A great addition to any baseball enthusiast’s collection is an Andrew McCutchen rookie card. The 2009 Topps Update Chrome Rookie Refractor #CHR35 for the Pittsburgh Pirates is a popular choice and priced at only $15, along with the 2009 Topps #206 Rookie Card that sells for $5 in mint condition. He made waves in high school with a .474 batting average, and while he signed with the University of Florida in 2005, once drafted 11th overall by the Pittsburgh Pirates, he chose to go pro. Initially, he played with an All-Star team and was named the Minor League Player of the Year in 2006 but when center fielder Nate McLouth was traded in 2009, McCutchen introduced his skills the following day against the New York Mets. In that game, his first at bat yielded a single, followed by two singles, an RBI, one stolen base, and three runs scored in his four at bats. He also hit his first major league home run against the Minnesota Twins that same year and a single bringing Jack Wilson across the base to win the game. Career highs included being named the Baseball America Rookie of the Year and being fourth for the National League Rookie of the Year Award, both in 2009. He still plays for the Pittsburgh Pirates and being such an impressive player, any rookie card would be a great investment. These cards are to find through a number of online and internet resources. Andrew McCutchen baseball cards are starting to get the attention they deserve from collectors as well as investors. He has some serious upside which makes him one of the best prospects in today's game. The value of Andrew McCutchen rookie cards will continue to rise in value in the upcoming years.
