Barry Bonds remains one of the more controversial players in Major League Baseball with a big asterisk for many especially during his latter years of playing professionally.
Nevertheless, Bonds’ stats are remarkable and his rookie cards still have value.
Here are his best rookie cards to collect with links provided to take you to the eBay listings.
1. 1986 Topps Traded Tiffany Rookie Card
Arguably his most popular rookie card, the 1986 Topps Traded Tiffany rookie card has a nice profile shot of Barry Bonds with his striped Pittsburgh Pirates hat.
This Topps Traded Tiffany card in PSA 10 is currently valued in the thousands.
But the non-Tiffany cards are much more affordable.
2. 1986 Donruss ‘The Rookies’ Rookie Card
For collectors looking to add a more affordable PSA 10 graded rookie card of Barry Bonds, the Donruss set is where to find one.
He’s part of “The Rookies” subset with the distinctive green border, and a perfectly graded one is still available for quite a bit less than the aforementioned Topps Traded Tiffany rookie cards.
3. 1987 Topps Tiffany Rookie Card #320
Not to be confused with the Topps Traded Tiffany, this one is not as valuable but still has considerable worth.
For Canadian collectors, the design and look of the wood panel bordered card looks identical to the O-Pee-Chee brand.
