Collecting “Rookie” Cards of Boxing’s Biggest Stars: A Guide for Investors

It might be hard to believe in this brave new world of fan-less live sports, but the trading card market is red-hot again. New retail card products sell out fast and increase in value even faster in the collector aftermarket. Mike Trout’s 2011 rookie cards have experienced meteoric growth while a mint condition 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle recently sold for more than five million dollars.

New baseball and basketball cards drive a speculative, volatile market. Valuable Juan Soto, Ronald Acuna and Fernando Tatis Jr. cards motivate collectors, breakers and investors. Zion Williamson rookie cards are a global phenomenon. Derek Jeter rookie cards are spiking. So too are rookie cards of Wayne Gretzky and Michael Jordan. Tom Brady is the greatest quarterback in NFL history and his short printed rookie cards (issued in 2000) reflect this in their high prices.

But what about boxing cards? While not nearly as popular or well distributed as other sports cards, boxing cards do exist. Let’s take a look at ten of boxing’s top stars and explore their rookie cards. We’ll identify the card in question and investigate its value and its availability.

Floyd Mayweather Jr.: Who better to start with than the undefeated money man of boxing? For collectors looking to add Mayweather’s valuable rookie card to their collection, look no further than his 1997 Brown’s Boxing card (#51) featuring a young Floyd, a flag, and the Brown’s corner stool logo. While not rare by contemporary standards, graded mint examples of the card can be found offered on Ebay with outrageous “buy it now” prices. In reality, the card can be purchased for less than a grand at major memorabilia shows or at the IBHOF’s annual boxing card show.

Manny Pacquiao: Unlike Mayweather, whose rookie card was released a year after he made his professional debut, Manny Pacquiao had to wait a few years before his rookie card came out inserted in a Japanese magazine with three other boxing cards. The 1999 Japan World Boxing card (#143) features a young Pacquiao in a boxing stance with “MP” on his trunks. The words “Manny Pacquiao” and “flyweight” are presented in English while the rest of the card is in Japanese. Condition sensitive because the card had to be hand cut from the others, it’s harder to find than the Mayweather rookie card and you can expect to pay nearly twice as much.

Anthony Joshua: The unified, two-time world heavyweight champion made his professional debut in 2013, a year after winning a gold medal at the 2012 Olympics in London. The Italian card manufacturer Panini issued a special boxed set that year called Adrenalyn XL London Olympics. The 350-card set was the official set of the 2012 games. Card #96 features a smiling AJ wearing an Olympic style jacket. Expect to pay a couple hundred for a clean mint copy.

Mike Tyson: Retired from active competition since 2005, Iron Mike boxed to a friendly draw with Roy Jones Jr. last year in boxing’s biggest PPV event of 2020. In 1986, Panini issued Tyson’s rookie card in their multi-sport Panini Supersport set. The card (#153) is actually a sticker and it was only distributed in Europe. It shows Tyson being interviewed. Ungraded, you will pay at least a hundred bucks for it while graded mint copies can sell for close to a thousand dollars.

Tyson Fury: The reigning WBC heavyweight champion debuted back in 2008. The wait for his rookie card took more than a decade. In 2020, Topps produced the first known trading card of Fury in their Topps NOW line commemorating sporting events in real time. After Fury defeated Deontay Wilder in February of 2020, a card was created by Topps depicting Fury, arms raised with his newly won green belt upon his shoulder. It reads: “Gypsy King Takes The Crown” and lists the date of the fight, 22/02/20. There were only 628 copies of the card made by Topps, making it somewhat of a bargain with current asking prices usually less than a hundred dollars.

Canelo Alvarez: Boxing’s best fighter began his career in 2005. Like Fury, it would take a while for a rookie card of Alvarez to be issued. In 2014, the California based Upper Deck created two Alvarez cards in two different sets, Upper Deck 25th Anniversary and Upper Deck Goodwin Champions. The Anniversary card (#61) is reminiscent of UD’s famous Ken Griffey Jr. rookie card while the decorative Goodwin Champions card (#13) depicts Alvarez at a weigh-in. Both cards are readily available and neither should set a collector back more than $50 for either card.

