There are plenty of rookie cards for Bryce Harper who was highly touted as a Washington National’s top prospect when he was just a teenager.
Here’s our top 3 for the following reasons:
2011 Bowman Chrome Prospect Autograph #BCP111
You’ll see a common trend with collectors always looking to have the Bowman Chrome Prospect autographed card of recent players as part of their collection.
The value of these cards seems to hold well as long as the top prospect performs to his ability and can increase sometimes exponentially if the player exceeds his already lofty initial expectations.
And since these cards also come with various colored refractors that are serial numbered, the potential value of his rookie card can even climb higher.
Value (as of Feb. 2017): $750 (BGS Graded 9.5/10 base auto)
2010 Bowman Draft Aflac Autograph #BH
Autographed? Check. Serial numbered? Check. A great profile shot smiling directly into the camera? Check.
This is one of his earlier autographed cards that you can get and it’s numbered to just 230. A nice added touch is the autograph is also personalized with his jersey number 34. It doesn’t hurt that it’s also on-card, which is far superior than a sticker auto.
Value (as of Feb. 2017): $1,400 (BGS Graded 9.5/10)
2012 Topps Chrome Autograph #BH
For those looking to pay far less for a nice rookie card, look no further than the one issued by Topps Chrome.
It’s a great action shot with his facial expression pretty much saying everything you need to know at how hard he plays day in and day out.
It’s autographed on-card and some like that it has the ‘RC’ identifier on the card too.
Value (as of Feb. 2017): $400 (BGS Graded 9.5/10)
