Pujols Market Begins to Sizzle After 500th Homer

PSA Collectors Club

Prices didn’t shoot through the roof, but it looks like the baseball world is rediscovering Albert Pujols rookie cards.  After he became the 26th player to join the 500 home run club on Tuesday night, bidding and buying activity picked up with four Pujols cards entering the list of the top 30 ‘most watched’ baseball cards on eBay.

Pujols Bowman Chrome Auto rookie cardThe premier Pujols rookie card is the 2001 Bowman Chrome autograph, numbered to 500.  A BGS 9 graded example pushed past $2600 with more than three days left in the bidding.

The hottest Albert Pujols cards are typically those bearing a signature, either from his rookie season or a memorabilia card from a high end product distributed in more recent years.

On Tuesday morning, I chatted with ESPN’s Mint Condition about the market for Pujols rookie cards and memorabilia, which may be heading back upward considering the start the Angels’ slugger has had this season.

Below is a real time list of the hottest Pujols cards on eBay right now.
