It looks like there’s already mutual respect between Mike Trout and Shohei Ohtani of the Los Angeles Angels.
And for Angels fans and collectors alike, it’ll be cool to root for these two guys on the same team.
While Mike Trout rookie cards have increased in value, Ohtani’s cards are highly valued now because of the hype.
Only time will tell to see if the Japanese sensation can live up to the hype and see his card’s value increase even further like Trout who is still young yet performing at a consistently high level.
Collectors will have to wait a little longer for this season’s set to come out featuring Ohtani’s autograph rookie cards.
