The 1952 Topps Andy Pafko baseball card is one of the most valuable cards in the iconic ’52 set. Why you may ask? After all Andy Pafko did not put up any impressive numbers, and his card would be considered a ’common’.
What makes the card valuable is that it is the #1 card in the 1952 set. This makes it very rare and hard to find in excellent condition, as collectors would stack the cards numerically, and the Pafko card would suffer the most wear and tear.
If you have ever seen the movie ‘Cop Out’, Bruce Willis had his $10,000 Andy Pafko baseball card stolen, and he searched feverishly for the thugs who took it.
Andy Pafko was a 5x All Star and 1957 World Champion. Pafko is still alive and well at 92 years of age. You can bid on a Andy Pafko baseball card here
