Rookie Cards
Giancarlo Stanton is one of the most dangerous hitters in baseball. But as good as he is, playing for the Miami Marlins hurts his overall hobby appeal. However, you can only ignore great numbers for so long. As a result, Giancarlo Stanton rookie cards are starting to get the attention they deserve.

The first Giancarlo Stanton cards were issued in 2008 under the name he used to go by: Mike (or Michael). All of these came from prospect sets or were inserts, so they're technically not rookie cards. That said, it's unlikely you'll find a card of his that's more universally popular than the Michael Stanton 2008 Bowman Chrome Draft Prospect Autograph.

The official Giancarlo Stanton rookie cards released in 2010 following his debut with the Marlins. Most are affordable, although there are a couple of high-end options to chase. Stanton also appeared on several autographed inserts in 2010, which continue to see interest.

Below is a full list of Stanton's rookie cards from 2010. Notable Giancarlo Stanton prospect cards are provided on the tab above.

2010 Bowman Draft Mike Stanton RC #BDP30

This is about as basic (and cheap) as it gets for Giancarlo Stanton rookie cards. Because of this, a lot of collectors opt for the more premium options like the Chrome version and various Refractors.

2010 Bowman Chrome Mike Stanton RC #198

Although still a very budget-friendly card, Bowman Chrome offers a bit more of an upscale feel over the base Bowman Draft and Topps Update Giancarlo Stanton rookie cards. Collectors also have lots of Refractors to chase.

2010 Bowman Platinum Mike Stanton RC #86

Bowman Platinum is a brand that has evolved somewhat over the years. While it has always been about rookies and prospects, its early days were marked by dull foil. The 2010 Bowman Platinum Giancarlo Stanton is an example of this. However, the base Refractor (#/999) and Gold Refractor (#/539), pictured below, helps with that considerably.

2010 Bowman Sterling Mike Stanton RC #17

Although it's not numbered, the 2010 Bowman Sterling Stanton rookie card commands something of a premium. The reason? Base cards are tougher to come by in the autograph-heavy product. As a result, there aren't many of this card to go around, even with parallels that include Refractors (#/199), Gold Refractors (#/50), Black Refractors (#/25) and Purple Refractors (#/10).

2010 Topps Update Series Mike Stanton RC #US50

The 2010 Update Giancarlo Stanton rookie card has a couple of things going for it, but a high price tag isn't one of them. Boasting the flagship design, there's a good chance you'll see this card recycled over the years. Helping its appeal, the horizontal action shot is much more exciting than the photos on his other rookies.

2010 Topps Updates and Highlights Mike Stanton RC

2010 Topps Chrome Mike Stanton RC #190

Another popular chromium option, collectors can find a base rookie and an autographed version for Stanton. It's good to note that 2010 Topps Chrome is notorious for curling, so other than a top loader, storage might be a little trickier. Of course, in modern Topps Chrome fashion, there are plenty of Refractor parallels to track down.

2010 Topps Sterling Mike Stanton RC #103 #/250

Rarity is the driving force behind Stanton's Topps Sterling card. Coming from a high-end set, it's one of only two serial numbered Giancarlo Stanton rookie cards. Limited to 250 copies, they don't show up in large numbers and command something of a premium that's similar to Bowman Sterling.

2010 Topps Sterling Mike Stanton RC

2010 Topps Triple Threads Mike Stanton RC #186 Autograph Jersey #/99

Although Giancarlo Stanton has several autographs from 2010, Triple Threads is the only one that's a true base set rookie card. Not only signed on-card, it also has three memorabilia swatches and is numbered to just 99 copies.

  1. If the post is regarding Gioncarlo, why is most of the stuff for Mike?

  2. Eric M Michael is his middle name, which he went by at first. He switched back to a preference for Giancarlo.

  3. I got a panini red stanton. 2012. I cannot find one any where
