We might have a real one here my friends. When Julio Rodriguez got the call to the big leagues, I was excited, and that’s even as an AL West rival A’s fan. My worst fear? That he would see the same fate as teammate Jered Kelenic, and early on, things weren’t looking good.

A lot of that was due to the much talked about squeezing of the strike zone, but either way, I think we all have gotten way too spoiled to the point of expecting to see these young guys light it on fire as soon as they hit an MLB diamond.

Well, luckily, JRod has stormed right back, and is easily becoming one of the brightest young stars of baseball (together with Oneil Cruz, Jeremy Pena, and others).

And if you thought his cards were hot upon his call-up, the excitement is only building as Rodriguez is showing he has what it takes to be a big name for a long time.

So, let’s talk rookie cards shall we. Well, while I have some bad news that a true flagship rookie has yet to make it into packs, there is still a Topps RC option along with a 1st Bowman Chrome and many others.

2019 Bowman Chrome BCP-33

You know what’s a big bummer in the baseball card world? When a guy you want to collect doesn’t have a 1st Bowman. Perhaps even worse is when a player has a 1st Bowman auto, but not a 1st Bowman base. Luckily, neither of those are the case here, with Julio Rodriguez having a 1st Bowman paper, chrome, and mojo to choose from.

As you can see above, the lowest available chrome on eBay (Buy It Now) is around $40. His paper is even up around $10 based on my recent listing of a few in my COMC store.

And let me say this quick note about ripping boxes, blasters, and packs. I don’t do a lot of it, but when I do, it’s usually Bowman. In addition, I’m usually one to rip and store. As in, I’ll open, sleeve the good stuff, and then pretty much put everything away until players from the set start blossoming. It takes discipline, or in my case, a short memory. But, it could pay off! Not to mention it’s a ton of fun to reach back into that mini time capsule.

Anyway, on to the next one.

2022 Topps SP #659

So I touched on this a bit in my post about the 2022 Topps Series 2 Rookie Cards to watch for, and that was the fact that Julio Rodriguez wasn’t on the base card checklist. The card world was up in arms, but only for a short moment as it was soon discovered that while JRod, Bobby Witt Jr., and Jeremy Pena weren’t on the base checklist, Rodriguez and Witt Jr. did in fact have SP cards to chase (along with others; more to come).

So, that’s what makes this card special. While it won’t be considered his true RC given it is an SP, it sure does hold some great value. And I personally don’t love the horizontal orientation, but it is a pretty cool photo, so tough to complain.

2022 Topps Series 2 1987 Auto

I typically don’t include autos on this list, but I just couldn’t resist with this one. For starters, it was his first with the RC shield, and second it’s on-card, and on an iconic 1987 Topps woodgrain. On the downside, everyone else seems to think it’s a great card as well—the lowest available on eBay Buy It Now right now is $625.

But not to fret, while it’s tough to stomach the fact that even a Bowman paper is around $10, and a couple of the other cards on this post above are hundreds of dollars, there are still plenty of cards to choose from! Here is a list of the different Julio Rodriguez cards available from 2022, thanks to Break Ninja.
