Best Denard Span Rookie Cards

by admin on March 10, 2011

Affordable and easy to find, a Denard Span rookie card is a nice choice. Actually, multiple rookie cards exists, adding to the ease of collecting these cards and none cost more than $5. Collectors could choose the 2008 Finest Rookie Redemption #9 Denard Span rookie card, 2008 Topps Heritage #567 Denard Span Rookie Card, or 2008 Upper Deck #718 Denard Span rookie card, among others. These are just a few of Denard Span's best baseball cards.

He began his baseball career in 2002 after being drafted by the Minnesota Twins. For years, he played in the minors but in April of 2008, he made his professional debut against the Kansas City Royals. Unfortunately, without a hit or walk in his three times at bat, he was sent back to the minors but when Michael Cuddyer was injured, Span was called back to the majors to complete the season, which resulted in a final .432 batting average, 6 home runs, 47 RBIs, and 7 triples in 93 games. However, being pulled into the majors meant declining an offer to participate in the 2008 Beijing Olympics. In 2010, Span was offered a multi-million dollar, five-year contract with the Twins although it came with a buyout clause. That same year, he had his first triple and home run at home on Target Field and then tied the current MLB record by hitting three triples in a single game, becoming the 29th player to do so since 1900. Span is a solid player who is still growing in the game but as a left and right-handed thrower, and being an incredible lead-off hitter, anticipation is high for long-term performance. Finding a Span rookie card is as simple as going to eBay or any other sports memorabilia site.

Here is a list of some of the best and most expensive Denard Span rookie cards.  Some of these great baseball cards have been personally autographed which adds even more to their value.  Make sure that you pay close attention to the condition of these cards before you make a purchase.  Cards in premium condition make much better investments than one's that are off grade.