Gennady Golovkin: Ten years after his debut in 2006, the former unified middleweight champion saw his rookie card issued by Topps in their 2016 Allen & Ginter release. The popular hybrid set features mostly baseball players but also stars from other sports who don’t necessarily have any other mainstream cards to collect. Golovkin’s card (#161) is classy in its design and can be found, like the Alvarez cards, for less than fifty dollars in mint condition.

Errol Spence Jr.: One of the hottest young world champions boxing, Spence made his debut in 2012. Six years later in 2018, Leaf Trading Cards produced Spence’s rookie card and distributed it at the National Sports Collectors Convention in Cleveland. The truth is, the attractively designed card is by no means rare or hard to find. Don’t pay more than five dollars for one.

Roy Jones Jr.: Released just two years after his pro debut in 1989, RJ’s 1991 Kayo card was the first of many cards issued during his Hall of Fame career. Unfortunately, due to massive overproduction, Roy’s rookie card (#116) is effectively worthless and will likely continue to be for some time. Well known to most boxing fans, the Kayo card set was appealing but very plentiful. More valuable and more collectible are the 1993 and 1994 Brown’s Boxing cards of Jones.

Naoya Inoue: The Japanese bantamweight “Monster” debuted professionally in 2012. Two years later, his rookie card was issued in the 2014 Japanese BBM The Champ II set. Dan Rafael recently Tweeted about adding a copy to his impressive collection. Borderless and very attractive, the card (#31) features Inoue posing wearing boxing gloves—and with a WBC title belt on his waist. There is a current listing on Ebay for the card with the seller asking $125 for it.

You might be wondering about stars like Terence Crawford, Teofimo Lopez, and Gervonta “Tank” Davis. What are their rookie cards? Are they worth anything? Sorry to say but they don’t have rookie cards. Not yet anyhow. What they do have are unauthorized, custom made cards. These are often advertised as “rookie cards” but they are really just worthless novelty items. Buyers should beware of such cards and also of counterfeit versions of legitimate cards.

In conclusion, we might not all be able to afford a Mickey Mantle rookie card but any one of us can swing a Micky Ward rookie card. They were issued in 2010, the same year Ward’s biopic “The Fighter” was released in theaters. Sport King’s Ringside Boxing Round One set featured a trifecta of affordable Ward rookie cards; any one of which can be had for just a few bucks each.

Just don’t let your Mom throw them away!

Avila Perspective, Chap. 281: The Devin Haney and Ryan Garcia Show

Published

on

Avila-Perspective-Chap-281-The-Devin-and-Ryan-Show

Over the years bouts between old foes such as Devin Haney and Ryan Garcia tend to be surprising.

Yes, both are only 25 but have known each other for many years.

When undisputed super lightweight champion Haney (31-0, 15 KOs) steps into the prize ring at Barclays Center to meet challenger Garcia (24-1, 20 KOs) on Saturday, April 20, fans will be witnessing the continuation of a feud that began more than a decade ago.

And though the champion is a heavy favorite, familiarity is Garcia’s best weapon heading into their fight on the Golden Boy Promotions card that will be shown on PPV.COM with Jim Lampley and friends. DAZN pay-per-view is also streaming the card.

In many ways Haney and Garcia have ventured down the same path. From amateur sensations to fighting in Mexico while teens to asking for the biggest challenges available.

“Whichever version of Ryan shows up on April 20, I will be ready for him. Ryan Garcia is just another opponent to me,” said Haney who holds the WBC super lightweight title after his win over Regis Prograis.

The first time I saw Haney as a pro he battled the dangerous Mexican contender Juan Carlos Burgos at Pechanga Resort and Casino in Temecula. It was an impressive performance against a fighter who fought three times for a world title.

Haney was 19 at the time.

My first look at Garcia as a pro was in his first bout in the U.S. when he met Puerto Rico’s Jonathan Cruz at the Exchange in downtown Los Angeles. The Boricua looked at Garcia and tried intimidating him with stares, taunts and the usual patter. During the fight both swung and missed until the second round when Garcia zeroed in and took him out.

Garcia had just turned 18, the legal age to fight in California.

Both fighters did not have the Olympics credentials that lead to fame. But their talent has allowed them to fight through the dense smoke that is professional boxing.

Haney has defeated numerous world champions such as Prograis, Vasyl Lomachenko and George Kambosos Jr., while Garcia has stopped champions Javier Fortuna and Luke Campbell.

As amateurs, Garcia and Haney battled six times with each winning three.

