Date of Birth: 5/14/1977
Rookie Card Year: 1997
Investment Rating: 6.5


Overview

Roy Halladay was one of baseball's most dominant pitchers across the 2000s. During this decade, Roy Halladay rookie cards and memorabilia became popular, especially once he went to Philadelphia.

Starting his career in Toronto, he quietly earned a reputation for being a workhorse on the mound. After years of being the ace in Toronto, "Doc" Halladay was sent to the Phillies via a blockbuster off-season deal in December 2009. The switch to the National League didn't hurt the pitcher. He went 21-10 with an NL-leading nine complete games and four shutouts on his way to his second Cy Young Award. Halladay also won the award in 2003 with the Blue Jays.

In May of 2010, Halladay tossed a perfect game against the Marlins. He followed it up with a no-hitter in his very first postseason start. This playoff achievement came against Cincinnati in the opening game of the 2010 National League Division Series. Injuries and age eventually caught up to the pitcher and Halladay retired following the 2013 season.

While it took Roy Halladay cards and memorabilia a while to get the recognition they deserve, the pitcher did finally emerge as one of the hobby's elite. At least when it comes to pitchers.

As far as his earliest cardboard releases, Roy Halladay rookie cards are limited to a trio of 1997 Bowman-brand products. A full breakdown is provided on the tab above. Halladay's most popular base card is easily his 1997 Bowman Chrome Baseball rookie card. High-end and autograph collectors will want to consider his 1997 Bowman Baseball autographs, which come in three color variations (blue, black and gold). Halladay also has a 1995 Signature Rookies Tetrad Baseball autograph. However, the card, which is numbered to 5,000 copies, is a minor league issue.

Considering Halladay's credentials, he doesn't have a ton of autographed cards on the market. As a result, they carry more value than similar-caliber players. Other popular pieces of Halladay memorabilia include signed baseballs and jerseys. His Phillies items may have more mainstream appeal, but the pitcher was also viewed as a hero in Canada, creating a captive market for Halladay's Blue Jays collectibles.

As far as future values, it could go either way. Some see Halladay as a Hall of Fame candidate, which he is eligible for in 2019. If he is elected, expect a spike in interest.

Roy Halladay Rookie Cards Checklist and Gallery

1997 Bowman Roy Halladay RC #308

Halladay's cheapest rookie card is also the toughest one to keep in mint condition due to its black borders and soft card stock. Shot from the point of view of a batter, the card depicts the pitcher ready to deliver to home plate. The lone parallel is the foil International card.

1997 Bowman Chrome Roy Halladay RC #212

A chromium take on his regular Bowman card, this is an essential piece of Halladay collection. It's also available in several parallels: Refractors, International and International Refractors.

1997 Bowman's Best Roy Halladay RC #134

Somewhat overlooked because of the popularity of 1997 Bowman Chrome, Halladay's 1997 Bowman's Best rookie is another chromium card. The full-body shot is very similar to the photo used on his Bowman card, just a little further along in the motion. The baseball card is paralleled by both a Refractor and an Atomic Refractor.
