Overview

Kirby Puckett was one of the most beloved baseball players of the 1980s. His enthusiasm for the game, not to mention his stellar hitting, made Kirby Puckett cards and memorabilia extremely popular.

Gifted with the ability to hit, particular for average, Puckett was a ten-time All-Star and won two World Series Championships. He retired with a .318 lifetime batting average.

Puckett has one rookie card, which is found in 1984 Fleer Update Baseball. The box set is one of the most valuable of the decade. It's also relatively rare when you consider the era it comes from. Because 1984 Fleer Update was issued as a box set, some consider Kirby Puckett's 1985 cards to be rookies.

Kirby Puckett's first autograph card is in the 1996 Leaf Signature Series set. The card has a print run of 1,000 copies. He also has a Century Marks parallel that is limited to 100 copies.

His first memorabilia cards appeared in several 2001 sets from Donruss/Playoff, Topps and Upper Deck. His 2001 Donruss Benchmarks card is one of the more popular ones. Numbered to 25, it contains game-used material and is accompanied by his autograph.

The value of Kirby Puckett's autographed memorabilia has increased in value through the years. His untimely death created a finite amount of supply. Demand currently exceeds those numbers ensuring the collectibility of his signed memorabilia for years to come.
