Best Alfonso Soriano Rookie Card

by admin on March 2, 2011

With a unique and varied history as a professional baseball player, an Alfonso Soriano rookie card is a great addition to any collection.  While there are several rookie cards, the 1999 Alfonso Soriano Bowman Chrome rookie card graded BGS, graded as 9.5 A is in greatest demand, selling around $115.  He began his career in 1997 playing with the Hiroshima Toyo Carp in Japan but due to strict training regimens and a salary dispute, he became a free agent, eventually signing with the New York Yankees in 1998 as an infielder.  Over the next five years, Alfonso Soriano made his mark in the game, almost getting the game and series winning home run in the 2001 World Series although the opposing Arizona Diamondbacks ended up winning.  He went on to play for the Texas Rangers from 2004 to 2005, the Washington Nationals from 2006 to 2007, and the Chicago Cubs starting in 2007, the team he still plays with today.  His other rookie cards, such as the 1999 Bowman #350 card BGS graded 9.5 sells around $40 and the 1999 Alfonso Soriano Topps Traded rookie card graded PSA 9 card has an asking price of $30, both popular because of his reputation for being a great ballplayer but also ongoing salary disputes.  To find these baseball cards, interested parties can look on eBay, various online card trading stores, and with local merchants.

Some of the best Alfonso Soriano baseball cards are very undervalued.  There are not too many players that have the power and the speed that Soriano does.  Even though he has been plagued by injuries over the past two years he is still one of the greatest players in the game.  If he can take the Chicago Cubs to the World Series you can expect Alfonso Soriano rookie cards to get the recognition that they deserve.  Here is a detailed list of some of th best Alfonso Soriano rookie cards ever produced.
