Exploding onto the collecting scene, Shohei Ohtani cards have electrified the market to start the 2018 season but that is not a surprise for many who saw it coming even before he joined the Los Angeles Angels. Although it is fair to wonder if the dual threat can maintain his early success on the mound and at the plate, Shohei Ohtani cards are expected to dominate 2018.
Helped by the big market he plays in and considerable coverage of his move to Major League Baseball, Ohtani's cards started drawing mainstream interest in 2017, but really took off in 2018 with his MLB debut and the many Shohei Ohtani rookie cards.
Naturally, his signed baseball cards are generally the most popular and valuable of the choices, especially 2018Bowman Baseball. While they are found in limited numbers, every new set of 2018 baseball cards seems to add to the Ohtani autograph supply. You also can't overlook the early Japanese releases that began in 2013, which supply even more options that pre-date his official MLB rookies.

What value would you place on an Ohtani one of one Donruss Diamond King pitching
What is the newest 2018 Bowman Chrome Orange Refractor, where Ohtani is the batter, going to be worth?
Is the Ohtani 2018 topps heritage high number gold refractor going to excede the 2k mark? There are 2 listed on ebay for more that 2k. These seem to be his most valuable cards. Any thoughts
Bowman Chrome is easily the most valuable of the 2018 Ohtani cards. However, the Heritage Gold Refractor is certainly a strong option given there are only five copies.
I pulled a legend in the making Ohtani out of a pack of Topps update today and the picture is different from his other LITM card. Anyone else know about this?
Nothing I have seen. If you email me a pic of the front and back, I will take a look. trey at cardboardconnection.com
