If you ask MLB Pipeline’s Jim Callis who could be the number one prospect a year from now, Vladimir Guerrero Jr. is definitely in the conversation.
That’s fairly bold to predict but according to Callis, he’s got the “bat speed, strength, plate discipline, pitch recognition, good approach, uses the whole field.”
If you believe that, now might be the good time to get his 2016 Bowman Chrome autograph rookie card like this one BGS Graded 9.5/10 with a Buy It Now price on eBay of $297.49.
There are several base autograph cards on auction though (see links below) that might be available for less although the recent ones sold range from $225 to $250. And there’s colored refractors available for much more.
Only time will tell though if Junior is better than dad. Callis also makes another bold prediction, doubling down on his hyperbole – Vlad Jr. and Sr. will be the first father-son duo to make it into the Hall of Fame.
