2021 Top Pick Rookie Card
2020 Justin Herbert Prizm RC
Many savvy investors are turning to high-end autograph rookie cards as an alternative investment option to stocks and bonds.
Over the last few years, certain rookie cards have had an ROI passing 500% and even 1000%!
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.
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.
Notebale Picks in 2020
Almost every card we posted in 2020 doubled or came extremely close… the only ones that didn’t was our Drew Lock Optic RC, Sammy Sosa RC, and Mark McGwire Topps RC recommendations.
Here were a few of our best recommendations from 2020…
2016 Fernando Tatis Bowman Chrome #BCP17
2018 Luka Doncic Prizm RC #280
2017 Ronald Acuna Jr. Bowman Chrome RC #BCP127
2003 LeBron James Topps Chrome RC #111
1996 Kobe Bryant Topps Chrome RC #138
Now we are not naive enough to think this is the case with every card. In fact, 99% of cards are not worth your time.
BUT that’s why we created Gold Card Auctions… to help everyday hobbyists invest and make money in sports cards.
Rookie Cards That Could Double Your Money In 2021
With that goal in mind, here are 7 cards we think have a real shot at doubling in value in 2021.
2020 Jasson Dominguez Bowman Chrome Prospect Auto RC #CPAJDO
Here is the crown jewel of the 2020 Bowman Chrome card set.
The Jasson Dominguez Bowman Prospect RC is numbered #CPA-JDO and features Jasson in the classic New York Yankees White Pin Stripe Jersey with a sly little grin that seems to say I’m going to own NY sooner rather than later.
2020 Jasson Dominguez Bowman Chrome Parallels: Sky Blue /499, Purple /250, Blue /150, Green /99, Yellow /75, Gold /50, Orange /25, Red /5, Platinum /1, Printing Plates /1
2020 Joe Burrow Panini Mosaic Auto RC #RA1
The 2020 Joe Burrow Mosaic Auto RC should be one of the better cards heading into the 2021 NFL season.
Other than Justin Herbert, Burrow is our top pick for second-year NFL players.
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 Autograph Prizm rookie card is a solid pick and should have a tremendous ROI assuming Herbert avoids a sophomore letdown.
We still think this bad boy has room to run in 2021 and we think Acuna Jr. wins the MVP.
Mr. Acuna is prime to become the best player in baseball this year. Sorry, Mike, it’s time to give up the crown.
Could he win the MVP, a World Series Ring, and a Gold Glove all in one year? We wouldn’t bet against it and that year could be 2021.
2017 Ronald Acuna Bowman Chrome Parallels: Refractors /499, Purple Refractors /250, Blue Refractors /150, Green Refractors /99, Gold Refractors /50, Orange Refractors /25, Red Refractors /5, and Superfractors /1
