Shohei Ohtani may very well be the most highly touted foreign prospect of All time, and once in the MLB, he has proven to everyone exactly why. No player since Babe Ruth has pitched 40+ Innings and also hit 10+ Home Runs, and even more impressive, no player has even recorded 50 Strikeouts while hitting 20+ Home Runs, that is until 2018 when the rookie Shohei Ohtani accomplished both of these feats.

After being derailed for a portion of the 2018 Season, Ohtani rebounded strongly by winning the September AL Rookie of the Month Award and currently sits in good position to potentially win the AL Rookie of the Year Award. Having elected Tommy John Surgery this offseason, Ohtani still most likely will DH in 2019 and return to his two way dominance in 2020. With the ability to hit 50 Home Runs and win the Cy Young Award in the same season, baseball fans have never witnessed such a talent. As such, Ohtani's rookie cards and memorabilia have also set a new precedent. His 2018 Bowman Chrome Superfractor Rookie Card sold for $184,000, which is the same card offered here, just limited to /1 versus this Orange refactor which is limited to only /25. Available in this lot is the redemption card that was inserted into packs that gets traded in in exchange for the actual card. There is still well over a year to redeem the card, and if it arrives in Pristine Condition, it could be worth double or even triple that of the regular Orange refactors. If you believe Ohtani is for real, then this single highhandedly the best item to own. The Bowman Chrome Rookie cards are the premium rookie card for a baseball player and the most sought after. If the 50Hr/Cy Young season occurs, I would fully expect this very card to be worth in excess of $100,000! This card is the redemption for Ohtani as a batter and not as a pitcher making these ones even more rare.
