Joe Panik has come out of nowhere to be a driving force for the Giants this season. Two very popular Joe Panik baseball cards are 2011 Bowman draft edition and the 2013 Topps debut baseball card. Values obviously are not high, but worth a look.
Watching game 4 of the World Series tonight, I am witnessing a true star in the making – Joe Panik. I amazes me at how young kids like this can maintain poise in big games like this. Let’s face it, it does not bigger then the World Series.
Panik can play defense, do the little things (bunt when needed), and then he goes and drives a big double to left center, to knock in 2 runs , off a tough lefty pitcher by the way.
To the left is the 2013 Topps debut baseball card. This would be considered a rookie card, you can buy it by clicking here.
This 2011 Bowman Panik baseball card, would be considered his ‘true’ rookie card, and the price is right to get it one now. If this kid continues to blossom, who knows what the future holds.
Talk about a fast start to a career, Panik made his MLB debut in June, batting near the bottom of the Giants order. Where does he find himself now? Batting second just ahead of Buster Posey in the World Series!

Here’s a couple popular Pablo Sandoval baseball cards. Affectionately knows as ‘Panda’ for obvious reasons , I mean take a look at the guy, he is like big cuddly Panda (aww so cute). Seriously though, opposing teams do not find him cute at all!
First, the 2006 Topps Heritage Pablo Sandoval rookie card. The Heritage series is really a favorite of mine, the throwback style to days past. Value is about 5 dollars.
Sandoval is the third baseman for the Giants, switch hitter, and is known to come up big in the clutch. Sandoval hit at a .400 clip in the 2014 LCS. Standing at 5’11” and weighing in at 245, he is an intimating mountain of a man.
The 2006 Bowman rookie card of Sandoval is also a wise choice for collectors. It does not have as much eye appeal to me as the Heritage, but will increase in value over time.
Sandoval no doubt is one of the most popular Giants in San Francisco , he is hard nosed type player who always gives 100% every time he takes the field.
