The MLB All-Star Game is nearly upon us and that gives us all a chance to take a break and assess the season so far and watch the home runs fly in tonight’s Home Run Derby.
One of those sluggers is Cincinnati’s Adam Duvall, who has 23 homers out of absolute nowhere and nearly no cardboard to show for it. As previously noted here on The Buzz, Duvall’s first Rookie Card arrived in 2016 Topps Series 2. And to show how off the radar he’s been he’s a third-year big-leaguer with just one past Bowman card appearance — no autographs — and this Rookie Card is one that doesn’t even have an RC logo. That probably hasn’t helped sales, but some rarities are sellers.
There are other big names in the hobby this season who have played well — in fact there are a lot of decent showings — but here are 15 who have impressed on the field and should be noticed when it comes to cardboard.
