Jo Adell is a highly touted prospect in the Los Angeles Angels organization and should be roaming the outfield for them by 2020.
Adell was the 10th overall pick in the 2017 MLB draft and was born on 4/8/1999.
He is a true five-tool talent and plays centerfield (Adell was also named the Gatorade Player of the year in the state of Kentucky).

2017 Jo Adell Bowman Chrome Draft Image Variation
The Bowman Chrome Draft Image Variation wasn’t listed on the final 2017 Bowman Draft Baseball checklist and are considered short prints.
Bowman wanted to give collectors a “little something more to chase during their hunt for the top young stars” according to cardboardconnection.com.
The 2017 Jo Adell Bowman Chrome Draft Image Variation shows Adell holding a baseball bat over his right shoulder… very 1989 Ken Griffey Jr. Upper Deck style.
2018 Jo Adell Leaf Valiant Green
GoldCardAuctions.com debated if we should add a third Adell rookie card at this time but we could not pass up the beauty of the 2017 Jo Adell Leaf Valiant Green card.
This card not only has an autograph but has a super cool green background. Some people may not like the color but we love it here and plan on adding it to our collection shortly.
2019 National Treasures #/99 JO ADEL Rookie Card
The card will cost you an arm and a leg but may well be worth it if Adell takes off as scouts predict him too.
We feel that Adell should fit in nicely with Trout (Mike Trout rookie cards) and Redon.
If the Angels could just get some pitching help they should make the playoffs sooner rather than later.
