Tiger!

This iconic rookie card features Tiger Woods in his classic “Sunday Red” shirt from just his first year as a professional golfer. Just a year after it was issued in 1996, he would go on to win his first of 15 Majors and became one of the most famous personalities on the planet!

This classic card is only available in perforated form, as it was issued in the Sports Illustrated for Kids magazine in a perforated sheet of 9 total cards. Of course, most kids who received the magazine were so eager to remove the cards, that they didn’t think to do so carefully. Therefore, its tough to find this card in high grade because most examples feature poor edges and centering.

While Tiger was a collegiate and amateur phenom, I don’t know anybody could have predicted his impact on sports and American culture when this card was released in 1996!
