So Topps released what a superfractor baseball card of Shohei Ohtani looks like on Twitter.
The release of the highly anticipated 2018 Bowman Baseball set next week means one thing for most collectors – the hope of finding a prospect/rookie autograph card.

It’s an incredible feat of pure strength and as Harper continues to prove he’s worth all the accolades he’s been getting since he was a top prospect, any of his autographed rookie cards will continue to rise in value.
