Best Baseball Cards to Buy for 2020

ANDREW BENINTENDI(Shop eBay)

Market Summary: Benintendi’s card values have slid over the past season due to his sub-par statistics last year. I believe a rebound is ahead and with Betts gone “Benny” should benefit and have a chance to fill the box scores this season. Benintendi has always been popular with collectors since his rise from the minors and BTC expects a strong market rebound. Benintendi’s card values have started showing an uptick since the beginning of January.
