Jim Edmonds Cards, Rookie Cards and Autographed Memorabilia Guide

Jim Edmonds

Date of Birth: 6/27/1970
Rookie Card Year: 1993
Investment Rating: 6.0


Overview

Jim Edmonds was a fan favorite wherever he played. During his 17-year career, he defined the saying, "Hustle can highlight what talent lacks." His playing style was reminiscent of Pete Rose, the original "Charlie Hustle." It's understandable then, why Jim Edmonds baseball cards and autographed memorabilia are special to so many of his fans.

Edmonds was a four-time All-Star and eight-time Gold Glove winner. He had a lifetime batting average of .284 and 393 home runs. While those numbers may or may not get him into Cooperstown, they certainly justify his place in the hobby.

Blowout In Post Ad

Edmonds made his major league debut in 1993. His rookie cards were released that same year in 1993 Fleer Final Edition, 1993 Topps and 1993 Ultra. Edmonds also has several minor league cards that were issued between 1988 and 1992.

His first certified autograph cards can be found in 1996 Leaf Signature Series. The base autograph has a print run of 3,500. Additionally, two parallels, Silver and Gold have runs of 1,000 and 500 respectively.

In 2001, several companies produced the first Jim Edmonds memorabilia cards. They can be found in multiple sets from Donruss, Fleer, Pacific and Upper Deck.

Jim Edmonds won a  World Series Championship in 2006 while playing for the St. Louis Cardinals. Autographed memorabilia related to this event carries a premium. He will occasionally participate in organized signing events and is still frequently seen at Busch Stadium where he is part of the local broadcast team. He is usually pretty accessible to fans for in-person autographs.

Jim Edmonds Key Signature Attributes: An authentic Jim Edmonds 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. Edmonds has an extremely unique and individualized signature.
  2. Instead of trying to decipher letter patterns look for character shapes.
  3. The first character is a "j" but it resembles a backwards and exaggerated "L" with the horizontal line much longer than the vertical.
  4. A small mark implying the "i" is next.
  5. An over-sized "E" follows and is formed in a manner that it resembles a backwards "3."
  6. A short horizontal line extends to the left and connects with a large "(" shape.
  7. The next couple of characters are not discernible.
  8. A very large "C" shape set on angle finishes the signature.

  1. Have you ever seen a 1993 fleer ultra Jim Edmonds rookie with a #52 Gary Gaetti back.

  2. george miles » Although I haven’t personally seen that exact card, it’s a relatively common type of printing error.
