Vlad Jr.’s rookie cards have been a hot buy for the last 2 years and investors were looking for a huge payoff when he got called up. The results were a mixed bag but we feel his future is very bright.
Read on to discover which Vladimir Guerrero Jr. rookie cards are worth your coin.
Card of the Week: 2020 Justin Herbert Panini Prizm RC #325 - Buy on eBay
Hobby Box of the Week: 2020 Prizm Basketball Hobby Box - Buy on eBay
Vlad Guerrero Jr.’s rookie card prices surged on the combination of his play and the fact that his dad (Vladimir Guerrero) was one of the best hitters in the game.
Vladimir Guerrero Jr. was called up in the summer of 2019 and now has an everyday job playing third base for the Toronto Blue Jays.
He showed flashes of brilliance in his first season in the majors batting a respectable .275 with 15 jacks and 69 RBIs.
Top Investment Option: Barry Bonds Rookie Cards
We feel the future will hold big things for Vlad Jr. and have invested in a variety of his rookie cards over the past 2 years… if he craps the bed we are out some money for sure … BUT we don’t foresee that in his future.
A plus .300 batting average and 30 or more home runs are very likely for multiple years with this kid (think Albert Pujols numbers in his prime).

The price for a PSA 10 will ruin about the same as the 2017 Bowman Chrome and will challenge the Vlad Jr. Bowman Chrome rookie card as his most popular RC.

2017 Vladimir Guerrero Jr. Topps RC Heritage Minor League #215
The 2017 Topps Heritage Minor League Vladimir Guerrero Jr. RC Rookie Card features Vlad Jr. with his game face smile in a Lansing Lugnuts jersey.
We love the Lansing Lugnuts logo and team name… Vlad Jr. wearing that Lugnuts hat makes this card a real winner in our opinion.
This card is not available on eBay that often but when it is we suggest buying it.
2019 Vladimir Guerrero Jr. Topps No Number SP RC
We saved the best for last… this could be a BIG ROI WINNER WINNER CHICKEN DINNER!
The 2019 Vlad Guerrero Jr. No Number Topps rookie card could truly turn into something special if he destroys major league pitching as he did in the minors.
Remember when the Bat Down Ronald Acuna rookie card could be bought for under $100 and now it’s over $1k at high grades!… the same thing could easily happen with the Vladimir Guerrero Jr NNO card.
Popular: Top Derek Jeter Rookie Cards
We have invested a decent amount of coin on some of the Vlad Jr. NNO rookie cards and are advising our readers to do the same…
PLEASE note there some degree of risk with this investment as Vlad Jr. has not yet proven to be a force in the league… it is likely but not a sure thing.
Vladimir Guerrero Jr. Rookie Card Value
Vlad Jr.’s rookie cards have seen a steady gain over the last year (not a huge gain however as his call up in 2019 had its ups and downs).
We suspect he will come out raking in his sophomore season and are steadily buying Vladimir Guerrero rookie cards at value prices on eBay auctions.
Please email GoldCardAuctions at email@example.com to get a value of your Vlad Jr. Rookie Card(s) (please include images of both the back and front of the card).
The most valuable Vlad Jr. rookie cards are the 2016 Bowman Gold Refractor and the 2019 Topps Chrome Superfractor… good luck landing those babies 🙂

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. Investment Outlook
With young superstar offensive talent surrounding him (i.e. Bo Bichette, Cavan Biggio) it is a given that the Blue Jays will be a force to reckon with at the plate.
If they can just secure some good arms via free agency deep playoff runs for many years would not be out of the question.
Even without playoff action we still love Vladimir Guerrero Jr. baseball cards to be one of the Best Baseball Cards to Buy Right Now in the hobby.
If you like Vlad Jr. Rookie Cards also check out Fernando Tatis Jr. Rookie Cards as he is in a similar position as Vlad Jr. (i.e. surrounded by strong young talented players).
Investment Rating: STRONG BUY
Best Vlad Jr. Rookie Card: Our favorite Vladimir Guerrero Jr. RC is his 2016 Bowman Chrome Refractor and his 2019 Topps Chrome No Number SSP… we really like the NNO and think it could see an uprising like the Acuna Jr Bat Down SSP if Vlad Jr. becomes the player experts predict.
