Gary Sanchez Rookie Cards Header

By Ryan Cracknell | Hobby Editor

At the start of the 2016 season, Gary Sanchez was one of the top prospects in the Yankees system. Still, there wasn’t a lot of mainstream buzz surrounding him. Even at the All-Star Break, the catcher wasn’t generating a ton of chatter. But then a funny thing happened and home runs started ripping off the rookie’s bat at a record pace. And interest in Gary Sanchez Rookie Cards grew.

So what are his rookies and cards to watch? We’ve got you covered.

Because he appeared in a pair of games for the New York Yankees at the end of 2015, Gary Sanchez Rookie Cards are found in 2016 products. However, his first appearances on cards came back in 2010, not long after he signed with New York.

The Best Gary Sanchez Cards

The most valuable Gary Sanchez cards isn’t officially a Rookie. It’s an insert. The 2010 Bowman Chrome Gary Sanchez autograph trumps everything else he has out. His first MLB autograph card, it comes from one of the hobby’s most popular and important lines. Signed on-card, it has everything going for it including the Yankees uniform and lots of Refractors.

2010 Bowman Chrome Prospect Autographs Gary Sanchez

Sanchez also has a regular Prospects insert in 2010 Bowman Chrome. While not as valuable, it’s much more accessible.

Sitting between the two is the 2010 Bowman Sterling Gary Sanchez. The catcher doesn’t have an autograph in that set or any other 2010 Bowman releases (which adds to the significance of the the Chrome autograph). However, the Bowman Sterling Prospects card is much tougher to come by. As a result, it commands a premium over the regular Chrome card.

Sanchez also has an autograph in 2010 Donruss Elite Extra Edition. Because it’s not licensed by MLB, it’s cheaper than the Bowman Chrome autograph. The sticker used for the signature also hurts the appeal for some. However, it does come serial numbered and the photo is the same one used on the 2010 Bowman Sterling Gary Sanchez card.

As far as actual Gary Sanchez Rookie Cards go, so far they’re all very affordable. They come in sets that are accessible. So far, none are short prints, either. This is another tip off that his emergence was something of a surprise. Another is the fact that he doesn’t have any autographs in 2016 sets so far. If you’re looking for something with more value, look to the inserts and parallels.

Below is a gallery of the Gary Sanchez Rookie Cards released so far followed by a breakdown of his top prospect cards.

    Why no mention of his cards in different ONYX releases?? You have Donruss listed, and those aren’t licensed….Onyx had materials and hard signed autos..

      We’re merely highlighting his key stuff. As far as prospect cards go, his most popular cards are from 2010. There’s lots of other great stuff from 2011 to 2015 but they don’t carry the same significance as his 2010 cards.

    The guy is super hot and the season will end soon so chances are his name will be mega popular all winter. My advice, if you have them sell high as soon as you can and if you don’t have them it’s too late for a good buy. If you wait too long too sell now or if you are first buying at peak you are betting that he will have the same superstar performance next year and you will make even more money. I don’t like to bet, if you are holding take your profits now and you won’t care what he does next year. LOL.

    On a side note, doesn’t he look just like A-Rod on a couple of those cards? Yes he does.

    How about the 2016 Topps Now cards ? It records his 1st homer as a rookie, before being known for his record breaking stint.

    Could someone tell me what riokii I should hang on to, or anything that’s 2017-2029.. I’m trying to start a good collection, it has been my favorite hobby since the 90s, but I lost all of my cards in a fire and I’m having a hard time catching in to today’s cards, thank you

    Is there a reason why the 2010 bowman prospects base card isnt listed in the beckett? Other players base is listed along with their auto but not Gary’s.
