Juan Soto 2021 Diamond Kings Downtown (raw)

Increase: 128.44%

Last Sale: $302.68

Prior Sale: $132.50

With the lockout over and spring ball in full swing, it is only right to see some of the brightest and best young stars in baseball seeing price increases. The 23 year old outfielder already has a World Series and selected to two All-MLB first teams. What is impressive about this massive increase is the fact it is an unlicensed card.

Tua Tagovailoa 2020 Optic Downtown (raw)

Increase: 99.44%

Last Sale: $710

Prior Sale: $356

While it is just a coincidence that another downtown card is being featured, what is  not a coincidence is the fact that Tua's prices have gone up in the last day. The Dolphins trading for Tyreek Hill gives Tua another weapon. The 6x pro bowler will be joining newly acquired running back Chase Edmonds in addition to tight end Mike Gesicki and second year wide receiver Jaylen Waddle. In a make or break year for Tua, the Dolphins have equipped him with more than enough weapons to succeed.

Shohei Ohtani 2018 Topps Chrome Update Debut (PSA 10)

Increase: 41.18%

Last Sale: $300

Prior Sale: $218.5

The reigning 2021 AL MVP is truly a jack of all trades, nobody since Babe Ruth has been able to do what Ohtani did last season. With Mike Trout coming back healthy and the addition of many promising players in free agency, the Angels will try to finally make the playoffs. While Debut cards typically sell for significantly less than the true base, this sale should be a good sign for those who might hold 2018 flagship true base Ohtani 10s.
