Orlando Cepeda Cards, Rookie Card and Autographed Memorabilia Guide

Orlando Cepeda

Date of Birth: 9/17/1937
Rookie Card Year: 1958
Investment Rating: 7.0


Overview

Orlando Cepeda was a gifted five-tool player. He combined power and situational hitting ability to rack up a .297 lifetime batting average, 379 home runs and 1,365 runs batted in. He was named the National League's Most Valuable Player in 1967, the same year he helped lead St. Louis to a World Series Championship. It shouldn't be a surprise then that Orlando Cepeda cards and autographed memorabilia remain popular.

Cepeda's rookie card is from the 1958 Topps Baseball set. That year, he also had a card printed by the San Francisco Call-Bulletin newspaper. A regional release, it is considered to be somewhat rare in today's market.

Orlando Cepeda's first autograph card was in the 1999 Fleer Sports Illustrated Greats of the Game set. It is not serial and the total print run has never been made public.

His first memorabilia card appeared in 1999 Upper Deck Ultimate Victory. The card is not serial numbered. It does, however, have a known print run of 350 total cards.

Orlando Cepeda's lengthy career, combined with being a frequent guest at signing events, has translated to plenty of signed items in the marketplace. As a fan favorite for multiple franchises, demand has held up with supply.

This card is amazingly affordable for a Hall of Fame rookie from the 1950s. While professionally graded cards do carry a premium, nice condition cards in VG-EX to EX won't break the bank. It makes for a nice addition to any collection.

Orlando Cepeda Key Signature Attributes: An authentic Orlando Cepeda signature autograph will exhibit several distinguishing characteristics. His signature has gotten very shaky as he has gotten older. However, regardless of  the type of item or when it was signed, look for the following signature features:

  1. It is a flowing signature on a slight downward angle.
  2. The "O" looks like a combination of a "C" and "l."
  3. Many of the letters have loops in them. This allows him to keep the pen on the item as seen in the "a-n" combination of the first name.
  4. The "C" starts with a curl that ends up being the center of the letter.
  5. The letters of the last name are usually a bit more legible than the first.
  6. Each of the letters that should have an opening like "e,d,a" do.
