Ryan Braun Cards, Rookie Cards and Autographed Memorabilia Guide

Overview

A once beloved All-American collegiate athlete from the University of Miami, he attended the school on an academic scholarship. Braun turned down similar offers from Stanford and Cal-Berkley. He went on to become a Golden Spikes finalist and the NCAA Atlantic Coast Conference Player of the Year in 2005. Braun was drafted by the Milwaukee Brewers that same year as the fifth overall pick in MLB's Amateur Draft. Once widely coveted by collectors, Ryan Braun cards and memorabilia have taken a major hit thanks to his admitted use of performance enhancing drugs.

Braun progressed quickly through the Brewers' farm system before making his MLB debut in 2007. He went on to have one of the most dominant rookie years in the history of the game, smashing club records in many categories. So impressive were his stats that  he was named the National League Rookie of the Year. Ryan Braun cards and memorabilia were also strong sellers, at least until he was suspended in 2013 in connection with PEDs.

Braun is a homegrown talent the small-market Brewers have come to rely on to be competitive. He possesses all the skills and attributes that define a five-tool player. Already a four-time All-Star and three-time Silver Slugger Award winner, Braun's ability to hit for power and average while still maintaining strong marks in OBS and slugging percentage make him a valuable asset for any team.

Braun has just five rookie cards, which is somewhat unusual for a player in this era. All come from products issued in 2005.  His cards, particularly those with high professional grades, see solid demand. Game-used bats and autographed items are also at the top of speculators' lists of worthwhile investments for the young Braun.

While the future for Ryan Braun cards was good, his connection with PEDs has caused irreparable harm to some, limiting his overall potential even if he does comeback clean and strong.
