2016 Bowman Chrome Prospect Autograph Juan Soto (Gold Refractor)
#CPA-JS BGS Gem Mint 9.5, Auto 10 - #'d 36/50. Another treasure
from the gold mine that is Dominican Republic baseball, Juan Soto
was still working his way up through the minor league circuit when
this trading card was issued by the Bowman company in 2016. He'd
make his Major League debut on May 20, 2018, the youngest player in
the Bigs and the first born in 1998. He'd get his first start the
next day and mark the occasion with a 422-foot opposite field home
run with the first pitch he saw. A month later, he was batting
clean up for the Nationals, finishing the season with twenty-two
homers in 116 games and a second-place finish in National League
Rookie of the Year balloting behind Atlanta's Ronald Acuna.
Suffice it to say that this 2016 rookie card increased in value dramatically during that spectacular 2018 debut season, and has continued to climb ever since, with no ceiling in sight. He claimed his first batting title last year with a scorching .351 in 2020, earning his second top-ten finish in MVP voting and his first Silver Slugger.
Out of fifty examples of this card inserted into 2016 Bowman packs, only a single example has earned a higher assessment from the experts at Beckett. If Soto continues to play at the elite level we've seen thus far, there's little question that this rare rookie will skyrocket in value.
Graded BGS Gem Mint 9.5 with subgrades: Centering 9.5, Edges 9, Corners 9.5, Surface 10. Beckett 10 Autograph.
