Nico Hoerner was born on 5/13/1997 in Oakland, CA.
He was selected in the first round (24th overall) of the 2018 MLB Draft by the Chicago Cubs.
Nico attended Stanford University (Palo Alto, CA) and can play 2B, SS, or Center Field but his true position is 2B.
Nico is a hot commodity this year and his rookie cards are at a great value right now.
Here are the best Nico Hoerner rookie cards for investment purposes.
2018 Nico Hoerner Bowman Chrome Draft Rookie Card #CDANH (buy on eBay)
This is our favorite Nico rookie card to date (there will be more).
The card shows Nico throwing the ball after a line drive ground out.
Numbered #CDA-NH the back of the card reads “Ranked 10th on the 2018 Pac-12 Conference batting race (.345)… thieved 15 bags…Posted .887 OPS at Stanford as a JUnior… Garnered All-Star recognition in 2017 Cape Code League”
The 2018 Bowman Chrome Draft is Nico’s best rookie card… for now.
2019 Bowman Sterling Nico Hoerner RC Rookie Auto #NH
We have a love/hate relationship with the 2019 Bowman Sterling Cards.
We purchased a half dozen Wander Franco rookie cards Bowman Sterling redemptions (not graded… raw card). We got the cards from Topps in a month and sent them to PSA to be graded… Only one came back with a PSA 10 rating… all the others were not graded due to us requesting non-grades if not a PSA 9 or higher. We were very disappointed to say the lease.
The Bowman Sterling Auto cards also seem to get less value compared to Bowman Autos.
If you want a Nico Hoerner auto card pick a Bowman or Topps. We only recommend this card as a third buying option (don’t buy redemption or raw cards).
2020 Topps #70 Nico Hoerner Cubs RC Rookie Card (buy on eBay)
Here is an excellent Nico Hoerner rookie card.
The card shows Nico running out of the batter’s box after a line drive hit.
Numbered #70 the back of the card reads “Nico was ticketed for the Fall League for the second straight year in 2019 before injuries to the Cubs in middle infield expedited his path to the majors…”
We have no problem picking up a few graded 2020 Topps Nico Hoerner RCs.

Nico Hoerner is one of the more popular rookies this year and may win the Cubs 2b job out of Spring Training with a big performance, as Kipnis isn’t currently on the 40-man roster.
We like Nico and have bought a few of his Bowman Chrome Draft Cards.
Buy a few of his Bowman Chrome cards and thanks us later (avoid the Bowman Sterling)… we didn’t buy any of the 2020 Topps Hoerner cards but wouldn’t have a problem owning a few of them as well.
