About The Card
Ah yes, the shared rookie card. While most collectors can tolerate a Jerry Koosman hanging around with a 1968 Topps Nolan Ryan, or even Bob Bonner and Jeff Schneider with Cal Ripken with a 1982 Topps Traded...but three other players on Willie Stargell's rookie card? That's tough to swallow.
Nevertheless, here we are. And, it's tough to say if a quad Rookie Stars card really hurts the value of a Willie Stargell rookie card, but I would think the card is doing just fine—a PSA 8 has recently been going for at least $1K.
The sad thing is, not only does Stargell need to share his rookie with other players, but his isn't even the best card in the set, as Pete Rose (while also a "rookie star" with three others on card #537) takes that title.