“They know each other very well,” said Oscar De La Hoya of Golden Boy Promotions. “Ryan is going to beat Devin Haney.”

Haney has a buttery-smooth style with one of the best jabs in boxing. He’s very adept at keeping distance and not allowing anyone to fight him inside. His reflexes are outstanding, yet he seldom fights inside. That’s his weakness.

Garcia fights tall and has superb hand speed and a lightning quick left hook. Though his defense lacks tightness his ability to rip off three-punch combinations in a blink of an eye pauses opponents from bullying their way inside.

“These guys always just look at me and look at me like I don’t know how to box,” said Garcia on social media. “Why was I one of the best fighters in the amateurs. Why was I a 15-time National champion…why did I beat everyone I came across.”

Haney is a strong favorite by oddsmakers to defeat Garcia. But you can never tell when it comes to fighters that know each other well and are athletically gifted.

When Sergio Mora challenged Vernon Forrest he was a big underdog. When Tim Bradley fought Manny Pacquiao the first time, he was also the underdog. And when Andy Ruiz met Anthony Joshua few gave him a chance.

Haney and Garcia have history in the ring. It should be an interesting battle.

PPV.COM

Jim Lampley will be leading the broadcast on PPV.COM for the Haney-Garcia card at Barclays and texting with fans on the card live. He will be accompanied by journalists Lance Pugmire, Dan Conobbio and former champion Chris Algieri.

Diaz and Masvidal will be boxing against each other in a grudge match on June 1 at the KIA Forum in Inglewood, Calif. The two MMA stars met five years at UFC 244 with Masvidal winning by TKO over Diaz due to cuts.

This is a grudge match, but under boxing rules.

Boxing Odds and Ends: The Heavyweight Merry-Go-Round

Boxing Odds and Ends: The Heavyweight Merry-Go-Round

There were few surprises when co-promoters Eddie Hearn and Frank Warren and their benefactor HE Turki Alalshikh held a press conference in London this past Monday to unveil the undercard for the Beterbiev-Bivol show at Riyadh, Saudi Arabia on June 1. Most of the match-ups had already been leaked.

For die-hard boxing fans, Beterbiev-Bivol is such an enticing fight that it really doesn’t need an attractive undercard. Two undefeated light heavyweights will meet with all four relevant belts on the line in a contest where the oddsmakers straddled the fence. It’s a genuine “pick-‘em” fight based on the only barometer that matters, the prevailing odds.

But Beterbiev-Bivol has been noosed to a splendid undercard, a striking contrast to Saturday’s Haney-Garcia $69.99 (U.S.) pay-per-view in Brooklyn, an event where the undercard, in the words of pseudonymous boxing writer Chris Williams, is an absolute dumpster fire.

The two heavyweight fights that will bleed into Beterbiev-Bivol, Hrgovic vs. Dubois and Wilder vs. Zhang, would have been stand-alone main events before the incursion of Saudi money.

Hrgovic-Dubois

Filip Hrgovic (17-0, 13 KOs) and Daniel Dubois (20-2, 19 KOs) fought on the same card in Riyadh this past December. Hrgovic, the Croatian, was fed a softie in the form of Australia’s Mark De Mori who he dismissed in the opening round. Dubois, a Londoner, rebounded from his loss to Oleksandr Usyk with a 10th-round stoppage of corpulent Jarrell “Big Baby” Miller.

There’s an outside chance that Hrgovic vs. Dubois may be sanctioned by the IBF for the world heavyweight title.

The May 18 showdown between Oleksandr Usyk and Tyson Fury has a rematch clause. The IBF is next in line in the rotation system for a unified heavyweight champion and the organization has made it plain that the winner of Usyk-Fury must fulfill his IBF mandatory before an intervening bout.

The best guess is that the Usyk-Fury winner will relinquish the IBF belt. If so, Hrgovic and Dubois may fight for the vacant title although a more likely scenario is that the organization will keep the title vacant so that the winner can fight Anthony Joshua.

Wilder-Zhang

The match between Deontay Wilder (43-3-1, 42 KOs) and Zhilei Zhang (26-2-1, 21 KOs) is a true crossroads fight as both Wilder, 38, and Zhang, who turns 41 in May, are nearing the end of the road and the loser (unless it’s a close and entertaining fight) will be relegated to the rank of a has-been. In fact, Wilder has hinted that this may be his final rodeo.

