There’s no question that Shohei Ohtani came to Major League Baseball as advertised – the Sho show was a must see in 2018 with both his above average pitching and batting ability.

So while this is a long time coming, we at fivecardguys.com wanted to list our choice for the top 3 rookie cards released this past year for Ohtani.

Here they are below with links to buy them on eBay.

1. 2018 Bowman Chrome autograph insert (#CRA-SO | pitching photo) AND 2018 Bowman Chrome autograph rookie card (#BCRA-SO | batting photo)

Okay, as to avoid some confusion, we chose both these cards and wanted to highlight them both together.

The first one (#CRA-SO) is an insert found in the 2018 Bowman Baseball packs with various refractors including the 1/1 superfractor that sold for six figures. It’s what caused a frenzy for baseball card collectors with many hoping to get one of the autograph cards.

And the second card (#BCRA-SO) is found within the 2018 Bowman Chrome hobby box, which features Ohtani batting. While not as valuable as the insert aforementioned, it still commands great value for the autograph card.

2. 2018 Topps Heritage Real Ones autograph card (#ROA-SO)

If Bowman Chrome prospect and rookie autograph cards are not your thing, the Topps Heritage is a very popular set many collectors look at next.

It’s especially true if the player in question has a Real Ones autograph in the set, which luckily for Ohtani fans, there are.

A subset of these cards are available signed by Ohtani in red ink for die-hard collectors too.
