Jimmie Foxx Baseball Cards and Autographed Memorabilia Buying Guide

Date of Birth: 10/22/1907
Rookie Card Year: 1933
Investment Rating: 9.5


Overview

Jimmie Foxx was one of the most prolific hitters the game has ever seen. With the ability to hit for power and average, his prowess at the plate wreaked fear in opposing pitchers. As a result, Jimmie Foxx baseball cards and autographed memorabilia are highly coveted, even to this day.

Foxx spent the majority of career split between two rabid fan bases, the Philadelphia Athletics and the Boston Red Sox. Competing for his collectibles are not only collectors of those two teams, but 500 Home Run Club collectors, Hall of Fame Collectors, just to name a few. What results is frantic bidding on any high-grade card, game-used memorabilia, or authentic autographs that hit the market.

The bright yellow background and accompanying red banner along the bottom provides a striking contrast to the image of Foxx, clad in white as he swings threw a pitch in a posed shot.

1933 Goudey Jimmie Foxx RC #154

This is identical to card #29 but with different numbering. Neither card commands a premium over the other but this one seems easier to find.
