MLB: Shohei Ohtani card sells at record auction price

The greatest story in MLB during 2021 it was undoubtedly Shohei Ohtani, who finally blew up how the great phenomenon everyone expected him to be when he signed with the Los Angeles Angels in 2018, winning the AL MVP unanimously, as well as a multitude of awards for the best of the year. Without a doubt, everything related to him is now “more valuable” than before, including their collectible cards.

Although there are cards that have been sold for millionaire amounts in the not so distant past, those of the Japanese are rising in value like foam and recently according to information from the Twitter account PWCC, which is dedicated to reporting on these types of transactions, reported that an Ohtani card was just auctioned for $ 312,000.

This is the highest amount that has been paid for an Ohtani card, which although it is a lot of money, is far from the highest amount that has been paid for a baseball card in history, which was one of the legendary pitcher Honus Wagner dating from 1909, for which an astronomical $ 3.12 million was paid in 2016.

Without a doubt, in the future Ohtani’s cards will rise in value, more so if he continues to impress the world of baseball as he did in 2021.

I started as a rookie on Al Bat in early 2018 and I’m going into my third season covering Major League Baseball as a web reporter. I am a fan of the San Francisco Giants, a number one defender of Barry Bonds and a critic of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Fernando Tatis Jr., Juan Soto and Ronald Acuña are the future of baseball, Mike Trout is overrated, and the Astros deserved to be taken away from the World Series for cheating. Besides baseball, I also enjoy soccer, football, basketball, and just about any other game that includes a ball or a ball. I am also an amateur musician, penniless gamer and very nerdy. Graduated in journalism from the University of Guadalajara, I graduated in 2017. Born in the shrimp capital of the world, Escuinapa, Sinaloa. I lived in Australia for a while; i survived giant spiders, tasmanian devils and fought a kangaroo and didn’t die trying.
