Up For Grabs: Rickey


I have a massive amount of Rickey Henderson cards to get rid of. He was one of the favorite players of a younger version of myself, but it's been at least 20 years since I've really sought to acquire any of his cards. The sheer volume of his career ensured that no one on earth will run out of Rickey Henderson cards.

As always, the list follows at the end of the post. It's long. With apologies to the Angels, Mets and Dodgers, I am going to list his cards by which team he is depicted with for all you team collectors out there, since the man changed teams an awful lot.


I had totally lost track of Rickey Henderson by the time this card was produced. I had no idea he had played for Boston until I pulled this card from a pack of 2003 Topps.


Rickey briefly played for the latest version of my hometown Portland Beavers in 2001, but never got a chance to actually play a game in Portland. He broke camp with the AAA Padres affiliate that year and they were still putting the finishing touches on the remodel of our stadium, so he played his first home games that year several hours away in a small town in Washington.


This is a great looking card. I have no idea how I kept a nice copy of a 1985 Donruss card for so long. I must have bought it when I was in high school when I was flirting with collecting his stuff.


Rickey played for the Yanks during my formative collecting years. He and Mattingly and Winfield just couldn't get that team to the playoffs.


This is a pretty decent looking card. It's too bad it's a 1990 Score card, meaning that there are 7.8 million other copies of this in existence. He looks old here, and yet would go on to play for another decade and a half.


Virtual Rickey.
