Shohei Ohtani Rookie Card Sells for $6,725 as His Memorabilia Market Soars!

Los Angeles Angels rookie Shohei Ohtani has started his rookie season on fire, and the sports memorabilia world has taken notice.

According to Darren Rovell of ESPN.com, an autographed Topps rookie card of Ohtani sold for $6,725 on Monday.

“His autographed cards have tripled or quadrupled in the last two to three weeks,” said Rick Probstein, whose company was the one to sell the card on eBay, per Rovell.

The soaring market comes after Ohtani posted a 2.08 ERA, 0.46 WHIP and 18 strikeouts in his first 13 innings as an MLB pitcher and took a perfect game into the seventh inning of his last start, against the Oakland Athletics on Sunday.
