Kansas City Royals Collecting and Fan Guide

Kansas City Royals

Franchise Founded: 1969
Championships: 1
Team Collectibility Rating: 7.5


Overview

After years of disappointment, fans and collectors of the Kansas City Royals have reason for hope. With a roster of young talent, the team is shaping into a playoff contender with plenty of potential stars and prospects to collect.

Since their entry into the league in 1969, the Royals have won six division titles, two American League pennants and one World Series championship. All of their success came within a ten year period between 1976 and 1985. The talent on those rosters included Cy Young Award winner, Brett Saberhagen, and future Hall of Fame player, George Brett.

With the escalating player contracts the league experienced in the late-1980s and early-1990s, the small market team was forced to rely on continuously developing a new crop of prospects to bolster their roster. By the time the club's emerging stars reach free agency, their value on the market often exceeds the team's ability to pay. Such was the case for players like Jermaine Dye, Johnny Damon and Carlos Beltran, to name a few.

Luckily for fans and collectors, the Royal's scouting staff and farm system are one of the best in baseball. Their ability to identify, acquire and develop homegrown talent has not only made them competitive but has them on the path to be a potential contender in the near future. With a core group of young players that includes Billy Butler, Alex Gordon and Eric Hosmer, the team is poised for an eventual playoff run.
