The future of the Seattle Mariners looks bright with top 2021 MLB prospect Jarred Kelenic in the lineup.
In most top prospect lists to begin the 2021 season, Kelenic easily lands in the top 5.
And it’s not out of the realm of possibility to repeat for the Mariners and follow in his Mariners’ teammate Kyle Lewis, to win Rookie of the Year honors.
Here are 3 of his rookie cards we like best with links below to bid or buy them on eBay.
1. 2018 Bowman Chrome Draft Autograph Rookie Card
For any top MLB prospect, his 1st Bowman autograph card will in 99% of the cases hold the most value.
While the more rare refractors will go for thousands, there are the base autograph cards that are more common and cost significantly less than the color refractors.
2. 2018 Bowman Chrome Draft Variation Autograph Rookie Card
Generally speaking, the variation card that shows the player in a fielding position doesn’t go for as much as the one where they are batting (for non-pitchers of course).
This is true of Kelenic’s Bowman Chrome card with the aforementioned 1st Bowman which is Kelenic (then a Mets prospect) taking a swing.
But for those who are on a tighter budget, this variation autograph card is a nice consolation.
3. 2018 Bowman’s Best Autograph Rookie Card
While not as prestigious or sought after as the Bowman Chrome autograph cards, the Bowman’s Best is still a reputable set.
And the on-card autograph cards usually go for far less than the listed price of the Chrome cards. Plus they have several refractors to chase as well.
