1993 Upper Deck Manny Ramirez

I picked up a 1993 Upper Deck Manny Ramirez Rookie Card on eBay for a grand total of 14 cents. I’m no Manny fan, but for that price how can you go wrong? I like the 1993 Upper Deck set. That set also has rookie cards of Jeter and Delgado. I already have a handful of these Ramirez cards, but I have a thing for them I guess. This photo was taken long before Manny was being Manny. Here, Manny was just a bright-eyed youngster who wanted to make it to the bigs. Well, he made it. In this photo, you might notice that Manny is holding someone else’s bat. It looks like the first name is Clyde. Also, you can see billboards for Trimco, Days Inn, and Remax. I found that to be sort of interesting.


  1. It's a beauty of a card and for $0.14 you can't go wrong, but Ramirez did appear in 1992 Bowman, Topps and Pinnacle so I don't know if it qualifies as a rookie per se. Delgado also appeared in 1992 products.

  2. 1992 Bowman was a great product. It had a bunch of great rookies that other brands didn't have until 1993.
