So much is said this 2017 season about the current favorite to win the American League rookie of the year award. 

So much is said this 2017 season about the current favorite to win the American League rookie of the year award.

And undoubtedly his rookie cards are a hot commodity.

Here’s the top 3 we like best and would be a great addition to any collector and Yankee fan’s set.

His regular rookie card in the 2017 Topps Heritage set is shared by fellow teammate Tyler Austin.

The dual-player card is reminiscent of the 1968 Topps set, which is nice but what’s even better is the photo variation of the card.

That version has Aaron Judge by himself and is far more rare.

Value (as of June 2018): $600 (PSA 10)

It’s always nice to have the rookie card from Topps flagship set (Series 1) with the RC designated on the card itself.

This card featuring an action shot of Judge is relatively easy to get and priced affordably.

For those who want something a little fancier, there are a number of refractor versions.

Value (as of June 2018): $35 (BGS 9.5)

Any collector of autographed rookie cards has to look at whether the player has signed his Bowman Chrome Draft card.

Judge has his card autographed in the 2013 set, which has all of a sudden become very popular because of his breakout season.

His card was worth less than $100 before the season began. Now? It’s worth a lot more.

Value (as of June 2018): $899 base autograph (BGS Graded 9.5/10)

While not as valuable as the 2013 Bowman Chrome Draft baseball card, this one is a rookie card in the true sense of the word.

This card came out in his full breakout rookie season. It has his autograph and the RC symbol on card.

Value (as of June 2018): $399 base autograph (BGS Graded 9.5/10)
