Sammy Sosa Minor League Rookie Card

Another interesting one, this time from his amateur days. This is the 1989 Baseball American Minor League Rookie Card from his time on the Tulsa Drillers.

Sammy Sosa Topps Tiffany #692 value

The Sammy Sosa Topps Tiffany card #692 is one of the most sought after cards from this set.  Expect to pay $100 upwards for a grade 9-10

Topps Tiffany cards were printed with a glossy coating and, depending on the year, would often have a white rather than grey background on the rear. 

Topps Tiffany

With a print run of only 15000. Many of these will have been lost or damaged over the years. High quality examples of this card are only likely to go up in value due to the diminished numbers. (that’s my opinion of course: do your own research..).

 The card features a young Sammy Sosa in his Chicago White Sox uniform. The Topps Tiffany set is one of the most popular sets among collectors and the Sammy Sosa card is one of the most valuable cards from the 1990 set.

Topps Tiffany

If you’re a baseball card collector, then you know that the Topps Tiffany set is one of the most desirable sets out there. And if you’re a Sammy Sosa fan, then the Topps Tiffany card featuring the young slugger should perhaps be near the top of your want list. 

Where to purchase Sammy Sosa Baseball cards

If you’re looking to add Sammy Sosa baseball cards to your collection, there are a few different places you can check out. First, take a look at online auction and marketplace sites like eBay and Etsy. You can also check out hobby shops or sports card stores in your area.

If you’re willing to pay a little bit more, there are also companies that specialize in selling sports cards. These companies usually have a wide selection of cards available, so you’re sure to find what you’re looking for. The market place on Beckett is a good option too.

No matter where you decide to buy, be sure to do your research before making a purchase. If you are looking a long term hold then a graded card is a good option. Alternatively, the real way to add value is to find an ungraded card that is in mint condition and then pay to get it professionally graded.
