We have been hitting at a pretty good rate when it has come to our “double your money” rookie card predictions. It’s not too hard, to be honest. Simply take a look at the top 10 prospects or rookie of the year lists and narrow it down from there. You have to scratch off the pretenders like this year’s NBA ROY Scottie Barnes from the potential GOATS like Luka Doncic and Wander Franco (current/former “double your money” cards”.

Many savvy investors are turning to high-end rookie cards as an alternative investment option to stocks and bonds. Not only is it working but it’s working well. Over the last few years, certain rookie cards have had an ROI passing 300% and even 800%!


It’s much easier to predict which rookie cards have a chance of breaking out for a massive return on investment vs. any other investment vehicle (related article: best rookie cards to invest in now).

Take, for example, the 2011 Mike Trout Topps Update rookie card (see best Mike Trout RCs).

In 2018 the Trout Topps Update RC PSA 10 was selling for around $500… today, the same card, the exact grade, is going for $2,400.

#1. 2020 Justin Herbert Panini Prizm RC #325


rookie cards that could double in value

We absolutely love Herbert headed into the 2021 NFL season and feel he will pick up where he left off in 2020.

The Justin Herbert Prizm base rookie card is a solid pick and should have a tremendous ROI assuming Herbert avoids a sophomore letdown.


#2. 2019 Wander Franco Bowman Chrome RC #100


best rookie cards in 2022

We have been recommending this bad boy for the last 2 years and still believe it has great value.

Trending: Luka Doncic’s rookie cards 

Wander had a good 2021 but his 2022 will feature an All-Star appearance and maybe much more. 2023? 2024? MVP? Very possible as we are that high on Mr. Franco.


2020 Joe Burrow Panini Prizm RC #307


2022 best baseball cards to buy

“The 2020 Joe Burrow Prizm Base RC should be one of the better cards heading into the 2021 NFL season.” – This statement was made by us in August 2021… hope you guys bought a few.

We are not ready to take Burrow off the list yet.

We feel he and Herbert are truly in for great things.


2016 Bo Bichette Bowman Draft Chrome RC #BDC74


best baseball cards in 2022

Somewhat of a sleeper pick but one that could pay off BIG TIME.

This card as a PSA 10 grade is only going for around $120 to $130! Seriously?

We could very easily see this going for $260 or more something in the Fall of 2022 and in particular in the Fall if the BlueJays make the playoffs (which we think is likely as well).
