Triple SSS Sports Cards is a Detroit, Michigan, company that offers a full range of PSA-graded cards across the major sports, both on eBay and at card shows. One of the emerging baseball stars that Triple SSS Sports Cards inventories is Yordan Alvarez.
In his breakout 2022 season, the Houston Astros' power hitter had a .306 batting average and slugged 37 home runs, earning his first All-Star team selection and third place in the AL Most Valuable Player voting. This performance has not gone unrecognized, as his rookie cards continue to enjoy significant demand from those who expect even better things moving forward.
A key Alvarez issue worth investing in is the 2018 Bowman Chrome Prospect Autograph, which features an on-card signature. A pristine BGS 10 graded version of this card, serial numbered to 499, sold for $1,425 in March 2023. In 2022, a gold refractor parallel of this card numbered to only 10 sold for $8,600.
While featuring a less desirable sticker autograph, the 2018 Contenders Draft Picks Baseball Draft Ticket, serial numbered to /99, is another blue-chip option. From Panini and thus (unlike Topps/Bowman) not featuring Alvarez’ pro uniform, this card remains relatively affordable. Another less expensive rookie autograph worth considering is the Bowman’s Best Yordan Alvarez Best of 2018, which typically sells at auction in the $80 to $100 range.
