Lou Brock Cards, Rookie Card and Autographed Memorabilia Guide

Lou Brock

Date of Birth: 6/18/1939
Rookie Card Year: 1962
Investment Rating: 6.5


Overview

Lou Brock cards and autographed memorabilia are popular with many types of collectors. Not only is he an accomplished Hall of Fame baseball player, he is also the subject of one of the most lopsided trades in major league history. His movement from the Chicago Cubs to the division-rival St. Louis Cardinals had repercussions for the "Lovable Losers" for years. Traded very early in his career, Cubs fans would lament the deal as they witnessed the rise of the eventual superstar.

Brock was a six-time All-Star and would go on to win two World Series titles with the Cardinals. A gifted contact hitter with speed, he is a member of the 3,000 Hit Club. Brock retired as baseball's all-time leader in stolen bases but was later passed by Rickey Henderson.

Brock made his playing debut late in the 1961 season. His first appearance on a trading card would take place the following year with his inclusion as part of the 1962 Topps Baseball set.

Lou Brock's first certified autograph can be found in 1992 Upper Deck Baseball Low Series boxes as part of the Heroes of Baseball insert set. It was issued at a time when a print run of 3,000 was considered rare. Landing one is tough but relatively inexpensive. In 2000, Upper Deck, Topps and Fleer would all issue memorabilia cards of Lou Brock. His cards from the Upper Deck Piece of History set are among the most popular from that year.

A frequent signer on the national autograph circuit, Lou Brock's popularity with both Cubs and Cardinals fans translates to strong demand for his autographed memorabilia. Being a member of the 3,000 Hit Club ensures demand for his signature outside of those fan bases as well.

The classic design of the 1962 Topps Baseball set make it instantly recognizable. The wood grain borders, vibrant background and close-up head and and shoulders portraits all work together to make it memorable. The use of an early rookie card logo designates Brock as such for the season. The border of the card serves as a frame for the picture which is further accented with it "rolling" up off the surface to reveal the player's name, team and position.
