Mike Schmidt Cards, Rookie Cards and Autographed Memorabilia Guide

Mike Schmidt

Date of Birth: 9/27/1949
Rookie Card Year: 1973
Investment Rating: 7.0


Overview

Mike Schmidt cards and autographed memorabilia have always been popular. Superstars from the era preceding baseball's widespread PED use are seeing renewed interest from baseball purists and collectors. Schmidt played at a time when the 500 Home Run Club was a truly elite group.

Mike Schmidt rookie cards can be found in two products, 1973 Topps Baseball and 1973 O-Pee-Chee Baseball. Of the two, the Topps card is more popular but its Canadian counterpart is much rarer. Schmidt also has a 1973 team-issued Phillies card. In addition, Mike Schmidt is also part of the little-known 1972 Topps Puerto Rican Sticker Collection.

Demand for Mike Schmidt's autographed memorabilia remains high. Values have increased through the years as he does not participate in an over abundance of autograph signings. Given the fact that Mike Schmidt is an early member of the 500 Home Run Club, his autographed memorabilia, particularly signed bats and baseballs have true collector appeal.

Mike Schmidt shares his rookie card with two other freshman third basemen including another stand out player and fan favorite, Ron Cey. High-grade samples professionally graded 9 sell in the $1,200 range, while the rare 10 can command much more.

The big difference between Schmidt's O-Pee-Chee rookie and his Topps card is the bilingual text found on the Canadian card. It's also tougher to find and carries more niche appeal.

Mike Schmidt Signature Example

Mike Schmidt Key Signature Attributes: An authentic Mike Schmidt signature autograph will exhibit several distinguishing characteristics. As an active member of the autograph circuit, Musial autographs are plentiful. However due to the length of time he spent signing, his signature deteriorated over time. Regardless of  the type of item or when it was signed, look for the following signature features:

  1. A rapid, flowing signature, unique and identifiable.
  2. The letter "M" starts with a small curl before a short down and up stroke, the pen creates a angular hump as it flows into the "i-k-e" which are hard to decipher.
  3. The "S" in the middle looks like a number "8."
  4. The remaining letters are not very legible.
  5. The letter "d" looks like a combine cursive "e" and an vertical line.
  6. The letter "t" resembles a cursive "l" and is crossed with a curved swoop that comes up and back to the left.
