Andrew Benintendi of the Boston Red Sox was a top prospect and rookie of the year candidate going into the 2017 season.
And he still might be as Benintendi continues to produce consistently although catching up to the great Aaron Judge (who has significantly cooled down in the second half) might prove to be a difficult task.
Here’s the top 3 we like best (links to each card listed on eBay below).
2017 Topps Heritage autograph rookie
Here’s a classic bat resting on the shoulder pose with a great profile shot of the rookie outfielder.
Harkening back to the golden years of baseball card collecting, the Topps Heritage rookie card also has the RC symbol on it.
Plus this one is autographed (although non-autograph versions are significantly cheaper).
2017 Topps Finest autographed rookie
For those who like a more modern look with a flashier design, the Topps Finest rookie card fits that bill.
It also has the RC symbol on it and having his last name enlarged gives it a sharp look.
Plus this card is also autographed on-card.
2015 Bowman Chrome Draft autographed rookie
Most likely the most popular to collect is Benintendi’s 2015 Bowman Chrome Draft autographed rookie card.
While technically a prospect card, collectors treat the 1st Bowman card as a rookie card.
The on-card autograph is obviously a nice value add and there are plenty of colored refractors available too.
