When Upper Deck launched golf trading cards in 2001, collectors were definitely focused on chasing Tiger, but there was also a lot of interest in a fiery young Spaniard named Sergio Garcia. Many golf fans who made Sergio Garcia the focus of their collections waited and waited for him to capture and elusive major championship. At the 2017 Masters, Sergio delivered a true championship performance and the interest in Sergio’s rookie cards was renewed. Here’s a look back at the two most desirable rookie cards from Sergio Garcia produced by Upper Deck in 2001.
2001 Upper Deck Sergio Garcia #3 – This card is relatively easy to obtain, but values on graded copies in pristine condition definitely carry a premium.
2001 SP Authentic Sergio Garcia #63 – There are only 900 total copies of this card and each of them includes a signature of Sergio so this is definitely “the” rookie card of Sergio Garcia to have, but many are in private collections now so availability on them can be tough.
There is a variety of other fun content of Sergio Garcia available from 2001 Upper Deck golf products available at a variety of price points. Here are just some of our favorites.
