Investment Rating: 7.0


Overview

The future looks strong for Yoenis Cespedes cards and memorabilia. The Cuban slugger made an immediate impact upon starting for the Oakland Athletics, hitting three home runs in his first five games. Althgouh he showed flashes of greatness with the A's, Cespedes was traded to the the Boston Red Sox midway through the 2014 season.

Playing for Cuba at the 2009 World Baseball Classic, collectors already had a handful of Yoenis Cespedes cards to chase before he even signed his first major league contract.

Cespedes' knack for the long ball should make him popular with collectors, particularly if he continues to hit towering shots. Cespedes gained a taste of national attention by winning the 2013 Home Run Derby, facing off in the finals against another 2012 rookie, Bryce Harper. He also won the 2014 Home Run Derby.

The speedy outfielder should prove to be exciting to watch for years to come. The highlight reels that follow him will help him garner widespread attention, especially while playing for the large market Boston Red Sox.

Yoenis Cespedes rookie cards can be found in many 2012 products. He also signed many autographed inserts, making his signature not too difficult to find.

It is worth noting that Cespedes' World Baseball Classic cards show a different spelling for his first name - Yoennis.
