We expect the value of Jordan Walker’s rookie cards to surge over the next two years as he develops into one of the top prospects in baseball. We would not be shocked to see him in the top 10 in regards to MLB prospects at this time next year.
He is a screaming buy right now in our opinion.
As we mentioned, we are buying up Jordan Walker rookie cards at this time and will continue throughout the next 6 to 12 months.
He should reach the primary league level sometime in late 2023 or early 2024. His best rookie card to invest in in terms of ROI is the base 2020 Bowman Draft at a PSA 10 or SGC 10 grade.
