Carlton Fisk Cards, Rookie Card and Autographed Memorabilia Guide

Carlton Fisk

Date of Birth: 12/26/1947
Rookie Card Year: 1972
Investment Rating: 6.5


Overview

As one of the most popular catchers of all-time, Carlton Fisk cards and autographed memorabilia remain extremely popular despite being readily available. Fisk made his playing debut with the Boston Red Sox in 1969 and his final appearance with the Chicago White Sox in 1993. The 11-time All-Star was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2000. Fisk was involved in one of the most memorable highlights in baseball history when, during the 1975 World Series, his demonstrative body language willed a ball past the left field foul pole for a home run and sent the series to a Game 7.

Although he made his debut in 1969, Carlton Fisk's rookie card would come three years later in 1972 Topps Baseball. Fisk also had a nearly identical card issued in the Canadian market by O-Pee-Chee.  Additionally, Fisk appeared in 1972 Topps Candy Lids and a 1972 Boston Red Sox team-issued card.

A frequent signer on the national autograph circuit, Carlton Fisk autographed memorabilia is plentiful. However, due to having played for two large-market teams for an almost equal duration, demand remains strong. The highlight of Fisk during the 1975 World Series is continually played, even today and as such, Fisk continues to develop new generations of fans.

Carlton Fisk Rookie Cards

1972 Topps Carlton Fisk RC

Carlton Fisk shares his rookie card with fellow Red Sox rookies Cecil Cooper and Mike Garman. The style of the 1972 Topps set has always been a collector favorite and Fisk's rookie is the key card in the set.

1972 O-Pee-Chee Carlton Fisk RC

Virtually identical to his Topps card, the Canadian O-Pee-Chee version features bilingual text on the back in English and French. As is the case with other O-Pee-Chee cards from the era, it's significantly rarer than Topps but it doesn't command much of a premium.

Carlton Fisk Cut Signature Exemplar

Carlton Fisk Signature Example

Carlton Fisk Key Signature Attributes: An authentic Carlton Fisk signature autograph will exhibit several distinguishing characteristics. As an active member of the autograph circuit, Musial autographs are plentiful. However due to the length of time he spent signing, his signature deteriorated over time. Regardless of  the type of item or when it was signed, look for the following signature features:

  1. A rapid, flowing signature, unique and identifiable.
  2. Written in cursive with minimal stops and starts.
  3. The "C" contains a slight hook at the top and is almost closed like an oval, the bottom of the "C" curls up into the middle of the rest of the name.
  4. The pen lifts to write the letter "a" which is closed and flows into the "r" which has a small hitch in it making it almost look like an "n."
  5. The convergence in the middle of the signature of the upstroke from the "C" the loop of the "l" and the cross of the single line "t" gets a bit convoluted but can be discerned upon inspection.
  6. The letters "o-n" are small with the "o" looking like more of an "a."
  7. The letter "F" is very unique. A short down/up stoke followed by a longer down vertical is then crossed at a 45 degree angle extending back and to the left of the signature.
  8. The "i" is implied, with the "s" being a narrow triangular shape.
  9. The signature finishes with a "k" that includes a narrow loop at the top of the vertical and the remaining lines resembling a connected "u."
