Babe Ruth Baseball Cards: The Ultimate Collector’s Guide

Most Valuable Babe Ruth Baseball Cards

Babe Ruth baseball cards are arguably the most sought after cards in the entire hobby.

It's easy to understand why:

He is the game's most iconic player and the face of America's past time.

"The Bambino" started his 22 year Major League career in 1914 as a pitcher for the Boston Red Sox.

But it was from 1920 to 1935 as an outfielder for the New York Yankees where he built his legend into what it is today.

The kind of hitting numbers that the "Sultan of Swat" put up would be nearly unheard of today.

His popularity was off the charts during his playing career and many different companies of all kinds issued cards with him on it. There are dozens and dozens of different Babe Ruth cards out there to collect.

1963 Topps Pete Rose Rookie Card: The Ultimate Collector’s Guide

1963 Topps Pete Rose Rookie Card Collectors Guide

The 1963 Topps Pete Rose rookie card is arguably the most recognizable and important baseball card of the 1960's.

Nolan Ryan's 1969 Topps rookie card gives it a run for its money but if you ask most collectors they'd probably side with Rose.

Debating aside, there is no doubt that Rose's rookie is extremely sought after and one of the most valuable baseball cards in the hobby.

To help you learn about the ins and outs of this popular baseball card, here is a comprehensive guide that covers the key things you should know before you buy.

I still remember that 1994 season when he finished with an incredible .394 batting average...man he could hit!

But I never did quite get a hold of any of his rookie cards...

And this guide I go over everything you need to know about collecting Gwynn's rookie cards.
