Between 1940 and 1958, there was one constant for the Brooklyn Dodgers -- Pee Wee Reese at shortstop. His popularity in the hobby has been a constant just as constant. As a result, Pee Wee Reese cards and autographed memorabilia are still highly sought after.

Reese was a ten-time All-Star and was part of two Worlds Series Championships. He was also instrumental in Jackie Robinson's addition to the team in 1947.

Pee Wee Reese's rookie card is from the 1941 Play Ball set. He is featured alongside Kirby Higbe in a second card in the set. Additionally, Reese has two team-issued cards, one printed in 1940 and the other in 1941.

All of Reese's modern autograph cards are cut signatures. The first debuted as part of the 2000 Upper Deck Brooklyn Dodgers Master Collection. The high-end product also features some of Reese's first memorabilia cards. He has a pair of game-used bat cards, one numbered to 8 and one to 250. Reese is also paired with Jackie Robinson on a dual memorabilia card.

Pee Wee Reese was a fan favorite. While he does have autographed memorabilia in the market, authentic examples can often be pricey. The most commonly found items are photos, documents and other paper-type collectibles. Reese signed bats, baseballs and jerseys do exist. However, they are most often found consigned to high-end auction houses.
