Gerrit Cole headed to World Series champs Houston Astros, rookie cards could see boost

The Houston Astros are shaping to have a pretty solid starting rotation with Gerrit Cole now the newest member of the World Series champions.

He joins Justin Verlander, Dallas Keuchel, Lance McCullers Jr., and Collin McHugh in the rotation.

The former number 1 draft pick pitched well with the Pittsburgh Pirates but now Cole has a much better shot to add a championship title to his career.

That could only help his rookie card value. If you’re a big believer, there’s this incredible 20-card graded lot of his Bowman Chrome Autographed Gold Refractor rookie cards currently up on eBay.

It won’t be cheap though as it’s available for $8,000.

A base autographed rookie card (BGS 9.5/10) is much more affordable at $75 here.
