Although it is extremely difficult to locate, the true Rookie Card for Robin Roberts hails from the 1948 Philadelphia Bulletin issue. The earliest mainstream card depicting Roberts appears within the 1949 Bowman baseball set. In addition, a popular stamp picturing Roberts was included within the 1949 Eureka Sportstamps series. Also produced during the 1949 baseball season, the Sealtest card of Roberts is an extremely difficult one to find. Finally, an equally rare Roberts card originates from the 1949 Lumis Peanut Butter set.
