Bert Blyleven

Date of Birth: 4/6/1951
Rookie Card Year: 1971
Investment Rating: 6.0


Overview

When he was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2011, Bert Blyleven cards and autographed memorabilia got a spike in value. Blyleven had been on the induction bubble for several years and finally earned his rightful place among baseball's greats.

Blyleven is a two-time Worlds Series Champion and All-Star. He racked up 287 wins in his 22-year career. He retired with a lifetime ERA of 3.31 and 3,701 strikeouts.

Bert Blyleven has two rookie cards, 1971 Topps and 1971 O-Pee-Chee Baseball.

Blyleven's first certified autograph card is part of the 2000 Fleer Greats of the Game set. The card features an on-card signature.

His first game-used memorabilia cards were issued by Topps in 2002. He has game-worn jersey cards in that year's Stadium Club and Tribute brands.

Bert Blyleven's autographed memorabilia is very affordable for a Hall of Famer. He is a frequent participant in autograph signing events. Having played for six teams during his career, his signature is popular with fans from coast-to-coast.

The 1971 O-Pee-Chee card features an identical photograph and design to its Topps counterpart. The key difference between the two cards is the bilingual back of the O-Pee-Chee card. The text is written in French and English. The black borders make top condition cards extremely rare. Like a lot of O-Pee-Chee issues, centering is also a major issue.

The all-black borders of the card do little in the way of hiding even the smallest of imperfections. As a result, cards getting top professional grades can hit huge numbers because they're so scarce.
