It doesn’t appear that Trea Turner rookie cards get enough respect in the hobby although wherever he’s played, all he’s done is hits and runs with great effectiveness.
Since the San Diego Padres selected Turner in the first round with the 13th overall selection, he’s worked up through each level. But then he got traded to the Washington Nationals where he would find early success.
The Nationals brought Turner up to the major leagues on August 21, 2015 and finished the 2015 season with a .225 batting average through 40 at-bats with one home run and one RBI.
He continued to get more playing time midway through 2016 where he really started to shine winning the Major League Baseball Rookie of the Month Award in the National League for his performance in August 2016, hitting .357 that month with five home runs and 11 stolen bases.
Turner ultimatley finished second in National League Rookie of the Year Award behind Corey Seager despite playing in only 73 games that season.
2014 Bowman Chrome Autograph #BCATT Trea Turner Rookie Card
It’s the first Bowman Chrome autograph rookie/prospect card of Trea Turner and for many baseball card collectors, it’s the most coveted.
The base autograph cards are still in the hundreds while the rare refractors like blue and gold will cost a bit more in the low thousands.
2016 Topps Chrome Autograph #RATTU Trea Turner Rookie Card
A more affordable alternative to the Bowman Chrome rookie card is from the Topps Chrome set.
The Trea Turner rookie card in this set also comes in a number of refractors with various rarities.
And like the Bowman Chrome rookie autograph card, it also comes with an on-card autograph.
2016 Topps Heritage Autograph Trea Turner Rookie Card
We like this card for the classic look the Topps Heritage set often gives collectors with the player posing for the camera shot.
In Trea’s case, he’s holding a bat over his shoulder looking directly at the camera.
Plus we also like the autograph is on-card as well and there are red ink autograph cards available numbered to 67 (in addition to the blue ink autograph more readily available).
