While the baseball card industry has seen its share of ups and downs since the days of overproduction, the same has been kind to the New York Yankees.
For a big-market team with a rich history and tradition of victory, cardboard boasting ballplayers donned in pinstripes can fetch a pretty penny.
In this slideshow, I will highlight seven rookie cards of active Yankees players that fans and collectors should invest in now before prices skyrocket.
As a caveat, please understand this list is not all-encompassing, for each ballplayer has several rookie cards. The cards revealed in this show are popular rookie cards that will not obliterate a blue-collar worker’s pocketbook.
