This Acuna rookie card has the special All Star game silver foil stamp on the front of the card, found only in a limited edition of the 2018 Topps complete sets. This card is unlike any of the other pack pulled or factory set pulled Acuna #698 rookie card as it has the silver foil All Star Game stamp. You can do some comparison by looking up how many of the bat down 698 card are available versus this All Star version.
The All Star complete sets which is the only place this card can be found is pretty much non-existent any where... And if you do find a set, there is no guarantee that Acuna card will be gem mint condition as the Acuna/Torres cards were hand inserted into the end of the set, possibly leading to one or more damaged corners. Acuna, as a 21 year old in 2019, showed his 2018 Rookie of the Year season was no fluke by batting.
280, leading the NL in runs scored with 127, along with 175 hits, 101 RBIs, 41 home runs and 37 stolen bases which led the National League. Acuna made the All Star team, flirted with a 40-40 season and won the Silver Slugger award.
Again, Acuna had such an incredible sophomore season as a 21 year old... What would this card be valued at if Acuna gets a 40/40 season in 2023? Note that the picture is a scan used for informational purposes and may or may not be the serial number pictured but you are guaranteed the same rookie card with the same PSA 9 MINT grade.
This card has been professionally graded a PSA 9 (which is MINT), by Professional Sports Authenticator (PSA), one of the top two grading services in the sports card industry. Because Beckett and PSA are the top two 3rd party grading companies in the collectibles industry. Because if you want your card to appreciate in value, the condition of the card is very important. Having the card sealed in the case & it's condition graded allows you to easily sell/trade the card online.
