Bob Gibson’s Top Cards

Bob Gibson Cards

1963 Topps #415 Bob Gibson

The back of the 1963 Topps #415 Bob Gibson throws some slight shade toward the Hall of Famer, as it features a cartoon of him throwing a wild pitch to his catcher, noting that he led the league in walks in 1961. The 1961 season would be the first and only season he would lead the league in walks, and guess what Gibson turned into? A Hall of Famer.

1962 Topps #530 Bob Gibson

The 1962 season was magical for Gibson, who earned his first National League All-Star selection and posted an ERA under 3.00 for the first time in his career. The 1962 Topps #530 is actually a short print, making it almost as rare as Mr. Clean® with hair. That alone increases its value. Happy Hunting!

1961 Topps #211 Bob Gibson

As noted in the card above, Gibson didn’t make his first All-Star Game until 1962. He did, however, notch his first winning season in 1961. The 1961 Topps #211 Bob Gibson is one of “Hoot’s” most valuable and earliest cards.

1959 Topps #514 Bob Gibson

Here we have it! Gibson’s rookie card, 1959 Topps #514 Bob Gibson, is easily his most valuable and one of the most aesthetically pleasing.
