Value of Don Drysdale Baseball Cards

by on February 25, 2011

Don Drysdale baseball cards are some of the most coveted cards in the hobby.  Dodgers fans can get enough of the baseball Hall of  Famer. Don Drysdale, was one of the best pitcers for the 1960's Dodgers. His career win loss record was 209 - 166 and he later was inducted into the Basebll Hall of Fame. This is why Don Drysdale's rookie card is now commanding a considerable price. His rookie card was released by Topps in 1957 when the Dodgers were still in Brooklyn.

Don Drysdale's rookie card sells in the $150-$200 range and can bring some more than if the condition is good. Some of his other cards following his rookie card drop drastically in price.  Prices will vary based on the condition the cards are in.  Thus you want to examine these cards very carefully when purchasing one.

Many Topps baseball cards use actual photos for the front of the card instead of art renderings that were used with older cards.  Pay attention to the lettering on the hat because you should see a big white B as the Dodger's were still in Brooklyn at this time. Many of these Don Drysdale baseball cards have been autographed.  When looking at Don Drysdale baseball cards take note of the condition of the autograph. This was a time when kids would wrap baseball cards in rubber bands and almost none of them were sleeved. So you want to see things like sun damage and some wear because this shows that it is a real card.


While Don Drysdale baseball cards may not be the major investment many are looking for. It would be a good idea for anyone to pick up one of his rookie cards.  Here s a list of some of the best Don Drysdale baseball cards ever produced.
