Nicknamed “Flip” and the “Hebrew Hammer”, Al Rosen baseball cards remain popular.  He was drafted as an amateur free agent in 1942, debuted professionally as a third basemen in 1947, and played his entire 10-year career with the Cleveland Indians during which time he had a number of accomplishments.  Al Rosen drove in more than 100 runs for five consecutive years, led the league in home runs and RBIs twice, was voted as Most Valuable Player, and was a four-time All-Star.  Known for being a solid player with integrity, some Al Rosen baseball cards still go for a good price.  Today, the 1950 Bowman #232 rookie card with a grade of PSA EX 5 sells between $60 and $100 and the 1954 Red Heart #25 Al Rosen SP brings a price around $75.  While playing for the Cleveland Indians, he won a World Series ring for being a reserve to Ken Keltner, the regular third baseman but when Keltner was traded in 1950, Rosen became the starting third baseman and led the American League with 37 home runs and hit more than any prior rookie in the league.  By 1955, he was ranked among the top 10 for at-bats per home run, as well as walks, and sacrifice walks and while his career ended in 1956 due to physical problems, collectors still search for his cards online and through local vendors.  These are just a few of the many reason Al Rosen cards are so valuable.  One of the reasons he is so popular is because he is one of the greatest Jewish baseball players of all-time.  Much like Jackie Robinson, Al Rosen has become an iconic figure with the Jewish community.  Al Rosen baseball cards are very undervalued and are worth buying at their current levels.  here is a list of some of the best Al Rosen baseball cards of all-time.
