Top Witt Jr. Cards to Collect
In a narrative that reads like a fairytale, “lucrative” aptly describes the Witt family’s storied ventures in baseball. With an almost enchanted lineage, Bobby Witt Jr., a Texas native, has traced the illustrious footsteps of his father, Bobby Sr., and uncle, Mike, who combined pitched in the Big Leagues for 28 seasons. But, instead of adding chapters about striking out batters like his predecessors, Witt Jr. is telling his tale with a Louisville Slugger. After turning down a collegiate opportunity with Oklahoma, he embraced his destiny as the Royals’ 2019 second pick, signing a deal worth over $7 million. Witt’s journey through the minors saw him garlanded as the USA Today Minor League Player of the Year, and the Baseball America Minor League Player of the Year, cementing his reputation as one of the world’s best prospects. The blend of speed, power, and glovework that propelled him to the Royals’ top level continues to write his legend as he stands in line for MVP votes, concluding his second season. Like his ascending career, the value of his RCs and more is skyward bound, putting him on par with Lil Wayne – No Ceilings!
Bobby Witt Jr. RCs & More #s 10-6
10: 2021 Bowman’s Best #15 Bobby Witt Jr. RC
Don’t be thrown off by the lack of an RC tag on the card – Rookie Cards can exist without that sought-after label! The reason behind this is a bit complex and is particularly a quirk of Bowman’s Best, but it doesn’t diminish the card’s value. Featuring one of the more inventive designs in the Witt Jr. Rookie Card family, the striking addition of a massive KC in the background adds a touch of flair to this beauty of a card.
9: 2019 Bowman Next Top 20 #T8 Bobby Witt Jr.
Here’s the scoop! Even though Witt’s “1st Bowman” cards made a splash in 2020, the shortstop’s debut MLB cards dropped a year earlier in 2019. The 2019 Bowman Next Top 20 #T8 Bobby Witt Jr. spawned from a special Topps Now-style limited release spotlighting the season’s hottest 20 prospects. It sold out at approximately 722 copies, so copping one might feel like a chase. Isn’t that what trading card collecting is about? The chase!
8: 2022 Topps #BG11 Bobby Witt Jr. Black Gold RC
The 2022 Topps #BG11 Bobby Witt Jr. Black Gold RC is an outlier because it dropped in 2022 — Witt Jr.’s rookie season. In his inaugural campaign with the Royals, the slugging speedster became the fifth player in MLB history to record 20 homers and 20 stolen bases in his first season. That fact alone is what helps drive the prices on these bad boys.
7: 2019 Bowman’s Best 1999 Franchise Favorites #99FF-BWJ Bobby Witt Jr.
The 2019 Bowman’s Best 1999 Franchise Favorites #99FF-BWJ Bobby Witt Jr. stands as Witt Jr.’s only MLB card released in 2019 packs. Shoutout to the design, which is a nod to the ’99 version of Bowman’s Best Franchise Favorites, a small set that featured a young Derek Jeter. Fun fact: Witt Jr. wasn’t even born until 2000. Who else here feels ancient? While you can find these cards in about 1:3 packs, the checklist consists of just 40 players. You’ll be diving through approximately ten hobby boxes to get your hands on a Witt.
6: 2020 Bowman Transcendent #39 Bobby Witt Jr. /100
Encased in a chic metal frame and limited to just 100 copies, the 2020 Bowman Transcendent #39 Bobby Witt Jr. /100 card has a luxury car feel, radiating exclusivity and style.
