Unlike Adley Rustschman, CJ Abrams is a 2019 first-round selection that definitely DID NOT disappoint in his debut season down on the farm. In 142 ABS in 2019, Abrams displayed that hit/run combo that has all the scouts drooling by turning in a .401 average along with 15 stolen bases. Given, all but 8 of those ABs came in the AZ rookie league, but in the 2 games Abrams played in A Ball he continued the trend by adding a couple of hits and a double. Long story short, there are plenty of reasons to be confident about picking up a CJ Abrams rookie card before this year’s minor league season begins! Whenever that may be.

2019 Bowman Chrome Draft (Buy on eBay)
A simple image of Abrams alert and ready to field anything that comes his way highlights his most valuable card to date. The 2019 Chrome Draft set has a boatload of options to choose from. The base card will only set you back about $10 so if you spread your money out think about picking up a handful of these on the cheap. Meanwhile, the Refractors and autographed cards can be worth several hundred. If you REALLY want to go big on just one card look for a rare autographed Refractor like the card above as some of these sell for more than $1,000.

CJ Abrams Rookie Card Investment Strategy
Short (1 year or less)
With many of the players above him likely being called up in 2021, CJ Abrams could easily find himself as a Top 3 prospect heading into next season if he truns in a solid year on the farm. If that happens you card should be worth FAR more than it is now by the time spring training starts in 2022. With Abrams hard contact ability, speed, and emerging power, this doesn’t seem like a stretch. Not in the least. 9/10
Mediuim (1 to 3 years)
We woudln’t fault you for thinking a couple of years out on this investment as 2022 is Abrams’ MLB ETA. As long as he performs in 2021, thinking about bigger profits down the road is a completly viable option. 8/10
Long (3 years plus)
While he is the number 8 prospect in the land, that doesn’t guarentee Abrams will make a big impact once he’s called up. If any. The Big Show has been the ruin of way too many top prospects to bank on any big league suscess. Even for the biggest of big name prospects. Watch closley over the next couple of years before considering anything further. N/A
