Ronald Acuña Jr. is baseball’s storm in cleats. Plucked from Venezuela in 2014, he catapulted into the MLB by 2018 and immediately grabbed the NL Rookie of the Year title. Flash forward to 2023, and he’s the NL’s MVP. In 2023, Acuña did the unthinkable, becoming the first player to belt 40 homers while swiping a jaw-dropping 70 bases. With his meteoric rise, it’s no wonder his rookie cards are surging in value. Check our list of top RCs and more from one of baseball’s brightest stars.
