Although he began with Seattle, the majority of his career was spent with the Kansas City Royals and the New York Yankees. Because he wasn’t great on defense, he was primarily a designated hitter throughout his career, which limited his overall value. Nevertheless, Danny put together a solid career worthy of attention from baseball card collectors.
Unlike some popular minor star players from the mid-80’s to mid-90’s, Danny Tartabull has some baseball cards that are actually worth good money. This is because his career was ending around the time when short-print subsets were becoming more popular. This means that there are a good number of Danny Tartabull cards which actually carry some decent price tags.
