Rookie Card Year: 1955
Investment Rating: 7.0
One of the giants of baseball history, Sandy Koufax is best remembered for a relatively short, but highly productive career. The Hall of Fame pitcher does not see the same premium rookie card values as some of the other elite names in baseball history. Even still, the first-year Sandy Koufax card still commands strong values among collectors. The same can really be said for all Sandy Koufax cards.
As he has settled into his retirement, Koufax has signed autographs for several card sets, particularly in recent years, but most are very low print runs. Topps is the only company who currently makes signed Sandy Koufax cards. He does still do the occasional signing but they are usually private. The market remains strong for any pack-inserted Sandy Koufax cards featuring his autograph.
The only Sandy Koufax rookie card can be found in 1955 Topps Baseball.
