same card at this point. This means that Yastrzemski is the only player featured on his rookie card.

Blowout In Post Ad

Yastrzemski's first certified autograph card was released in 1992 Score Baseball. Numbered to 2,000 copies, it might not seem rare by today's standards but it was extremely rare. He also appears with Mickey Mantle and Stan Musial on a triple autograph card in the set that's numbered to 500.

His first memorabilia cards came in 2000 from Fleer, Topps and Upper Deck.

With 3,419 career hits and 452 home runs, Carl Yastrzemski's autographed memorabilia is coveted by numerous niche collectors as well as the rabid Red Sox fan base. He participated in numerous signing events after his retirement and is said to have provided collectors with a memorable in-person signing experience.

Yastrzemski's rookie card is one of the must haves from the Golden Age of baseball. While high-grade examples might be out of the price range of most collectors, copies in PSA 5-7 grade display very well and are much more affordable.
