The guys who mash get all the love. But how about the defensive superstars like Toronto Blue Jays Kevin Pillar?
Like many top prospects, the rookie card value of Los Angeles Dodgers’ Cody Bellinger saw a big uptick before the season started.
Unlike Alex Bregman of the Houston Astros who is perceived as not reaching his high expectations right out of the gates (and subsequently seeing his card value decline), rookies like New York Yankees Aaron Judge has seen the opposite happen to his card value.
We’re only two weeks in the season but there’s a lot of worrying going on with both fantasy baseball owners and rookie card collectors alike.
Having one all-star and/or Hall of Fame rookie player on a multi-player card can still have major value. But what about having three stud players on one card with two of them being rookies?
I thought this was an interesting video by PSA about 15 modern card prices that have skyrocketed over the years.
Given the extreme small sample size, it’s still encouraging to see when a prospect comes out swinging (so to speak) and showcasing his talents right out of the gates (or batter’s box if you will).
