Hottest Ronald Acuna Baseball Cards

According to Baseball America Ronald Acuna was the number one prospect in baseball entering the 2018 season. Born in Venezeula, the Atlanta Braves outfielder is the kingpin of a deep and talented roster of youngsters in the organization. His talent and accomplishments in the minor leagues have given Braves fans something to look forward to and collectors have begun to take note of the handful of cards he has had issued so far.

Here is a look at some Acuna baseball cards issued thus far–and a live list of the hottest  auctions on eBay.

2016 Early Releases

Acuna signed with the Braves in 2014, but unlike some prospects he did not have any immediate card releases. His first cards would be released in 2016 when he was included in 2016 Topps Heritage Minors where he is depicted as a member of the Single-A Rome Braves of the South Atlantic League. He did not sign for the set and other than the standard color parallels he had no additional cards produced.

2017 Prospect Cards

2017 saw Acuna’s inclusion in a number of prospect sets, which included his first autograph cards. Of these cards the most popular was included in 2017 Bowman Chrome, which were signed on card. Topps also included him in 2017 Bowman2017 Bowman Best2017 Bowman Chrome Draft.

When considering all of the various parallel cards in each set, Acuna had nearly 100 different autograph cards, with a little less than half being the preferred on card variety.  If your budget doesn’t allow for the high price autographs, there’s always the non-auto Chrome, which looks the same but doesn’t have his scribble. 

He also has autographs inside Bowman’s Best, with the ‘Best of 17’ autographs probably the top option since they’re on-card.  Again, there are several serial-numbered parallels in the mix, too.

It was rival Panini that produced the most Acuna cards in ’17, all of which were included in the company’s 2017 Elite Extra Edition.  These are among the lowest cost Acuna cards on the market.

2018 Ronald Acuna Rookie Cards

By the end of the 2017 season Acuna was playing for the Triple-A Gwinnett Braves and he began the 2018 season in the minor leagues but was called up early in the season.  That meant a big surge in official rookie cards hitting the market at just about every price level.  Topps was able to put Acuna and Gleyber Torres in Series 2 but only as short prints.  You can also find him in Topps Chrome, Bowman Chrome Mega Boxes, Clearly Authentic (autographs), Allen & Ginter and Stadium Club, among others.  As always, look for the “RC” logo on the front of his “official” Topps-branded rookie cards but he’s also in Panini’s baseball issues.
