Rickey Henderson and his top 3 rookie cards

For some of the best sports card auctions currently listed ending today, check out our Daily Auctions page, which is updated frequently!

Known as one of the greatest leadoff hitters to play professional baseball, Rickey Henderson probably deserves more accoladed than he actually receives.

The “Man of Steal” stole 1,406 career bases while hitting 2,295 home runs. He’s a two-time World Series champion and 10-time All-Star.

Some of his rookie cards that are graded a PSA 10 certainly holds value. But there are others to collect for those looking to add to their personal collection.

1. 1980 Topps Rookie Card #482

The one that most high-end collectors will go after is the 1980 Topps rookie card.

While it was produced in the junk wax era, to find one in Gem Mint or Pristine condition is very diffcult. And for the ones that are, expect to pay tens of thousands.

2. 1979 TCMA Rookie Card #9

Technically a pre-rookie card, this one shows a young Henderson in his Ogden A’s uniform (the AAA affiliate of the Oakland Athletics).

It’s not easy to find but more affordable than the aforementioned Topps rookie card in Gem Mint condition.

3. 1981 Donruss Baseball Card

Now this is technically not a rookie card as it was printed in 1981. But it’s part of an early Donruss set that’s hard to find a Henderson card in good condition.

It also features him in a classic bat over shoulder pose with a nice red and white border that matches a PSA graded card nicely.
