Rickey Henderson’s Iconic 1980 Topps Rookie Baseball Card!!!

Ask any collector to give you their ‘Top 5′ rookie cards to own from the 1980’s and the odds are pretty good that the 1980 Topps Rickey Henderson rookie card makes the list more often than not.

A classic design and great photo have kept this iconic card as a collecting goal for many almost 30 years after it’s release to the hobby.

Topps did a great job with this one…  Perfect photo choice.  Perfect colors used on the banners to compliment Rickey’s uniform.  And a perfect facsimile signature of one of the game’s brightest stars!!

  1. Probably my best Listia find was this card for 2000 credits a year or so ago. It’s a classic, all right.

  2. I dont have one, maybe someday.. I do have guys like Puckett and Raines though… Bo Jackson is probably my top player to own of the 80s in terms of rookies… Mattingly, Boggs, Sandberg and Eric Davis are a few others…

  3. Yup! One of my favorite cards in the collection.
