Top 3 Ichiro Suzuki rookie cards

What an amazing career by the original Japanese sensation Ichiro Suzuki who collected more than 3,000 hits during his MLB career (after nine seasons playing in Japan!)

To acknowledge the surefire Hall of Famer (in 2025), we list his best rookie cards in our opinion for collectors to collect.

Alex Bregman rookie cards

Top 3 Alex Bregman rookie cards

Alex Bregman of the Houston Astros just signed a five-year, $100-million extension.

And while that may not be as impressive as Mike Trout’s record-breaking contract of $430 million (over 12 years), Bregman is still a solid player to invest in when it comes to collecting.

Top 3 Nolan Arenado rookie cards

Signing an eight-year extension for $260 million before the start of the 2019 MLB season, Nolan Arenado will remain playing for the Colorado Rockies for the foreseeable future.

But compared to other players in the league who are also in the upper echelon of baseball talent (like Mike Trout, Bryce Harper, Mookie Betts), he doesn’t get as much hobby love.

Top 3 Derek Jeter rookie cards

His accolades go on and on, which include five-time World Series champion, 3,465 career hits, rookie of the year, multiple MVP awards, just to name a few.

As he first broke into the league in the 1990s when many of the baseball cards released were mass produced, his most valuable rookie cards tend to be the ones that are hard to find in good condition.

Top 3 Shohei Ohtani rookie cards

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.
