Investment Rating: 6.5


Overview

Scott Rolen was a well respected player throughout the league. He was also a fan favorite for the teams he played for during his 16-year MLB career. Scott Rolen cards and autographed memorabilia have always been collectible. His on-field accomplishments reflect that fact.  After being named the NL Rookie of the Year he would go on to be an eight-time Gold Glove Winner, seven-time All-Star and World Series Champion.

Rolen's two rookie cards were issued in 1995 Bowman and 1995 Bowman's Best. As a highly touted prospect within the Philadelphia Phillies organization, Rolen also has a handful of minor league cards dating back to 1994. None of his minor league cards command huge prices or attention.

His first certified autograph card was also issued in 1995. It is part of Upper Deck's minor league SP Top Prospects set. The first MLB Scott Rolen autographs are in several 1997 products.

Rolen's first game-used memorabilia cards debuted in 1999. They can be found in Fleer E-X and Upper Deck MVP sets.

Scott Rolen is best remembered for his tenure with the Phillies and Cardinals. His autographed memorabilia is most popular with fans of those teams. He was a very gracious in-person signer during his playing days. As a result, there is ample supply to meet demand.

Scott Rolen Rookie Card Checklist

1995 Bowman Scott Rolen RC #271

1995 Bowman Scott Rolen RC Foil 213x300 Image

This foil card features a very dynamic design for a base card. The surface is prone to scratches and edges show wear easily. As a result, professionally graded examples returning a high-grade carry a decent premium. A Gold Foil version also exists but it shouldn't cost much more than the regular version.

1995 Bowman's Best Scott Rolen RC #B87

The Bowman's Best brand was a premium product that has a very loyal following. At one time, 1995 Bowman's Best Baseball was one of the most popular sets in the entire hobby. The card stock is thicker than traditional base cards and features a chromium finish. While prices of the base card have softened in recent years, the Refractor parallel remains highly coveted.
