George Springer Rookie Card Countdown and More

Share:

If you’re looking for a George Springer Rookie Card right now, interest is at an all-time high. Fresh off helping bring the Houston Astros their first World Series, his profile is high. The fact that he was a spark plug for Houston for much of the postseason raised it more. And that’s even excluding his World Series performance. Also intriguing is the fact that Springer was on the cover of the “called-shot” Sports Illustrated from 2014.

George Springer Rookie Card Countdown

In the weeks ahead, you’re going to be spending more on a George Springer Rookie Card than you would have a short time ago. Things will likely cool a little during the offseason as big-time Astros fans get their fill and the focus shifts to defending that championship. If you’re not a huge Springer fan, you might even shift to seller mode for the time being.

That said, George Springer Rookie Cards are likely to fare better than many other World Series MVPs over the long haul. David Freese, Pablo Sandoval and Pat Borders all won the award. They’re not hobby stars outside of their teams’ core fans (for Sandoval, that might even be a stretch right now).

Still young and part of something special in Houston for years to come, Springer is one of baseball’s more intriguing hitters. He’s a run-producing machine with a knack for big bursts of power. Springer not only showed this with a record-tying five homers in the 2017 World Series, but through much of 2017.

Springer has a lot of tools at his disposal. And while the World Series victory may bring a burst to his cards similar to his pop at the plate, there is more to the outfielder. George Springer Rookie Cards (and his other early issues and autographs) are likely going to be a thing for the long haul as he continues to develop and the Astros continue to contend.

If you’re intrigued by the George Springer Rookie Card roster or you just want to see what’s out there, here’s a countdown based on what’s priced the highest in the Beckett Price Guide. The full George Springer baseball card checklist and price guide can be access here.

In addition to the many George Springer Rookie Cards, there are many valuable autographs and inserts from his first season. Only cards marked with the “RC” tag in the Beckett Baseball Card Database are listed here, not inserts and parallels. Some highlights and key cards from before his MLB debut follow.

5 Key George Springer Pre-Rookie Cards

Like most modern players, George Springer had plenty of cards on the market long before his MLB debut and ensuing Rookie Cards. In fact, these prospect and pre-rookie cards date as far back as 2010 from his time with the USA Baseball program.

These cards aren’t considered traditional Rookie Cards because they’re usually from prospect-focused sets or fall under the insert category. Nonetheless, when you’re looking at George Springer Rookie Cards, they’re an important part of the discussion. Here are a handful of Springer’s key prospect cards, although there are plenty more, both signed and unsigned.
