    2018 Bowman Chrome Prospects Auto Luis Robert (Orange Shimmer Refractors) #CPA-LR BGS Gem Mint 9.5, Auto 10 - #'d 24/25. Luis Robert is a 23-year-old Cuban center fielder who defected to the United States from Cuba in 2016. Robert exhibits wonderful potential, as a hitter for average and power, as an elite fielder, and as a base stealer. Playing for Cuba in 2015, he was named to the All-Tournament Team in the 18U Baseball World Cup. He also played on the Cuban National team in 2016. In May, 2017, the 6'2", 220 lb. phenom signed a contract with the Chicago White that included a 26 million dollar signing bonus. He played in the minors in 2018-19, hitting .453 at High-A Winston-Salem, .314 at Double-A Birmingham, and .297 at Triple-A Charlotte. He led the minors in runs in 2019 with 108, and was second that season in hits with 167. Before the 2020 season began, he signed a 50 million dollar six-year contract with the White Sox. He broke into the Majors for the truncated 2020 season, and he hit 233 with 11 homers. In the Wild Card Game 3 Play-offs, he hit an all-time White Sox post-season record longest home run, 487 feet, against Oakland. He won a Gold Glove and was second in voting for Rookie of the year. In 2021, he was hitting .316, with a home run, four stolen bases and an .822 OPS when he was injured from a complete tear of his right hip flexor. He is projected to be out for three to four months rehabilitation, and he may be able to return to play for the end of the season.

    Although it is not technically a rookie card, a first time Bowman Chrome card, such as this one, usually exhibits long term value, especially since it is the autographed card of a potential superstar. Graded BGS Gem Mint 9.5 with subgrades: Centering 9.5, Corners 9, Edges 9.5, Surfaces 9.5 with a Beckett 10 Auto. Limited edition - #24/25.
