What a 2019 season for Juan Soto, the Washington Nationals outfielder who followed up his strong rookie campaign by booking himself to the World Series.
If it hadn’t been for another NL rookie sensation Ronald Acuna of the Atlanta Braves last season, Soto might have very well been the rookie of the year.
Now with his early post-season involvement, expect Soto rookie cards to climb even higher.
Here’s our selection for his 3 best rookie cards to collect and/or invest in with links to find them on eBay.
1. 2016 Bowman Chrome Prospect Autograph Card #CPA-JS
As usual, any prospect or rookie sensation with an autograph card in the Bowman Chrome prospect set will most likely be his most valuable rookie card.
Prices have continued to climb since Soto’s breakout year and if his career continues on its current projection, expect this card value to go even higher.
His more rare refractor parallels are already at incredible prices.
2. 2018 Topps Heritage Real One Autograph Card #ROAJSO
The Topps Heritage is another fan favorite set for rookie card collectors especially if the player in question is included in the “Real One Autograph” subset.
Fortunately for Soto fans, there is.
Plus the red ink autograph variation is only numbered to 69 making it more valuable than the regular autograph cards.
3. 2018 Topps Chrome Update Autograph Card #HMT55
You can find Soto’s autograph rookie card in the updated 2018 Topps Chrome set.
While it’s a sticker autograph, the values are more affordable than the two other rookie cards aforementioned.
