Jimmie Foxx

Date of Birth: 10/22/1907
Rookie Card Year: 1933
Investment Rating: 9.5


Overview

Jimmie Foxx was one of the most prolific hitters the game has ever seen. With the ability to hit for power and average, his prowess at the plate wreaked fear in opposing pitchers. As a result, Jimmie Foxx baseball cards and autographed memorabilia are highly coveted, even to this day.

Foxx spent the majority of career split between two rabid fan bases, the Philadelphia Athletics and the Boston Red Sox. Competing for his collectibles are not only collectors of those two teams, but 500 Home Run Club collectors, Hall of Fame Collectors, just to name a few. What results is frantic bidding on any high-grade card, game-used memorabilia, or authentic autographs that hit the market.

Another player whose official rookie cards are part of the 1933 Goudey Baseball set, Foxx also has an impressive pre-rookie checklist that includes the following:

  • 1926-29 Exhibit Postcard

In addition to his 1933 Goudey cards, Ott also has other cards that were printed that year including one in the very popular 1933 Delong Gum set, as well as these others products:

  • 1933 R306 Butter Cream #8

  • 1933 R305 Tattoo Orbit #20

With regards to Foxx's modern cards, his first certified autograph cards were one-of-one cut signature cards in 1999 SP Signature and 1999 Upper Deck Century Legends. That year also saw the first Jimmie Foxx memorabilia card, with Upper Deck producing a bat card for the Piece of History 500 Home Run Club set.

The bright yellow background and accompanying red banner along the bottom provides a striking contrast to the image of Foxx, clad in white as he swings threw a pitch in a posed shot.

1933 Goudey Jimmie Foxx RC #154

1933 Goudey Jimmie Foxx RC #154

This is identical to card #29 but with different numbering. Neither card commands a premium over the other but this one seems easier to find.

  3. The "i"'s are dotted but haphazardly.
  4. The "m"'s are nearly identical as are the "x"s.
