Johnny Damon Cards, Rookie Card and Autographed Memorabilia Guide

Johnny Damon

Date of Birth: 11/5/1973
Rookie Card Year: 1993
Investment Rating: 7.5


Overview

Johnny Damon baseball cards and autographed memorabilia are collectible with a wide range of fans and collectors. He played for seven teams during his 17-year career including World Series Championships with the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees. Damon was an all-around player who finished his career in 2012 with 2,769 hits, a .284 batting average and 1,139 runs batted in.

Damon is a bit of an oddity in the collecting world when it comes to his rookie cards. He actually has rookie cards in two different years, 1993 and 1995. He was originally drafted by the Kansas City Royals in 1992 with the 35th overall pick. However, due to lack of playing time, Damon lost his rookie eligibility status. This changed in 1995 when he debuted with the big league club.

Damon has just one rookie card, but it's a good one. 1993 SP Baseball might be known primarily for the Derek Jeter rookie, but Damon is a very solid card as well.

Johnny Damon's first certified autograph card is from 1995 Upper Deck Minor League. His first MLB autograph card is from 1996 Leaf Signature Series. Three versions of the card exist. While none of them are serial numbered, acknowledged print runs are 3,500 for the base version, 1,000 for the Silver parallel and 500 for Gold.

His first game-used memorabilia cards were released in 2001 by multiple manufacturers. The most popular of these is from 2001 Upper Deck Gold Glove. It contains a swatch of a game-used fielding glove and Damon's autograph.

Damon's autographed memorabilia sees the most demand in the Boston market. He was part of the team that brought the Red Sox their World Series Championship in 2004. He was also a fan favorite during his playing days in Oakland, New York and Kansas City. As a result, his signature is well respected and in demand with collectors of those teams as well.

1993 SP Johnny Damon RC

1993 SP was one of the original super-premium sets of the modern age. Like all of the cards in the Premier Prospects subset, the foil design is extremely condition sensitive. Chipping along the sides is the norm for this card. Top-tier graded cards can command big premiums over raw cards.

Johnny Damon Signature Example

Johnny Damon Key Signature Attributes: An authentic Johnny Damon signature autograph will exhibit several distinguishing characteristics. Regardless of  the type of item or when it was signed, look for the following signature features:

  1. Damon has a very brief signature that is defined by just a few characters.
  2. The letter "J" is discernible. It resembles a backwards "L."
  3. The pen lifts and then continues with a relatively, horizontal line that flows into an "o" shape.
  4. A line of equal size, comes off the back of the "o" and takes a small dip.
  5. The "D" is legible. It contains no connecting vertical line to the curved portion of the letter.
  6. The "a" is legible as is the "m."
  7. The remaining letters are implied and not present.
