CARD OF THE DAY: Albert Pujols 2001 Bowman Chrome Rookie Autograph Card

  • 2 min read

Whenever a modern day iconic baseball card like the Albert Pujols 2001 Bowman Chrome Rookie Autograph card is listed for sale, it deserves special attention.

Plus it’s graded a BGS 9.5/10 Gem Mint, which will pump up its value even further.

The link to the listing is below but just a brief history why this card is so iconic in the hobby.

Other than this being the rookie card of Pujols, a future Hall of Famer, it’s also the card that really launched the importance of autograph rookie cards particularly in the Bowman set.

It also created scarcity with this card only numbered to 500. However, since it was a redemption card, there are probably less than 500 actually redeemed, making this card even more scarce/valuable.

Here’s a chance of getting a piece of hobby history below.
