Investment Rating: 6.5


Overview

It didn't happen right away like some other pitchers, but Max Scherzer is emerging as one of baseball's best. The starter for the American League at the 2013 All-Star Game, he's a key piece of Detroit's dominant pitching staff. Max Scherzer cards and memorabilia are slowly building a bigger following, but there's still plenty of room for growth, which will likely only come with a more prolonged dominance.

Drafted by the Arizona Diamondbacks with the 11th pick in the 2006 draft, Scherzer came to the Tigers as part of the blockbuster three-team deal that sent Curtis Granderson to the Yankees. In his first three seasons in Detroit, Scherzer was consistent and dependable but not necessarily ace material. That changed in 2013 when he started the season with 12 wins before recording his first loss just before the All-Star Break.

Upper Deck released the first Max Scherzer cards in 2005 as part of their USA Baseball line. These included a handful of different autographs and memorabilia cards. 2007 Donruss Elite Extra Edition also has a Scherzer autograph that is numbered to 250.

Max Scherzer rookie cards can be found in 2008 products. Of his 16 rookies, four are autographed. The 2008 Upper Deck Ultimate Collection Max Scherzer is the only one to have a signature and memorabilia swatch. His signature is done directly on the fabric. Additionally,  a redemption for an Max Scherzer rookie card with an autograph and memorabilia swatch was inserted in 2008 SP Authentic, the final card was never produced.

Scherzer has a moderate number of autograph cards. In most instances though, he has several different cards in the same release. That said, most remain extremely affordable. Max Scherzer cards are definitely on the rise after his coming out of sorts in 2013. However, with a lot of collectors shying away from pitchers, it's going to take more than one strong season to rank among the hobby elite.

Max Scherzer Cut Signature Exemplar:

Max Scherzer Key Signature Attributes: An authentic Max Scherzer 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. The signature exhibits an overall consistency that feels rushed with few letters being clearly discernible.
  2. The letter "M" includes a long horizontal line extending off the left side with a small curlycue with the letter's humps written high on the letter and spaced very close together.
  3. The pen lifts and the letters "a-x" are tiny but visible.
  4. The letter "S" is dominant in the characters of the last name which then appears to have a scribble of some sort, implying several letters, written over it.
  5. Extending out of that mess is what resembles a "+."
