Overview

Roberto Alomar cards and autographed memorabilia have remained popular with collectors long after his retirement in 2004. He played for seven teams during his big league career but was the first inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame as a member of the Toronto Blue Jay. Alomar won two World Series titles while with Toronto.

His resume reflects his Hall of Fame status. He was an All-Star 12-times and won ten Gold Glove awards. He finished his career with a lifetime batting average of .300, while racking up 2,724 hits, 1,134 runs batted in and 474 stolen bases.

Roberto Alomar has five rookie cards, three of which can be found in end-of-season update factory. Alomar also has two minor league cards, 1987 Texas League All-Stars set 1987 Wichita Pilots, a team-issue card.

Alomar's first certified autograph card is part of the 1992 Donruss McDonald's set. Available in Canadian restaurants, it was a prize for a massive baseball card promotion. One of his most popular, early autograph cards is from 1996 Leaf Signature Series. The base version of the card has a print run of 700. Two parallels, Gold and Silver, have print runs of 100 and 200 respectively.

The first Roberto Alomar game-used memorabilia card was produced by Upper Deck in 1998. It is a Piece of the Action insert card. The card is not serial numbered but has a disclosed print run of 225 total copies.

Roberto Alomar's autographed memorabilia has seen relatively consistent demand. He was a fan favorite wherever he played and was often a willing in-person signer. He does participate in the occasional autograph signing event.

Roberto Alomar Rookie Cards

1988 Donruss Roberto Alomar RC #34

1988 Donruss Roberto Alomar RC

Unfortunately for collectors, the 1988 Donruss Baseball set was one of the most over-produced products in trading card history. As a result, Alomar's rookie card has very little value. On the plus side, it doesn't cost very much to acquire a rookie card of a Hall of Fame player. Even when professionally graded and earning top marks, the card receives only a slight increase in value.

1988 Leaf Roberto Alomar RC #34

The Leaf version of the card features the same design but with a different brand logo. Aimed at the Canadian market,  it is believed that the Leaf card may have had a smaller print run. Still, it is not enough to add a premium.

1988 Fleer Update Roberto Alomar RC #122
