Cody Bellinger Rookie Card

Cody Bellinger (7/13/95) was drafted by the Los Angeles Dodgers with the 124th overall pick in the 2013 MLB Draft.

His very first year facing major league pitching he jacked a mind-blowing 39 homers and 97 RBIs in only 132 games.

Complete Cody Bellinger Rookie Card Year Stats: 132 Games – 39 HR – 97 RBIs – .267 Avg |.933 OPS

The Dodgers knew they had something very special on their hands… he also paid of card collectors who picked up a few of his RCs before making his debut in 2017.

For whatever reason Bellinger 2nd season in the league wasn’t as good as his first (sophomore slump?) but in all honestly, it was still pretty damn good as he hit 25 homers with 76 RBIs and a .260 batting average… 90% of the league would be pleased with those numbers.

In 2019 he truly broke out and made it clear he is one of the best players in the game! He jacked the ball out 47 times, batted .305, and had 115 RBIs… all career highs… as you might expect the price of his rookie cards soared to new heights.

Investment Advice

There are various reasons why Bellinger‘s rookie cards are so expensive.

His time in the National League is a major factor, while he’s also the son of former MLB star Clay Bellinger.

Then there’s his recent form and the sheer variety of appealing cards on offer.

He received 19 of 30 first-place votes for the M.V.P. Award from the Baseball Writers’ Association of America, highlighting his progress in 2019.

He could easily go on to greater heights in the years to come.

While collectors used to ignore prospect and minor league cards, the increased prices and interest show a change in attitudes, and there’s something for every budget.
