NL ROY Top Cards to Collect
When Corbin Carroll approaches the plate, Travis Scott’s “Overdue” blasts from the Diamondbacks’ Chase Field speakers. Quite fitting, as the rookie’s led a Diamondbacks squad on an overdue trip to the World Series, a place they hadn’t been since they won it with Louis Gonzalez and a band of ballers in 2001. While Carroll, the franchise’s first rook to start the All-Star Game, has put forth a Rookie of the Year-type campaign, the value of his trading cards continues to skyrocket. Let’s look at the Seattle native and superstar’s best rookie cards.

10: 2023 MLB TOPPS NOW® #1040 Youngest Since Cobb with 3-Hit, 2-SB Postseason Game
Racking up stats during the regular season is one thing. But keeping it rollin’ when the lights shine brightest? That’s what makes players legendary. During Arizona’s 4-2 win in the decisive Game 7 of its 2023 NLCS series with Philadelphia, Carroll put himself in a special class by becoming the youngest player (23) with a three-hit, two-stolen base game in the postseason since a 21-year-old Ty Cobb accomplished the feat in the 1908 World Series. “We won this game tonight because of Corbin,” said general manager Mike Hazen. “He’s the player we thought he was gonna be.” Seems like Carroll can hang with the big dogs.

In the 2023 Series 1 set from Topps, there’s an exciting addition called the Golden Mirror SSP Base Variations for every player featured in the checklist.

Bowman jumped on the bandwagon, producing the 2018 Bowman Draft Under Armour All-American #UAA5 Corbin Carroll, which may or may not be his earliest auto. Either way, it’s a home run card of the kid in his teenage years. Happy Hunting!
