Overview

Ryne Sandberg cards and autographed memorabilia have long been popular with collectors, well beyond his glory days in the 1980s and early 90s. Sandberg's winning attitude, exceptional play and approachable demeanor has ingratiated him to fans. After being drafted by the Phillies in 1978, he was traded to the Chicago Cubs were he became be a constant at second base for the majority of his career. Sandberg was a ten-time All-Star and nine-time Gold Glove winner.

Ryan Sandberg has four rookie cards, from 1983 products. In addition, Sandberg also has two food-issue cards as well as an insert card in the 1983 All-Star Game program. The food issue cards are the 1982 Cubs Red Lobster and the 1983 Thorn Apple Valley. Sandberg's most popular minor league cards include 1980 TCMA Reading Phillies and 1981 TCMA Oklahoma City 89ers.

Ryne Sandberg's autograph memorabilia delivers a solid value and return on investment. As a manager, he has been a willing in-person signer. However, the time requirements of the job means he typically only appears at one or two large autograph signing events per year, ensuring that supply shouldn't exceed demand.

Ryne Sandberg Rookie Cards

1983 Donruss Ryne Sandberg RC #277

1983 Donruss Ryne Sandberg

One of the key rookie cards from the 1983 Donruss Baseball set, the card design features a bat and glove at the bottom of the card where the player name, position and team information resides. The framed photo takes up the majority of the space and shows a young Sandberg in road pinstripes.

1983 Fleer Ryne Sandberg RC #507

1983 Fleer Ryne Sandberg

Sandberg's Fleer rookie is an uncorrected error card. It lists the wrong high school that he attended on the back of the card. Another simple clean design that allows the photograph to speak for itself while still delivering, at a glance, all of the necessary vital information. The photo shows Sandberg, again in road pinstripes, having just made contact at the plate

1983 O-Pee-Chee Ryne Sandberg RC #83

1983 OPC Ryne Sandberg

Featuring the same overall design as the Topps issue below, the O-Pee-Chee card differs only in the company logo and the bilingual text. Although rarer than Topps, it isn't exceptionally tough to find.

1983 Topps Ryne Sandberg RC #83

1983 Topps Ryne Sandberg

This is, easily, Ryne Sandberg's most popular and desirable rookie card. The card is a favorite, in part, because of the dual photo on the front of the card.
