Rollie Fingers Cards, Rookie Card and Autographed Memorabilia Guide

Rollie Fingers

Date of Birth: 8/25/1946
Rookie Card Year: 1969
Investment Rating: 5.5


Overview

Rollie Fingers cards and autographed memorabilia may be slightly undervalued. This is interesting given his importance to baseball. During his 22-year career, Fingers was instrumental in helping to develop relief pitching and the closer role that's vital today.

Fingers spent many years in the league as a starting pitcher before transitioning to the bullpen. He helped the Oakland Athletics to three consecutive World Series wins in the 1970s. Fingers' performance in the role of closer was so dominating in 1981 that he won the American League's Cy Young and MVP awards.

The Rollie Fingers rookie card is in 1969 Topps Baseball. He shares the card with two other players, Bob Floyd and Larry Burchart.

Fingers' first autographed baseball card is from 1992 Upper Deck Baseball. It is a Baseball Heroes insert card numbered to 3,000. His first memorabilia card was produced in the 2000 Upper Deck Legends set.

Rollie Fingers' autographed memorabilia is very affordable. He regularly participates in organized signing events. As a result, there is currently an excess supply of his signed memorabilia. However, pieces related to Oakland's World Series Championships, like programs, do carry a slight premium.

As was custom for the era, Fingers shares his rookie card landscape with other players. It is somewhat unfortunate that a player of his Hall of Fame stature doesn't have his own rookie card. As a result, his 1970 Topps card is also very popular with collectors.
