When Ronald Acuna was called up to “The Show” in 2018, the rookie phenom came as advertised displaying both power and speed.
And Acuna should be part of an exciting young core that should help the Atlanta Braves contend in the post-season.
While his top prospect pedigree has increased the value of his autograph rookie cards, it still has the potential to go higher if Acuna is able to reach his full potential.
Here are the three rookie cards we like best.
His 2017 Bowman Chrome autograph rookie card should be on any prospect collector’s list.
And there are a number of colored refractor cards available for those looking for more limited numbered sets.
Plus this rookie card features Acuna in his Braves uniform and the on-card autograph adds to the card’s value.
Value: $750 (BGS 9.5/10) for base autograph card as of August 2018.
For collectors who can’t afford the premium value of Bowman Chrome rookie cards, the Topps Heritage autograph rookie cards are a very nice consolation.
While this card doesn’t feature Acuna in his Major League uniform, it does have him in a nice profile shot wearinig his Florida Fire Frogs uniform.
The autograph is also on-card, which is a nice touch.
Value: $329 (BGS 9.5/10) for base autograph card as of Aug. 2018.
Acuna’s 2017 Bowman’s Best autograph rookie card is another nice addition for rookie and prospect collectors.
This one has a photograph of Acuna batting and the autograph is on-card as well.
A graded card is also more affordable than the aforementioned Topps Heritage and Bowman Chrome rookie cards.
Value: $250 (BGS 9.5/10) for base autograph card as of Aug. 2018.
