Overview

Robin Roberts played most of his 22-year MLB career for the Philadelphia Phillies. He was a seven-time All-Star who racked up 286 wins, a 3.41 earned run average and 2,357 strikeouts. Robin Roberts cards are a great bargain for a Hall of Fame pitcher.

Roberts' rookie card is from the 1949 Bowman Baseball set. He also has a couple of first-year regional issues in 1949 Olmes Studios and 1949 Lummis Peanut Butter. Also of interest for Robin Roberts fans is a pop-up-style card issued by the Philadelphia Bulletin in 1948.

Blowout In Post Ad

Interesting to note is that Roberts is the subject of one of the hobby's rarest cards. In 1951, Topps printed a little-known All-Stars set consisting of 11 cards. However, three of the cards were never released to the public, Roberts being one of them. It is believed that a few copies manged to leave the printing facility and, today, only five copies are known to exist.

Robin Roberts' first certified autograph card is from 1997 Topps Stars. It is a reprint of his 1952 Topps card and features an on-card signature.

His first memorabilia card can be found in 2001 Topps Heritage. The Grandstand Glory insert is not serial numbered.

Rob Roberts' autographed memorabilia is readily available. Signed baseballs and photos are the most commonly found items. He was a frequent participant in organized signing events. In the latter part of his career, Roberts pitched for the Baltimore Orioles, Houston Astros and the Chicago Cubs. Collectors of those teams, in addition to those of the Phillies, drive demand for Roberts' signed memorabilia.

Robin Roberts Rookie Card

1949 Bowman Robin Roberts RC #46

1949 Bowman Robin Roberts RC

This card features a colorized photo of Roberts' follow-through after delivering a pitch. It measures 2-1/16 by 2-1/2 inches. The corners are prone to edge wear and are often seen slightly rounded. As a result, professionally graded examples returned with a high grade do carry a premium.

Robin Roberts Signature Example

Robin Roberts Key Signature Attributes: An authentic Robin Roberts 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 is written in cursive on a relatively even horizontal plane with just a slight lean to the right.
  2. Both of the letter "R"s are larger than the others. At first glance they resemble more of a letter "P." Upon closer inspection a very small line extends down but does not meet the plane.
  3. The other letters in the first name are not distinguishable. The exception to this is the "i," which is dotted with a slight dash.
  4. The letters of the last name that are most legible are the "t-s."
  5. The "t" is written like a cursive lower-case "l" and then crossed.
  6. The "s" forms a small triangle shape.