Both are coming off a loss to Joseph Parker.

Wilder last fought on the card that included Hrgovic and Dubois and was roundly out-pointed by a man he was expected to beat. It’s a quick turnaround for Zhang who opposed Parker on March 8 and lost a majority decision.

Other Fights

Either of two other fights may steal the show on the June 1 event.

Raymond Ford (15-0-1, 8 KOs) meets Nick Ball (19-0-1, 11 KOs) in a 12-round featherweight contest. New Jersey’s Ford will be defending the WBA world title he won with a come-from-behind, 12th-round stoppage of Otabek Kholmatov in an early contender for Fight of the Year. Liverpool’s “Wrecking” Ball, a relentless five-foot-two sparkplug, had to settle for a draw in his title fight with Rey Vargas despite winning the late rounds and scoring two knockdowns.

Hamzah Sheeraz (19-0, 15 KOs) meets fellow unbeaten Austin “Ammo” Williams (16-0, 11 KOs) in a 12-round middleweight match. East London’s Sheeraz, the son of a former professional cricket player, is unknown in the U.S. although he trained for his recent fights at the Ten Goose Boxing Gym in California. Riding a skein of 13 straight knockouts, he has a date with WBO title-holder Janibek Alimkhanuly if he can get over this hurdle.

The Forgotten Heavyweight

“Unbeaten for seven years, the man nobody wants to fight,” intoned ring announcer Michael Buffer by way of introduction. Buffer was referencing Michael Hunter who stood across the ring from his opponent Artem Suslenkov.

This scene played out this past Saturday in Tashkent, Uzbekistan. It was Hunter’s second fight in three weeks. On March 23, he scored a fifth-round stoppage of a 46-year-old meatball at a show in Zapopan, Mexico.

The second-generation “Bounty Hunter,” whose only defeat prior to last weekend came in a 12-rounder with Oleksandr Usyk, has been spinning his wheels since TKOing the otherwise undefeated Martin Bakole on the road in London in 2018. Two fights against hapless opponents on low-budget cards in Mexico and a couple of one-round bouts for the Las Vegas Hustle, an entry in the fledgling and largely invisible Professional Combat League, are the sum total of his activity, aside from sparring, in the last two-and-a-half years.

Hunter’s chances of getting another big-money fight took a tumble in Tashkent where he lost a unanimous decision in a dull affair to the unexceptional Suslenkov who was appearing in his first 10-round fight. The scores of the judges were not announced.

You won’t find this fight listed on boxrec. As Jake Donovan notes, the popular website will not recognize a fight conducted under the auspices of a rogue commission. (Another fight you won’t find on boxrec for the same reason is Nico Ali Walsh’s 6-round split decision over the 9-2-1 Frenchman, Noel Lafargue, in the African nation of Guinea on Dec. 16, 2023. You can find it on YouTube, but according to boxrec, boxing’s official record-keeper, it never happened.)

Anderson-Merhy Redux

The only thing missing from this past Saturday’s match in Corpus Christi, Texas, between Jared Anderson and Ryad Merhy was the ghost of Robert Valsberg.

Valsberg, aka Roger Vaisburg, was the French referee who disqualified Ingemar Johansson for not trying in his match with LA’s Ed Sanders in the finals of the heavyweight competition at the 1952 Helsinki Olympics. Valsberg tossed Johansson out of the ring after two rounds and Johansson was denied the silver medal. The Swede redeemed himself after turning pro, needless to say, when he demolished Floyd Patterson in the first of their three meetings.

Merhy was credited with throwing only 144 punches, landing 34, over the course of the 10 rounds. Those dismal figures yet struck many onlookers as too high. (This reporter has always insisted that the widely-quoted CompuBox numbers should be considered approximations.)

Whatever the true number, it was a disgraceful performance by Merhy who actually showed himself to have very fast hands on the few occasions when he did throw a punch. With apologies to Delfine Persoon, a spunky lightweight, U.S. boxing promoters should think twice before inviting another Belgian boxer to our shores.

