Encapsulated and graded MINT 9 by BGS, with signature graded "10" by Beckett. Rookie Card. This super-premium collectible showcases a modern-day phenomenon: the young Japanese player who successfully emulated Babe Ruth as a legitimate two-way threat last year. Ohtani's hitting (.285, 22 HR's, 61 RBI's) and pitching skills (4-2 W/L with a 3.31 ERA) resulted in an A.L. Rookie of the Year Award in 2018.

Sidelined for over a month and a half in 2019, he has rebounded remarkably: .303, 14 HR's and 38 RBI's in just over fifty games. This example features this young Japanese phenom in a dynamic batting pose. A bold, blue ink Ohtani signature graces this item's obverse. The card's BGS condition report: Centering: 8.5, Corners: 9, Edges: 9.5, Surface: 9. A logo on the card's front attests to the authenticity of the signature and serves as Topps' COA. The wholly unique, limited-edition piece is serial-numbered "1/1." As a point of reference on value, a 2018 Bowman Chrome Superfractors Shohei Ohtani, Pitching (graded a BGS GEM MINT 9.5/BGS 10) commanded nearly $185,000 at public auction in September 2018. A visually captivating and truly exclusive card of a player who's destined for stardom, in Mint condition.
