Paul Molitor Cards, Rookie Card and Autographed Memorabilia Guide

Paul Molitor

Date of Birth: 8/22/1956
Rookie Card Year: 1978
Investment Rating: 6.0


Overview

Paul Molitor baseball cards and autographed memorabilia have wide appeal. His on-field accomplishments defined what it meant to be a five-tool player. With a lifetime batting average of .306 and 3,319 hits, he earned his nickname as "The Ignitor." His 21-year career was dominated by time with two teams, the Milwaukee Brewers and the Minnesota Twins. That said, he was named the 1993 World Series MVP while with the Toronto Blue Jays.

Paul Molitor's lone rookie card comes from the 1978 Topps Baseball set. He shares the card with potential Hall of Famer, Alan Trammell as well as the New York Yankees' Mickey Klutts and the Kansas City Royals' U.L. Washington. In recent years, star player rookie cards from the 1970s have been gaining appreciation by collector's, which has translated into an increase in value. This card is a perfect example of that trend.

Paul Molitor's first certified autograph card was part of the 1993 Donruss Elite Dominators set. It is serial numbered to 2,500 copies. In 2000, Fleer, Topps and Upper Deck all released Paul Molitor memorabilia cards. One of the most popular is the 2000 Upper Deck Piece of History 3,000 Hit Club game-used bat card, which has a print run of 350 copies.

Paul Molitor's autographed memorabilia is plentiful but demand comes on several fronts. Brewers and Twins fans lead the way. Specialized 3,000 Hit Club and Hall of Fame collectors also fuel demand. Molitor frequently participates in several autograph signings every year.

  5. The letter "M" has a short curl at the top with an up and down line creating an upside down "l", the first hump is often more rounded than the second.
  6. The pen lifts and then the "o" is a closed circle, the "l" is written on an angle to then flow into the "i" which is dotted but not always above the letter itself.

  1. The funny thing to me is that the Cut signature exemplar at the top of the page looks fake to me. The M being separated from his signature with the final line going strongly downward does not look like any of the other exemplars on the page nor like any of the autographs I obtained from Molitor in person when I was a kid in Milwaukee in the 1980s.

  2. Tony This sample is from a PSA/DNA certified exemplar. Molitor’s signature has changed through the years. It can be confusing I know. Thanks for the feedback.