Anderson Cruises by Vapid Merhy and Ajagba edges Vianello in Texas

Published

on

Anderson-Cruises-by-Vapid-Merhy-and-Ajagba-Edges-Vianello-in-Texas

Jared Anderson returned to the ring tonight on a Top Rank card in Corpus Christi, Texas. Touted as the next big thing in the heavyweight division, Anderson (17-0, 15 KOs) hardly broke a sweat while cruising past Ryad Merhy in a bout with very little action, much to the disgruntlement of the crowd which started booing as early as the second round. The fault was all Merhy as he was reluctant to let his hands go. Somehow, he won a round on the scorecard of judge David Sutherland who likely fell asleep for a round for which he could be forgiven.

Merhy, born in the Ivory Coast but a resident of Brussels, Belgium, was 32-2 (26 KOs) heading in after fighting most of his career as a cruiserweight. He gave up six inches in height to Anderson who was content to peck away when it became obvious to him that little would be coming back his way.

Anderson may face a more daunting adversary on Monday when he has a court date in Romulus, Michigan, to answer charges related to an incident in February where he drove his Dodge Challenger at a high rate speed, baiting the police into a merry chase. (Weirdly, Anderson entered the ring tonight wearing the sort of helmet that one associates with a race car driver.)

Co-Feature

In the co-feature, a battle between six-foot-six former Olympians, Italy’s Guido Vianello started and finished strong, but Efe Ajagba had the best of it in the middle rounds and prevailed on a split decision. Two of the judges favored Ajagba by 96-94 scores with the dissenter favoring the Italian from Rome by the same margin.

Vianello had the best round of the fight. He staggered Ajagba with a combination in round two. At the end of the round, a befuddled Ajagba returned to the wrong corner and it appeared that an upset was brewing. But the Nigerian, who trains in Las Vegas under Kay Koroma, got back into the fight with a more varied offensive attack and better head movement. In winning, he improved his ledger to 20-1 (14). Vianello, who sparred extensively with Daniel Dubois in London in preparation for this fight, declined to 12-2-1 in what was likely his final outing under the Top Rank banner.

Other Bouts of Note

In the opening bout on the main ESPN platform, 35-year-old super featherweight Robson Conceicao, a gold medalist for Brazil in the 2016 Rio Olympics, stepped down in class after fighting Emanuel Navarrete tooth-and-nail to a draw in his previous bout and scored a seventh-round stoppage of Jose Ivan Guardado who was a cooked goose after slumping to the canvas after taking a wicked shot to the liver. Guardado made it to his feet, but the end was imminent and the referee waived it off at the 2:27 mark.

Conceicao improved to 18-1 (9 KOs). It was the U.S. debut for Guardado (15-2-1), a boxer from Ensenada, Mexico who had done most of his fighting up the road in Tijuana.

Ruben Villa, the pride of Salinas, California, improved to 22-1 (7) and moved one step closer to a match with WBC featherweight champion Rey Vargas with a unanimous 10-round decision over Tijuana’s Cristian Cruz (22-7-1). The judges had it 97-93 and 98-92 twice.

Cruz, the son of former IBF world featherweight title-holder Cristobal Cruz, was better than his record. He entered the bout on a 21-1-1 run after losing five of his first seven pro fights.

Cleveland southpaw Abdullah Mason, who turned 20 earlier this month, continued his fast ascent up the lightweight ladder with a fourth-round stoppage of Ronal Ron.

Mason (13-0, 11 KOs) put Ron on the canvas in the opening round with a short left hook. He scored a second knockdown with a shot to the liver. A flurry of punches, a diverse array, forced the stoppage at the 1:02 mark of round four. A 25-year-old SoCal-based Venezuelan, the spunky but out-gunned Ron declined to 14-6.

Charly Suarez, a 35-year-old former Olympian from the Philippines, ranked #5 at junior lightweight by the IBF, advanced to 17-0 (9) with a unanimous 8-round decision over SoCal’s Louie Coria (5-7).

This was a tactical fight. In the final round, Coria, subbing for 19-0 Henry Lebron, caught the Filipino off-balance and knocked him into the ropes which held him up. It was scored a knockdown, but came too little, too late for Coria who lost by scores of 76-75 and 77-74 twice.

Suarez, whose signature win was a 12th-round stoppage of the previously undefeated Aussie Paul Fleming in Sydney, may be headed to a rematch with Robson Conceicao. They fought as amateurs in 2016 in Kazakhstan and Suarez lost a narrow 6-round decision.
