Nellie Fox Cards and Autographed Memorabilia Guide

Nellie Fox

Date of Birth: 12/25/1927
Rookie Card Year: 1951
Investment Rating: 7.0


Overview

A key player and fan favorite on the White Sox during the 1950s and '60s, Nellie Fox cards and autographed memorabilia are held in high regard by collectors. Fox was an All-Star 15-times and won the American League MVP award in 1959, a year in which he led the White Sox to the World Series. Fox died in 1975 at the young age of 47. His untimely death contributes significantly to his collectibility.

Fox's rookie card comes from 1951 Bowman Baseball. He also has two regionally issued cards that were released in 1949. One is an A's team issued card and the other from the Philadelphia Bulletin newspaper.

All of Nellie Fox's autographed cards are cut signatures. Having died well before the modern trading card era, this is the only means to acquire Nellie Fox's signature on a trading card. His first such card was produced by Upper Deck as part of their 2001 SP Legendary Cuts set. The card is serial numbered to 9.

His first memorabilia cards also debuted in 2001. Donruss, Fleer, Topps and Upper Deck each produced game-used cards of Nellie Fox in various products that year. In particular, his game-used jersey card from SP Legendary Cuts is very popular with collectors. It is not serial numbered and the exact quantity produced is unknown.

Nellie Fox's autographed memorabilia is considered to be somewhat rare. He was a very willing in-person signer during his career and even after his retirement. He passed away prior to the expanded popularity of the sports collectibles hobby. As a result, he never participated in large, organized signing events. Given his Hall of Fame status, caution should be used when looking to purchase Nellie Fox autographs as his signature is often forged.

This is an extremely popular vintage set. The cards are art renderings of actual photographs. Fox is upstaged, though, by having to share the rookie card spotlight with fellow Hall of Famers Whitey Ford, Mickey Mantle and Willie Mays.
