Sammy Sosa rookie card values were currently in the trash can BUT have been rising as of late… what is behind this rise?… three words… “Long Gone Summer”.
We like the two Sosa Tiffany rookie cards in particular (i.e. Bowman and Topps) to see big gains.

Long Gone Summer is another ESPN documentary following in the footsteps of “The Last Dance” and we all know what MJ rookie cards did once the Last Dance premiered.. we suspect Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa rookie cards to do the same.
On a side note, we really enjoyed the MJ “Last Dance” doc and are really looking forward to this “Long Gome Summer” as well… we just hope the doc does a better job of going in chronological order vs the “Last Dance” that was all over the place at times.
Top 3 Sammy Sosa Rookie Cards
We’ve prepared a checklist for his rookie cards, along with three popular options and an investment outlook for the future.
1990 Sammy Sosa Leaf Rookie Card #220 (buy on eBay)
Here is the most popular Sosa rookie card with collectors and can usually be found up on eBay auctions.
The card shows Slamming Sammy laying down a bunt?! You can’t be serious Clark!
Unfortunately yes that is the case. I guess Sammy was more of a speedster in his early years so maybe it makes sense showing him bunting the ball and then we assume he turns on the afterburners and legs out an infield hit ala, Willie Mays Hayes.
Card Info: Numbered #220 the reverse of the card reads “Sammy won the White Sox’ starting rightfield job in spring training of 1990. From the White Sox’ standpoint, he was the key player in the big trade with Texas July 29, 1989, that sent longtime Chisox favorite Harold Baines to the Rangers. In 1988, Sammy led the Florida State League in triples and was fifth in runs at Port Charlotte. Sammy was 16 years old when he signed with Texas in 1985.
